Critic Reviews for Nikita Season 3

All Critics (9) | Top Critics (3)

It's basically "Buffy" at the end of Season 2, only not as good.

Nov 27, 2018 | Full Review…

The last leg of what could have been a good season was, instead, a rushed assortment of cut corners.

Sep 5, 2013 | Full Review…

Nothing wrong with a show being conventional if it's good at it.

Oct 19, 2012 | Rating: B | Full Review…

This was, overall, a fantastic finale and tied as many things together as it left questions hanging.

Jul 8, 2019 | Full Review…

Despite some issues then, this season and this finale got deeper into the core of the show and the lead character.

Jul 8, 2019 | Full Review…

All good -- and semi-good -- things must come to an end.

Oct 22, 2013 | Full Review…

This year, the show shed the last vestiges of its procedural beginnings and wholeheartedly embraced its compelling mythology, drawing fans deeper into Percival Rose's treacherous web of politics and bloodshed,

Sep 5, 2013 | Full Review…

It's the same team, but a whole new feel.

Oct 19, 2012 | Rating: 4.6/5 | Full Review…

Suitably dubbed "3.0", Nikita's third season premiere saw the show offering up a new pilot to hopefully lure new viewers into the fold while also rewarding it's loyal fans with the same smart, witty, action-packed entertainment we've come to expect.

Audience Reviews for Nikita: Season 3

  • Jul 29, 2020
    Reinventing itself cleverly Nikita remains one of the best (and least watch) shows on TV.
  • Jul 17, 2016
    The characters took a sudden turn towards the juvenile. Pointless agism in the opening episodes and a jumbled incoherent finish made this season a chore to watch.
