One Tree Hill and Supernatural may continue beyond their current season order according to The CW president Dawn Ostroff. Supernatural was renewed for a sixth season by the broadcaster despite earlier statements by creator and producer Eric Kripke that the drama was devised to run for five years – a five year arc had been constructed. This prompted many fans to believe that Supernatural’s fifth season would be its last however, over the course of the season it became apparent that a sixth season was on the cards and this was later confirmed by Ostroff who ordered a new year. Actors Jensen Ackles and Jared Padalecki will return for the sixth season and Kripke will still be involved with the new season but now it seems as though The CW is looking beyond season six. On the recent press tour Dawn Ostroff said The CW was hopeful and confident Supernatural would be back for a 7th season.
“Everybody on the show feels there’s a lot of juice left in the characters. We hope it goes on for more than one season” Dawn Ostroff quoted on Entertainment Weekly
It isn’t’ just Supernatural that The CW see returning for yet another season – it’s veteran drama One Tree Hill was also singled out by Ostroff as having a life beyond its new season order. The drama was given a late renewal order by The CW which lead to the press to conclude, wrongly, that The CW would renew Life Unexpected over One Tree Hill – in the end the broadcaster renewed both. The drama will return for an eighth season later this year but it seems The CW can see it returning for a ninth as well. Not bad for a drama that, for its first few years, was eclipsed by The O.C and was the subject of cancellation rumours!
