Nikita producer Craig Silverstein has dropped hints about a potential second season.
He told TV Line that future episodes will test Nikita (Maggie Q) and Michael (Shane West)’s repaired relationship.
“[Season two is] Michael and Nikita righting wrongs, as Alex (Lyndsy Fonseca) heads from right towards wrong,” he explained. “[But] there are a lot of new paradigms in season two. I don’t think you can just have [Nikita and Michael] happy and in love, kicking ass together forever.”
Silverstein also confirmed that Amanda (Melinda Clarke) will seize control of Division, as implied in last night’s season finale.
“There was [originally] a scene [in the finale] that demonstrated that,” he revealed. “It was pitched early on, but the network thought that it was too much change. Though, I feel that we did it without having to show it, and the beginning of season two will show it.”
The showrunner, who previously revealed that he has planned out two further seasons, also insisted that he still feels “good” about the chances of a renewal.
“I won’t know it’s a sure thing until I know it’s a sure thing,” he laughed. “But I feel the same thing I felt a few months ago, which is that I’d be super-shocked if it didn’t happen.”
He continued: “We’ve been… meeting and talking about season two, and when we get the pickup… we’ll start back up in the writers’ room in a week or two.”
