The CW renews ‘Nikita’!


The Hollywood Reporter has reported that The CW has renewed Nikita for another season. Maggie Q (Tori) plays the main character in the show Nikita Mears.

One season shy of the 88-episode mark needed for syndication, the Maggie Q starrer from Warner Bros. Television has a small but vocal base of dedicated fans to the tune of 1.1 million viewers on Fridays and 0.3 in the adults 18-49 metric. As with several other of the CW’s series, Nikita has a strong afterlife on Hulu, where it continues to bring in new eyeballs for the youth-skewing network. The series will continue on for a fourth season. Noted showrunner Craig Silverstein on Twitter after the news broke Thursday: “Nikita will return but not for a full season. We can promise an incredible finish though!”

Synopsis of the show:

The story is about two assassins for a top-secret government organization called Division. One of the assassins goes rogue, and a second assassin is training to replace the old one. Maggie Q stars as Nikita, who tries to take down the division with her ally, a mole inside the Division, Alex, played by Lyndsy Fonseca. Nikita was trained by Michael, played by Shane West, who sees the new recruits of the Division as a family to him.

Maggie Q will be playing Tori in the highly anticipated Divergent film.
