Forget the rumors that Maggie Q won’t be playing the title star in Nikita – these pictures prove otherwise! The series Nikita is coming to The CW on Thursday nights after The Vampire Diaries. They’re hoping to get some of that Supernatural audience, and have moved Supernatural to Friday nights. Will you guys stay tuned for Nikkita? I’ll give it a chance, at least. The role model template seems solid, unless she starts killing tons of people. In these types of shows it’s usually that the main character only accidentally kills the bad buys, though.

NIKITA stars international action-film star and martial arts expert Maggie Q (“Mission Impossible III”) in the title role as a spy and assassin for a top secret U.S. government agency, who rebels against the system that created her and will stop at nothing to bring their powerful operation to an end. Shane West (“E.R.”) and Lyndsy Fonseca (“Kick Ass”) also star.
