The CW just renewed five of its dramas, two of which are new series. ‘Arrow’, ‘The Vampire Diaries’, ‘Supernatural’, ‘The Originals’, and ‘Reign’ will all return next season.
The renewals aren't surprising. Ratings have been good on Tuesday nights with the combination of ‘Supernatural’ and ‘The Originals’ while 'The Vampire Diaries' continues to hold strong on Thursday nights, holding at #2 in its time slot for young adult viewers. While not as impressive as the other shows, ‘Arrow’ and freshman series ‘Reign’ are bringing in enough ratings that executives want to give them another year.
