The CW picks up 'Arrow' and 'The Carrie Diaries' alongside 'Cult' and more
According to Deadline, the five new dramas officially got the word on Friday, May 11. "The Carrie Diaries" is a prequel of "Sex and the City," with Anna-Sophia Robb starring in the Carrie Bradshaw role. "Arrow" follows the comic book hero Green Arrow, while you can probably guess what "Beauty and the Beast" is about. "Cult" stars Matt Davis ("The Vampire Diaries") as a former journalist investigating -- you guessed it -- a cult, and "First Cut" is a medical drama staring Mamie Gummer.
"Nikita" and "Hart of Dixie" have both been renewed, while unfortunately the network's other freshman shows "Ringer" and "The Secret Circle" didn't make it to Season 2.
