All three shows hail from Warner Bros TV and will return in fall 2013.

“We said last year that one of our goals was to establish building blocks to grow on, and now with our new hit Arrow and fan favorite Supernatural on Wednesday night, and the continued success of The Vampire Diaries on Thursday, we’ve been able to do that,” said CW president Mark Pedowitz. “Not only do Arrow, Supernatural and The Vampire Diaries perform well on-air, they’re also extremely successful for us both digitally and socially.”

The renewal for Supernatural became possible after stars Jared Padalecki and Jensen Ackles inked rich new multi-season deals last year.

Arrow posted The CW’s best series premiere since 2009 and currently stands as the network’s most watched show (4.3 million). The Vampire Diaries remains The CW’s highest-rated series in target demographics, including adults 18-34 and women 18-34, and is big hit in social media.
