Nikita is back in 1st ass-kicking, game-changing S3 footage

Some major changes are coming in the third season of The CW's Nikita, and the first trailer shows off a whole new world at Division. NIkita (Maggie Q) is back, and kicking more ass than ever.

[Spoilers ahead!]

The explosive season-two finale was as gutsy as could be, and blew up the show's premise while opening up all kinds of cool storylines for the new year.

Former Division leader Percy (Xander Berkeley) is out, so Nikita and Ryan Fletcher (Noah Bean) are now in control. But the work has only just begun to hunt down all the rogue baddies still roaming the globe.

Nikita has never gotten great ratings on The CW, and it's an admittedly odd fit with the network's usual slate of teen girl high school dramas. But, trust us, it's definitely worth a look if you've never tuned in.

Think Alias 2.0, just without all the crazy stuff from the final few seasons.

The new season doesn't premiere until October 19, but until then, hopefully this trailer can keep you entertained:
