The series saw a young woman framed for murder and given a choice: be sentenced to life imprisonment, or work for Section One, a clandestine anti-terrorism organization. Nikita chose life, soon discovering that she is just the latest pawn in Section's games
In 2010 it was announced that The CW would be producing a new follow on series titled simply as Nikita. More information on this show can be found here.
Following the series' cancellation in 2000, its dedicated viewers mounted an extensive fan campaign to revive it. "Save LFN" was notable for its size and inventiveness. As a result, Nikita returned for a fifth and final season of eight new episodes.
