Flashpoint: TV Series “Most Likely” Returning This Summer

FlashpointBig news! At today’s CBS session of the Television Critics Association press tour, President of CBS Entertainment Nina Tassler mentioned Flashpoint.

The series is produced in Canada for the CTV network and licensed by CBS. Its run for three seasons on CBS to moderate success. At last summer’s press tour, Tassler said that she hadn’t decided about ordering more episodes. The show went off the air in September 2010 and hasn’t been mentioned by the network since. The show has yet to be renewed by CBS but CTV has commissioned a fourth season that’s currently in production.

Today, Tassler said that the network still has a half dozen of unaired episodes of Flashpoint sitting on the shelf. The network will “most likely” air them over the summer. She didn’t touch on the series’ future but it seems Flashpoint is pretty clearly not on the network’s priority list.

What do you think? Will Flashpoint return this summer? Will CBS purchase season four?

    What ! Flashpoint is cancelled!!!! What tv station in their right mind would cancel “Flashpoint”? This is only one program that is decent to watch…it’s more of a real reality show. A family show. No blood and guts,sex, profaniity, which is hard to find these days. Just common sense episodes. It was like Army Wives. The casts are set perfect. And “It” got another season after their rethinking about their fans that got really angry at it’s cancellation… Well, I’m angry about this one too. Everyone I know watched this show. It is very popular in U.S. Please reconsider and renew Flashpoint program. I’m in withdrawals as well as others, that I can tell fm these postings.
    Thank You…

    Of all the shows that are on the air, American and Canadian both, Flashpoint is one of the best. As a Canadian I am proud of what they have done, they deal with real issues and the acting is superb. When I think of all the so called REALITY SHOWS that are showing on television now, nothing deals with reality like this show. Unfortunately, the shooting of Kindergarten to Grade 6 children, teachers and others that just took place in Connecticut is today’s reality and Flashpoint has dealt with this reality with intelligence, compassion and respect. What an insult to our intelligence to discontinue this show.

    This is one of the best shows on television with actors of phenomenal talent. I hope this series stays around for a long time. I know several people that feel the same. Good luck and congratulations on a great series.

    I love this show. My ‘only’ issue is that ION shows it at midnight – a little earlier would be niceer.

    Weekends would be good too (nothing good is on weekends)

    This is by far the best series to hit Tv in a while! My entire family loves it. I can’t imagine replacing it’s time slot with anything better! Why cancel a good thing assuming it may run it’s course. Let it run it already it’s not there yet.
