Bender is giving up Saturday detention for the spy life: Brat Pack favorite Judd Nelson has just been cast in a major role for "Nikita's" final season, TVLine reports. 

"The Breakfast Club" alum is joining The CW's spy drama for the upcoming Season 4 as a deep-cover operative working for the bad guys -- a.k.a. Amanda (Melinda Clarke) and The Shop's Mr. Jones.

Nelson's character is embroiled in a devious worldwide plot, and the only ones who can stop it from coming to fruition are the now-headquarters-less Division. Of course, that's not the best news since they are currently searching for their runaway leader, Nikita (Maggie Q). 

As if that wasn't enough of a pivotal role for Nelson, his character also has a secret that will "alter the very fabric of the Nikitaverse." That doesn't sound too good for our favorite assassins-turned-good-guys.

The final six-episode season of "Nikita" has yet to get a premiere date, but is expected to air sometime in mid-November.
