The Vampire Diaries, Supernatural and more have been renewed for new seasons in 2015. The CW network confirmed that all its fall shows will be renewed for another season. It is good news for many fans who wondered if a number of their favorite shows would come to an end.
Many of The Vampire Diaries fans started to worry that season six would be the last. Rumors that two of the main cast members are struggling to work together led to the idea that the show could not continue. Ian Somerhalder and Nina Dobrev, who play Damon Salvatore and Elena Gilbert respectively, were both onscreen and off-screen lovers. However, their off-screen breakup and Somerhalder bringing his new girlfriend onset has caused friction.
There is the possibility that the show will continue with one main character down. So far, only two of the three—Somerhalder, Dobrev and Paul Wesley—have signed on for a seventh season. The news may not have been much of a worry until the show officially got a seventh season.
The Vampire Diaries has not been the only show to get an early renewal. All fall shows have, which includes Supernatural. This show was slated to be on its final season after reaching season 10. However, the actors who play the main characters, Jensen Ackles and Jared Padalecki, have said that they would be up for continuing the show. They enjoy playing their characters and love the show.
Supernatural, The Vampire Diaries and many more shows have been renewed for new 2015 seasons. Some of these include shows that are only on their first or second seasons. Arrow and The Flash have both been renewed.
The news was announced this evening through the CW’s Twitter account. Twitter accounts for the various shows then shared the news with all their fans.
According to the network, the decision to renew the shows now is a good thing for all producers. It means they can start thinking about the end to their latest seasons to create a path for the new seasons. Shows in the past have ended with a cliffhanger just in the hope that they would get to continue. Witches of East End did that for season two, only to find out that Lifetime was not renewing it for a third. It has left many fans disappointed due to the cliffhangers.
The producers and writers can also start thinking about storylines for the next seasons now, rather than plan looking back over the finales. It gives them time to flesh out ideas and write entertaining and exciting episodes.
It is not surprising that a number of the fall shows were renewed. While The Vampire Diaries and Supernatural primarily drew in female audiences, the likes of Arrow and The Flash have boosted the male audience to 40 percent of the total figure. The ratings have also grown over the last year. The ratings grew by double digits on Mondays, Tuesdays and Fridays. Only time will tell how the shows will come to an end for the recent seasons, as the likes of The Vampire Diaries, Supernatural and more get renewed for 2015.
