CW wants more 'One Tree Hill,' 'Vampire Diaries,' 'Melrose Place'
Fans of The CW's "One Tree Hill" can rest easy. The show has received a full order for the season. Things are also looking promising for "Vampire Diaires" and cautiously optimistic for "Melrose Place."
The network raised "One Tree Hill's" order from 13 episodes to a full 22 on Wednesday. At the same time, they picked up nine additional scripts for freshman drama "Vampire Diaries" and asked for six more "Melrose Place Scripts."
Neither the "One Tree Hill" nor the "Vampire Diaries" news is particularly surprising considering their solid early numbers. "Melrose Place" has not been an out-of-the-gate success, but the network has a lot invested in the "90210" companion piece and are hoping the addition of original cast member Heather Locklear to the mix come November will help turn things around.
CW has not ordered more episodes of their freshman drama, "The Beautiful Life: TBL." Yet. According to Variety, executives are waiting to see how its second episode fairs on Wednesday night opposite ABC's new comedies "Modern Family" and "Cougar Town," and new seasons of NBC's "Law & Order: Special Victims Unit" and CBS' "Criminal Minds."
