'Vampire Diaries,' 'Supernatural' and '90210' Renewed by the CW

The CW has given early pickups to its series "The Vampire Diaries," "Supernatural" and "90210," the network said Thursday.


The renewals aren't particularly surprising; "The Vampire Diaries" is the network's top-rated show, while "Supernatural" has a loyal fan base and "90210" has been a reliable hit for the network.

"The Vampire Diaries," based on the series of books by L.J. Smith, is returning for a fourth season, while "90210" -- a revamp of the classic'90s series "Beverly Hills, 90210" -- is coming back for a fifth season. "Supernatural," meanwhile, will begin its eighth season for the network in the 2012-2013 season.
