The CW Orders Full Seasons for 3 New Shows
Monday, November 11, 2013
It's good news for all three new shows on the CW this fall. The network has officially given full-season orders to The Originals, The Tomorrow People and Reign.
The network's trio of new scripted shows have all performed decently in the ratings and got orders for additional scripts prior to this full-season pick-up. The extra nine episodes for all three means they'll each get 22 episodes this year.
The Originals has been doing particularly well in the ratings, staying even with Supernatural on Tuesday nights and getting a big boost from DVR viewers (likely due to its stiff competition in NCIS and Marvel's Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.).
The extensions also solidify the CW's spring line-up. Aside from these three pick-ups, returning favorites Supernatural, Arrow, The Vampire Diaries, Hart of Dixie and Beauty and the Beast are on tap for full seasons. That leaves two open hours for new dramas Star-Crossed and The 100. The Carrie Diaries only has a 13-episode order for its second season.
The Originals airs Tuesdays at 8pm, The Tomorrow People airs Wednesdays at 9pm and Reign airs Thursdays at 9pm.
