After all the noise and going back and forth on whether The CW is or is not going to do anything about two of its major tentpole shows, the wait is finally over.

Today The CW President Dawn Ostroff announced that Supernatural and Smallville were renewed for another season.

That makes it season 9 for Smallville, and Supernatural will be headed into season 5. Woohoo!

I’m guessing this means that the contract haggling between the network and Tom Welling is finally over and the show will go on.

The announcements also mean that despite what folks were wondering, The CW will be around for another year. Yes, there were concerns apparently.

There are no details about any story or character developments on either show so we’ll just have to sit on the edge of our seats and wait.

Wait to see what happens with the Winchester brothers and if they survive their brotherly feud and if Clark will…  well, you know.  What it is we are all wondering about? Like I even have to say it. Right? Tell me I don’t have to say it.

Expectations are that both shows will remain in their Thursday night time slots.
