"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," CW Entertainment President Dawn Ostroff said in a statement. "By giving our two freshman series and proven performer One Tree Hill full orders, we'll be able to continue our success and momentum throughout the rest of the season."
Nikita, starring Maggie Q as a trained assassin on the run, has become the second most-watched series on the network with an average of 3.6 million viewers. Cheerleader comedy Hellcats has averaged 2.5 million viewers since its premiere last month.
Now in its eighth season, One Tree Hill drew 1.8 million viewers for its most recent episode.
The only CW series that has yet to receive a full-season pickup is sophomore drama Life Unexpected, which drew 1.5 million viewers for its latest episode. The CW recently ordered two more scripts.
