  • Awesome! Best show on TV right now. I tried Ringer but it just got horribly ridiculous half way through the season. I heard Hart of Dixie has been renewed as well. Yay!

  • I’M WICKED HAPPY ABOUT NIKITA. Been looking online like every day waiting on Nikita news. I had a bad feeling about it, but really glad I was wrong. Kinda upset about The Secret Circle going to be another show that ends its series with a season finale cliffhanger not series, I hate those. Hart Of Dixie also surprised but happy about that renewel. The CW is my favorite channel, but most definately under rated to many people think It’s for teenage girls and not shows that are legit.

  • If any show on the CW deserved to be renewed, it was Nikita. The show has been phenomenal this season. Let’s go season 3!

    I was literally going to be sad for 2 hours if the show wasn’t going to be renewed especially with all the deathly predictions. Thank you, CW!

    Now please re-pair The Vampire Diaries with Nikita to make the most fast-paced 2 hours of television!

  • I was so happy when i read the news. Nikita sure deserves another season, and more if possible. All the other people who don’t watch this outstanding show check it out over the summer, you wont regret it. Thank you CW for renewing Nikita you have made a lot of people very happy.

  • Thank you, CW, thank you, for giving the third season to the best spy show since the days of Alias! You will not regret it! :) I feel sorry for Ringer, it was a very good show. They should have cancel the boring Hart of Dixie and renew Ringer.

  • In shock! I’ve been watching this season the past few months enjoying what was left as I thought that was it. This is by far the best news of the week for me!

  • This is the BEST news ever! thank you for giving a season 3 for NIKITA! CW, you made a right decision on this.

  • Yes! Very pleased that ‘Nikita’ is being renewed for a 3rd season. It’s one of the best shows around & is greatly underrated, especially by CW. The whole cast are great, but Maggie Q is definitely the best part of the whole show. Way to go guys, you got renewed! Keep up the great work. CW might not appreciate ‘Nikita’, but your viewers do.

  • Thank God! Nikita is still on the move for Season 3. I can’t wait already as well as with Vampire Diaries Season 4. Go! Go! go!

  • YES YES YES!!!!!! Wonderful news! Finally, there is some justice in the TV world. An excellent, intelligent, mature show with quality and depth gets renewed, not only the shallow teenage crap that somehow manages better ratings (and other permeats the CW’s schedule).

    I hope it’s a full season pick-up. Also, that the CW promotes the show better next year because it could really succeed if it was more well-known. This show has something for everyone with exciting fast-paced storylines, exhilirating action, crazy twists, a ton of heart, (mature and well-written) romance, complex characters, top-notch acting, and incredible production values considering the tight budget. Congratulations to the Nikita cast and crew – this couldn’t be more well-deserved.

  • Im still very happy about Nikita being renewed. The fans did a lot trying to save it. From now on I won’t read anything Nikita related on tvbythenumbers they are the biggest Nikita haters. Just on Thursday they said Nikita was 99% dead and they were so wrong!! On the other hand tvline has always been supportive of Nikita and me as a fan thank you and they were right when they updated Nikita’s status to a safe bet!!! THAnk you CW for giving us more Nikita

  • Wow, of all the renewals I’ve heard or this makes me the happiest. This is the best show on this network since this garbage heap started sailing. Couldn’t have happened to a better cast. Now, if Maggie, Lyndsey, Melinda, or Xander could just get their just deserved Emmy nominations for their brilliant performances this year it would be a perfect storm.

  • YES. I thought Nikita would be a goner too but I’m soooo happy. It’s easily my favourite show, not just on the CW, but on all the networks so far!

  • Great to watch more nikita!!!
    In holland the show is verry popular.!
    Greetings to you all.

  • Awesome!!! Nikita is THE best show on the CW. It would be nice to see a network get behind a class act show like this, and give it a chance to continue to grow. For too many years now i’ve seen shows that do NOT deserve to be on tv hang and fester for years, and get plastered all over syndication. Nikita is a show that deserves to be on for many years to come. Rock on!!!

  • I’m writing from Ireland where I see Nikita on Sky Living probably much later than America.
    I love the programme and I’m also glad that it’s going into a 3rd season.
    Ringer was only shown on one of our Irish stations but not on a UK station, all of which we can recieve in Ireland. I liked it but have now been told by Amazon that it has never been released on DVD and probably never will. This annoys me as I would like to have it on DVD and I’m wondering why it’s not being issued.
