The third season of The CW’s drama series Nikita will receive its UK premiere on Sky Living on Friday August 9th at 9pm, it has been announced.
Based on the film of the same name and developed for television by Craig Silverstein, Nikita follows the eponymous character who, three years after escaping from a secret spy agency known as Division, comes out of hiding to seek revenge and bring the organisation down. The drama series, which was recently renewed for a fourth and final season, stars Maggie Q, Lyndsy Fonseca, Shane West, Aaron Stanford, Melinda Clarke, Devon Sawa and Noah Bean.
In the opening episode of the show’s third season, titled 3.0, Ryan takes charge of Division with Nikita by his side. Their first mission under the new regime is to bring in “The Dirty Thirty,” the rogue agents who failed to respond to the Division recall after Percy was killed. Unfortunately, their first mission doesn’t go as planned and Michael is arrested, forcing Nikita to change gears and hatch an escape plan for him. Alex reprises her alter ego, the spoiled Russian princess Alexandra Udinov, in a very unique way as part of the plan to spring Michael. Meanwhile, Birkhoff struggles to maintain a working relationship with Sonya, despite his growing attraction to her.
