'Nikita' Season 4 renewal: Will the show return for a final, shortened season?

When The CW announced renewals and pickups for several of its shows on Friday (April 26), only a couple of shows were left off of the list. There is no word on the fate of one of the shows, "The Carrie Diaries," but the news is a little more positive for the other, "Nikita."

After all, The CW will not present its formal schedule until its upfront announcement on May 16. We probably won't hear any definite news on "Nikita" until then.Even though the show has always struggled in the ratings (often attracting less than a million viewers during its Friday-evening broadcasts), "Nikita" is a fan-favorite with the ability to sell overseas. Deadline has indicated that a 13-episode, final season would be the... //
