Tomorrow” and “100”  hail from Warner Bros. TV. ‘Tomorrow People” is based on a 1970s U.K. series about a group of young people who rep the next stage in human evolution (wait, don’t all teenagers think that?). “The 100” is set nearly 100 years in the future after a nuclear disaster has destroyed civilization.

Greg Berlanti’s prolific banner is behind “Tomorrow People,” penned by Philip J. Klemmer Jr. “The 100” was penned by Jason Rothenberg and hails from Alloy Entertainment.

Reign” revolves around the youthful years of “Mary Queen of Scotts.” “Star-Crossed” (fka “Oxygen”) revolves around humanoid aliens trying to integrate into high school (wait, don’t all teenagers feel that way?). Both are from CBS TV Studios.

CW bubble shows “Nikita” and “The Carrie Diaries” have also been renewed by the net.

“The Carrie Diaries,” based on the book series by “Sex and the City” scribe Candace Bushnell, is a prequel to HBO’s “SATC” and stars AnnaSophia Robb as a young Carrie Bradshaw. Hourlong show has been renewed for a second season after averaging 1.5 million viewers in its frosh run, with DVR taken into account.

Spy drama “Nikita” will receive a fourth season with its renewal. The Maggie Q-starrer draws around 1.4 million total viewers with DVR, and has been on the net since 2010.

Showrunner Craig Silverstein took to Twitter after the renewal announcement, stating that season four will be truncated, while also hinting that this renewal marks the final run of “Nikita.”

The CW does not have comment on Silverstein’s tweet as of this afternoon.
