90210? The Vampire Diaries? Which teen dramas are on The CW’s chopping block?
Hey CW junkies! Most of you can breathe a sight of relief as The CW is reportedly planning to renew many of your favorite guilty pleasures, according to insider info. from Spoiler TV. Gossip Girl, 90210, Supernatural, America’s Next Top Model, The Vampire Diaries and even Smallville (yes, it’ll be going into its 10th season) are all reportedly going to be back next fall. It pains us to report, however, that a few shows are still “on the bubble” so to speak, and their future at the network looks iffy.
Veteran drama One Tree Hill and newcomer Melrose Place are both on thin ice. Melrose Place hasn’t been getting the ratings The CW had hoped for, and One Tree Hill may just be running out of steam after seven seasons. Spoiler TV reports that if One Tree Hill does come back for season eight, it’ll face budget cuts and more characters will go the way of Chad Michael Murray and Hilarie Burton (wherever they’ve disappeared to.)
Another new show The CW is still deciding on is Life Unexpected, which just recently premiered Jan. 18. It’s been doing well, but they’re being careful — they want to know if it can hold viewers after a few weeks. So if you’re a fan of the show, make all your friends watch it too!
