Not much is to be said for The Originals. Currently at a 55% chance of renewal, it's in the Leans Renewal category. I need to point something out that there are rumors of stars getting casted in pilots. But they are in second position. Ratings are not too terrible for a Friday show, and normally, a 0.3 is in cancelation territory. However, the CW is in really bad shape this season. Riverdale and The 100 were already renewed despite hitting a few 0.3s. iZombie is in season 3 and has hit a 0.3 already after episode 2.

It seems that the expectations for both shows have flipped. The Originals is stronger than iZombie, despite being a Friday show. This is because iZombie's first few episodes were aired without The Flash.

Speaking of iZombie, why is it still likely to be renewed? Despite the fact that ratings are too low for a weekday, I think that it will be back. The CW has never canceled a show in its third season in recent history. I hope this doesn't turn out to be another Veronica Mars situation as far as pilots are concerned.
