The CW's "Reaper" is the latest freshman series to receive an order for additional scripts.

The network on Thursday picked up three additional scripts from the dramedy starring Bret Harrison as a slacker working as the devil's bounty hunter.

Meanwhile, sources said the CW's freshman comedy "Aliens in America" is set to stay in continuous production after the completion of its 13-episode order in anticipation of a back order.

The CW's rookie drama "Gossip Girl" was the first new series this season to secure a full-season pickup. There is no word yet on CW's low-rated new drama "Life Is Wild."

"Reaper," from ABC Studios and the Mark Gordon Co., is one of the best-reviewed freshman series this fall, but the dramedy starring Bret Harrison as a slacker working as the devil's bounty hunter has had a slow start in the ratings in its post-"Beauty and the Geek" slot on Tuesday.
