The CW has renewed One Tree Hill and Nikita and pulled the plug on Hellcats.
Long-running CW soap One Tree Hill had been expected to come back for a ninth season already, so the news comes as no huge surprise. Most of the cast, including original series actresses Sophia Bush and Bethany Joy Galeotti, had signed on for another season in recent weeks. Only cast member James Lafferty, has yet to renew his contract and plans to return part-time next year, according to TVLine.
One Tree Hill pulled in 1.3 million viewers for its most recent new episode last week.
