The CW Renews ‘Vampire Diaries,’ ‘Supernatural,’ ‘90210,’ ‘Gossip Girl’

The CW picks up ‘Vampire Diaries,’ ‘Supernatural,’ ‘90210,’ ‘Gossip Girl’

spn-tvd-stefan-sam-lg.jpgThe word “duh” comes to mind.

The CW has officially renewed “The Vampire Diaries,” “Supernatural,” “90210,” “Gossip Girl,” and “America’s Next Top Model” for the 2011-2012 season, surprising… well, nobody.

Though ratings are down from its first season, “The Vampire Diaries” remains the network’s top-rated show. Executive producer Julie Plec teases that the show’s Season 2 finale, airing May 12, will set up the tonality of Season 3. In future seasons, they plan to explore the issue of the vampires’ immortality, and the loneliness therein.

“Supernatural” has performed extremely well in its new Friday timeslot, even against genre competition like FOX’s “Fringe.” Executive producer Bob Singer told Zap2it that this year’s Season 6 finale ends with a cliffhanger, so we’re glad to see that we’ll get some resolution in Season 7.

Though “Gossip Girl” and “90210” haven’t been ratings juggernauts from the get-go, they contribute considerably to the image of the network and have been a successful Monday night pairing. They remain watercooler shows for teenagers across the country.

“America’s Next Top Model” is The CW’s only consistently performing reality show. The CW plans to air an “All-star” version next fall.

Still up in the air? Veteran series “One Tree Hill” and newbies “Hellcats” and “Nikita.” “Life Unexpected” is not… well, expected to return.

The Vampire Diaries Season Finale Recap: 1.22 Founder’s Day

‘Vampire Diaries’: Death, love and betrayal surface on Founder’s Day



To soften the blow of not having new episodes of “Vampire Diaries” on our television sets until the fall, here are 10 highlights and/or observations from the jam-packed season finale (in no particular order).

1. Elena finds out her father’s identity. When Stefan implies that John (guest star David Anders) is Elena’s father before the parade begins, Elena’s reaction is a pretty realistic. How would you act when the guy you tolerated for many years turned out to be your biological father?

2. Elena and Jeremy’s relationship hits a major snag. It’s heartbreaking to see brother and sister at an impasse, but Elena had to know that Jeremy would somehow find out the truth about Vicki and Damon’s “brainwashing.” Damon defends Elena, but it doesn’t really do any good. It’s the idea that Jeremy had no choice in the matter, that he it was decided how he should be feeling in the aftermath. That’s not exactly healthy.

3. Damon takes the high road. At the Founders Day parade, Damon takes the high road and thanks Bonnie for saving him from the device, which could have killed him. It was a simple gesture on his part, but it was beautifully played and makes the upcoming revelation that much more heartwrenching. It was also one of the rare moments during the series where Damon didn’t have any type of agenda. When we see John briefing the mayor on his plan to use the complete device in order to kill off all the tomb vampires (meanwhile we see the vamps concocting their own plan of attack to kill all the founding families), Bonnie’s betrayal has devastating consequences.

4. Damon’s feelings for Elena turns up. Stefan’s jealousy act is understandable, but does Elena really not see what’s going on here? She keeps saying that she cares for them both, but loves only Stefan, yet is constantly drawn to Damon. But does she feel the same way?

5. After the fireworks begin … It’s no wonder the vamps chose to attack the founding families when the night sky was being lit up like a Christmas tree, but when John turns on the device, it knocks out all the vampires within its radius. With the vampires (including Damon, Stefan and Anna) feeling the wrath of the device, Tyler is affected by the noise as well, but in a different capacity. His aggressive reaction gets the best of him and Tyler crashes the car (with Matt and Caroline in it). While this is happening, John and his crew round up the vampires and throw them in the basement. Anna grabs hold of John before he douses the room with gasoline, but instead of sparing her life, John stakes her while Damon is forced to watch. Then the room goes up in flames.

6. Stefan, Alaric and Elena figure out Bonnie’s betrayal. But she redeems herself when she saves Damon from the flames. Later, she unofficially crowns herself as the keeper of the town, when she warns Stefan (and Damon) that they’ll pay if any of them hurts an innocent being.

7. Tyler’s identity comes to fruition, sort of. Damon sees Mayor Lockwood locked up in the room with the rest of the vampires, but he’s not a vamp so … what’s going on?

8. Blood is thicker than water. It takes Stefan a while to realize that he really can’t live without Damon, but when his older brother is caught in a life or death situation, Stefan drops everything to save him.

9. Damon and Jeremy suffer together. It’s a great scene between the two in Jeremy’s bedroom, after Damon sees Anna die right before his very eyes. He took Jeremy’s chance to grieve once before and now Damon’s giving him a choice. He’s grown the most since the start of the season; when Jeremy asks about whether vampires can truly switch their humanity off and on like a switch, Damon tells him the truth. Life, for him, was easier when he didn’t feel bad about the things he did, but unfortunately, he’s in too deep in Mystic Falls. After Damon leaves, Jeremy takes it upon himself (and lots of pills) to resolve his depression.

10. Damon and Elena’s kiss. It was a long time coming. It was tense and bittersweet, but wait, is it really Elena? (If it ain’t, poor Damon. It’s a neverending cycle! And it’s almost not fair for Team Damon.)

Bonus: Katherine’s back. After Jenna abruptly ends Damon and Elena’s makeout session, Elena makes her way into the kitchen and sees John. She grabs one of the knives and sees the ring on his finger. Suddenly, she slams the knife down on John’s fingers, rendering him useless and her demeanor begins to change. Holy crap, it’s NOT Elena! We see further proof of this when the real Elena unlocks the front door and telling Stefan that someone took her stuff (cough) from the parade. Elena hears some noise coming from the kitchen and she makes her way toward it (aka the danger zone).

What the heck just happened?! The kiss between Damon and Elena was really between Damon and Katherine? If that’s so, that’s going to screw Damon up for another century or so. When did Katherine slip in as Elena? Katherine and Elena presumably come face to face? So many questions to ponder and four months to do it. It’s going to be a long summer …

RIP Anna and Mayor Lockwood.

Isobel and John (who were revealed to be Elena’s real birth parents last week) attempt to carry out their devious plan to kill Stefan and Damon in the first-season finale. Everything comes crashing down as Mystic Falls celebrates its annual Founder’s Day event, with Caroline leading the festivities as the reigning queen. And, of course, there is tension between Elena and Bonnie since Bonnie didn’t remove the spell from the deadly device that can harm vampires like she promised. This is one festival that is sure to end with lots of fireworks. — Tim Holland,

Question: Some Damon and Elena scoop, please? After last week’s episode of The Vampire Diaries, I am so on board with this couple. Stefan who?
Michael Ausiello:
Exec producer Kevin Williamson coughed up the following tease about this Thursday’s season finale that may or may not pertain to Damon and Elena: “One vampire will be forced to reconcile his humanity when it becomes impossible to deny his feelings for one very human girl.” KW goes on to tease that “Founder’s Day will serve as the backdrop for the final showdown between the tomb vampires and the town council — placing all of our characters in deadly jeopardy.” In related news, I can confirm that two of the 18 confirmed fatality slots on my May Sweeps Scorecard are reserved for VD characters.

Vampire Diaries – Episode 1.22 – Founder’s Day – Press Release



“THE VAMPIRE DIARIES” – (8:00-9:00 p.m. ET)


FOUNDER’S DAY TURNS DEADLY – Founder’s Day has finally arrived, and everyone is busy with last-minute preparations for floats and fireworks. Stefan (Paul Wesley) is uncomfortable with Damon’s (Ian Somerhalder) new attitude toward Elena (Nina Dobrev), but Elena is more concerned about repairing her relationship with Jeremy (Steven R. McQueen). Jeremy is worried about Anna (guest star Malese Jow), but not sure he’s on board with her latest plan for the future. While Caroline (Candice Accola) is enjoying her day as Queen of the celebration, she also tries to help Matt (Zach Roerig) and Tyler (Michael Trevino) get their friendship back on track. Finally, although Damon and Alaric (Matt Davis) do their best to stop him, Johnathan Gilbert (guest star David Anders) sets a plan in motion that brings Founder’s Day to an end amid chaos, destruction and death. Sara Canning and Katerina Graham also star. Marcos Siega directed the episode written by Bryan Oh & Andrew Chambliss.

They wouldn’t kill Alaric in the season finale of The Vampire Diaries, would they? Matt Davis is my favorite on that show!
MICKEY: “I had a lovely conversation with Kevin Williamson a week or so ago about the future of Alaric, and I must say, it looks bright,” the artist formerly known as Warner Huntington III told us. So it seems he’ll survive the season finale’s apocalyptic Founder’s Day celebration. In fact, we’re hearing that Davis might be promoted to a series regular in the fall. Source: TV Guide

How about a tiny little something on how the season finale actually and truly ends? Can you handle it? OK, proceed to read: A source tells me the very last face you will see before the screen fades to black belongs to… Elena. Will she be screaming in agony as she is buried alive? Laughing at a good joke? Overcome with ecstasy as she couples with Damon? This, we do not know.

Vampire Diaries – latest from Eonline Alaric to survive season 1

Tick tock the clock is counting down to the season finale where at least one series regular will die for good. Eonline has added Alaric to the safe list which also includes Elena ,Stefan, Tyler and Damon. This leaves Jeremy, Jenna, Matt, Caroline and Bonnie in danger. Please note that other characters like Pearl or Anna could also die as a secondary death.

Here’s what Eonline had to say:

I think Matt Davis is awesome on The Vampire Diaries. They aren’t going to kill him off, are they?
Thanks to Alaric’s fancy lifesaving ring (take that, Damon!), and the producers feeling the same as you, I’m told that Matt is sticking around. No plans to off him.

How about some news on Damon on TVD? I’m kind of wanting him to go back to being evil. Will his good side stick around long?I’m told he’ll always be in a gray area, between good and evil. And hello, he has done plenty of evil things as of late, including slaughtering (he thought) Alaric and snapping his kindly neighbor woman’s neck! If you don’t think that’s evil, I hope you don’t live on my street.

I love that Jeremy’s not in the dark on The Vampire Diaries anymore. What’s ahead for him?
Jeremy and vampire Anna will find their way back to each other, even though she bailed when she learned about the whole Vicki situation. Sadly for J, his relationship with this little lady doesn’t end up much better than the latter.

Vampire Diaries- Episode 1.21 – Isobel – Press Release

ISOBEL RETURNS TO MYSTIC FALLS – Isobel (guest star Mia Kirshner) returns to town and stuns Alaric (Matt Davis) with her attitude and her demands that he arrange a meeting with Elena (Nina Dobrev.) When mother and daughter finally meet, Isobel refuses to answer most of Elena’s questions, but reveals that she will stop at nothing to find the mysterious invention Johnathan Gilbert has been searching for. Isobel’s dangerous actions lead Stefan (Paul Wesley), Damon (Ian Somerhalder) and Bonnie (Katerina Graham) to step in and help Elena deal with the situation.Candice Accola, Steven R. McQueen, Sara Canning, Zach Roerig and Michael Trevino also star. J Miller Tobin directed the episode written by Caroline Dries & Brian Young.

Could you please give us some scoop on Damon and Elena? Are they really going to become a real thing? Will they really get closer?

You Stefan-Elena fans will not be pleased, and you Damon-Elena fans will have much to squee about in coming episodes, from what I hear!

The Vampire Diaries Episode Recap: “Pilot”

The Vampire Diaries Episode Recap: “Pilot”

Vampire Diaries

Stefan (Paul Wesley) and Damon (Ian Somerhalder) Salvatore are 170-year-old vampire brothers who return to Mystic Falls, their hometown. Stefan goes undercover as a high school student to get closer to Elena (Nina Dobrev), who bears a striking resemblance to Katherine, a former love. But since Damon has promised Stefan an “eternity of misery” for some reason, I’m guessing that this vampire-meets-girl story is not going to go so smoothly.

The CW Fall Schedule

The CW’s Official Fall 2009 Schedule Listed

Source: Ace Showbiz TV News
The CW is leaning more into the women demographic with the inclusion of fashion-oriented ‘Beautiful Life’ and the 2.0 version of ‘Melrose Place’.

The CW's Official Fall 2009 Schedule Listed
See larger image The CW’s presentation of the Fall 2009 line-up makes it official that “” spin-off will not be picked up anytime soon and “” is formally dismissed. Instead, the network opts to add up to the list, three brand new series ““, “” and ““.

The spin-off dubbed as “Lily”, was already previewed in an episode of the original series but there were rumors floating that it would not be picked up at all. This is apparently not true. CW President Dawn Ostroff said that this is “the toughest year” they ever had because the selection of pilots is “really, really good”. She continued, “We do have room for another midseason show. We have some reality, and we’ll probably have another scripted drama. We’re just going to take a beat and see where we are. In all honesty, I think the Gossip Girl spinoff is the show that we would love to be able to find a place for as the season goes on.”

Meanwhile, “Vampire”, “Melrose” and “Beautiful” are paired with the network’s established series which have the same tone. “Melrose” is taking the Tuesdays slot with “” which is also a refurbished version of ’90s series. “Beautiful”, which is about fashion models, is put on Wednesday with the lead-in from “” while “Vampire” is going to precede “” on Thursdays.

With the excluding of “” and ““, the fall schedule subsequently is packed with dramas and no comedy. But Ostroff defended that it is “the most cohesive lineup” they’ve ever had. The slogan they would like to opt this time around would be, “TV to Talk About”.






CW upfront notes: ‘Smallville,’ ‘Supernatural,’ ‘90210’-‘Melrose’ crossovers

Source: Zap2It’s Korbi TV

The news coming out of The CW’s upfront wasn’t just about the new shows. Click through for notes on “Smallville,” “Supernatural” and more.

“Smallville” is moving to Friday nights in the fall, but that shouldn’t be taken as a sign that the network’s longest-running current series is on its way out.

“No,” CW Entertainment president Dawn Ostroff says. “First of all, it’s way too early” to talk about at the moment, as the show’s producers haven’t yet mapped out the storyline for season nine. “But no, it’s not the last season,” she adds. “Hopefully not.” (For what it’s worth, star Tom Welling has reportedly signed on for two more seasons.)

“Smallville’s” former Thursday-night companion, “Supernatural,” is entering its fifth season in the fall — and according to creator Eric Kripke’s original blueprint for the show, five seasons would tell the whole story of the Winchester boys. As with “Smallville,” Ostroff says it’s too early to make a definitive statement on whether the show could go on longer.

“We’ll see how the season goes,” she says. “But they did a really good job creatively this year, and I think it really paid off in the ratings.” “Supernatural” really was in a groove this season, but last week’s finale basically set up the coming of the apocalypse. After Sam and Dean battle Lucifer, are there really any other demons to slay, so to speak?

Another veteran show, “One Tree Hill,” is dealing with the departures of Chad Michael Murray and Hilarie Burton from the cast. Ostroff is sorry to see them go, but she also thinks their leaving represents an opportunity to freshen up the series.

“We tried to get them to stay, and we would have been thrilled if they wanted to,” Ostroff says. “I think the show moving into its seventh year was very open to sort of reinventing itself. One thing I have to give [creator] Mark Schwahn a lot of credit for is he’s kept the show fresh all these years. … I think Mark is excited about maybe bringing on a few new characters, which is what we’re going to do now that we’re finishing the pilot process.

“If you look at shows like ‘ER’ and [others] that go on for many, many years, a lot of these casts go through different people, and it really helps to keep shows fresh. So we’re said to see [Murray and Burton] go, and grateful for everything they did for the show, but excited about moving on and seeing who else is going to join the cast.”

The original “Melrose Place” was spun off from “Beverly Hills, 90210,” and since the new “90210” takes place in the same world, we were wondering if there’s a possibility for characters from that show to pop up on the new “Melrose,” or vice versa. Answer: Very possibly.

“We actually have talked about character crossovers,” Ostroff says. “It’s not in the pilot, but I think there will be a lot of opportunities for us to do it.”

That could pose a paradoxical problem, though, if Rob Estes ever comes near the apartment complex. Estes played Kyle McBride for much of the original “Melrose Place’s” run, and he now plays West Bev High Principal Harry Wilson on “90210.” So if Harry ever showed up at Melrose Place in search of, say, his daughter Annie (Shenae Grimes), the entire fictional universe could collapse on itself.

The CW’s fall 2009 schedule, night by night

The CW didn’t tinker much for the fall, adding just three new series (“The Beautiful Life,” “The Vampire Diaries” and the new “Melrose Place”). For its final season, the Superman story “Smallville” moves to Fridays, presumably because its audience will tune in no matter the night. Oh, and don’t look for original programming on weekends; The CW got out of that game.

Dawn Ostroff says ‘Gossip Girl’ spin off could still get a spot on The CW schedule

Source: Zap2It’s Korbi TV

Brittanysnow The “Gossip Girl” spin off is still breathing? CW president Dawn Ostroff informed reporters at Upfronts this morning that the pilot revolving around Serena’s mom circa 1980s is still in contention for midseason: “In all honesty the “Gossip Girl” spin off [is something] we’d like to find a place for as the season goes on. But we have to wait a minute and see where we are.”  Ostroff said the network was in a very fortunate position, having produced just six pilots, all of which were strong candidates for pick up. “It was the toughest deal we’ve ever had, figuring out what to cut, because they all were really, really good,” she shared.  Ostroff went on to explain that The CW will reevaluate later in the year, but will likely pick up a reality series for January launch, as well as another scripted show. The possibilities of course include, among others, the “Gossip Girl” spin off and “The Body Politic,” a D.C. based drama starring Brian Austin Green, Jason Dohring and Minka Kelly. “Parental Discretion Advised” — formerly titled “Light Years,” about a foster kid that finds her biological parents who haven’t spoken since the one-night-stand which produced her — has already made the midseason schedule. So what are the chances the “Gossip Girl” spin off is a go? Word is, “The Body Politic” pilot turned out really well, but I don’t know that it fits with The CW’s vision of itself as well as the “GG” brand does. Plus, Ostroff seems pretty happy with the “GG” spin off, saying producers Josh Schwartz and Stephanie Savage did an incredible job with it and that it doesn’t need a lot of development, it’s absence from the fall schedule was really just a matter of not yet having enough room for it.

Fall TV: Smallville Leaps to Fridays in a Single Bound

Source: TV Guide Online

The CW isn’t officially showing its hand for the 2009-10 until its Thursday morning upfronts event — and I’ll be there on the red carpet chatting up the young ‘n’ fab talent! — but one piece of not-entirely-super news looks for certain: Smallville is being shuttled to Fridays at 8, for its ninth (and perhaps final) season, sources tell   The Smallville move serves two purposes. For one, it clears the way for the new Vampire Diaries blood-sudser to lead into Supernatural on Thursdays.   Also, it gives the CW a Friday show with an audience of 3 million-plus, where in seasons past it was lucky to drum up 2 mil (with Everybody Hates Chris or The Game, neither of which is likely to make the cut for the fall).  Airing after Smallville on Fridays will be an encore showing of that week’s America’s Next Top Model.

CW picks up ‘Beautiful Life,’ ‘Melrose Place,’ ‘Vampire Diaries’ …dumps ‘Privileged’

Source: Zap2It’s Korbi TV

Well, it’s a sad day for “Privileged” fans. Sources say the network surprised many by making the last-second decision to let the Rina Mimoun drama go quietly into the night earlier this week. So I guess we’ll never know what happened with Will and Megan after she woke up in bed post-“we were on a break” sex… Feel free to express your condolences/catty complaints in the comments section. And if you have questions for Ms. Mimoun, please let me know. On a brighter note, I’m hearing really good things about the Ashton Kutcher-produced “Beautiful Life,” which insiders say is a sure thing for fall. Word is, the drama about young models in the city will film in New York, instead of Canada where the pilot was shot, because the network has high hopes for it. And, no surprise, “Melrose” and “Vampire Diaries” will get an official pick up on Thursday too, as has long been rumored.

The CW will not be renewing Privileged for a second season. There was talk of a possible midseason berth for the much-loved dramedy, but, ultimately, the show was a casualty of the network’s strong development. “It’s truly heartbreaking,” series creator Rina Mimoun said via e-mail. “I’m so grateful to everyone out there who supported our little show and fell in love with Megan Smith. She was the most delightful character I’ve ever had the pleasure to write and watching JoAnna Garcia bring her to life every day was a gift I will never forget. I’m incredibly proud of the work we did and forever indebted to all the fans, critics and to Warner Bros. for being so wonderful and supportive. I will miss this more than you know.” Class act, that one.
