Get More: News, Renewals

Vampire Diaries RenewedThe CW has made its first scripted pick-ups for the 2012-13 TV season, granting early renewals to Supernatural, The Vampire Diaries and 90210.

The Vampire Diaries will head into its fourth season, 90210 will return for its fifth and Supernatural will be entering its eighth. TVLine’s Renewal Scorecard has thusly been updated.

Still awaiting official word on their fates at The CW are Gossip Girl, Nikita, The Secret Circle, Ringer and Hart of Dixie.

The Supernatural announcement doesn’t come as a huge surprise. Last month, it was reported that showrunner Sera Gamble would be stepping down to focus on development. Although the show had not yet been renewed for Season 8 at that time, a replacement — former co-producer Jeremy Carver — was already named, a good sign that the series would be back. Producer Todd Aronauer added fuel to the fire this Thursday morning by tweeting, then deleting, word of the show’s renewal.

Supernatural‘s current season wraps up on May 18 and features a cliffhanger ending that leaves two fan faves in a very unexpected place. As for what the future holds, Misha Collins shared with TVLine that he’d like to return as angel Castiel.

“I have told [executive producer] Sera [Gamble] that I would love to come back next season if that is something that works out for everybody’s schedule,” he said. “If it’s in the cards, it would be great. I don’t know yet how things are going to play out.”

The CW also has several pilots under consideration for next season’s schedule, including Arrow, Beauty and the Beast (with Smallville’s Kristin Kreuk), First Cut (with The Good Wife‘s Mamie Gummer and Smallville‘s Justin Hartley), The Carrie Diaries and the Hunger Games-esque The Selection.

  • Go 90210! People who are “shocked” by this obviously don’t understand how ratings work. Someone who works for the show and Jessica Lowndes said it’s getting a full 24 episode season. Bring on season 5 and the 100th episode!

  • This goes to show what a lousy network the CW Network really is. Shows like SPN are stale. It is akin to a lame horse that needs to be shot and put out of its misery.

  • omg…no way. TVD was a nobrainer(hello best rating show on the network) but 90210?? It should get the axe along with GG. It’s just a show were a circle of friends become enemies, then friends again then enemies again..and not to mention have sex with one another. The story, if closely analyzed, is just running in circles. And they don’t rate high either, considering they supposedly have loyal followers. Nikita and TSC definitely deserve renewals over GG and 90210. I’m also hoping for a Ringer renewal. as long as they haven’t officially cancelled it, you can’t blame a man for hoping.

  • Look for Supernatural to get this season PLUS a season 9 to finish…Jeremy Carver got a 2 year contract to come back…you wouldn’t do that unless the show was going to go on for 2 more years!

  • why was 90120 renewed? sure some people will say that it’s got ok ratings, but that never stopped the CW before (see: veronica mars which an average of like 2.8 million or something in its final season – and it’s first on the cw). anyway, i used to watch it, but i got so bored i just gave up at the beginning of this season. i’d rather they cancelled it while it was still doing ok and make room for some other shows to get picked up
