The network is sticking with its fall freshmen dramas.
The CW is giving a big boost of confidence to its three freshmen fall dramas.
The network has ordered three additional scripts for The Vampire Diaries spinoff The Originals, The Tomorrow People, and period drama Reign, The Hollywood Reporter has learned.
For The Originals, the news comes just days after the hour-long drama debuted in its Tuesday time slot, drawing 1.9 million viewers and a 0.9 in the advertiser-coveted adults 18 to 49 demographic in the 8 p.m. hour. Its Oct. 3 premiere following Vampire Diaries rose to 3.1 million when live-plus-seven is factored in.
The premiere of Tomorrow People on Oct. 9 matched Arrow among the 18 to 49 demo, notching a 0.9 rating, and retained most of Arrow's audience (2.3 million vs. 2.7 million).
Reign, which follows a young Mary, Queen of Scots (Adelaide Kane) in the 16th century, officially premieres in the post-Vampire Diaries slot Oct. 17, signaling the network's support behind the show.
