More US pick-ups this time for Hellcats and Nikita, while the long running One Tree Hill also wins more episodes.
The CW Network has given Hellcats and Nikita the green-light for more episodes. Both shows are airing on GO! in Australia.
Nikita, starring Maggie Q premiered to strong ratings (3.6 million viewers) and has since become the network’s second-most-watched show after The Vampire Diaries.
Hellcats has also performed solidly for the network, averaging 2.5 million viewers and doing a better job holding on to lead-in America’s Next Top Model‘s audience than any other CW show before it.
Absent from the list is Life Unexpected, now in its second season. The CW has picked up a couple scripts for the show, however.
“This fall, The CW made several strategic scheduling moves, including adding two of the most buzzed-about new series, Hellcats and Nikita, to our line-up, and we’re thrilled that they’ve paid off for us,” said CW entertainment president Dawn Ostroff. “By giving our two freshman series and proven performer One Tree Hill full orders, we’ll be able to continue our success and momentum throughout the rest of the season.”
One Tree Hill will re-appear on Australian screens on Eleven next year.
Also this week, Human Target received an order for 2 additional scripts while NBC’s Chuck was approved for 11 more episodes, Jerry Bruckheimer’s Chase got a full-season order and Undercovers won four more episodes.
