The CW Picks Up The Originals for Series, Renews Hart of Dixie and Beauty and the Beast

by at .

The CW made a trio of major programming announcements this afternoon:

  1. It has ordered The Vampire Diaries spinoff The Originals to series.
  2. It has renewed Hart of Dixie for Season 3.
  3. And Beauty and the Beast for Season 2.
  • The Originals Poster
  • Hart of Dixie Valentine's Day Card
  • Cat's Unromantic Valentine's

These shows join Arrow, The Vampire Diaries and Supernatural, which were also renewed for the 2013-2014 season.

It's worth noting that these pick-ups do NOT mean all hope is lost for The Carrie Diaries and Nikita. But it should be diminished a bit.

    Between "Beauty and the Beast" and "Arrow" I have been impressed by Arrow from the first episode to the the current episode.
    @Miss Love, I'm a fan of Nikita Too Though I haven't watched it in a while, I hope they won't cancel it but rather give it a decent exit.


    i LOVE Nikita. But I hope they'll renew Nikita for the last season and give the fans closure and let us have good memories of Nikita. I'm a major Vampire Diaries fan but I think it's safe to say the cure storyline is a bit of a let down and the stefan-elena-damon triangle needs to be toned down. TVD has so much potential! I really hope the writers will visit new arcs for the show and give us a new and fresh storyline. Bring back the awesome TVD that it was once before. Disagree with me all u want, I'm just giving my opinion. Yeay for Hart of Dixie return!
    I'm over Gossip Girl. Love the show but it was time for them to live happily. I was hoping for the CW to bring back The Secret Circle. The show too has so much potential!! Too bad it ended after one season :(


    Of course there's going to be a lot of changes involved with the most popular and seen shows but I mostly want to see vampire diaries get better again which still makes me feel doubt about it ever since random but boring couples popped up in the show. ;P ;P ;P


    Yay! I'm so happy for the Originals!! And beauty and the Beast!
    I can't wait for the CW to put out Originals T--shirts in their store... hopefully there will be one with Elijah (holding a heart in his hand would be great)


    Gossip Girl is never coming back. Sorry. Even the actors wanted it to end. Move on.


    I watch all this shows. Great,just "f..king" great!


    Super excited that Beauty and the Beast has been renewed. Looking forward to what the writers have in store for Vincent & Kat's love story. I agree that Nikita should also be renewed. It is such an action packed show with an underlying love story and very noble purpose-Nikita & Michael's love story and Nikita's desire to save all those forced to work in Division. This show has great writing and acting. Extremely happy that the best show on ANY channel-Supernatural-has already been renewed and that Arrow will get a 2nd season. I do wish Emily Owens, MD, had been given more time. I really liked the story line and the acting. Not that fond of TVD this season & really not interested in "The Originals".


    very happy for the originals!:) The backdoor pilot was great and hopefully the vampire diaries can move on with fresher plots now that theyre gone. Honestly, is Hart of Dixie any good ? I've heard both.


    CW, sometimes, you make the right choices. The Originals has so much potential I'm dying.

    Tvfanatic - Best choice EVER for Hart of Dixie photo. Wade makes us all quiver with joy.
