“In Nikita season 3, I would hope that after season 2 there would be not demons that are taken care of, but demons that at least are recognized.” — a quote from Nikita star Maggie Q. herself in an interview from a blog in Zap2It about Nikita season 3.
The CW’s jampacked action series received a “safe bet” prediction from TV Line based on its January 2012 Renewal Scorecard. However, based on my further research, the show has been vacillating from “low” to “steady” the last four months — which rationally explains the toss up prediction of TV by the numbers on its April 17th article. “Toss up” means that there’s a 50-50 chance that the show will be on the chopping block or if lucky, renewed for season 3.
Nielsen charted a steady rating with 1.32 million viewers (matching its series low demo).
Although the ratings of the show is not up to par, fans feel otherwise. Garnering from Nikita’s fan-base worldwide, only a cynic would say that the show doesn’t deserve a chance (atleast for another season).
Some supporters even declared that Nikita is one of CW’s worth-watching entertainment together with Vampire Diaries in contrary to Sarah Michelle Gellar’s Ringer — which they considered “dull”. But why just the “steady” ratings? Some fans noted that the timeslot is actually the one responsible for the show’s insufficient number of viewers, making them turn on the very reliable internet to tune in into their favorite CW action-drama.
That’s all we have for now, hopefully more news to come this May. To continue receiving updates about Nikita’s possible renewal for season 3, feel free to check the site regularly.
