According to Variety the CW is looking to pick up a maximum of three new dramas for next season which could leave room for both LUX and OTH to be renewed. A Nikita pickup is a sure thing with Betwixt and Hellcats looking good for the other two spots.
I’m dying for news on One Tree Hill! Please tell us, will it survive? Or will the CW pick up Life Unexpected instead?
Still no decisions yet, but they both could come back—possibly with shortened seasons, so keep the faith! We’ll find out May 20. As for OTH, I’ll be (hopefully) talking to James Lafferty and/or Rob Buckley this week, so please email me any Q’s you have or send them via twitter @kristinalert.
One Tree Hill star Sophia Bush has been cast as the lead in a new ABC comedy. While they gave the usual “Pilot is in second place to One Tree Hill” remark lets face it when was the last time a main cast member of a in-danger show ever done a pilot without it being cancelled in the end?
The Hollywood Reporter also confirmed that of Life Unexpected and One Tree Hill only one is expected to survive

The CW president Dawn Ostroff has admitted that she is encouraged by the success of One Tree Hill.
In an interview with The Hollywood Reporter, Ostroff gave hope to Tree Hill fans about the possibility of an eighth season renewal.
“We’re encouraged. We think [creator] Mark Schwahn has done a great job with the show. The fans are the most loyal and dedicated I think I’ve ever seen. They have some 1.6 million fans on Facebook.”
She added: “Too early too tell [about a renewal], but creatively we feel the show is in a really good place.”
Asked whether One Tree Hill will be competing with Life Unexpected for a slot in the 2010-11 schedule, Ostroff would neither confirm nor deny.
According to our contacts at the CW things are looking much darker for Life Unexpected which has gone from 50/50 to highly unlikely to return. This does not however mean that things are much brighter for One Tree Hill which is still very much on the bubble – though it is more likely to be renewed than LUX at this point despite being so much more expensive. Due to it’s costs it is also unlikely to move to SOAPNET if the CW were to cancel it. The problem at the CW is with all their renewals they only plan on picking up 3 to 4 of HMS, BETWIXT, Nikita, Nomads,Untitled horse farm drama, Hellcats, One Tree Hill and Melrose Place (which is considered pretty much dead at this point). The success of High Society could also make things even more competitive. At this point don’t be surprised if come May, the CW doesn’t renew anything else and just picks up 3 to 4 pilots.
The CW will put the first 10 minutes of its new drama “Life Unexpected” online a week before its linear debut.
Starting Jan. 11, the network is putting an extended preview across all official CW fan pages. The approach marks the first time that Facebook has hosted a screening across multiple pages, with “Unexpected” available to the network’s 5.4 million Facebook fans. The move allows CW to directly target its most dedicated viewers online. The network is partnering with video provider Ustream for the effort. Fans who catch the “Unexpected” preview during the first 24 hours will be able to leave comments as they watch.
“Unexpected” is the story of a 15-year-old foster child who moves back in with her biological parents. The series debuts on the CW on Monday, Jan. 18.
