Fans of The CW’s soapy dramas can get ready to celebrate. The teen-oriented network has given early renewals to five of its series, including freshman dramas Reign and The Originals!
Old favorites Arrow, Supernatural and The Vampire Diaries will also be returning for the 2014-15 season.
Mark Pedowitz, president of The CW, said:
This season we’ve had great success with our new hit series The Originals paired with Supernatural, giving us our best Tuesday nights in years. […] The Vampire Diaries is No. 2 in its time period in the young adult demos, and with Arrow continuing to gain among young men, and Reign growing its time period, we now have strong nights on Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday. I’m very pleased to announce early pickups for all five series, and let our fans know they’ll have more great drama to look forward to next season.

Each are livid for different reasons. Francis feels betrayed by his love and brother, and Henry’s upset Mary would threaten their alliance, thus weakening his claim on England. Meanwhile, Catherine vows to destroy Mary at all costs since her renewed presence could still spell Francis’s death.
