A freshman drama has received a full-season order from The CW, after the show’s premiere drew 4.1 million viewers and ranked as the network’s most-watched telecast of any show in three years, reports the Los Angeles Times’ Show Tracker.

The show is the superhero drama "Arrow," an adaptation of DC Comics’ “Green Arrow.” The series gave CW its most-watched premiere since “Vampire Diaries.” In its second week, "Arrow" maintained its audience among viewers 18-34 and 18-49, the piece notes.

CW President Mark Pedowitz said in a statement, "Our strategy of rolling out our new fall schedule later in the year really paid off for The CW on several levels, especially with ‘Arrow,’ which was the network’s most watched premiere in three years and is one of the breakout hits of the new season."
