The CW has given many fans a reason to celebrate Lincoln's birthday a day early:
The Vampire Diaries, Arrow and Supernatural have all been renewed for 2013-2014.
The network's highest-rated shows (by far), none of the pick-ups come as a surprise, as Mark Pedowitz said in a statement announcing the news:
“We said last year that one of our goals was to establish building blocks to grow on, and now with our new hit Arrow and fan favorite Supernatural on Wednesday night, and the continued success of The Vampire Diaries on Thursday, we’ve been able to do that. Not only do Arrow, Supernatural and The Vampire Diaries perform well on-air, they’re also extremely successful for us both digitally and socially. I’m thrilled to have all three shows returning to our schedule next season.”
