Some say the CW was in a giving mood — as they decided to keep Nikita and One Tree Hill. Others, however, may disagree, as they decided to ax Hellcats after just one season, leaving fans with little to cheer about.
The cheerleader comedy drama apparently lacked the school spirit needed to keep it on the air, as it averaged less than two million viewers per episode.
Smallville star Tom Welling served as executive producer on the show.
“There’s such an energy from the cast and from [series creator] Kevin Murphy,” Welling said. “When I go [on set], I just feel so proud.”
In fact, before he learned of his show’s fate, Welling said that renewing Hellcats would be “the best idea in the world.”
“They don’t necessarily tell you before they pick you up, but as of right now, everything is looking as if it’s going to go another season, which is great,” Welling told Zap2it. “That show, to me, is so special.”
