The CW announced early pickups today for three of its top shows.

The Vampire Diaries will be returning for a fourth season. The news was announced unofficially by E.P. Julie Plec last week, who tweeted ‘Just hung up the phone with the studio and the network having pitched Season 4. We’re all fired. Just kidding. We rocked it.’

Fan favorites Supernatural and 90210 will return for an eighth and fifth season respectively. There is still no official word on Nikita or The Secret Circle.

More as we have it.
