Nikita is one of those shows that grew on me so much during its first season that I’m dying to know what happens when the show returns in two weeks. The spoilers coming out of Comic-Con (read them here) only made me even more anxious to see season 2. The show will basically be rebooting itself next season. There’s new alliances, new problems and new locations for the characters to explore.
When we last saw Nikita, the title character and her new boyfriend, Michael, had driven off into the sunset. Well, no, that’s not true. They’re actually escaping a government organization intent on killing them and ensuring they don’t release these secrets store on a little black box. So, it’s not very romantic, but at least they’re together! When the show returns, Nikita and Michael will be looking to right the wrongs Division committed. Alex, meanwhile, has decided to team up with Amanda (now in charge of Division), provided Amanda agrees to help her find the man who ordered the hit on her father. But Alex has a lot to deal with between reliving old childhood ghosts and hunting down the woman (Nikita) who mentored her.
Nikita returns for its second season on Friday, September 23 (yes, it’s moved to Fridays now), at 8:00 p.m. on The CW. You can also view a cool trailer for the new season here.
