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.

    I love the CW so much right now. I can’t believe they actually CARE about the quality of their shows. Mark Pedowitz, you are the MAN!

  • sara

    WOW! Now I’m worried about GG… anything can really happen.. but I’m positive for a final 13 :)

  • Joe

    Wow. Wow. Wow. Wow. Wow. This is amazing news. This is really a two-season renewal in all likelihood. I can’t believe it.

  • Mike

  • KS

    I hope CW announces about GG and HoD soon.

    @Oliver, they weren’t really inaccurate. They had it as a toss-up basically in their final guesses.

  • SmG

    I think Nikita will the next “Chuck” or “Fringe” for TVBTN traffic next year :)

  • Joshua

    unbelievable. i thought it was a goner. but freaking happy that it got renewed. i find it pointless to be bashing shows and fans. if a show doesn’t get renewed suck it. if it gets renewed just bask in the spirit of happiness.

    I guess this means the freshman shows are all dead

  • Pete

    @ Kavyn

  • Rocky

  • The Original J

    Did not see this coming. Was hoping it would happen. This is crazy.

  • Diogo

    All the 100 thousand Nikita’s watchers are celebrating now

  • The End


    Fake Kathy Bates twitter account clearly. An actress of her level would have more than 6 thosand followers.

  • Petar

    CW stigma will be even bigger now! If they try to go with nikita inti syndication in 4-th season this show will be 0.0 0.1 rating! Even cable is not with that. CW CEO are really incompetent.
