The CW confirmed what fans already pretty much already figured out: That the fourth season will be the last for Nikita.
The first clue was that the network only ordered six episodes. The second was a tweet by showrunner Craig Silverstein last week promising an “incredible finish.” The third was, frankly, that Nikita‘s ratings were so low it was tough to imagine an open-ended scenario.
Now today with it’s fall schedule announcement, The CW announced Nikita “wraps up her mission” next season. Credit The CW for continuing to give it’s longer-running titles a chance to have a satisfying ending. Still, fans will have to wait awhile to see how it all ends — Nikita won’t return until sometime in midseason.
