After months spent in limbo, fans of The CW's 'Nikita' were overjoyed to learn yesterday that their favorite division spies would indeed return for a fourth season, along with a second season of 'Sex and the City' prequel 'The Carrie Diaries." The CW won't release its full episode order and schedule until next week, but for how many episodes can we expect 'Nikita' back? And will it prove the final season?
And the hits keep on coming! Shortly after announcing their multiple pickups, and long after many of their existing CW counterparts have been renewed, both 'Nikita' and 'The Carrie Diaries' have been picked up for additional seasons. 'Nikita' will return for a shortened fourth outing, while 'The Carrie Diaries' will continue its 'Sex and the City' buildup into a second season, so get the latest on both renewals inside!
It will still be a few weeks yet before the major broadcast networks announce their official plans for renewals and cancellations, though a few networks have already made decisions on their more assured properties. The CW will soon decide the fate of perpetual bubble series 'Nikita,' but early word has broken that the network will likely renew that Maggie Q-fronted spy drama, if only for a shortened season to wrap up the narrative. Find out how long 'Nikita' could return for next season inside!
Earlier today, news broke that NBC could be next in line to issue early renewals to the series of its current line-up, with plenty of shows on the bubble for cancellation. CBS and FOX have already issued mayor renewals, along with The CW's pickups for 'Arrow,' 'The Vampire Diaries' and 'Supernatural,' but what other CW series are on the chopping block? And which might get truncated final season orders bolstered by online sales?
The good news continues rolling for TV fans, which this year seems to have endured far less tragic cancellations of its on-the-bubble, but cult popular series. Not only have niche favorites like 'Community' and 'Fringe' lived to see additional season orders, but now spy action-thriller 'Nikita' has reportedly been ordered for an additional 22-episode season on The CW as well.
Yesterday was a good day for many of The CW's fans, given full season renewals for the network's bigger hits like 'Supernatural,' 'The Vampire Diaries,' and even the '90210' reboot, or adaptation, or whatever we're calling it. Apart from those three however, what of the network's other on-the-bubble series? Who's most likely dead in the water, and who's still got a fighting chance?
Whether you miss the days of Max Fleischer cartoons or even Bruce Timm's take on the DC Universe, there's no shortage of celebrity buzz surrounding voice castings for DC superheroes. And now where Susan Eisenberg, Keri Russell, and Lucy Lawless herself have donned the animated tiara before, now another woman warrior is set for Wonder Woman.
