CW picked up five new dramas to series, a record for the CW.  Arrow, Carrie Diaries. Cult, First Cut and Beauty And The Beast have all been ordered to series.

It's white knuckle time for CW's existing bubble shows! Update: white knuckle time is over:

Ringer and The Secret Circle Canceled

Nikita and Hart of Dixie  Renewed:

Gossip Girl Renewed

 

 
  • Esdru

    Renew Nikita!

  • Justin

    Arrow and Cult! YES!!!

  • Kavyn

    Yay for Arrow, First Cut and Cult :D

  • Dillan

    I’m surprised they didn’t pick up ‘The Selection’.

    This isn’t good news for the Nikita fans that still think it’s going to be renewed.

  • Pete

    Im glad its not six as predicted

    TSC has a good shot at being renewed.

  • SmG

    Selection must have bombed at the screening.

  • Mi

    Interesting that The Selection wasn’t picked, I guess the pilot really was bad..

    I’ll check Arrow, Cult, First Cut, and Beauty and the Beast, and am looking forward to Cult the most

  • Brittney

    Carrie Diaries was such a dumb choice. But everything else is decent and different for the network. I hope this means The Selection is a no.

    Even assuming a half final season in the Spring for GG, with ANTM in the Fall that means they can only renew *one* of their rookie shows for the Fall.

    Edit: Or one more if one of these shows is held until Spring with GG.

    The Selection didn’t make it? Wow, very surprised about that.

  • Mon

    Cancellation Bear: burp!

  • rob60990

    Cult is rumored to be for midseason so I’m guessing the rest will premiere in the fall.

  • Felipe Nikita

    Please please please please renew nikita!

  • davie

    ARROW!! awesome. I hope it’s good

  • forg

    Woah no The Selection? I thought that was an easy pick up given that they could ride off The Hunger Games success with this

    Anyway, glad they picked up 5 new shows, hopefully for them something gets 1 consistently. Betting on Arrow and Cult

  • SmG

    I’m glad for Arrow and Cult. I will check the other pilots for fun, I may also give B&B a shot, if it is really a more cop-procedural type show, not a fairytale story.

  • Mi

    I think First Cut means less chances for HoD, and The Selection getting axed means more chances for TSC. Perhaps both will be renewed for 13 episodes each, who knows..

  • Tom

    5 NEW SHOWS
    3 OLD SHOWS
    9 HOURS FOR FALL SEASON ( AMERICA’S NEXT TOP MODEL )

    6 PENDING SHOWS: GOSSIP, DIXIE, LA COMPLEX, NIKITA, SECRET CIRCLE & RINGER.
    I THINK ONLY 2 OF THEM WILL BE RENEWED: DIXIE & GOSSIP.

  • sara

    Wow!! That means Nikita, HoD, Ringer, TSC + OTH spots are getting replaced..

  • EatMorePez

    Look for First Cut to be paired up w/ Hart of Dixie (if it’s renewed).
