The CW Picks Up All Its New Shows

The Originals  -- Pictured (L-R): Daniel Gillies as Elijah, Joseph Morgan as Klaus, and Phoebe Tonkin as Hayley.

The CW has picked up its three freshmen series, the network announced this afternoon. The Originals, The Tomorrow People, and Reign have all earned a full first season. The Originals is a New Orleans–set spinoff of The Vampire Diaries and seemed like a sure thing out of the gate, while The Tomorrow People, about a race of super-humans being chased by the government, and Reign, a sexy teen history of Mary Queen of Scots, were perhaps more of a gamble. As it turns out, they all pull pretty similar numbers. TV is not perfectly predictable!
