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.

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.

Don't you find with Nikita you're always surprised at how entertaining it is? Albeit, what does it say about a show if you always have low expectation?

Hooray, GO Nikita! Seriously guys this is one kick-ass show that delivers in every episode with an amazing cast, stellar acting and a just, down-right impressive creative team! Everybody needs to watch this show or catch up over the summer and tune in when it returns! I would love for it to go on forever...oh I have renewed my faith in humanity...I mean the CW<3

Love that Niki will be back but quite sad about TSC.



I think the guys at CW were so high they pressed the wrong button should have cancelled HOD or 90210.

People of the internet. Please, use this summer to catch up on Nikita. It's not like you're doing anything else with your time, amiright? This show is the bees knees. Give it five episodes. FIVE. Guwan!

Yay for Nikita and Hart of Dixie. HoD is nice easy viewing for me with all the crime stuff I like to watch. Hopefully there's still hope for Secret Circle, looked like a great setup for season 2.

oh boooooo just saw the other announcement that TSC is officially cancelled :(

Are they serious????? TSC is gone?? Who in the hell takes decisions over there???? What moron would recommend cancelling a series which did so well in the first part of the season?? The second part fall could be due to their storyline which could be rectified? They cancelled this over Nikita, GG and HoD?????? Each of them always had much worse numbers! This must be the stupidest programming decision of the season!

Ratings are not everything. They usually don't include people watching things online, and Nikita has a VAST international following, many, or maybe most, of which watch online instead of on the CW. So if that were taken into account, Nikita probably performs FAR better than most, if not all, the other shows on CW. Now, why they cancelled Secret Circle over Hart of Dixie, which seems to have the most boring premise possible, is another question I can't answer.

The secret circle was ruined by bad acting in my opinion... Also some pretty bad plot stories in some episodes. I was expecting it at the middle of the season but still watched the whole :)

So glad for Nikita. This second season is so much better than the first. Every episode is full of action. So glad!!!

Dead. Just dead. Goodbye cruel world. Or at least, goodbye CW. We're officially done.

Price Peterson's recap is going to be a morbid affair. At least there are fellow fans like us who know our pain. We're not alone.

*Cries* It's gone too soon. You know when Cass told her evil daddy she wanted to destroy the witch hunters? The CW are my witch hunters right now.

I'm not a violent person, but right now (if I was a witch) I think I'd be capable of magically exploding CW executives.

I don't understand, does this means that TSC is officially canceled? Glad for Nikita anyways, why wouldn't anyone wanna watch sexy kickass super-assassins on their tv?

Yes, it's officially canceled ...



I think I'm losing it. I never thought a TV show cancellation could affect me like this.

Wonderful news! Nikita is a completely underrated show. It has a stellar cast, and has managed to push out a steady flow of solid action packed episodes. And Lyndsy Fonseca and Maggie Q are a major reason for watching the show. They are quite a pair, if you know what I mean.

Give TSC a CW made for TV movie. They owe us at least that much, right?

YES.

Nice. Great for Nikita that really is a good show. However, someone needs to be killed off. It can't be two killer assassin couples against the world.
Reply

Says who?
Reply

Says people that watch the show for the action and intrigue and don't want to watch Alex and Sean make out in the back seat. If you want that there is always Gossip Girl. Come on you have to give us guys at least a couple shows on the CW.
Reply
Flag
Sorry, but that sounds like total bullcrap! If Alex and Sean making out in the back seat bothered you that much, then you should be watching Gossip Girl! All the action, suspense, and intrigue in this series, and you focus on two people making out in a back seat?! Come on! Besides, those two killer assassin couples are freakin awesome, and Nikita needs all the help she can get.

Crushed, hurt, crying, devastated. OMG THE SECRET CIRCLE. My heart is so broken right now, I can even... )':



And the set up for the 2nd season was brilliant! Crying forever. I'm going to miss the witches of Chance Harbor dearly. I'm going to miss Price Peterson's Photo recaps so much. Sigh.



The cast, the crew, Andrew Miller the EP, all fantastic. I hope to see them all on my screen sometime soon though!



Now excuse me while I go sit in a dark, cold corner and cry while I rock back and forth.

Practically everyone knew Ringer was dead, but how could The CW not renew The Secret Circle?? I still have to catch the second half of the season online because too many other shows got in the way, but damn. Kevin Williamson must be displeased.



Also, Hart of Dixie was renewed??? WTF is going on!
