Flashpoint’s Upcoming Fifth Season Will Be Its Last

Posted by at 1:27 pm on May 1, 2012

Flashpoint, the police procedural, which airs in Canada on CTV, unleashed a series of homegrown crime shows on U.S. network TV schedules since debuting on CBS as a summer replacement in 2008.

Anne Marie La Traverse and Bill Mustos of Pink Sky Entertainment and Avamar Entertainment on Tuesday told the series talent and crew that production on the final 13 episodes will wrap in Toronto in late June.

“While the series is still at its creative apex, we’ve decided to end the series on a high note, and give those fans the satisfaction of a fitting series conclusion in our 75th episode,” Mustos and La Traverse said in a statement.

Flashpoint, originally created by Stephanie Morgenstern and Mark Ellis, was developed by CTV and produced as a pilot in 2007.

The police procedural stars Hugh Dillon, Enrico Colantoni, Amy Jo Johnson, David Paetkau, Sergio Di Zio and Olunike Adeliyi, and portrays an elite force in Toronto that deals with hostage standoffs and other crisis situations.

A year later in 2008, CBS jumped on board as a production partner just as the cop drama, a strike-proof series in the wake of the 2008 WGA strike, started production on its first season.

The Toronto-shot series bowed on July 11, 2008, simulcast on CBS and CTV, and secured impressive ratings on both sides of the border.
