Of all her incarnations (La Femme Nikita, The Point of No Return, Peta Wilson's syndicated series), Craig Silverstein's take on the addict-turned-assassin-turned-hero has been the most complex, fascinating and engrossing version to ever kick her way out of Hollywood. But in six weeks, her harrowing journey will come to an end as The CW's Nikita begins airing its 6 episode final season tonight.
To find out what awaits fans in these six episodes -- or three 2-hour mini-movies, as the cast prefers to think of them -- ETonline caught up with series star Maggie Q, who has infused her small screen super spy with more heart, brains and guts than one show should be able to handle. In addition to learning about Nikita's return to her team, I got the scoop on Michael's reaction to her return and the long-awaited showdown with Amanda!

Add Bob Cochran to the list of high-profile 24 co-creators returning to the Fox franchise’s upcoming event-series reboot. The Emmy-winning executive producer/showrunner Cochran will serve as executive producer of 24: Live Another Day. Cochran, whose credits also include co-creating the La Femme Nikita television series, most recently wrote the Starz pilot Pinkerton, based on the famous 19th century detective, Alan Pinkerton. He is repped by Apa and Gendler & Kelly’s Michael Gendler. Fox in May announced Kiefer Sutherland has closed a deal for the event series at its upfront presentation in New York City.

It’s one of two event series the network unveiled at its upfront confab — the other being M. Night Shyamalan »

It's really starting to sound like Shailene Woodley has been replaced as Mary Jane Watson in The Amazing Spider-Man 3. It broke yesterday that the character was being cut out of The Amazing Spider-Man 2, and that the actress would instead make her debut as Peter Parker's future wife in the third film, set for 2016.

Though, with its 2016 release date already set in stone, its unclear exactly when this next chapter in the saga of Peter Parker and the search for his parents will begin production, or if it will even conflict with a possible Divergent 2.
Its been heavily speculated that Shailene Woodley was actually dropped from »

To preview the next two episodes, which are directed by "La Femme Nikita" veterans Jon Cassar ("Reunion," March 8) and Brad Turner ("The Life We've Chosen," March 15), HuffPost TV caught up with showrunner Craig Silverstein to discuss what's ahead for Team Nikita, how Amanda's grand plan will affect them all and how he's feeling about the show earning a Season 4 renewal.
What can you preview about tonight's "Reunion"?
