Supernatural, Arrow, Revolution And Other WB TV Shows Set For Comic Con, Preview Night Screenings Announced
Warner Bros. Television Group has had a pretty sizable presence at Comic Con in San Diego in recent years, and this year is no exception. The studio announced the 17 series that will be present at SDCC this year, including the new dramas that will be screened during preview night. Those SDCC attendees there for Preview Night (Wed.

There's mostly good news for two CW shows. The network has reportedly decided to move forward with Nikita and The Carrie Diaries. The "mostly" part factors into Nikita, as the series has technically been renewed, however it sounds like it'll be a short season and the final one for the spy drama.
Those familiar with Starz' Spartacus series know the gladiator-focused drama doesn't shy away from violence. People getting slashed up is a big part of the show, though there is an actual story being told. So it's not all that surprising to hear that the drama topped the list for most deaths per episode, beating out HBO's Game of Thrones by a fair margin.
Hail to the Chief: Cameron Daddo is stepping up to the Oval Office on Nikita. The actor who once played the vice president on the seventh season of 24 will play the President in the CW’s drama, and is set to be at the center of a major plot line that will play out as the President and Division face off in a serious way.
While the fall season has yet to wrap up, the CW is already looking toward Midseason. The network released the premiere schedule for Winter 2012, which includes the premiere date for the final season of One Tree Hill, as well as the series premiere of their unscripted series Remodeled.
Even as a show that maintains an impressively solid through line, Nikita also boasts a relentless ability to offer up new twists and turns and, naturally, that’s what this roundtable conversation with Kim focused on over at New York Comic Con. Not only did writer-producer Albert Kim reveal quite a bit about the show writers’ process, like the practice of having the writers produce their own episodes, but he also dropped a ton of hints as to where season two is heading.
Clearly Maggie Q is fantastic on The CW’s Nikita, but did you know that she’s the first Asian woman to lead a television drama? I certainly didn’t and, funny thing, neither did Q until an issue of The Hollywood Reporter landed on her doorstep while she was in negotiations for the role and read an article that highlighted the first time feat.
Shane West is no stranger to TV. He starred as Eli Sammler in Once and Again when he was just 20-years-old and then as Dr. Ray Barnett on ER for a number of years. But in the case of Nikita, not only had he matured to the point that he’s communicating with the show’s writers, but he also had the privilege of developing a family dynamic with the cast and crew from day one.
While the celebrities most beloved by today’s teens are likely to be searching for a place to display an award shaped like a giant surfboard, the Teen Choice ratings are in. The event, which aired on Fox last night, didn’t win the night, but numbers are up for teen viewers. Meanwhile, The CW has cause to celebrate, having taken home more awards than any other network.
While we’re still waiting for some big summer shows to premiere, The CW is prepared for the Fall season and has already locked down the schedule for their new and returning original programming. The CW’s fall season will begin on September 13th with the return of 90210 for it’s fourth season, followed by the series premiere of Ringer, which stars Sarah Michelle Gellar.
After narrowly avoiding cancellation a year ago, many thought the melodrama had run its course, but if there’s one thing the CW is short on, it’s established brands. One Tree Hill has the name recognition and built in fanbase to make itself at least marginally profitable, and it’s inclusion in the fall schedule gives the network a hint of stability
The CW’s set to begin rolling out their Fall 2010 early in September and for those of you who are interested in the Nikita reboot, we have some information on the series, as well as a few trailers.
We’re at the midway point of August and while that might mean the countdown to cooler weather and the return to school or work has already begun for some, it also means we’re just a few weeks away from the start of the new TV season. Up ahead is the primetime schedule for the Fall 2010 season.
At last, Comic-Con has begun and among the events that kicked off preview night was a special sneak preview of The CW’s upcoming new drama series Nikita. From the looks of it, The CW is all about bringing back the girl power with this one.
The CW announced their 2010 Fall premiere schedule and they're starting the season off by blocking the return of America's Next Top Model with the premiere of one of their new series Hellcats.
