Flashpoint: Season Three Delayed, Will It Be Cancelled?

Flashpoint season threeCBS has been having a great season. Several of their new shows have been successful and many of their established series are still doing well. Unfortunately, that could be bad news for fans of a little show called Flashpoint.

Flashpoint follows the work of a group of highly trained police officers called the Strategic Response Unit (SRU). The series stars Enrico Colantoni, David Paetkau, Hugh Dillon, Sergio Di Zio, Michael Cram, Mark Taylor, Ruth Marshall, and Amy Jo Johnson.

The show was initially produced for Canada’s CTV and CBS picked up the rights to air season one during the writers strike. It ended up performing well for the network and that led CBS to join CTV in renewing it for seasons two and three.

Are you upset that Flashpoint has been delayed?

Season three of Flashpoint was supposed to begin airing early this year but the network has so much successful programming that the show still hasn’t been put back on the schedule.

Nina Tassler, President of CBS Entertainment, recently told critics at the TCA press tour that Flashpoint was now being pushed outside the regular season. That means that the cop series won’t be back until late-Spring or Summer 2010 at the earliest.

While the show has performed well during the summer months in the past, there’s no guarantee that will continue. The show will have been off the air for almost a year by the time it returns. The longer that the show is off the air, the more likely that viewers — and TV executives — will forget about it.

What do you think? Do you think that CBS will air all 22 episodes of Flashpoint? Do you think that being off the air for so long hurts the show’s chance for a fourth season?

    The Networks are just getting ridiculous with all of these show cancellations. First Ghost Whisperer, then Medium and now possibly Flashpoint. It seems the only shows not being canceled are Reality Shows. I hate to start watching a new program…..get hooked on it….then have it be canceled. What is up?

    This is definitely one of the top dramas on television. It is realistic and so genuine! What a shame it would be for the show to not return! Keep it going CBS!

    CBS loves to screw with the fans……they take off “Cold Case”……..and now “Flashpoint”. Two of my favorite shows! Please bring back “Flashpoint”!!!!!!!!!
