nikita season 4 shortened season 'Nikita' Season 4 gets 6 episode goodbye run on The CWAfter much speculation, The CW has announced plans for underrated thriller series “Nikita” to air a shortened, final season during the 2013-2014 run. Though “Nikita” has struggled to grow in the ratings, it remained a consistent performer for The CW on Friday nights, as well as a critical favorite.

Season 4 of “Nikita” will air as a six-episode mini-season, allowing the story the epic conclusion that it deserves. The CW has yet to announce a premiere date, so while “Nikita” is not expected to debut early in the Fall season, the limited run will likely air during another series’ hiatus.

“Nikita” airs its Season 3 finale this Friday, May 17. Check out a preview promo below, in which Amanda (Melinda Clarke) demands that Nikita (Maggie Q) assassinate the president… or risk losing her fiance, Michael (Shane West).
