Section One, a clandestine anti-terrorist organization, fakes the death of a jailed, convicted murderer and, believing her twin assets of beauty and ability to kill will make her a valuable new operative, trains her in the fighting skills necessary to succeed in her new job. The new operative, code-named 'Josephine', proves to be somewhat less ruthless than planned, however, as she had been falsely convicted and never murdered anyone.Written by
The show ran five seasons. The season number determined the number of words in an episodes title (i.e., all third season episodes had three words in their title). See more »

Originally broadcast in Canada as "Nikita". Rebroadcasts in the US make use of the film title "La Femma Nikita." In 2001, new episodes were broadcast as "Nikita" while reruns were shown as "La Femme Nikita." See more »
I totally disagree with the first comment. The TV series "La Femme Nikita" took the premise from the original French movie and went in a different direction. It had a new look, feel, and style from what most audiences were used to - and the cast, writers, and crew did a great job.
My favorite is the 1st season. I think the storyline went off the rails after the 3rd season (Michael with a wife and kid), but I still tuned in every week! The interest in LFN the series was global - many Web sites were created and dedicated to the show's characters and actors who portrayed them. I hadn't seen such enthusiasm for a TV show in a long time, and it was great.
It was my favorite show of the 90's, that's for sure, and the show has definitely made an impact on other TV series and even movies.
