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.

    “Yea, Tweeters. Sad news today. Harry’s Law will not be renewed for a 3rd season. We are all terribly sad. Many thanks for all your support.”

    I think Miracle Max saved Nikita

    Explanation of all but dead, mostly dead, all dead
    From The Princess Bride

    Miracle Max: [Lifts and drops the arm of the dead Westley] I’ve seen worse.

    Miracle Max: He probably owes you money huh? I’ll ask him.
    Inigo Montoya: He’s dead. He can’t talk.
    Miracle Max: Whoo-hoo-hoo, look who knows so much. It just so happens that your friend here is only MOSTLY dead. There’s a big difference between mostly dead and all dead. Mostly dead is slightly alive. With all dead, well, with all dead there’s usually only one thing you can do.
    Inigo Montoya: What’s that?
    Miracle Max: Go through his clothes and look for loose change.

    Inigo Montoya: But this is Buttercup’s true love – If you heal him, he will stop Humperdinck’s wedding.
    Miracle Max: Wait. Wait. I make him better, Humperdinck suffers?
    Inigo Montoya: Humiliations galore!
    Miracle Max: That is a noble cause. Give me the sixty-five, I’m on the job.

    Westley: Why won’t my arms move?
    Fezzik: You’ve been mostly-dead all day.

    Westley: I told you I would always come for you. Why didn’t you wait for me?
    Buttercup: Well… you were dead.
    Westley: Death cannot stop true love. All it can do is delay it for a while.
    Buttercup: I will never doubt again.
    Westley: There will never be a need.

    Let the madness begin. LOL! TheCW really is hopeless. It must be planning to renew all its dire programming.

  • SteveO

    I know the new CW prez said they wanted to have more programming on the air next year, maybe they’ll only cancel Ringer? Doubtful, but all of this is so surprising.

  • poshreany

    maybe cw might just cancel all there new shows, thats why they have renewed nikita, and most likely gossip girl witch are there old shows. glad for nikita such a good show, i just hope ringer has a chance of being renewed now… i don’t care about gg,hod,tsc.

  • Freyja
