The first wave of The CW’s early pickups are in, and — naturally — The Vampire Diaries has been renewed for a Season 5. 

Arrow and Supernatural will also return for more seasons. Mark Pedowitz, president of The CW, said in a statement, “We said last year that one of our goals was to establish building blocks to grow on, and now with our new hit Arrow and fan favorite Supernatural on Wednesday night, and the continued success of The Vampire Diaries on Thursday, we’ve been able to do that.”

According to the press release,TVD is The CW’s highest rated series in target demographics, including adults 18-34 and women 18-34. Digitally and socially, the show is one of the network’s top-ranked as well.

Now, all The CW has to do is make The Originals spin-off into a done deal, and we’ll be all set!
