"The best way I can answer that is, [executive producers] Julie [Plec], Kevin Williamson, the studio and The CW promise a fantastic series finale," The CW President Mark Pedowitz cyptically teased Sunday at the Television Critics Association winter previews.
The always charming head of the network was similarly tight-lipped regarding the future of The Vampire Diaries spin-off The Originals, which returns for its fourth season Friday, March 17 at 8/7c and was not among the seven shows that earned early renewals from the network Sunday morning.
"I hope The Originals can continue. A lot of it depends on its performance," said Pedowitz. "I'm counting on Julie to deliver for this season."
The Vampire Diaries returns for its final episodes Friday, Jan. 13 at 8/7c on The CW.
