Flashpoint: Ending; No Season Six for ION TV Series

Flashpoint endingThe producers of Flashpoint have announced the end of their beloved cop series after 75 episodes and five seasons.

Created by Stephanie Morgenstern and Mark Ellis in 2007 for CTV in Canada. CBS came on board as a production partner in 2008 and Flashpoint ran for three seasons as a successful utility player for the network. CBS made a deal to take on some of the episodes from the fourth season and then ION made a deal to take on the rest, as part of a syndication package.

CTV renewed Flashpoint for a fifth season and, in January, ION followed suit. Production began in February and will supposedly wrap in June. We don’t know when they’ll air but we do know that those will be the TV show’s final episodes.

In a message to fans on Facebook, the producers wrote:

To the Flashpoint Family:

Today we announced to our cast and crew that this will be our final season of FLASHPOINT. While still at our creative apex, we’ve decided to conclude the series on a high note. This will allow us to give our fans the satisfaction of a fitting series conclusion with our 75th, and final, episode. Producing FLASHPOINT over the past five seasons has been an exceptional adventure, and we are extremely grateful to all of you for being with us every step of the way. We hope that by announcing this now, you’ll be able to enjoy the fifth season to the utmost, and properly say goodbye to Team 1 along with all of us.

In response to numerous messages to fans, the producers later wrote, “Thanks to all the fans for your support! It wouldn’t have been the same without you. We promise to deliver a memorable final chapter.”

What do you think? Are you going to miss Flashpoint? How would you like to see this TV show end?

We will definitely miss Flashpoint! There has not been one episode that we have missed.
It is so well done, the actors are fantastic & it doesn’t hurt that it is filmed in Toronto either. We are so very disappointed that you have seen fit to cancel such a great show!

Flashpoint don’t go, I love this series’s and I’m so happy that Jules and Sam finally tied the knot but Parker is gone. I just don’t want it to end, one more season. Flashpoint come back!!

It is a huge mistake to cancel this show. It brings in fans from all age groups. I think this show could make a lot more, who wants to end a great series at its high peak on just 75 episodes. I usually don’t care to comment or take the time to but I loved this show so much. It reminds me to stay grounded as I seek my law degree. “Connect, protect, respect” flashpoint and bring it back.

I am so sad to see it. go. It was my favorite show. I retired on a medical after 23 years as a patrol officer, and related very well to the program, as if they were family. It’s just SOOO SAD.

I know it will do no good, but you have made a very big mistake. I am 59 and Flashpoint was one of the best shows ever aired. I had a hard life and this show reminded me that when you think there is no one to make it right. when it hurts or you have fears there are people that are there to protect you. there real and they care. most Police departments could learn a lot by watching. you need to bring it back. CONNECT,RESPECT,PROTECT . WE LOVE YOU TEAM ONE..

If there is anyway to bring Flashpoint back on someone should jump on it !! Cannot believe that it was taken off the air that showed could have ran for a very long time !! You had Greag and Ed’s sons who could have become policemen , you need to get the entire crew back together and start filming!! You had the best show on TV .. With the best actors now we get The Walking Dead and stupid programming like that ?? David who played Sam Braddock was excellent as were the others!! PLEASE someone find away to bring back the best progra ever on television !!
Thanks for letting me give my opinion and believe me there are plenty with the same feelings!!

There has to be someone with clout that is seeing all of these posts and can do something to start shooting it again !!!
Thanks again !!
