The show ran five seasons. The season number determined the number of words in an episodes title (i.e., all third season episodes had three words in their title).
In the original film as well as the remake, Nikita murders someone and is found guilty. In the TV show, she did not murder anyone, and is found guilty anyway.
In the first episode of season one, "Nikita", footage taken from the movie Point of No Return is used while Nikita is sliding down the garbage chute when she's in the restaurant.
Don Francks (Walter) originally read for the part of Operations.
There was never any paper used in the Section.
When Nikita works undercover, she always uses her real name.
According to the coordinate data leaked during this episode, Section One's location was at 48.52 N 2.20 E, which is about 45 km SW of Paris, France. However, that location was evacuated and incinerated in the same episode. As Michael and Operations leave Section, the Eiffel Tower is seen in the background.
Was originally intended to be the start of a spin-off series starring the younger characters.
The episode is named after an album by Led Zeppelin.
The title is based upon a quote from William Shakespeare's play "As You Like It": (Act II, Scene VII): "All the world's a stage, and all the men and women merely players."
