October 4, 2013 (Burbank, CA)— NIKITA will wrap up her mission with a final six-episode run beginning Friday, November 22, 9:00-10:00 pm ET on The CW, airing over six straight weeks.

Framed for assassinating the President at the end of last season, Nikita (Maggie Q) finds herself at the beginning of season four alone and on the run, hunted as the most wanted woman in the world.  But when she follows up a lead that could clear her name, Nikita unexpectedly finds herself reunited with her old team.  Forced to work together again, Nikita and her allies have to get past their emotional wounds in order to take down their nemesis, Amanda (Melinda Clarke).  In the process, they discover that the plot to frame Nikita is actually part of a much larger conspiracy, one that could lead to global catastrophe.

NIKITA is from Sesfonstein Productions, Inc. and Wonderland Sound and Vision in association with Warner Bros. Television, with executive producers Craig Silverstein (“Bones,” “Standoff”), David Levinson (“The Commish”), McG (“Supernatural,” “Chuck,” “The O.C.,” “Charlie’s Angels” movies), Peter Johnson (“Supernatural,” “Chuck”), Danny Cannon (“CSI: Crime Scene Investigation,” “Dark Blue”) and Carlos Coto (“Heroes,” “24”).

  • Lily

    Thank you CW for giving us a proper closure.

  • DuMont

    I do hope that ‘Nikita’ is able to hold her lead-in from ‘The Carrie Diaries’.

  • AllOfHerTw!st

    These 6 final epsisodes will give them the 73 they need for, wait, what?

  • John A

    6 episodes is so pathetic. Why did CW even bother renewing it?

  • John A

    Mini series or limited series would be better. 6 episodes isnt a season.

  • JJA

    Still a long time to wait, but these episodes should be EXCELENT!!

  • UK Watcher

    @John A It is in the UK and on channels like HBO and Showtime, they are usually 10 – 12 :)

  • CrimTV

    @UK Watcher

    I am from the UK and the length of some UK series is pathetic, some shows have a grand total of 3 episodes per season. It’s awful. American TV is soooo soooo sooo much better!

  • Percysowner

    The CW renewed it to give fans a chance for real closure. I really appreciate that a long running show gets that. It makes me more likely to try out series on the CW because there is a better chance that they will get a wrapped up ending.

  • Zach

    How low will the ratings go airing the finale two days after Christmas. .1 for an original airing?

  • HV

    The CW took the advice of many of the commenters on TV by the Numbers.
    I wonder how miserably low its ratings will go.

  • HV

    I don’t watch this show, but your comment seems very rude.

  • Jon

    The CW were to affraid to see how good it would do on a regular weekday. If it had done good the CW would look like the morons they are lol.

  • John A

    When does Top Model end? Surely well before Nov 22nd? Airing it at christmas time is stupid.

  • John A

    It aired behind TVD and did badly.

  • david

    Good to see it have a date finally but, the last episode will air in between Christmas and new years. Thats a bad idea.

  • HV

    @John A
    Most likely November 15th, it seems.

  • Jon

    @John A

    Look the numbers up it did not do bad after TVD. It did better than TSC and BatB.

  • JJA

    We Nikita fans are used to the trolls by now, and we don’t really care.

    How many good shows have been canceled due to bad ratings? Lucky for us, Nikita got a full 73 episode run AND closure.

    Also, the CW clearly doesn’t care about Nikita’s ratings at this point. This is a burn-off schedule. They could have just as easily placed it in another slot, but they probably need those slots to promote their new shows (good luck with “The Originals” by the way).

    I bet the CW is banking on new fans discovering the show AFTER its run (thanks to overseas syndication and online streaming), so the 6 new episodes are just to give it closure. The CW probably things people would be LESS likely to start watching Nikita (which is highly-serialized) had it been abruptly canceled.

    Regardless, Nikita will go down in history as a well made Cult TV show with a small but loyal following, AND new fans will discover it online in the years to come.
