CW Picks Up Our Fave Shows!


Guess what, TV fans?! We've got more new shows on the horizon! The CW Network has picked up three additional dramas for next season, including the first new series order of the season with THE ORIGINALS, the highly anticipated spin-off of The Vampire Diaries.  The network also gave advance orders for the second season of BEAUTY AND THE BEAST and the third season of HART OF DIXIE.

Mark Pedowitz, President of The CW, announced the pickup on the new shows Friday, April 26. He said:

"As soon as we saw last night's episode of 'The Vampire Diaries,' we knew we wanted more of 'The Originals'. We're also very excited to bring back 'Beauty And The Beast' and 'Hart of Dixie' for next season – both series continue to be creatively strong and compelling, and their fans are incredibly passionate. I'm very happy to have all three series on the schedule for next season."

So are we Mark!

BEAUTY AND THE BEAST, starring Kristin Kreuk and Jay Ryan, was this year's People's Choice Award winner for Favorite New Drama. HART OF DIXIE, starring Rachel Bilson, is one of The CW's top performers on digital platforms, behind only THE VAMPIRE DIARIES. These are some great shows and we can't wait to see where they go in the coming seasons!
