The CW has given good news to its three new dramas today, picking up full seasons of The Secret Circle along with Ringer and Hart of Dixie.
"We believe in the creative strength of these dramas, and by giving them back nine orders we can give our audience the chance to enjoy complete seasons of all three of them," CW president Mark Pedowitz said in a press release. "With compelling storylines, engaging characters and tremendous buzz, we firmly believe that Hart Of Dixie, Ringer and The Secret Circle can become signature series for The CW, the kind of top-notch shows that are synonymous with our brand."
The Secret Circle is somewhat of a breakout hit for the network. The freshman series has quickly become The CW's second-biggest drama, only behind The Vampire Diaries, which it follows on Thursday nights. And while it may not be the ratings powerhouse that its aforementioned lead-in is, the show's viewership numbers should still see it secure a multi-season run down the road.
