The CW made a trio of major programming announcements this afternoon:
- It has ordered The Vampire Diaries spinoff The Originals to series.
- It has renewed Hart of Dixie for Season 3.
- And Beauty and the Beast for Season 2.
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.
