Continuing to make themselves the dominant force in streaming etnertainment to users, Netflix, Warner Bros. Television Group and CBS Corporation have just signed a four-year deal that will bring all prior seasons of The CW’s current scripted series and future shows to Netflix.

The deal includes all drama series on the network’s 2011 schedule like Ringer, Hart of Dixie, The Secret Circle, The Vampire Diaries, Gossip Girl, 90210, Supernatrual, Nikita and One Tree Hill.

As part of the TCA Press Tour presentation for The CW, President Mark Pedowitz took some time to talk about returning faces for the Fall, increased episode orders for a number of their already-established shows, the interest in developing other DC Comics properties now that Smallville has ended, and the possibility of remakes and re-boots of previous projects. Here are the most interesting points:
- One of the big goals of The CW is for more original programming, so that their TV shows don’t take as long of a break between episodes around the holiday season.
- The new Fall season will kick off on Monday, September 12th with a special on Lady Gaga.
- The CW is thrilled to be the home of Sarah Michelle Gellar and Rachel Bilson’s return to television, with Ringer (premiering on September 13th) and Hart of Dixie (premiering on September 26th), respectively.
- There will be more original episodes this season for returning series Supernatural, Nikita, Gossip Girl and 90210, and the final season for One Tree Hill is currently set for 13 episodes in mid-season.
- This upcoming season is not intended to be the final season of Supernatural. They are hoping to keep the series going, but will evaluate it, one season at a time.
- Mark Pedowitz is a big believer in keeping casts together and hopes that the network will be able to do just that with the cast of Gossip Girl, even though they have busy film careers.
- After the success of Smallville, the network is looking at possible DC Comics superheroes to develop for series next year.
- They are very receptive to new projects that Tom Welling may be developing, either as the star or producer.

The season hasn’t even started yet, but The CW has preemptively decided to order more episodes of four of their returning series in spite of the fact that each of them already had a full season order. TV Line reports the network has ordered two more episodes for Gossip Girl and 90210 giving each series a 24-episode season while Supernatural and Nikita each got one more episode ordered for a 23-episode season. Apparently, this is an effort to keep the amount of reruns that show up during the mid-season to a minimum. If Vampire Diaries fans are wondering why more episodes weren’t ordered for the series, the post-production process makes additional episode orders a little more difficult (not to mention expensive). Otherwise, if you’re loving The CW and their ongoing series’, this news should come as a treat.
We’ve already heard that Danny Trejo was joining the fourth season of Sons of Anarchy this fall, but now a stranger name has entered the mix for the new season. TV Guide has learned that Baywatch lifeguard and cheeseburger coinesseur David Hasslehoff has landed a role on the FX drama. Even more weird is that he’ll be playing Dondo, a well-endowed former porn star who is now making major coin by producing sleazy girl-on-girl adult films. Apparently his career was given a bump thanks to Luanne (Dendrie Taylor) and so he “gets involved in a little dirty work in her memory.” Hasslehoff certainly has a sleazy nature about him in his old age, so this sounds like perfect casting.

With the end of the TV season winding down, there’s no time like the present to get fans excited for the next season. The CW is doing just that with their recent announcement to renew four of their scripted series for another season. The Vampire Diairies, the fan favorite Supernatural, the remade 90210 and Gossip Girl have all been given another season on the network. Apparently all of the series have been turning in great ratings and that’s always good. Oh, and if anyone cares, America’s Next Top Model has also been renewed for another season, but that’s just not our cup of tea.
