One Tree Hill will be on forever it seems, the veteran drama, which began on The WB has been renewed for a 9th season. The CW also gave a greenlight to a second season of Nikita, which closer to the end of the season became kind of lame but ended things rather spectacularly with a killer game changer of a finale.
On the otherside of the coin the CW has cancelled the underperforming Hellcats, the cheerleading/legal series starred Aly Michalka and Ashley Tisdale.
Asides from giving a pick-up to the Sarah Michelle Gellar thriller, The Ringer, which was initially developed for CBS, the CW has also granted series orders to early frontrunners The Secret Circle a supernatural drama about witches from Kevin Williamson starring Life Unexpected’s Britt Robertson and Hart of Dixie, a medical dramedy about a young doctor (Rachel Bilson) who inherits a rural practice. Also picked up was the reality series H8R a series that pairs celebrities with their biggest haters.
