CW picks up 'Nikita,' 'Hellcats,' 'Life UneXpected,' 'One Tree Hill'

The CW has renewed both its bubble shows -- Life UneXpected and One Tree Hill -- while picking up two new series for next season, "Hellcats" and "Nikita."


"Nikita" will give the network its first non-supernatural action-drama. The Warner Bros/Wonderland series stars martial arts expert Maggie Q as an assassin who goes rogue. "Hellcats" is about a college cheerleading squad at a Southern university, and is from Bonanza/Warner Bros./CBS TV.


Though rumors had started last week that both veteran soap "OTH" and critically well-liked freshman drama "Unexpected" might get another round, the move is still a bit surprising, particularly in the case of "Unexpected," which has garnered modest ratings. This will mark the eighth season for "OTH."


Update: As noted in comments by flashteevee, TV Guide is reporting that Chad Michael Murray and Hilarie Burton will return for the 8th season of One Tree Hill.

Happy about Life Unexpected. And if Hilarie Burton and Chad Michael Murray are coming back for next season, I have to catch up on OTH... I stopped watching after episode 2 because it was awful without them.

It doesn't say anything about them returning, only the show.

I'm not sure, should One Tree Hill really come back? Season Seven was boring. It was the same love drama episode after episode and I just felt dragged out, I honestly think they only exciting bit was the end when they were gunned down but somehow I think it will all be forgotten about in a few episodes of next season. Part of what made me love OTH was that not everybody was rich. They didn't all have endless amounts of money and some struggled to cope. Now they are basball players, musicians, directors and fashion directors with no money worries in the world. Even if Lucas and Peyton do come back I still don't think it will ever be as good.
However I understand why the did it. Somehow I think this will be the last season of it - I mean, how long can you drag out love drama really?
