The CW renewed Nikita for another season, but that's followed by bittersweet news: that this would be the show's final season, and there would only be six episodes to end with a bang.
Maggie Q, the star of 'Nikita', has been present at the CW upfronts and spoke about the ending of the show. She talks about going into the final six episodes, saying, "Actually, creatively, I’m really excited. Because in a final season, banging out six episodes… You know how big our episodes are. We’re going to make these even bigger, because there’s only six. So we want to go out movie-style, you know what I mean? Do six movies. You know where we ended it. This season, Season 4, it has to be fast-paced, right? She’s out there."
She does add that while it's creatively fulfilling to have the final six episodes, her heart is 'breaking' because she loves her crew and will miss them. She explains, "Six [episodes] hurt my heart a little, just because I’m going to miss my crew so much. I’m going to have to say goodbye to them in four months, which I didn’t expect to be so quick. But that’s it. Creatively, I’m totally fulfilled. But personally, my heart’s broken because I love my crew so much, and I don’t know when I’ll see them again."
The fourth and final season of the show will start airing in the fall, along with some of the CW staples such as 'The Vampire Diaries' and 'Arrow' alongside new shows such as 'The Originals', 'Star-Crossed', 'The 100', and 'Reign'. In addition to Maggie Q, 'Nikita' also stars Lyndsy Fonseca, Shane West, Aaron Stanford, Melinda Clarke, and Lyndie Greenwood.
