This is my all time favourite show so disappointed its getting cancelled after 4 seasons. I think the problem was people can’t dip in and out because the storyline is more complex. Love maggie q.

Finish it out right. It’s well written. I think it’s been sending a real look past the characters and see how much it’s probably based on stuff really happening. Makes you wonder who is wanting it and who doesnt

I love this show. It’s gotten better with each additional season. The relationships have shown more depth and Nikita has revealed more or her humanity.

I’m sad to see it will return for an abbreviated season next fall.

After this season finale…PLEASE let this show be cancelled. It has long been on an inexorable slide from boring to asinine, and this last episode was abysmal. Like the Titanic, let it sink and stay sunk.

Season 4 needs at least 13 episodes to wrap the storyline up. Alan K and Kevin are trolls. This is a great show that i need closure on. This is my favorite show that is still on the air and it should stay that way. For better ratings move it to another night. Friday at 8pm was never a good time to get high ratings…

The storyline really slow, boring and lame, there is alot of others shows out there better than this one. Vote for cancel it.

I love the show Nikita with Maggie Q! Why won’t you consider a different time slot on a different day? This show is exciting with dangerous beautiful woman as spies with several hunky men for the woman to see. The story line sometimes needs improvement maybe a faster pace to resolve situations but please do not cancel it. Work on it more!

Please bring nikita on for a 4th season and make it a full season. Nikita is one of my favorite shows, its also the best entertainment show on T V. Don’t give up on her.
