'Nikita' Season 3 Promo: Meet The New Division (EXCLUSIVE VIDEO)

It's been a long summer, but the first promo for "Nikita" Season 3 has finally arrived, and HuffPost TV has your exclusive first look at the explosive new footage.

The show doesn't premiere until Friday, October 19 (9 p.m. ET on The CW), but there's more than enough action in the trailer to keep your pulse racing until then. When last season ended, the machiavellian Percy (Xander Berkeley) was finally deposed (and bloodily dispatched) by Nikita (Maggie Q). CIA analyst Ryan Fletcher (Noah Bean) had been tasked with running Division in his place -- an assignment which he agreed to only if Nikita could work with him in rehabilitating the agency's operatives and tracking down the rogue assassins still on the loose.

Now, "Team Nikita" is back together, with Michael (Shane West), Alex (Lyndsy Fonseca) and Birkhoff (Aaron Stanford) as ready as ever to help our heroine battle baddies and clean up Percy's mess -- and there's plenty of Michael and Nikita moments for fans of the starcrossed spy couple.

We're already looking forward to Episode 4, which will feature the return of Amanda (Melinda Clarke) and Owen (Devon Sawa). Thankfully, the wait is almost over.

Watch the promo above and hit the comments with your reactions. Are you excited for Season 3?

"Nikita" Season 3 premieres Friday, October 19 at 9 p.m. ET on The CW.
