Triple Threat Teen Drama Galore

Michael Ausiello over @ Entertainment Weekly reported earlier today that the CW has ordered additional episodes of their three young adult dramas.

One Tree Hill (Chad Michael Murray, Sophia Bush, Hilarie Burton, James Lafferty, Bethany Joy) has picked up steam this year and will be filming a total of 24 episodes for what could be their final season. Could it be because crazy nanny Carrie was just that loony that we couldn't help but watch? Or does everyone really love little Jamie? Really?

Newcomer 90210 (Jessica Stroup, Dustin Milligan, Shenae Grimes, Ryan Eggold, Rob Estes) has also been asked to shoot 24 shows for the 08-09 season. Original viewers will definitely be back once Jennie Garth and Shannen Doherty begin to re-appear. And Jason Priestley is slated to direct an upcoming episode. Hopefully the one where Shannen and Jennie are in.

And of course, Gossip Girl (Blake Lively, Leighton Meester, Chace Crawford, Penn Badgley, Ed Westwick, Taylor Momsen). Theirs is the big one. The 2nd season has been phenomenal and the ratings have gone up up up. The CW had previously requested 2 additional episodes bringing their count to 24. They just tacked on one more show, bringing viewers 25 episodes for season 2. These kids will surely be banking bucks. Yay! More Dorota!
