'The Carrie Diaries' Renewed For Second Season, 'Nikita' Gets Final Season

Don't put away the neon colours and Manolos just yet folks!

As reported on Thursday via Deadline, The CW has renewed their remaining bubble series The Carrie Diaries and Nikita for another season. Both pick-ups come late to the game as the youth-skewing network already announced renewals of its current programming like The Vampire Diaries, Hart of Dixie, Supernatural, Beauty and the Beast and Arrow.

Veteran series Nikita has confirmed to be returning for their fourth and final year. While it won't be for a full 22 episode order, reports are swirling that the current number is set at six episodes. The episode order can always change based on the success (and profitability) of the final season.

The biggest surprise of the night may be the renewal of teen bubble series The Carrie Diaries. Being a prequel of international hit series Sex and the City did provide initial media buzz, the show has had a hard time building on its name, averaging around a 0.4-0.5 demo throughout its 13 episode run. Though, that doesn't mean people aren't watching - The Carrie Diaries currently ranks as The CW's second highest rated show with online streaming. The CW's multi-million dollar deals with sites such as Hulu and Netflix, as well as impending international airing, might have saved the series from an impending cancellation.
