The CW Renews Nikita and The Carrie Diaries

"Yeah, expected," and "WHAT IN THE WIDE WORLD OF SPORTS!?!?!?" That was my reaction to the news that The CW has renewed Nikita and The Carrie Diaries, as reported by Deadline Hollywood

The smart money was on The CW renewing Nikita for a final season. Deadline's story says the renewal will be brief, with a six-episode fourth season wrapping up the series' run. The CW has not officially announced an episode count just yet, however. 

As for The Carrie Diaries, total shock. Popular opinion was that EITHER Nikita or The Carrie Diaries would return, but The CW went ahead and renewed 'em both. There's no word on how long The Carrie Diaries' second season will be, but Deadline says the show is looking at a 13-episode order for midseason. 

That means The CW's schedule next season will include Arrow, Supernatural, The Vampire Diaries, Hart of Dixie, The Carrie Diaries, Nikita, and new series The Originals, The 100, The Tomorrow People, Star-Crossed, and Reign.

    Really happy Carrie Diaries was renewed

    I'm actually pleased about The Carrie Diaries. It's a delightful show. I like a show that shows kids that actually look like teens, behaving the way teens do, in a really cute, sweet, funny, retro kind of way. Good for them.

    BEST news this week especially after TOUCH is not renewed. The Carries diaries is not perfect but it is certainly not the worst show on TV. Now I just hope they will fast forward a few years so even if it gets cancel after season 2 we will see more of Carrie.

    Glad Nikita is back; a shame it's the only consistenly good show left on the CW.

    And the crowd goes mild. Does anyone who isn't a teenage girl care about anything on the CW?

    glad nikita is coming back...even though it is for only 6 eps. hopefully they give us a satisfying ending.

  • MarlboroMagpi May 10, 2013

    I think it is not confirmed it is 6 eps. I hope they have more ! I also hoped its a good ending and not one of them (Nikki or Michael) getting killed.

  • dh4645 May 10, 2013

    i still remember the ending of la femme nikita on USA....that's when i first heard coldplay. love "spies" song. hopefully they put it in nikita finale too

    Yeah Nikita! I guess DVD sales and overseas love is good for something. 6 episodes would not be enough to hit the syndication threshhold so I'm thinking 14. They will have 66 episodes at close of this season and the syndication threshhold is about 80 for hour long dramas. Runner Craig Silverstein tweeted shortened season but didn't say how many. This is great news. Its numbers were almost as good as 'Carrie Diaries' and that show had a great day and time DURING THE WEEK. This show is fantastic; can't wait to see how it sets up for the closure as this great season closes up.
