  • Elijah Mikaelson
  • Reign Cast Pic
  • The Tomorrow People Cast Pic

Said CW President Mark Pedowitz in announcing the renewals:

“In just a few seasons, we have built a much stronger primetime schedule.  Our on-air ratings are up year to year, and our digital viewing continues to grow exponentially.

"We're excited about the creative momentum the producers have established for all three of our new series, and now our fans will have the chance to see the full stories unfold for them this season. With the additional episodes ordered, plus two new dramas and new reality for midseason, we’ll be able to continue our commitment to adding more original programming all year long.”

Overall this fall, The CW is up 9% in total viewers and 10% in the key advertising demographic of 18-49-year olds.

All three just-renewed shows air new episodes this week.

The like the Originals because you can tell what is going on unlike TVD which I don't even think the writers know what is going on. Reign is interesting but the music sometimes is too much. Love Megan Fellows as the evil Queen. Is she evil or is she just trying to keep her son safe? The girl under the bed last week was really creepy! The Tomorrow People is not clicking with me.

Why can't the CW run from 8-11 like the other networks? They have too many big shows with practically no air time to run them.

Awesome, this has made my day. I love both Reign and The Originals Both are my favorite shows this Fall, enjoying both more than old faves Vampire Diaries and Glee which are both boring at the moment. I want to be enjoying the vampire diaries but am So over the Silas storyline. The Originals is much better written, as Reign is. I'm so glad they are picked up for full seasons. :)
