The CW Renews "Hellcats" And "Nikita"

According to CW Entertainment President Dawn Ostroff, the network has given full season, back nine episode orders to Vancouver-lensed "Hellcats" and Toronto-lensed "Nikita".

"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 Ostroff.

First-year drama "Hellcats," starring Aly Michalka and Ashley Tisdale, improved The CW's Wednesday 9-10pm time period by 80% in women 18-34, 100% in adults 18-34, and 126% in total viewers (2.5 mil).

"Hellcats" is from Bonanza Productions Inc. in association with Tom Welling Productions, Warner Bros. Television and CBS Television Studios with executive producers Kevin Murphy, Welling and Allan Arkush.

Starring Maggie Q, "Nikita" has become the second most-watched show on The CW (3.6 mil).

"Nikita" is from Warner Bros. Television in association with Wonderland Sound and Vision, with executive producers Craig Silverstein, Danny Cannon, McG and Peter Johnson.
