Fans of Nikita rejoice! It has been renewed for a third season. While Bill and I had it as more or less of a toss-up for renewal, our source was either flat-out wrong or things got un-bleak quickly. But for fans, all's well that ends well!
And it gets better for Nikita fans as a third season renewal practically guarantees there will be a fourth for syndication purposes.
Update: Hart of Dixie has been renewed. No word yet on Secret Circle.
Both renewals are for full seasons of 22 episodes.
CW has also ordered five new dramas to series, and canceled Ringer and The Secret Circle while renewing Gossip Girl for a short final season.
