The CW Announces Additional Early Pickups!
Good news for some CW fans! The CW has announced early pickups for a second season of “Beauty and the Beast” and a third season of “Hart of Dixie.”
Along with those two renewals, The CW also picked up “The Originals,” a highly anticipated spin-off of “The Vampire Diaries.”
Mark Pedowitz, President of The CW announced the pickups on Friday. “As soon as we saw last night’s episode of “The Vampire Diaries,” he said, we knew we wanted more of “The Originals” – Julie Plec and Kevin Williamson have done a fantastic job with “The Vampire Diaries,” which is as fast-paced and well-written as ever, and Julie has created an equally compelling world for “The Originals.”
Pedowitz commented on the other two renewals, “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.”
Additionally, The CW has also given advance orders to “Arrow,” “The Vampire Diaries” and “Supernatural” for next season.
You can catch all of these shows right here on the CW Philly!
