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

by at . Comments

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.

Ok I've read on a couple of different websites that Nikita is for sure going to have a 4th and final season with only 10 episodes. They've already confirmed it.


Yes! More Beauty and the Beast! Amazing show!


Glad beauty and the beast got renewed


The CW will be able to promo The Originals more as a new series next fall... Not everyone is aware right now what the network is doing. It will probably do fine. It was a good episode. I am happy they picked the show up, I'll be watching.
Also, very happy about HOD. Its a very light-hearted show that I typically look forward to every week.


The Originals will BOMB!


Despite the numbers not being great for the back door pilot for "The Originals", I think the "audition" was merely a formality. Good thing: Elijah will be back every week!


I''m extremely happy that the The Originals is going to series, can't wait till fall. I hope that TVD & TO's get to both be on Thursday's prime time schedule @ 8 &9


Damm i really wanted them to re-schedule or cancel B&B cuz to be completely honest the show is a wat of money and space. The CW is known for weak shows that last 3 seasons max and cancel almost half their rosters everyother year. People are dissing it in the media and well it seems its most popular with teenage girls. and hey im a fan miself and I am no ways dissing the network, but common canceling Nikita-their only adult attraction and international as well is kind of dumb. I hope they do a final 4th season to tie up loose ends at least. Itll be shame if they ignore the fan base


I love it the spin off of Vampire Diaries plus Supernatural I beleive there a crosover with Supernatural and Twilight of Breaking Dawn those three show will do it who know Rob Patterison join the series also so CW is a winner beats HBO Trueblood


Great news !
But what about The Selection and Oxygen ?
