The Vampire Diaries just got a booming vote of confidence from the CW courtesy of an early pickup, alongside staples Gossip Girl, Supernatural, America's Next Top Model and 90210. OK, maybe the last one isn't so much a staple. Glaringly missing from the list, however, is the much-hyped and heavily promoted Life Unexpected.
We just met Lux (Britt Robertson), but is it already time to say goodbye to our favorite foster care product?
Sources tell E! Online that the netlet is currently choosing between Life Unexpected and fellow Monday night resident and CW vet One Tree Hill, and only one will survive. As a newer show, the CW is reportedly giving Life Unexpected more time, which so far had been successful in holding on to Tree Hill's robust 2.5 mil average viewers.
One Tree Hill fans have already started a petition to renew the series, and Shantel VanSanten tells E! Online that a "lot more" is in store for fans if the show doesn't get canceled.
"I know that a lot of us have been signed on for one more year," VanSanten adds. "And I feel like there's a lot that's due to our stories. I don't feel like we're ready to end. I feel like there's so much unfinished business, and I'm really, really hoping that we'll get another year."
