CWTV's 'Beauty and the Beast' Renewed for Second Season; 'Supernatural' for Ninth Season


CWTV's new primetime TV show, 'Beauty and the Beast', has been renewed for a second season. I am late coming to this show, but so far it looks very promising. From IMDb.com:

The CW has renewed "Beauty And The Beast" for a second season. The freshman drama, a grittier take on the classic fairy tale, won the 2013 People's Choice Award for Best New Drama. Still, "Beauty And The Beast" struggled a bit to find success in the ratings, and was on the renewal bubble. The show has averaged about 1.5 million viewers per episode and only scored a 0.6 in the 18-49 demo.
Here is the update on the renewal of 'Supernatural' for a ninth season. I am also curious whether this show will reach ten seasons. From Screenrant.com:
Sam and Dean’s adventures will continue for (at least) one more year, as CW announced that it has given an early renewal for Supernatural season 9. Could showrunner Jeremy Carver’s plan to reach season 10 actually happen? The news, announced via press release from CW, also came with news of Arrow season 2 and a new season of The Vampire Dairies, helping to the secure the network’s top ratings performers for one more year. Nothing was mentioned in regards to whether or not Nikita will continue on Fridays in season 4. Once riddled with the programming “death slot” next to Nikita, Supernatural was rescued from Friday nights to be paired with new series Arrow, the network’s (now) most watched show, which led to a ratings increase of 15% from season 8 to season 9. But there’s more to Supernatural’s renewal than just improved ratings.
