CW Renewal Odds: Network President Speaks on Supernatural, Nikita and More

at . Comments

At the Television Critics Association press tour over the weekend, CW President Mark Pedowitz touched on a number of subjects, from The Vampire Diaries spinoff to the current state of other network programs.

We know TVD is coming back. Same for Arrow.

But those shows may be the only sure things on the 2012-2013 schedule. Here's a look at what Pedowitz said about other series, along with our odds on whether or not they will be renewed...

SUPERNATURAL: "“We are pleased with how Wednesday night completely has worked out with Arrow being a bona fide hit and Supernatural actually gaining viewers back again. I think creatively the show’s in a great place."

BEAUTY AND THE BEAST: “We’re very pleased in terms of where it’s going creatively… We believe the show has a very long run in front of it. We’ve made no announcements about a second season. But based on the passion of the fans both on the E! Online and the People’s Choice Awards, we think we have something in this epic love story between Cat and Vincent.”

90210: "I’m a big believer in giving fans, as you can tell by what we did for One Tree Hill and Gossip Girl, of giving fans a very satisfactory conclusion between a retrospective and a satisfactory ending."

HART OF DIXIE: "One of our fun shows. It stands out there on a very tough Tuesday night. It has a very strong DVR presence and VOD, as well as online. Very pleased with the creative direction.”

NIKITA: "When we moved it to 8 o’clock [Fridays], it actually started to perform better … it’s performing on par to our expectation. I’m a fan of the show. Like the show. But again, it’s performing at par.”

My guess is that ALL will be renewed besides BATB. Down the line, Carrie Diaries and Cult are also gone. With GG and Emily Owens out, everything else is locked in for renewal (including TVD and Arrow), which only leaves fresh pilots for September/October and January/February.
