nikita-maggie-q-crossbow-nikita-renewed-season-3 "Nikita" fans, your wish has come true. The show has just been renewed by the CW for a third season. This news comes on the heels of five new pickups including "Beauty and the Beast" starring Kristin Kreuk.

The show was a bit lagging in the ratings, but fans of "Nikita" have been extremely vocal about wanting the show to return. As we've seen with "Community" and "Fringe," this actually can make a big difference. The show has been putting out some stunning episodes this season and according to star Maggie Q, the big finale is going to be amazing.

Are you guys excited to hear the news? Did you expect it? Let us know your thoughts below. "Nikita" airs on the CW on Friday nights. May 11 is the episode "Crossbow." The week following is now the season, not series finale.
