With no shortage of TV series left on the brink of cancellation this year, we asked iReporters last month which "on the bubble" shows they wanted to see saved.
And, just like with “Chuck” in 2009, one show emerged above the rest.
“Nikita,” the action-adventure series that will finish its second season on the CW this Friday, was far and away the most popular “bubble” series on iReport.
“‘Nikita’ is one of the most underrated TV shows on air,” said Sandi Leung of Toronto, Ontario.
“It's one of the rare shows that is filled with action-packed scenes, comedy, romance and so much more. It incorporates so many different elements, which makes it a perfectly balanced show.”
Leung is such a fan that she has actually met several cast members, including Maggie Q and Lyndsy Fonseca, at home in Toronto (where the show is produced).
“It has so much more to give, and only giving the show two seasons wouldn't be enough,” she posted to iReport.
The great news for fans like Leung is that “Nikita” will continue to give: A third season, thanks in part to these fans’ efforts on social media, was picked up by the CW on Friday.
