One of the best seasons of Nikita so far
18 May 2017 | by See all my reviews

If I had known Nikita would get a spin off back in Early 2014 I wouldn't have gone through my major withdrawal.

With that being said, this show is epic. I'll be forever thankful for getting Maggie Q as a secret agent taking down a shadow organization.

Can't wait for Season 2!
