In revealing its 2013-2014 schedule this morning, The CW also confirmed what has been suspected for the past few weeks:
Nikita will conclude its run with an especially abbreviated fourth season. It will not premiere until early 2014 and it will be comprised of six episodes.
Look for more information to come out later today at the network's Upfront presentation, but it has announced that Maggie Q and company will “wrap up" their final "mission” at midseason.
And let's give the network credit for such a move. It clearly recognizes passionate fan base and, despite dismal ratings, is giving the series a chance to pen a proper ending. Bravo!
