As expected, The CW has opted to bring back One Tree Hill and Life Unexpected next season.
There’s no word on the exact episode orders, but I’m hearing both will return for at least 12 eps apiece.
The net also picked up the Tom Welling-produced cheerleading drama Hellcats and the Maggie Q-fronted action-drama Nikita.
Oh, and Melrose Place? It’s officially dead.
My Bubble Show Scorecard has been updated.
Keep reading for official descriptions of Nikita and Hellcats…
NIKITA stars Maggie Q in the title role as a spy and assassin for a top secret U.S. government agency. She rebels against the system that created her and will stop at nothing to bring their powerful operation to an end.
HELLCATS is a coming-of-age drama about a pre-law student (Aly Michalka, Bandslam) whose world is turned upside down when she loses her scholarship and has to join the college’s competitive cheerleading squad. This fun, energetic series is a behind-the-scenes look at the drama, politics, and pressure surrounding the high school football program at a Southern university.
The CW formally announces its fall schedule on Thursday.
