The CW has announced that two of television’s fan-favorite series, Supernatural and The Vampire Diaries, have just been given early pick-ups for next season.

While this renewal announcement isn’t likely to surprise fans of either series, this early reveal speaks to the confidence that The CW has in its current lineup. And, more importantly, shows fans just how excited The CW is about continuing both series.

Since it’s move to Friday night at the beginning of season 5, Supernatural has been able to thwart television’s infamous “death-slot” (where series go to be canceled). Combining its fan-power with that of Smallville, Supernatural has been able to keep a good majority of its original Thursday night audience.

With series stars Jensen Ackles and Jared Padalecki already signed on for seasons 7 and 8, and The CW president Dawn Ostroff stating that she’d be “shocked if we didn’t pick it up,” the announcement of Supernatural season 7 has always been a “when” not “if” scenario.

Aside from the TV show, Supernatural may very well be one of the most popular brands currently on television. With novels , season guides, monster guides, calendars, t-shirts, mugs, toys, comic books,  a Japanese anime and monthly fan conventions all over the world, one might rightly assume that even if Supernatural’s television ratings did begin to dwindle, the franchise itself is still lucrative enough to garner renewal. Fortunately, we’re not faced with that situation – yet.

As for The Vampire Diaries, this blood sucking series certainly has some form of invulnerability. Stemming from the brain of Scream creator Kevin Williamson, The Vampire Diaries quickly found its audience amongst the vampire-hungry television audience seeking storylines similar to that of Twilight and True Blood.

What’s more impressive is that The CW decided to put The Vampire Diaries up against television’s proverbial leviathan, American Idol – and it survived. Call it dumb-luck or an overt confidence in their core audience, but when up against American Idol, The Vampire Diaries has been able to hold on to almost 80% of its viewers. Considering both series tend to focus on the same audience demographic, that’s an extremely impressive feat.

With many of The CW’s series renewals still up in the air, and a fair share of new shows set to be announced in May, it’ll be interesting to see how (or if) The CW will rearrange their programming line-up to make sure that they maintain this year’s success.

Supernatural airs on Fridays @9pm on The CW
The Vampire Diaries airs on Thursdays @8pm The CW

  1. Thank god,my favourite shows have a history of being shut down in their prime, but not this one!! Long Live Supernatural!

  2. I love both shows and i am beyond happy that there continuing it. :-) I never want them to end. i admit for Supernatural i was like ok what is there after Lucifer is sent back in the cage, but then i just sat there and watched the rest of season six (manly because of Jensen Ackles) and it was really good. I go out of my way to make sure i see every episode for both shows. There amazing, i already show the set of The Vampire Diaries now i wanna see Supernatural, if thats possable… and i hope i can meet Ian Somerhalder, Jensen Ackles, Jared Padalecki(sp?) and dont forget Misha so i can tell them how amazing they are!! They better keep the shows i need to see more!! <3 :)

  4. I personally love both shows

  5. I really love this show just hope they bring back Bobby and cas I love them just as much as sam and dean and I’m really excited to hear there’s gonna b a season 8 yea!!!!!

  6. I’ve already posted a comment but I just wanted to say: I don’t really care about vampire diaries- the tv show is Wayy different from the book- I understand that it kind of has to be but now its just trying to be 3 different shows at once and it just doesn’t work like that.

    Supernatural on the other hand- that is an amazing tv show!!!!! Cas is coming back episode 17 that was kinda viral so I don’t know how anybody missed it… And nobody is sure about bobby, although it’s leaning towards him coming back

  7. Bueno , menos mal nos escucharon
    Porque los Fans tenemos siempre la voz y el voto en cuanto a las preferencias, y debemos decir que series como Supernatural, que llenan todas las expectativas del televidente siempre tendrán nuestro apoyo, debemos felicitar su ingenio y creatividad, y por supuesto a su elenco que hace un trabajo excepcional.

  8. hello my name’s inma I’m a fan of the serie “sobrenatural” and I last night i finished seeing the seventh season and i left with a very bad taste in my mouth to see that dean winchester was in purgatory hopefully put the eighth season that the winchester brothers to finally be together again because if this is the end, it would be frustating and i hope with anxiety to see it in my computer since i live in Spain specifically in the canary islands and not be in that channel as televisarian (if they include it)
