The CW has renewed sophomore spy series Nikita for a third season. The show began airing in 2010, where it spent its first season on Thursday nights. After earning a second-season renewal, it was moved to Fridays at 8:00pm, paired with Supernatural, where it has found moderate success.

This season's finale airs next week on May 18, 2012. The CW has ordered 22 episodes for Season 3 of Nikita, which will likely keep its Friday night time slot. No premiere date has been announced at this time, but a September return should be expected.
