I dunno do we really need a new Nikita? I mean this just smells of a half season wonder that will be released on dvd as "the entire series" for $19.95 by Christmas.
Actually I don't see why they couldn't in fact just produce a mini-series and do just that. Everyone seems to want to create series that they hope run for 5 years at 22 episodes a pop, when in fact if they did a 6-hour mini-series of this, then they could tell a strong story and then be done with it. Works for Britain. And in fact even though it was technically the show's third season, the huge success of Torchwood: Children of Earth, all 5 hours of it, shows you don't even need a dozen episodes to make an impact.
