Despite passing on “Supernatural” spin-off series “Bloodlines,” The CW president Mark Pedowitz still has hopes for a potential spin-off of the long-running show with discussions about the matter to take place in June and July.

Pedowitz told reporters today: “We believe that there’s a real brand in Supernatural. We had six really good pilots this year. We felt that Supernatural [spinoff Bloodlines] just didn’t quite get there, though we do know that people would come to it based on what we saw that night. I’ve already spoken to the creator and the studio. They know that we want to develop once more next season, a Supernatural spinoff. What it is and what it isn’t yet is still in the air.”

Currently finishing up its ninth season, “Supernatural” isn’t slowing down with the recent season delivering the show’s best numbers in four years. [Source: The Live Feed]

FX has cancelled both its comedies “Legit” and “Chozen” after two and one season respectively. Jim Jefferies stared in “Legit” about an expat Aussie comedian living in Venice Beach.

“Chozen” was an animated comedy about gay white rapper fresh out of prison. Both shows were axed despite plans by the network to double their original output in the next year. [Source: The Live Feed]
