With The Vampire Diaries, Arrow and Supernatural already booked for 2013-2014, and 90210 preparing to say farewell, a new report suggests that The CW may soon have an important announcement regarding its remaining programs:
They are ALL coming back!
While ratings for Nikita, Hart of Dixie, Beauty and the Beast and The Carrie Diaries aren't anything to get overly excited about on their own, Deadline details how The CW makes a great deal of money off its online streaming deals.
Aside from ad-based replays on the network's official website, The CW signed a five-year, $75 million deal with Hulu last year and another rich contract with Netflix in 2011.
Most of the aforementioned shows - The Carrie Diaries in particular - perform well on these platforms, giving the network incentive to bring them all back in some form (13 episodes each, perhaps?) next season.
Look for announcements to be made over the coming weeks, while the full network schedule will be unveiled in mid-May at The CW Upfront in New York City.
