What do you think? Do you still like the Nikita TV series? Do you think it should be cancelled or renewed for a fourth season?

Come on CW renew Nikita for a full 4th season so you and WB can make tons of cash on this show in stripped syndication deals. Its HUGE in many countries all over the world

Not to mention NONE of CW shows can do better than Nikita does on a friday when these other shows only get 0.4-0.6 on the high level weekdays and they are also YOUNGER shows than Nikita and would have way more episodes than Nikita to get to syndication level.

This last episode was amazing. Up until now I wished that Amanda had been killed instead of Percy at the end of last season because something about him just made a better villain. However, the best villains are the ones that you can understand why they went down the path they did and you feel a sorry for them.

Nikita should be renewed ! Not only because its a great show with great actors/actress. Nikita deserves to be renewed. Each episode is unique and amazing and you can see on screen how hard and how much thought is put in !♡ #teamnikita

This shouldnt even be a question just like previous comments have mentioned i am also a big fan of Scandal and thought i was hooked till i watched Nikita watched all of season 1 and 2 in less than a week i was tempted to miss work to finish it its like a good movie that never ends. Even though the show is full of action it doesnt compromise on the story line and character deelopement. Everything about this show is great since when do we decide a shows staying power by ratings only. Most shows arent veiwd in real time anymore like stated previously they are viewd through hulu and netflix and dvr i even went as far to pirchase the seasons on Itunes. This show is awesome and with writing like this it can go out for way more than 4 seasons keep Nikita.

NIKITA ALL THE WAY!!!! PLEASE, PLEASE, PLEASE! I am really not understanding why the rating are so low on this show, because once you watch it there no way not to love it. I watched season 1 &2 on Netflix. I could not sleep the minute I wake up i had to continue watching it. I thought i was addicted to scandal and revenge… NIKITA is ten times better… I just think people need to hear more about it because This is the best show on tv ever!!! PLease, renew for season 4 otherwise CW could kiss me goodbye!!!

I enjoy Nakita so much. I began watching on Netflix and from episode 1 I was hooked. I am usually not a huge fan of these sort of television programs. BUT, this cast is so right on and they all bounce off each other and it works. I say they need to renew Nakita. Nakita needs more tv air space…visibility/commercial spot, etc. Also, I watch Revenge, but Nakita has won me over 1000 to the power of 1000. :)

I remember last year when all of the networks had their upfronts. They were announcing which shows would be renewed and which ones would be cancelled. I was on twitter waiting for the news on Nikita and was beyond thrilled it was renewed. I had already had my heart ripped out by the CW for cancelling Ringer and The Secret Circle. So Nikita getting renewed made it a little better. After looking at the ratings for this season I would be VERY MAD if it were cancelled, just bc it has shown an increase in viewers from wk to wk. I feel like it is doing a Damn good job for airing in the slaughter slot(Friday). So plz CW take that into consideration and give us another season. Plz plz plz. I’ve been a avid fan since day 1, season 1, episode 1 and will continue to be. It’s my 2nd fav show. Losing out to Revenge of course. But I love them both:)

When the CW announced nikita I was hating hard on the show. I was happy that it did well because of Lindsay she played Colleen on young and restless. When nikita was added on Netflix I decided to watch it. And first episode I was hook I love it I watch the first season in 3 days I become a Nitika fan. I love the show it is was edgy and fun I love the actors on the show. Fridays night will not be the same without the Nikita I hope the cw does the right thing and renew it we need a fourth season. I love Nikita it a kickass show

I’ve seen a lot of ppl hate on Nikita on Twitter and Facebook. Especially when it comes to another CW show being cancelled. They say things like, it has higher ratings than Nikita so cancel it instead, or Nikita sick it should be cancelled, renew blab blab blab instead. Anyhow, my point is, they were like you. If they’d just watch Nikita they’d like it. It’s a really good show. And I’m glad you gave it a chance too:)

I personally love Nikita and love Maggie Q. I personally think they should renew it for a season 4 because I LOVEEE it and also, two of their stars are going to be in big movies this summer and next, with Lyndsey Fonseca in Kick-Ass 2 and Maggie Q next March’s latest YA big screen adaption of Divergent (which I may only go to see because of Maggie Q. Divergent as a book SUCKED.) So a little more recognition right there.
