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?

I never understood why a TV station would cancel good series just to add additional stupid comedies. I am so proud of ION for taking on all the good series you dumb regular stations seem to cancel. Maybe ION will continue to rise in popularity. You know not all individuals watch TV for reality, comedy, or lecture shows which seem to dominate the airways for the last several years. I guess that is what happens when you become greedy as always.
ION please continue to run Flashpoint, Cold Case, Blue Bloods, which you recently picked up, I am guessing that is another great series that got cancelled; and stop showing Criminal Intent only on the weekends. I noticed you have cut back on that series constantly running on your station and a great big “thank-you” from one fan. The series is okay but not 24/7.
Consider keeping the mentioned series as yours is the only decent station there seems to be anything worth watching on.

Thank you,

I cannot believe FLASHPOINT is canceled when it is THE BEST show ever! Now, besides Criminal Minds, all that’s left are dumb shows. How can ION just let FLASHPOINT go as without them, the ratings will plummet. It is the biggest mistake not to have renewed the show. Now I just have to buy the DVDs because other than Criminal Minds, there is no reason to watch ION at all. I am so disappointed.

I watched all five seasons in one month and this is the best show I’ve ever seen!! Please do another closing season!!!

I don’t think that FLASHPOINT season 6 should be cancelled because I learned a lot from it, and that makes me want to be a Police Officer some day even stronger, the location is the best and I loved it, it is located in my hometown: Toronto Canada

I am extreamly sad to see them go. Kinda wish ion would keep em on the air as ik they should. Espicaly since they just upgraded ed to srgt lane they really should do a 6 still with team 1.
