“No one was worried…going into the first season of the show. They put together actors and actresses with good track records, so it was more of a worry of ‘Can this last for an entire year? Can we make this last for an entire year?’ Nikita series star Shane West shared over coffee with reporters in Los Angeles earlier this morning.
Obviously very quickly, thanks in big part to immediate and very vocal fan response, the worry was squashed and those running the show began to look ahead and prepare for the best.
“You know, coming from Once & Again or E.R., which I consider kind of reality-based in terms of relationships, where it might take months for something to happen or years for something to happen– I’ve done a few action things, but not a series, and for me, what we’ve done in one year, I didn’t know how to anser the questions when we first started. I was like ‘Yeah, we’ll get to that in season four’ but then it’s all happened in one year. I don’t know what will happen in season two now; I’m the worst person to talk to now because everything that I thought would have dragged on for four or five years because that’s what I’m used to [has happened],” West laughed.
But West is optimistic about a season two, and he shared that the first season finale will end with a few major twists that he did not see coming that leave some very special characters hanging off that proverbial cliff, so to speak.

I found this video on youtube and thought it would be nice to share this fan experience with more Shane fans.
This girl had the opportunity to talk and get an autograph with Shane West yesterday during their filming in her town. How lucky!!!!
Read her review and check the video below.
Alright so as some people know nikita was being filmed in my town yesterday and i went to see it to my surprize there wasnt many people around to watch probly cause it was cold and the weather was crazy, anyways, i watch from 11 am-6 pm and 9pm-11pm 12:30pm-1 am anyways ill give you a play by play.
(…)When we came back they were filming and we got to watch the gun fire/windows explode which is so cool up close and i met some really hot guy:p besides that i do have an insight on this specific scene they were filming which if you message me i wwouldnt mind giving out little information on it.
When i first saw shane west i laughed and couldnt stop i was star struck:p It still hasnt hit me that i actually saw him my crush since a walk to remember. The best part though was when they went on break for there dinner around 10 is or 11 ish i dont rember and he was walking behind me and my mom and shes introduced hersel asking for an autograph and a photo now that i can believe that i actually MET HIM! Unfortunetly in a time like that everything goes wrong first *The pen wasnt working *Then the page was to dark to see the pen *Then the camera was on video *Then the camera storage was full (Thank god for cell phones!)
The one good thing about all that downfall was that we sat there a little longer and he kept having to reput his arm around me;P haa, whatever that didnt faze me really, im just glad i got to meet him.
After that we said are goodbye, then we left and then came back to watch later, i felt like a creep lol but hey part of being a fan.
Also im hoping to get maggie Q’s autograph tmmorw because there filming again about 15 minutes from my house in another small town called uxbridge:D where i know some people to go with thank god!
Nikita star Shane West enjoys shooting the show (CW, Thursdays, 9 p.m. ET) in Toronto. He cites the restaurant, theater and concert scene. “It’s an exciting time of my life,” he tells us. “I love being 32. It’s a great age. It’s exciting to see what’s on the horizon.”
