Flashpoint: CBS Orders More Episodes But Is That the End?

FlashpointA couple weeks ago, we reported that President of CBS Entertainment Nina Tassler said that the network had six leftover episodes of Flashpoint and that they “most likely” would air over the Summer. She noted that the TV show has been a good utility player for CBS but didn’t indicate if it had much of a future there.

CBS licenses Flashpoint from Canada and ran most of the season three episodes last summer. CTV has already ordered season four and those 18 episodes are currently being produced.

It’s now being reported that CBS has licensed seven of those new installments of Flashpoint, will combine them with the leftover six, and run the 13 episodes this summer.

ION has purchased a syndication package of the 62 episodes of Flashpoint, including the 11 episodes that CBS didn’t purchase. The cable channel is expected to begin running the series sometime after the CBS run.

This is certainly good news for faithful viewers but it seems like this may signal the end of Flashpoint on CBS. Fortunately, it looks like the show’s future isn’t dependent on CBS’ participation since CTV ordered season four without the US network.

What do you think? Are you glad to hear there’s more Flashpoint coming?

Canceled and renewed TV show

    This show must not end, we must come together to let the producers know how much we love this show. If anybody starts a petition please let me know. If Canada does not want the show, the U.S.A should pick it up. Ratings will never be a problem. We lost C.S.I Miami, let’s not lose another great show.
    To ION or CBS. Pick up this show!!!!!!!!!

    I really hope they’ll renew the show. I saw one of the actor on another show this week and my first thought was “Oh no!, they’ve cancelled Flashpoint!” I just discovered the series this Summer and now I’m addicted!
