At this year’s Comic-Con, The CW held a panel for their hit show, Nikita, and it was an absolute riot. They showed a brief teaser for the next season, as well as a music-infused highlight reel of the biggest moments of season one. Oh, and star Maggie Q demonstrated how she climbs up tall guys in the show to knock them out…on an attendee. Yea, things got crazy. Hit the jump to check out my full recap of the panel and a preview of Nikita season two.
As the executive producer of The CW’s new drama Nikita, Craig Silverstein wanted to make a female action show, but knew that if he was going to tell the story of Nikita (Maggie Q), it would have to be different from what fans already knew.

During an interview to promote the action series, Craig Silverstein talked about how this new Nikita story came to be, what makes the story so compelling and the importance of always surprising an audience. Check out what he had to say after the jump:
