Granted this news is hardly shocking, especially when Jeremy Carver has been lined up to be the new showrunner for season 8, but nonetheless it's still a relief! Supernatural has been officially renewed for Season 8 by The CW.
Other shows gaining early renewal are "The Vampire Diaries" and "90210." "America's Next Top Model" earned early renewal back in February. Curiously, "Gossip Girl" is missing from this list.
Here's the press release:
