The CW President Mark Pedowitz took the stage this morning at the Television Critics Association press tour and touched on a number of topics related to his network, from showing saying goodbye to shows he hopes say hello in the near future.

Read on for a detailed rundown of the executive's Q&A session with reporters...

The final season of Gossip Girl will consist of 10 episodes and the network may air a One Tree Hill-esque retrospective. Said Pedowitz: "I'm a big believer in allowing the audience to say farewell to their shows. It’s important for us on this side of the fence to give a satisfactory ending.”

Pedowitz says a Supernatural Season 8 renewal was a "no-brainer" and he's hoping for a ninth season at the very least. He also confirmed that Misha Collins will appear in a minimum of eight upcoming episodes.

Why did The Secret Circle fail? "Not enough good-looking men. Not enough sense of humor."

The L.A. Complex is performing well digitally and Pedowitz plans to air all Season 2 episodes.

Clearly an executive who actually watches his network's programs, Pedowitz said of The Vampire Diaries Season 4: "There's always new cast members and those who are dead can always come back to life."

He would love to see the network air some kind of Hunger Games-like series and has had phone calls about turning the brutal Japanese film Battle Royale into a series.
