The CW is going to be very full next season. The network previously renewed four shows for next season and just picked up five new ones, now comes news that three more shows have been renewed while two have been axed.

Not all titles featured on BuddyTV are available through Amazon Prime.

Gossip Girl was renewed for a sixth and final season, though it will only run for 10 or 11 episodes. Freshman drama Hart of Dixie is the only freshman show to get a second seasons while Nikita was renewed for season 3. Meanwhile, Ringer and The Secret Circle were both canceled, making them the sole scripted casualties of the CW's current season (not counting One Tree Hill).

The renewals for these three shows follow pick-ups for The Vampire Diaries, Supernatural, 90210 and America's Next Top Model. Along with the five new shows on tap, that's 12 shows to fill 10 hours of programming, so some will inevitably be pushed to mid-season.

Hart of Dixie started slowly, but stayed surprisingly strong throughout its freshman year (and will make a good partner for the network's new medical drama, First Cut). Ringer's cancellation is not a big surprise as the show had incredibly low ratings. The Secret Circle had decent ratings after The Vampire Diaries, but never seemed to catch on.

The CW will unveil its complete 2012-2013 lineup next week.
