It was announced yesterday [Friday] that The CW had opted not to renew the witchy drama. The series was adapted from the novels by L.J Smith by Kevin Williamson who also adapted The Vampire Diaries for The CW as well. The two shows were paired together on Thursday evenings in a supernatural block.
The Secret Circle was widely expected to be renewed by The CW for a second season as it had solid ratings throughout its run – though admittedly they did drop for the last few episodes. To the surprise of some though The CW axed The Secret Circle and renewed Nikita and Gossip Girl instead.
Well fans of The Secret Circle haven’t taken the cancellation lying down and have launched a campaign to save it. So far the petition has over 5000 signatures and you can sign it yourself by clicking here >>.
