Big News: The CW Announces Early Pickups for Top Model, Everybody Hates Chris, Gossip Girl, One Tree Hill, Smallville, and Supernatural!
Without further ado, the six shows that The CW has confirmed will be back for the fall season:
First things first -- Supernatural is back! You had us worried there for awhile, CW, what with taking it off the schedule for long periods of time and not promoting it as much as we'd like. But you seem to have realized what a gem you have on your hands, and we're beyond psyched that we'll get a fourth season.
And more One Tree Hill! We're loving the way Season Five is playing out, and we cannot wait to see more of the gang's twentysomething adventures. This means more opportunities to see relationships form (and fall apart), more Ravens games, more Naley, more Leyton (whether or not you love them, we suspect they're around for the long haul), and more sassy Brooke. Hurray!
We're not especially shocked to see Top Model and Gossip Girl on the list, but we're still very happy! The former is The CW's biggest hit, and the latter is arguably the network's most buzzworthy show. We can't imagine a fall TV season without Tyra and her latest crop of model wannabes. And Gossip Girl is just starting to heat up -- imagine the potential of another season of conniving, backstabbing, and bitchery.
Then there's Everybody Hates Chris, which consistently brings the funny and completely deserves another year of anchoring The CW's comedy night. And Smallville has been keeping things fresh this season with a flurry of new characters and new loves found and lost. The big question: will Michael Rosenbaum return for Season Eight? If he doesn't, will you keep watching?
So that's the big news. We want to hear your reactions! Are you freaking out about this news, or were you confident all along that your favorite shows would return? And what about shows that haven't yet been confirmed, like The Game, Reaper, and Aliens in America -- are you worried, or do you think they'll be back?
