Back in February, we reported here that ‘Arrow’, ‘Supernatural’ and ‘The Vampire Diaries’ received early pick-up renewals. And now, two more shows – Hart of Dixie and Beauty And the Beast – have been given early pick-up orders by The CW. The network also gave an advance season order to the new series The Originals, the spin-off series to ‘The Vampire Diaries’.

Mark Pedowitz, the President of The CW, had this to say about the pick-ups, “As soon as we saw (Thursday) night’s episode of ‘The Vampire Diaries,’ we knew we wanted more of ‘The Originals’ – Julie Plec and Kevin Williamson have done a fantastic job with ‘The Vampire Diaries’, which is as fast-paced and well-written as ever, and Julie has created an equally compelling world for ‘The Originals’. We’re also very excited to bring back ‘Beauty And The Beast’ and ‘Hart of Dixie’ for next season – both series continue to be creatively strong and compelling, and their fans are incredibly passionate. I’m very happy to have all three series on the schedule for next season”.

The next new episode of ‘Hart of Dixie’, now in its second season, will air on Tuesday, April 30 at 8/7c while the next new episode of the debut season of ‘Beauty And the Beast’ will air this Thursday, May 2 at 9/8c. The announcement of when ‘The Originals’ will debut next fall on The CW will be made at the network’s upfront presentation on May 16.
