We were more excited than annoyed when Syfy announced its intent to reboot classic Terry Gilliam-Bruce Willis timebender '12 Monkeys' as a TV series, even moreso now that casting has begun. 'Nikita' and 'X-Men' franchise star Aaron Stanford will take the role once played by Bruce Willis in the big-screen adaptation, while another will fill Madeline Stowe's role, and producers have been chosen as well.
For all the ways we envisioned 'Nikita' would carry out its final six episodes in returning for a shortened fourth season, we can safely say this wasn't among them. Infamous Brat Pack star Judd Nelson has joined season 4 of the CW spy thriller for a major undercover arc, but what secrets does he hold from the Division team?
Though fans of The CW spy thriller 'Nikita' were dismayed to learn that the network ultimately decided to bring the series to a close, hope was again raised that 'Nikita' would be granted an additional six hours to wrap up its story. Rumors flew at Comic-Con 2013 that the six remaining episodes would take the form of three feature-length movies, though now CW president Mark Pedowitz has stepped up to clarify the format of the final season.
Comic-Con 2013 is nearly upon us, as July 17-21 will once again see legions of pop culture fanatics descend on San Diego to celebrate their favorite properties and we’ll be on hand once again to bring you all of the TV and Movie coverage straight from San Diego! From 'The Walking Dead' season 4 to 'Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.' and 'Game of Thrones,' we've got your complete Comic-Con TV panel schedule to check out from this year's event.
Look out, Comic-Con 2013! Warner Bros. television has officially thrown its hat into the ring with a whopping 17 panels for the international pop culture event, among them fan-favorites like 'Supernatural,' 'The Big Bang Theory,' 'The Following,' and the final 'Nikita' appearance, with new panels for 'Beware the Batman' and more filling out the ranks. So when can fans fight for a sneak peek at their favorite shows' new offerings?
After months spent in limbo, fans of The CW's 'Nikita' were overjoyed to learn yesterday that their favorite division spies would indeed return for a fourth season, along with a second season of 'Sex and the City' prequel 'The Carrie Diaries." The CW won't release its full episode order and schedule until next week, but for how many episodes can we expect 'Nikita' back? And will it prove the final season?
And the hits keep on coming! Shortly after announcing their multiple pickups, and long after many of their existing CW counterparts have been renewed, both 'Nikita' and 'The Carrie Diaries' have been picked up for additional seasons. 'Nikita' will return for a shortened fourth outing, while 'The Carrie Diaries' will continue its 'Sex and the City' buildup into a second season, so get the latest on both renewals inside!
It will still be a few weeks yet before the major broadcast networks announce their official plans for renewals and cancellations, though a few networks have already made decisions on their more assured properties. The CW will soon decide the fate of perpetual bubble series 'Nikita,' but early word has broken that the network will likely renew that Maggie Q-fronted spy drama, if only for a shortened season to wrap up the narrative. Find out how long 'Nikita' could return for next season inside!
Earlier today, news broke that NBC could be next in line to issue early renewals to the series of its current line-up, with plenty of shows on the bubble for cancellation. CBS and FOX have already issued mayor renewals, along with The CW's pickups for 'Arrow,' 'The Vampire Diaries' and 'Supernatural,' but what other CW series are on the chopping block? And which might get truncated final season orders bolstered by online sales?
