The 2015 fall line-up is looking extremely exciting in The CW, with many popular shows returning with fresh seasons. However the network has achieved a rare feat this year, with every scripted series getting picked to make a comeback next season.
Meanwhile, HBO, also owned by Time Warner, will be airing the final season of hospital comedy "Getting On". However, "Game of Thrones" and "Girls", the two strong legs of HBO will be back with more this fall season.
It is no surprise that the fan-favourite "The Vampire Diaries" will return for season 7 and its spin-off series "The Originals", about the first vampire family, will come back with season 3. "Reign", the historical drama following the early years of Queen Mary of Scots living in France has also been renewed for a season 3 by The CW, according to website zap2it.
"Supernatural", about the Winchester brothers who ironically hunt and kill the beings like those that appear in "The Vampire Diaries" and "The Originals", namely vampires and werewolves, and even angels and demons as of the later seasons, will be brought back for season 11.
"Game of Thrones", one of the most popular shows in television history, has never had a lack for audience and as avid fans wait for George RR Martin to release "The Winds of Winter", Season 5 should help HBO keep the ratings up. HBO is also bringing "Togetherness", the comedy series created by Duplass brothers and Steve Zissis, back for at least one more season.
"Jane the Virgin", which follows the surprising events in the life of the religious Latina woman Jane, who wishes to save her virginity till marriage, but is accidentally artificially inseminated with the sperm of her teenage crush, has also been renewed for a fresh new season.
With the kind of success "Girls" is enjoying, it is no wonder Lena Dunham, who plays Hannah, and her gang is on Season 4 of the journey in trying to figure out "their lives and relationships". "Girls" is also probably the reason why HBO even considered airing "Looking". Seen mostly as the male, or gay male, version of "Girls", "looking" is Ryan Murphy's vision of how four gay men figure out "their lives and relationships".
"Arrow" and its spin-off "The Flash" will get fresh seasons each, making it Season 4 and Season 2 respectively for the superhero shows. Meanwhile, there are talks for a combined spin-off for the two, possible revolving around the superhero "Atom". However, it is unlikely for the show to premiere in the 2015 line-up.
"Getting On" will follow the likes of well-loved shows "The Newsroom", "True Blood", "Boardwalk Empire" and "Hello Ladies", all of which bade farewell to the cable network in recent times.
"Getting On" will be getting a proper send-off, with six episodes to be aired in the final season, much like the first two seasons.
