The CW Renews Nikita And One Tree Hill

After a long wait fans of The CW’s One Tree Hill and Nikita can breathe a sigh of relief. The network has given freshman Nikita a full season order and a 13-episode ninth season to the veteran One Tree Hill, which will premiere at midseason.

Hellcats, produced by Smallville’s Tom Welling, was canceled after one season. The series finale will air Tuesday at 9/8c.

The CW has picked up Sarah Michelle Gellar’s Ringer, which was previously shopped to CBS, and three other shows, including the Rachel Bilson/Josh Schwartz project Hart of Dixie.

In Ringer, Gellar stars as a woman who goes on the run after witnessing a murder and hides out by assuming the life of her wealthy identical twin sister. She learns that her sister’s life is just as complicated and dangerous as the one she’s trying to leave behind. The show also stars Ioan Gruffudd, Kristoffer Polaha, Nestor Carbonell, Tara Summers and Mike Colter.

Hart of Dixie follows Bilson’s NYC doctor to a small Southern town after she inherits a medical practice.

The CW also picked up supernatural drama The Secret Circle to pair with The Vampire Dairies, and H8R, a reality show about celebrities trying to win over their haters.
