LOS ANGELES ( – The CW has given early pickups to its series “The Vampire Diaries,” “Supernatural” and “90210,” the network said Thursday.

The renewals aren’t particularly surprising; “The Vampire Diaries” is the network’s top-rated show, while “Supernatural” has a loyal fan base and “90210″ has been a reliable hit for the network.

“The Vampire Diaries,” based on the series of books by L.J. Smith, is returning for a fourth season, while “90210″ – a revamp of the classic 1990s series “Beverly Hills, 90210″ – is coming back for a fifth season. “Supernatural,” meanwhile, will begin its eighth season for the network in the 2012-2013 season.
