May 10th: The Originals Renewed for Season 5

Jen | Categories: News, Season 5, The Originals, TV Series | Comments Off on The Originals Renewed for Season 5

The CW has opted to extend the Mikaelsons’ stay in New Orleans, renewing The Originals for a fifth season.

As previously reported, Michael Narducci will not return as showrunner for Season 5. Instead, series creator — and former Vampire Diaries showrunner — Julie Plec will call the shots. Leslie Morgenstern (TVD) will also executive-produce.
The Originals follows, as its title suggests, the world’s first family of vampires — plus a few hybrids and witches thrown in for good measure. Now midway through its fourth season, the show is pitting its heroes against their most powerful foe yet, a mysterious entity known as The Hollow.

Thus far this season The Originals is averaging 980,000 total viewers and a 0.3 rating, up in audience versus Season 3 but down a tick in the demo (where it matches the recently axed Frequency and No Tomorrow and bests Reign and Crazy Ex-Girlfriend).

Jen | Categories: Michael Narducci, News, The Originals, TV Series | Comments Off on The Originals Showrunner Exits; TVD’s Julie Plec to Take Over If Renewed

The Originals showrunner Michael Narducci is exiting the CW series, as he leaves Warner Bros. Television for a new two-year deal at ABC Studios.

Production on The Originals Season 4 (premiering Friday, March 17) has already wrapped. If the series is renewed for Season 5, Julie Plec will return to seize the reins, since The Vampire Diaries will have ended.
Narducci “got an opportunity he couldn’t pass up,” Plec told THR, which broke the news. “He has been a brilliant partner and friend and I’m going to miss him desperately.”

Narducci has been a part of the Vampire Diaries-verse since late Season 2 of the original series, when he served as executive story editor. He was upped to co-producer for Season 3 and has been a full executive producer at The Originals since Season 2.

Aug 11th: CW Boss on The Originals’s Future (and other CW shows)

Jen | Categories: Interviews, News, Season 4, Season 5, The Originals | Comments Off on CW Boss on The Originals’s Future (and other CW shows)

When Mark Pedowitz joined the CW five years ago, he made it be known that veteran Supernatural was one of his favorite shows. He got behind the series, upgraded its time slot and Supernatural got a second wind. Heading into Season 11, the series starring Jensen Ackles and Jared Padalecki may not be winding down soon.

“Jensen and Jared seem very happy, and I’m thrilled with the creative direction of the show,” Pedowitz said. “Creatively the show is terrific, and if the ratings hold, it would outlast me in this chair.”

As for the long-percolating Supernatural spinoff, “it is still a priority, it just hasn’t happened,” Pedowitz said.

Speaking of spinoffs, The Originals has been closely associated with the show that spawned it, How does the end of The Vampire Diaries bode for its offshoot? “I hope it lives very well on its own; I’m hopeful that we will see a fifth year,” Pedowitz said.

During the executive session, which began with Pedowitz doing a jig on stage to Settle For Me from Crazy Ex-Girlfriend, he reenacted the negotiations for Supergirl, which moved from CBS to the CW in May. They went something like this: “Would you like Supergirl? Where do I sign?,” Pedowitz said.

As he noted at the upfronts, ratings expectations for the import are pretty high. “It won’t do as well as it did on CBS but I anticipate it will be out Ni.1 or N.2 show behind The Flash,” he said.

In an early encouraging sign, the CW is airing Supergirl repeats this summer which have gotten traction on the new network.
