That noise you just heard was the squee of three million or so SUPERNATURAL fangirls learning that their favorite Winchester brothers, alongside GOSSIP GIRL, ONE TREE HILL, 90210, AMERICA’S NEXT TOP MODEL and SMALLVILLE have all been given early renewals for next season by The CW.
“As we continue to build The CW Network as a destination for young women, these six shows have clearly contributed to strengthening our schedule and our brand identity,” said The CW president Dawn Ostroff in a statement released to the media. “By securing these signature hits for next season, we’re furthering our commitment to deliver high-quality, original programming to our viewers, advertisers and affiliates.”
Unfortunately, noticeably absent from the announcement were pickups for high-quality scripted fare such as PRIVILEGED, REAPER, THE GAME and EVERYBODY HATES CHRIS. Whose fates are looking more and more perilous thanks to the increasing levels of buzz surrounding the CW’s upcoming development slate which includes such original ideas* like a GOSSIP GIRL spin-off, a MELROSE PLACE re-boot and VAMPIRE DIARIES, the network’s not at all subtle attempt at Twilight: The Television Series.
