Nikita, starring Maggie Q, has been given a third season after The CW opted to renew the drama. It’s average ratings had prompted many to view Nikita as a likely candidate for the axe. In fact ATV Today predicted Nikita would fall victim to the axe but it seems The CW has proved us and others wrong.
For the past few weeks though the chances of Nikita’s renewals were talked up because of its “strong international sales” which may very well have swung it for the broadcaster.
Nikita’s renewal comes after The CW announced it was picking up five new dramas.
