That episode drew 2.2 million viewers and a 0.9, down a tenth from Diaries‘ last new episode.

Additionally, The CW has renewed Beauty and the Beast and Hart of Dixie for a second and third season, respectively.

“As soon as we saw last night’s episode of The Vampire Diaries, we knew we wanted more of The Originals — Julie Plec and Kevin Williamson have done a fantastic job with The Vampire Diaries, which is as fast-paced and well-written as ever, and Julie has created an equally compelling world for The Originals,” said CW President Mark Pedowitz.  “We’re also very excited to bring backBeauty And The Beast and Hart of Dixie for next season — both series continue to be creatively strong and compelling, and their fans are incredibly passionate.  I’m very happy to have all three series on the schedule for next season.”
