The CW Renews Nikita, Gossip Girl, and Hart of Dixie

Just a week ago, The CW renewed The Vampire Diaries, Supernatural, and 90210, leaving Hart of Dixie, Gossip Girl, The Secret Circle, and Nikita to fight for spots on the network's schedule. Well, it looks like witches and twins got beat up.

The CW has renewed Nikita for a third season. The news first came from the Twitter feed of showrunner Craig Silverstein, who simply said:

Nikita seems like a pretty solid bet to be paired up with Supernatural on Fridays again.

The CW also ordered a final season for Gossip Girl, reportedly giving the once-buzzed-about series 11 episodes to wrap things up. Hart of Dixie also escaped cancellation with a 22-episode order.

That gives Josh Schwartz's Fake Empire productions four shows on The CW: Gossip Girl, Hart of Dixie, and two new series in Cult and The Carrie Diaries (more on those two new ones soon). Kind of makes Seth MacFarlane look like an underachiever.

    Am glad about Hart Of Dixie

    I'm glad to see it renewed for another season as a whole new story line in in the making.

    Properly done, it could turn Nikita from a underdog to a new "good versus evil" hero.

    I am glad that Nikita got renewed but I hope that they move it to another time slot because I have so many things recording on Friday nights. Someday I wish that Comcast would copy DISH networks Hopper and make there DVRs be able to record up to 6 shows at once and be able to watch them from anywhere in the house.

    Just watch the season final of Hart of Dixie it was really good. I kinda of hope Zoey ends up with Wade tho. They seem to make a pretty good couple, there is some thing real about them.

    Nikita is an awesome show, I think it's done perfectly. The writing is exactly what I want. Every actor is perfect for their character role. I love the well done and believable high tech and tactical stuff. Unlike a lot of shows with lead female roles who fight and are often just not believable (like 'Missing'), the lead female roles in this show are believable.

    Nikita is an "A" class show.
