The CW Renews Supernatural And Four Other Series

The Winchester brothers will live to hunt monsters another year, as The CW announced Tuesday evening that it has picked up Supernatural for a seventh season. The network also gave early renewals to The Vampire Diaries, Gossip Girl, 90210 and America’s Next Top Model.

The CW has yet to make decisions on Hellcats, Nikita and One Tree Hill. Smallville, of course, ends its 10-season run on May 13.

“I have good news & bad news,” Supernatural co-star Misha Collins wrote on Twitter. “The good news is the reality show I like about the two brothers who take acid & hunt ghosts gets a 7th season. The bad news is … brace yourselves … they were out of my fleur de sel caramel ice cream at the grocery store just now. I am beside myself.”

Although fans of Supernatural have long been accustomed to waiting on pins and needles each spring as renewal announcements came down, this time another season seemed virtually inevitable. That’s in part because of the show’s strong performance since its move in September to Fridays, where it’s contributed to a 60-percent increase in viewers.

But there’s also the matter of a programming hole left by the end of Smallville, which moved with Supernatural and five other series from The WB to The CW in 2006. To lose both long-running, and solidly performing, series in one season would be a blow to the network, to say nothing of its Friday lineup.

Supernatural airs Fridays at 9 p.m. ET/PT.

    No offense to Supernatural, but hasn’t this series been done to death by now?

    Insoasmuch I as I like the series, I’m really amazed that they’re coming back for a 7th season. ;-)

    The Vampire Diaries and Supernatural getting renewed is the only thing I care about!

    It’s still a good show (Supernatural) so I’m happy to hear. As long as they have a plan in mind. I still think they should go up against a Cthulu-type threat.

    Supernatural coming back was pretty much set in stone, it’s a show still with good ratings, strong fandom, and recently getting great press from various news outlets, CW has no reason to cancel this veteran show especially with Smallville already set to exit. I’m actually amazed that people would think this show isn’t coming back. All the signs were long pointing towards renewal just as the same with Vampire Diaries.

    As long as it’s good, it isn’t being “done to death”.

    “Although fans of Supernatural have long been accustomed to waiting on pins and needles each spring as renewal announcements came down”

    It got renewed in January last year, so not really true. I get what you mean, and I’m being nitpickish, but still. Not EACH spring.

    Please renew Nikita as well..I just cant imagine my life without Supernatural, VD & Nikita! Plzz plzz! When a show like 90210 can be renewed (No offence to anybody), Nikita is such a different kind of show with great potential! Fingers crossed for Nikita!
