Jessica Jumps In: A Newbie's Sample Of The Vampire Diaries
3. Likelihood Of Staying On Air
The Vampire Diaries is in its fourth season on the CW, and normally that would not be a great thing for a CW show. A fourth season is enough episodes to put a show into syndication, and if it is only doing middlingly well, the thought is that it may be time to give a newer series a shot.
Luckily, The Vampire Diaries is a series that does rather well for the network, pulling in anywhere between 2.5 and 3.5 million viewers each week. The network has too many other shows that barely do over a million viewers each week to be worrying about pulling Diaries from the schedule, assumedly, unless the fates don’t align properly. I would guess the show will get a fifth season next year, and even if network heads decide they are over the whole supernatural television bent, the CW is also usually very good about letting its more popular series get a legitimate ending and would probably give this one a half season, ala Gossip Girl.
