In a not so surprising move, The CW announced early renewals for Gossip Girl, The Vampire Diaries, Supernatural, America’s Next Top Model and 90210.
While ratings for Supernatural and Vampire Diaries have been very strong this season (VD gets 4 million viewers!), Gossip Girl and 90210 both suffered huge losses in viewership. Still, The CW stood by its flagship show (perhaps because the actors’ contracts require one more season?) and the relaunch of the 90’s classic.
Still waiting for renewal is Nikita and One Tree Hill; both shows have had higher ratings than Gossip Girl and 90210 so their futures look pretty good right now.
As for Hellcats, the ratings have dropped so dramatically — it’s The CW’s least watched show, behind the already cancelled Life Unexpected — that it looks like it’s staring down cancellation. Poor Ashley Tisdale and Aly Michalka! Just when we thought they had a winner!
Hopefully next season will bring more great twists and turns on Vampire Diaries and some big changes in the writing department for 90210 and Gossip Girl! Otherwise, bad plots and major cast members transistioning into film careers could mean that next season is GG‘s last!
Are you excited to hear that GG and Vampire Diaries have been renewed? Are you hoping that Hellcats‘ ratings don’t mean sudden death? Tell me in the comments!
