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.

    Because obviously it’s impossible TSC didn’t get itself cancelled. Nope, it was all Nikita’s fault. That’s right, Nikita’s the reason why the TSC was cancelled, and all your moaning will change that.

    The hatred is really hilarious. The more you bitch and whine that TSC was cancelled and blame it on Nikita, the bigger I smile. For real though, shut up and eat your balogna*.

    Jesus. Get over it. It’s been 48 hours.

    Also I’m hoping this article becomes one of the most commented threads on TVBTN, just goes to show Nikita brings in more buzz than we all thought :). What was the record again? 34 pages for Fringe’s renewal last year? We’re only a page away!

    *Ringer reference, just for you ;)

    I hope the CW schedule is announced before Thursday. They need a major overhaul. Things are clearly not working. They need to counterprogram ABC Family which always murders GG/HOD.

    Dumping the aging ANTM/GG would be great, since that’s what Fridays are for, not for the 2nd biggest hit and an undiscovered gem.

    @Kavyn
    The record was actually 38 pages for Fringe renewal last year, you are still 5 pages away from it, but not far ;)

    As much as I’m happy for Nikita and HoD fans, but I’m sad at Ringer and TSC cancellation, they were pretty much the only shows I watched on the CW as I hate TVD, dropped GG in season 2, dropped SPN this season, I couldn’t get really attached to Nikita last season and 90120 and HoD aren’t my kind of shows.I may try Arrow next season. It’s a shame CW didn’t pick The Selection, I was looking forward to it.

    @Kavyn-Thanks for acting mature…now you’ve put a smile on my face!

    “Jesus. Get over it. It’s been 48 hours.”

    You know perfectly well if Nikita were cancelled or whatever other show you watch, you would still be upset over it.

  • Kavyn

    Hahahah, we’re both immature, lets put it that way! :)

    And yes I’d be upset, but I wouldn’t continue to blame TSC for Nikita’s cancellation.

    The only problem with Nikita is that it is on the CW network…if it were on a serious network like Fox it would have a better writing team…as it is though it is one of the best shows on TV people are not watching, but instead are putting up with crap like Bones and a million CSI shows which all have been in the toilet thisyear. Nikita’s characters are strong and dimensional, and the weekly plots are intense. Michael and Nikita sizzle and so do Sean and Alex.Percy is a real villain you love to hate…Amanda is so Cruella> The twist with the CIA character is good, this show is GOOD. Better than all the vampire and witch teenie popper shows combined. Keep Nikita! Move to a better network!

    Dear people repeatedly saying stuff like “haha, Nikita is gonna get 0.3’s and 0.2’s next year!”, as if saying it over and over again is going to make it true: here’s a bit of advice. All the hate is going to get you nowhere. You’ll probably be happier and enjoy life more if you focus on the things you love, not the ones you hate.

    I was rooting for HoD, GG, TSC and Ringer to get cancelled insofar as it would have improved Nikita’s chances, but you NEVER saw me hating on them or mocking their fans. And now, you don’t see me rubbing salt in the Ringer and TSC fans’ wounds, or saying GG and HoD will hit 0.3’s and 0.2’s next year.

    Also? Just a reminder. Seven or eight of the first ten episodes of Nikita’s season got 0.6’s, on Friday. (That’s when HoD, steadily getting 0.6 on Mondays, is practically a success for the CW now.) Its first 0.4 arrived in episode 16, after *three* hiatuses.

  • mercedes

    yes yes yes about hart of dixie . Am falling head over heels on that show, so am glade its beening renewed :)

  • Kitty

    Yesssss!!!!! Nikita is staying on!!! I was going to be so depressed if they had cancelled it. The series just keeps getting better and better!

    Just don’t put Nikita on Thursdays… conflicts with watching The Vampire Diaries >.<"

  • Ryan Fletcher

    @Kitty, I think the ratings would be better if Nikita paired with The Vampire Diaries. The viewership was certainly better when they did that for Season 1 compared to Season 2 on Fridays with Supernatural.

    Hopefully Nikita is moved to a better day than Friday and performs better.

    Take that you annoying NIKITA HATERS!!! Go flock back to your Secret Circle or wherever you came from!!

  • Sunny

    Happy))))))))))))))))))))))) love maggie & SHANE!!!!!!!!!!!

  • Bre Ortega

    OMG!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! NIKITA IS SAVED!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! I AM SOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO HAPPY!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! LOVE SHAGGIE!!! OMG!!!!! FORGET YOU HATERS THAT DON’T LIKE THE SHOW ITS AWSOME!!!!!

  • Bre Ortega

    my wish list for season 3:
    -NIKITA AND MICHAEL BREAK UP
    -NIKITA GETS WITH OWEN
    -SHE SLEEPS WITH HIM AND FINDS OUT SHES PREGO!
    -MICHAEL THINKS ITS HIS AND GETS HAPPY
    -NIKITA DOESN’T WANT TO TELL HIM ITS OWENS
    -SHE TRIES TO HIDE IT FROM DIVISION SO SHE CAN STILL KICK BUTT!
    *YOU CAN PROBABLY TELL I USED TO WATCH SOAP OPERAS.. XD

  • jodessss

    YAY IM SOOOO HAPPY NIKITA IS THE BEST SHOW EVERRRR I LOVE IT AND I NEVER WANT IT TO GO XXXX

  • Tony

    “-SHE SLEEPS WITH HIM AND FINDS OUT SHES PREGO!”

    Oh heck no. Keep the pregnancy sh1t away from Nikita. That’s what the other teenie bopper shows are for. The moment they introduce a pregnancy storyline is the moment I stop watching.

  • gooz

    YEEEEEEEEES! HERE WE GO!!!!!!!

  • Blackanator

    I wish that ringer was renewed as well as nikita
