'Nikita' Guest Star Devon Sawa Talks Owen's Return and a Potential Romance with Alex

by Laura Prudom, posted Sep 28th 2011 11:00AM
Devon SawaThe last time we saw Devon Sawa's rogue agent Owen on 'Nikita,' he was preparing to go AWOL to try and wean himself off a dangerous, performance-enhancing drug masterminded by Division.

When the troubled assassin returns in this week's episode (Fri., Sept. 30, 8PM ET on The CW), he'll be seeking Nikita's (Maggie Q.) help in tracking down the doctor who created the regimen, and will inevitably find himself drawn into her latest mission to take down the corrupt government agency. And did we mention he'll be wearing a tuxedo?

We caught up with Sawa to preview Owen's return, hear his favorite part of shooting the show and learn what he thinks of the enthusiastic fan support for a romance between his character and Alex (Lyndsy Fonseca) -- even though the two haven't actually met yet. Join us after the jump for more.

Mild spoilers ahead.

by Laura Prudom, posted Sep 13th 2011 3:00PM
So you've heard the buzz, your interest is tickled and you're ready to take the plunge into a new show. What's that? You don't think you have time to catch up on a whole season?

Have no fear, AOL TV is here. We're spotlighting five episodes from some of the best scripted comedies and dramas on TV that we think you need to see before jumping into the new season this fall.

Up now? 'Nikita.'

Maggie Q.

Based on the critically-acclaimed French film of the same name (and its spin-off TV series, 'La Femme Nikita,') this slick spy thriller stars Maggie Q. as the titular heroine, a former death-row inmate recruited into a mysterious government agency named Division.

Although the film and previous series take place while Nikita is still an agent, forced to carry out Division's morally dubious missions, The CW version explores new territory by focusing on Nikita once she's gone rogue and escaped the agency, and her new objective is to take Division down through any means necessary.

Photos of The CW's Hottest Guys. You're Welcome.

by Jean Bentley, posted Sep 9th 2011 12:00PM
The Vampire Diaries, 90210, Hart of DixieWhile The CW has made its name producing wonderfully addictive, soapy dramas, the network is also known for the incredible attractiveness of all the PYTs it casts. Think about it: Have you ever seen an un-hot person on that channel? (That's our new PC term for ugly.) The answer is no, you have not.

Therefore, in the interest of journalism -- obviously we do this for you, readers -- we perused the photo galleries on the network's press site to for photo evidence of the aforementioned hypothesis. In other words, we found the drool-worthiest snapshots of The CW's many muscle-bound men and put them in a gallery for us you to enjoy.

It's a hard job, but somebody's gotta do it. Again, you're welcome.

Maggie Q, 'Nikita'It goes without saying that the stars of The CW are somewhat genetically blessed, but 'Nikita' stars Maggie Q, Lyndsy Fonseca and Shane West were definitely bringing the beauty on Saturday night at Comic-Con.

But pretty as they are, the 'Nikita' cast is anything but fragile -- they were happy to chat about doing a lot of their own stunts on the show. Q even got up from the panel in her tight yellow ensemble to humor a fan in the crowd who wanted to see her "climb up someone" in real life. You know the move: she runs straight at her target, then step, step, step until she can backflip right off of them? Awesome.

They joined executive producer Craig Silverstein to tease what's certain to be an action-packed second season, and AOL TV was on hand to bombard them with our burning questions before the panel.

Join us after the jump to discover what the future holds for Nikita, Michael and Alex. We've also got scoop on new love interests, mysterious pasts and who exactly is in charge of shadowy organization Oversight ...

Maggie Q and Shane West want you to know that they're incredibly grateful for their dedicated, faithful 'Nikita' fans.

In fact, when we stopped the pair on the CW Upfront red carpet a while back, they had less than a minute to chat before they were ushered away and spent that entire time gushing about their fans getting them the pick-up for Season 2 (premieres Fri., Sept. 23, 8PM ET on The CW).

"We're so lucky, aren't we?" Maggie remarked to her costar. "They're so amazing."

West agreed. "Yes we are. It's pretty amazing to see that everyday. It's kind of phenomenal what they've created, really."

"I don't think they understand how much their support means to us," Maggie continued. "It's just cool to create something and have people connect with it. You want them to, but you never know."

The CW Renews 'One Tree Hill,' 'Nikita,' Cancels 'Hellcats'

by Jean Bentley, posted May 17th 2011 4:45PM
One Tree HillThe residents of Tree Hill will have one more season to wrap up their stories.

The CW has picked up veteran soap 'One Tree Hill' for a 13-episode ninth (and presumably final) season. The network has also given freshman drama 'Nikita' the green light for a second season. Unfortunately, that means The CW's other bubble show, 'Hellcats,' is no more.

With the exception of James Lafferty, the entire 'OTH' cast has signed on for next year, though a source told Zap2It that the actor will likely return for at least a few episodes in a guest-starring capacity.

'Nikita,' which saw a creative upswing toward the end of season 1, will get another year to tell the story of Nikita's quest to bring down Division.
