Nikita Preview: Will You Watch?

at . Comments

The CW is premiering two new shows this fall.

The first stars Aly Michalka and Ashley Tisdale as college cheerleaders. Does Hellcats looks DVR worthy? Check out a clip from it NOW.

The second, though, is clearly the one the network is placing more hope in: Nikita has landed a prime spot of television real state: it will air at 9 p.m. on Thursday nights, immediately following The CW's most-watched show, The Vampire Diaries.

The origian of Nikita goes all the way back to a 1990 French movie of the same name. Since then, it's been remade as an American film and TV series on USA.

All versions star a rogue assassin on the run from the government. In this case, that pretty, professional killer will be played by Maggie Q. Watch a promo below and consider adding this to your fall schedule:

Is that shane west off a walk to remember? I'am so watching this now he is in it :)


@ty too bad The Vampire Diaries is the CW's most watched show.


This show will have to be exceptionally good to compare to the original tv series with Peta and Roy. Their dynamics and also the rest of the cast made for a remarkable show that cannot be duplicated. I was a huge fan of that series and wished CW hadn't tried to redo it. It should have been left alone.


I like the actors, but it seems oddly similar to Alias. I hope they manage to make it different.


eneci, its Section one not the Division. sorry to be picky lol


Ok so she's no Peta Wilson, and there will never be a better Michael Sammuelle like Roy Dupuis but we have beeen wanting more nikita so having her on the outside trying to destroy the beast from there could be interesting. Sadly they seem to have incorporated an Alias storyline in the killing of her boyfriend Danny (also Danny in Alias) Hopefully this will be the last of the similarities. I only hope we get to see it in Australia also.


Hellcats looks really good too!
I really think it will be something good...
Nikita as well.
Two great shows this fall for the CW.


@Alvin: Maggie Q wasn't popular in Asia when she used to live there because she is not Chinese and she couldn't speak the language well to be in many Chinese films. After her two big American movies such as Mission Possible 3 and Live Free or Die Hard, she decided to move back to the United States, her Native country. She is now famous and has been filming a few new up coming movies, including TV serie.


Maggie Q is the first Asian leading role in US tv-series. Although i am not her fans and she is not popular in Asia, i also hope that she can perform well in other countries. Look forward to watching this tv-series..


the first thing is vampire diaries isnt even the cw most watched show get ur facts straight
