"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.
