Can you believe it's been 22 years since Nikita first aired?! (22 years, 2 months, 10 days to be exact.)
Why in the world did Nikita end?
Would a Nikita reunion disappoint people?
Nikita aired from 1997-2001 and is considered one of the most influential TV shows ever on pop culture. Although no original episodes have been shot since, it has remained a regular feature on many station's schedules. But Wilson said she's not sure if Nikita would work today. “I don't want to see old Nikita,” she told a journalist (Wilson turned 48 in November). “Everyone’s going to have different vision of what the character is like, so to have that materialize is going to disappoint most people,” she added.
Still hoping for a Nikita movie?
In a recent interview, Roy Dupuis said he can't imagine a Nikita reunion hitting the big screen. “I'd rather people go, ‘Oh, please! Please!’ than ‘I can't believe you did that. It was horrible.’”
Co-star Peta Wilson has also previously explained, “It would be terrible to do something and have it not be good,”. “It was so terrific ... If we did a Nikita movie and it sucked, then it would, you know, blemish it.”
What about a Nikita reboot?
Recasting Nikita for a modern reboot. Hollywood is known for remaking remakes of films or tv series and the studios might think it would be great to bring the story back with a new set of characters.
Be it in the form of a Nikita reunion, a Nikita movie, or a Nikita reboot, if you had to start filming today, who would you cast in what role?
