SUPERNATURAL, THE VAMPIRE DIARIES, & GOSSIP GIRL All Receive Early Pickups from The CW - Give Me My Remote : Give Me My Remote


February 16, 2010 by  

Fans of SUPERNATURAL, THE VAMPIRE DIAIRES, GOSSIP GIRL, 90210 and AMERICA’S NEXT TOP MODEL can all breathe a sigh of relief – The CW has picked up these shows for next season.

Coming off an impressive freshman season, THE VAMPIRE DIARIES was a bit of a no brainer as an early pick-up. The breakout show has brought a new fan following and incredible ratings to The CW.

The CW show with perhaps the most passionate fanbase is SUPERNATURAL. While it wasn’t shocking that the network is bringing the show back for a sixth season, there was some doubt as creator Eric Kripke had been on the record saying that the SUPERNATURAL story arc was designed for only five seasons.  As long as Kripke was on board with the creative direction for a sixth season then I’m sure it’s going to be another fantastic(and creepy) year for the Winchester brothers.

GOSSIP GIRL isn’t necessarily the buzz worthy show it was during its first year, but it’s still making headlines.  GG has been The CW’s signature show for the past few years so news of an early pick-up isn’t too surprising.  GOSSIP GIRL is still one of my guiltiest pleasures of the TV week, so personally this is fab news!

Other CW hits – AMERICA’S NEXT TOP MODEL and the all new 90210 also received the early thumbs up from the network.

In year’s past, networks didn’t typically make their announcements of their season pickups until the spring Upfronts.  Fans of the CW’s other shows, such as this season’s  LIFE UNEXPECTED shouldn’t fret just yet because their show didn’t get an early pickup. Let’s wait until we get a it closer to the Upfronts before we start busting out the online petitions, or sending bong lamps to Dawn Ostroff.

Thoughts on the CW’s early pickups.  Are SUPERNATURAL fans excited about this news or were you ready to see the show wrap up? Am I the only person that could care less about AMERICA’S NEXT TOP MODEL?

    Part of me wants to not be excited because I can’t imagine what they will do after this season but I have learned to just trust Kripke and enjoy the ride. Since he will be on board, I am cool with it.

    Very excited about Vampire Diaries. I hope they keep my two favorite shows on Thursday night. I really look forward to this pairing now.

    Really hope Life Unexpected gets picked up, I think it has potential to be a great show. I think they need to give it time. The CW has had some awful shows and I don’t want another quality program to disappear too quickly. I wish they would pick a different day and / or time slot for the show. It’s on too late and Monday is a hectic tv day.

    I agree with Patty. I would prefer for Kripke and team to make Supernatural a neat 5-season package. But, of course, I will watch as long as Kripke and the boys are involved.
