CW_network: Renew Nikita | Wrath of Nikitaverse

This post is yet another (5th) update/continuation of my prior post (significantly off topic for this blog's theme) titled: HELP SAVE NIKITA! We Need Nikita Season 3! It's on the subject of my favourite television show, NIKITA.

My January post Incomplete and Not so Brief Report on Briefs was much more representative of my blog's theme - on the subject the many brands of full brief panties which I love to buy, wear, review and male model both on my blogs and in my YouTube uploads on Mister Panty Buns's Channel.

The ALL NEW Nikita Episode 2x19 "Wrath" airs Friday April 20th, 2012 at 8 PM EDT/7c on CW TV. We will be trying to trend #RenewNikita on Twitter at 7 PM Eastern time and if it doesn't trend we will be adding "Wrath of Nikitaverse" to our tweets starting at 7:30 PM EDT/4:30PM Pacific.

The trend idea submissions, trend vote list, and tallies were the work of Julie @CW_posts_early on her trending account @KickassNikita. The winning trend idea was submitted by @nikitaobsession and I blabbed it all over the place via my Twitter @Panty_Buns and YouTube account Mister Panty Buns's Channel.

Here is the written synopsis from CW TV:

"When Nikita (Maggie Q) worked for Division, she targeted a man named Nicholas Brandt (guest star Rick Ravanello) and infiltrated his inner circle. She captured him and he's been behind bars ever since. However, Percy (Xander Berkeley) springs Brant, and his first mission is to capture Nikita for payback. After he has her in his clutches, he tortures her, forcing Nikita to face a side of herself she thought she had long buried. Meanwhile, Percy continues to play mind games with Michael (Shane West), Alex (Lyndsy Fonseca) and Sean (Dillon Casey), pushing one of them to the brink of death. Aaron Stanford also stars. Jeffrey Hunt directed the episode written by Albert Kim."

Notes: The current TV series Nikita was preceded by Luc Besson's 1990 film Nikita also known as La Femme Nikita, the 1993 film "Point of No Return" starring Bridget Fonda and the earlier TV series "La Femme Nikita" broadcast as Nikita in Canada. That Nikita series starred Peta Wilson as Nikita.

Some of the actors and actresses who play (or played) characters of the current TV series Nikita are (as listed in alphabetical order by first name under "LABELS" (tags) at the bottom of both my both posts so far about the TV series Nikita. Longer descriptions of the characters in the current TV series Nikita can be read in Wikipedia's List of Nikita Characters:

Nikita (Maggie Q) is vehemently opposed to the plan and is surprised when Michael (Shane West) takes Ryan’s side. Tensions escalate when Nikita is proven right after they discover Kendrick has a link to Percy. Meanwhile, Sean (Dillon Casey) is shot by Percy’s men, shaking Alex (Lyndsy Fonseca) to the core.

Meanwhile, Birkhoff (Aaron Stanford) asks Sonya (guest star Lyndie Greenwood) for help, and Nikita corners Percy in his office, but he pulls out one final trick that may cost her the battle. Eagle Egillson directed the episode written by Carlos Coto."

During the course of watching past Nikita episodes innumerable times I realized that there is more than ample material (a lot of really ludicrous stuff) for one or more feature length spoofs of Nikita. It's too bad Leslie Nielsen isn't still with us. He'd be fantastic as a bumbling Percy.

I have been lucky enough to enjoy having some of Nikita's cast members reply to me or retweet me as well as reading their tweets:

For more reading on Nikita see my previous post: HELP SAVE NIKITA! We Need Nikita Season 3!

You can watch Nikita on Fridays at 8 PM EDT/7c. If you have a Twitter account and want to help with World Wide Nikita trends they start Fridays at 7PM Eastern / 6 Central / 4 PM Pacific time.


On Friday May 11th just as we had been finishing preparations to do a Twitter trend including the words "Renew Nikita" producer Craig Silverstein tweeted an earth-shattering BOMBSHELL OF A NEWS RELEASE via a Tweet on his Twitter account @sesfonstein!

Craig Silverstein"Um, don't know if y'all are interested but Nikita season 3 is ON!!!"
MaggieQ: "Holy SHIT! Thank u Nikita supporters! We DID it!" Here are the pics of the Tweets:

Needless to say the trend idea "Renew Nikita had to be changed. Last Minute we picked "NIKITAAA Renewed"

Enjoy Season 3 of Nikita, Nikitaverse!

The renewal of Nikita for Season 3 changes everything. This post will be updated in the future (hopefully soon). I will add some postscripts, may do a new Nikita post or may even start a new blog devoted to Nikita. The writing is already underway.

In the meantime I should have been be summoning my nerve and thinking of what to do, blog, post and Tweet about for Friday May 4th, "No Pants Day" - here on this blog, on my Twitter @Panty_Buns and if I'm brave enough to participate (I'm such a scaredy cat) post a video to my YouTube Channel.

Update: Find out what did and didn't happen - I've done a post titled Click here to read the post I wrote on No Pants Day - May 4th, 2012.


  1. You absolutely MUST participate in "No Pants Day"! You would fit right in. :)
    Twitter: @GlamKitten88

    1. If I do I hope its in the news or that someone photographs it, lets me have copies and that I don't get arrested and jailed in my panties (heart pounding and in throat, quivering). I'm such a scaredy cat and at the same time wondering where I'd participate - Time Square? Grand Central Station? Near a TV station? By some televised event? I feel like such a chicken.
      P.S.: Love your blog, Glam Kitten's Litter Box

  2. haha aw, I seriously feel for you! I hate losing shows that I love! It's so annoying- any progress made????

    1. I think there is a reasonable chance of it being renewed but I was dumb letting myself get so attached to it. I need to get back to living life and, of course, doing my lingerie reviews of "Full Brief Panties" I don't know when they'll decide whether they're going to renew Nikita or when they'll let us know.

    2. NIKITA HAS BEEN RENEWED! 22 Episodes of Nikita Season 3!
