The CW just released an official announcement that SupernaturalOne Tree Hill, Smallville, Gossip Girl and America's Next Top Model have been picked up for next season. Yes, we will see all these shows in the fall for the 2008-09 season!

Happy Snoopy dance with me, will ya?

The episode orders for each of these series remains "TBD," but I can assure you that the cast of OTH is celebrating the pickup of its sixth season—most likely at Hilarie Burton's house—right now in Wilmington, North Carolina. I just ran into Sophia Bush at dinner in West Hollywood a few days ago and had a nice chat about how the show is really, as she put it, "in its groove" this season, and how she and the cast feel they have a good thing going and hope it continues. Word. Ask and ye shall receive.

I also just checked in with Gossip boss Josh Schwartz, and he tells me, "Didn't know [the pickup] was happening today but I guess—when the show is Gossip Girl—reading it online is as good! Stephanie and I couldn't be happier or more grateful to the CW for all their support. We've had a blast working with this cast and crew, and shooting in NYC has been awesome. We're excited about what's to come in the next five episodes and season two." Josh's other new show, Chuck, is also expected back this fall, so he's just on a roll. Whee!

And while Gossip Girl and Top Model seemed no-brainers for fall, Supernatural and Smallville fans are most assuredly breathing a huge sigh of relief at these pickups, since the fates of both series have been in limbo as of late. Super boss Eric Kripke knows he owes a great deal to you fans and your very vocal support efforts, especially in this here wacky world o' web. "Our online community is a rowdy and boisterous one," he says. "And we love them for it."

So which series are you most excited about seeing the light of fall? Post your affections below! (And then say a little prayer for Aliens in America, will ya?)
