This just in from the CW via press release: The Vampire Diaries Season 4 is officially a go. Here’s the release in full:

May 3, 2012 (Burbank, California) ─ The CW Network has given early pickups to the network’s top-rated show, THE VAMPIRE DIARIES, fan favorite SUPERNATURAL, and the world’s most-famous zip code, 90210, with all three series to return for the 2012-2013 season.

Based on the series of books by L. J. Smith, THE VAMPIRE DIARIES is from Bonanza Productions Inc., Outerbanks Entertainment and Alloy Entertainment in association with Warner Bros. Television and CBS Television Studios with executive producers Kevin Williamson (“Scream,” “Dawson’s Creek”), Julie Plec (“Kyle XY,” “Wasteland”), Leslie Morgenstein (“Gossip Girl,” “Private”) and Bob Levy (“Gossip Girl,” “Privileged”).

SUPERNATURAL is from Warner Bros. Television in association with Wonderland Sound and Vision, with executive producers McG (“Charlie’s Angels,” “The O.C.”), Robert Singer (“Midnight Caller”), Jeremy Carver (“Being Human”) and Phil Sgriccia.

    I’m not surprised. I would be surprised if it wasn’t renewed. Now can we get this show back on track instead of the downward spiral it was heading into. No more convoluted plots, weak storylines, and weak characters. No more. Here’s hoping season 4 is a lot better.


    Yeah..but really, was there ever any doubt;) Congrats to the cast and crew for an excellent season this season with more to come in the Fall…really, this is the best news I’ve had all day;)

  • Cherrie

    Yay!! We knew it would happen though. I mean The Vampire Diaries is the highest rated show on the CW. 

  • KatAttack

    YAAAY! :) But really, was there any doubt?

  • DianaPauline

    We all thought the show would be renewed but it’s nice to see it confirmed in a CW press release.  And although this season is not yet over, I’d like to give a shout out to everyone associated with TVD.  The show wouldn’t be what it is without the hard, even exhausting, work of everyone from the wonderful actors to the guy (or gal) who puts the tape on the floor so the actors know where to stand.  And let’s not forget the producers, writers, editors, music supervisor, cinematographer - well, just everyone who gives us one hour of bliss 22 weeks of the year.

    A big “thank you” to you all – well done!

  • charmedone1545

     For Sure!!!! :) And an even Bigger Thank You to whoever picks those awesome songs!!!!!
