Gossip Girl will return next season for its sixth and final season, Hart of Dixie for its second season and Nikita for its third season. I hear the orders for Nikita and Hart of Dixie are for 22 episodes, while the order for Gossip Girl is 13 episodes.
Both Nikita, Hart of Dixie and Gossip Girl had been largely expected to return. Despite Nikita‘s faltering ratings, the series has strong international sales, Hart of Dixie has been doing fairly well in its 22 episode first season, and despite Gossip Girl’s recent slip in the ratings the series has long been expected to return for a final season. Conversely, the cancellation of Ringer and The Secret Circle had also been expected due to both shows’ inability to find and maintain much of an audience
Both Nikita and Hart of Dixie join previously renewed series 90210, Supernatural and The Vampire Diaries. All five series will also be joined on the network, next season, by new shows Arrow, Beauty and the Beast, The Carrie Diaries, Cult and First Cut.
