The CW announced today that it is renewing Supernatural for a seventh season. The news comes along with pickups of four other CW series for the 2011-2012 season: The Vampire Diaries, Gossip Girl, 90210, and America's Next Top Model.
Earlier this year network president Dawn Ostroff expressed her optimism for Supernatural's renewal, so this news doesn't really come as a surprise. Notably absent from the announcement are cheerleading drama Hellcats and spy series Nikita, which would seem to leave both freshman shows' futures up in the air for now.
