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?

This is a great show and a wonderful cast. There are so many bad shows on tv right now, so please bring this one back, long term.

I am disappointed that it won’t be coming back on a channel we get! When I find a show I like, the networks mess with the times and days….or the channels. I will miss this show. I really thought it was intelligently written…and had excellent actors/actresses.

I LOVE this show!!! Lots of action, without all the boring romance.

Flashpoint is an excellent show compared to some of the shows that are currently being produced on tv. I am not one who likes comedy on tv, I prefer cop, drama, etc.., and the show flashpoint was indeed an excellent show. Compared to some of the so called new shows, I give them a thumbs down, because i would like to see more realistic shows, and not comedy shows.

Flashpoint is one of the best shows on and I hope they bring it back or another station picks it up. Seems like Canada has a lot of great shows that for sone reason never last here. It’s a shame that this nation is so hooked on mindless reality shows. Good thing I like to read!

Is CBS bringing back Flashpoint to it’s network? We really enjoy the show.Hope you do,it’s a great show. Along with Ncis and Blue Bloods.We mostly watch Cbs unless y0u start taking off the good shows and I don’t like reality shows.

Thank you, Kathy

Really enjoy that it deals with many underlying issue… It seems to try to provide morale lessons and today we lack that in TV and our social networks.
