The hot and cold second season of this CW series drove its numbers down. That is too bad because this truly is a good show. Season three demonstrates exactly that. It is a spy show, yes, but not your typical one. In season three Nikita (played by Maggie Q), Michael (played by Shane West) and FBI analyst Ryan (played by Noah Bean) are running Division. Quite the turnaround!
During the third season it was announced that this show would be canceled. They did, however, give them a mini fourth season (six episodes) in order to wrap things up. So it won’t end abruptly without any wrapping up. Fans can be thankful for that. The quality of season three will make it that much more of a hard watch knowing that it is coming to an end soon.
