Supernatural New CW president Mark Pedowitz came to the network's executive session at the Television Critics Association press tour on Thursday morning in good spirits. Bringing three new scripted shows and the promise of three new reality offerings, The CW seems optimistic that this season will be their strongest yet.

Pedowitz was on hand to assuage the fears of 'Supernatural' fans, revealing that, despite internet rumblings and rumors, the network has "no plans" for Season 7 to be the last year of the spooky drama series, revealing that he and the rest of the network's brass hope the series goes "on and on," and that they'll be examining the show's future on a season-by-season basis, depending on how the ratings hold up.

When asked about the popularity of the stalwart show, Pedowitz pointed out, "it's about the love of two brothers, it's not demon-of-the-week," since fans are undoubtedly invested in the story of Sam and Dean over the horror aspect.

Pedowitz also shared a little about what we can expect this season on 'The Vampire Diaries' -- in short, "the love triangle between Stefan, Elena and Damon," Stefan's upcoming struggle between staying good or turning his humanity off in the face of his partnership with Klaus, and Klaus' mission to create a hybrid army.

As for another veteran show, Pedowitz confirmed that 'One Tree Hill' is currently set for a 13-episode final season, and the network feels that the number is a good fit for wrapping up the show. James Lafferty is signed for multiple episodes, but Pedowitz didn't have the confirmed number on hand during the session.

The CW has been closed off to comedies over the past few seasons, but Pedowitz admitted that a number of new comedies on other networks this fall might've been a good fit for the CW demographic (specifically ABC's 'Apartment 23,' Fox's 'New Girl' and CBS' '2 Broke Girls) and conceded that the network is open to comedy pitches for next season.

Also on the subject of next year, Pedowitz said that the CW is very interested in developing a new superhero show in the vein of 'Smallville,' they're just looking for the right hero, and will be working with Warner Bros. and DC to hopefully develop something next year.

Are you relieved to hear the 'Supernatural' news? Excited for more DC heroes?
