The CW announced Monday it has given early pickups for next season to the Vancouver filmed  superhero drama “Arrow” and “Supernatural.”

That takes “Arrow” into a second season and “Supernatural” will enter their fifth and ninth seasons, respectively.

“We said last year that one of our goals was to establish building blocks to grow on, and now with our new hit ‘Arrow’ and fan favorite ‘Supernatural’ on Wednesday night, and the continued success of ‘The Vampire Diaries’ on Thursday, we’ve been able to do that,” said network President Mark Pedowitz in a statement. “Not only do ‘Arrow,’ ‘Supernatural’ and ‘The Vampire Diaries’ perform well on-air, they’re also extremely successful for us both digitally and socially. I’m thrilled to have all three shows returning to our schedule next season.”

“Arrow” is currently the network’s most-watched show, averaging 4.3 million viewers. It’s been paired with “Supernatural,” which has also seen an increase in ratings.

This is welcome news to the Vancouver film industry.
