The CW Renews The Vampire Diaries, Supernatural and 90210

at . Comments

A couple weeks before it unveils its official 2012-2013 schedule, The CW has removed a bit of mystery from its May 17 Upfronts in New York City...

... by announcing renewals today of The Vampire Diaries, Supernatural and 90210.

The Vampire Diaries will enter its fourth season in the fall, while Supernatural - whose return was assumed when it named a new showrunner last month - goes into its eighth and 90210 its fifth.

The network will now face some difficult decisions.

Gossip Girl is expected to receive a shortened final season, but the somewhat surprising renewal of 90210 doesn't bode well for Hart of Dixie, The Secret Circle or Nikita. (Sorry, Ringer fans, but we can't even pretend this series has a shot anymore.)

CW development head Thom Sherman made it clear earlier this year that he and his team are excited about a number of pilots and are looking for the network's next breakout hit. It hasn't had one since The Vampire Diaries.

Of the following options, which do you most hope gets picked up?

Matt Richenthal is the Editor in Chief of TV Fanatic. Follow him on Twitter and on Google+.


Man Ringer NEEDS to be picked up by another studio! That show is just pure awesome! CW is retarded to renew 90210 and not Ringer! I hope ABC or FOX is smart enough to pick it up


how can they choose 90210 so soon! that show is crap nowadays! I'm having a mini heart attack because gossip girl isn't mentioned.... O_o


Why the hell would 90210 get renewed? Nikita better be renewed. Only good show on CW at the moment.


OMG NO!!! 90210 is soo bad!!!
nikita is amazing with great writing and strong characters and and secret circle is only just starting to be awesome!! i love gossip girl but it has turned crap since they left high school..... and i love hart of dixie but it isnt as strong as the others !!!! ahhh CW just tell me already and put me outta my misery!


Oh by the way i guess my choice is the secret circle but only because ringer is not there.


Great!! Would be perfect if ringer was included but understand that now smg is preggers that thats prob not going to happen. Gossip girl will prob do a one tree hill so im happy!


Nikita is the easiest choice for this viewer . . . Its the best show on the cw handsFUCKINGdown.


So happy that Supernatural has been renewed. The show is awesome, and I love it


Ringer, Nikita should be cancelled cause of 0.4-0.5 demo for so long now. I would also renew GG for a short final season, Hart &SC for 13 episodes.If Nikita gets renewed, Cw deserves to go out of business next year after the regular tv season and Mark Pedowitz will deserve to be fired.Im a fan of Nikita, but the demo ratings are glad about VD,90210 being renewed. With four slots filled on the schedule(top model, VD, SPN, 90210 ), if they give GG a shortened final season, renew one of SC /HoD, there's still four spots for new shows.


I LOVE 90210, Vampire Dairies, and The Secret Circle. I hope they continue forever!!!!!!!!!!
