Can you believe it's been 10 years since Nikita first aired?! (10 years, 4 months, 17 days to be exact.)
Why in the world did Nikita end?
When Nikita came to an end after 4 years in December 2013, million viewers tuned in to say goodbye to Nikita Mears (Maggie Q). And since then, they have been itching for a reunion.
Would a Nikita reunion disappoint people?
Nikita aired from 2010-2013 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 Maggie Q said she's not sure if Nikita would work today. “I don't want to see old Nikita Mears,” she told a journalist (Maggie Q turned 41 in May). “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, Melinda Clarke (who played Amanda) said she 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 Aaron Stanford (who played Seymour Birkhoff) 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.”
On the subject of whether there could be a Nikita film, Shane West stated : “I think it's a bit of a case of ‘the book is better than the movie’.”
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?
