Question: I’m almost scared to ask, but is there any hope of Nikita getting more than the initially-ordered six final episodes next year? —AJ
Ausiello: Not a chance in hell. But here’s something you canhold out hope for: A prominent role for Division-less Ryan right up until the end. “Ryan’s talents when we met him [involved] peeling back the layer of a grand conspiracy — and there is no more grander conspiracy than the one we have for Season 4,” teases exec producer Craig Silverstein. “So, he’ll be instrumental is spotting the patterns and forming their front against The Shop and what they’re trying to bring about.” (BTW, Silverstein says the entire cast will be back for the farewell season, and that includes Devon Sawa’s Owen/Sam.)
Question: Anything you can share on Nikita‘s shortened final season? —Jordan
Ausiello: If Noah Bean (the actor behind the aforementioned Ryan) has his way, “The final moment is going to be a Mexican standoff where we’ve all got guns pointed at each other. And then a car backfires and everybody fires their gun — and we’re all dead!” The question is, will Noah Bean get his way?!
“If I had someone to help me, it’ll probably go a lot faster.”
