Motive: Season Three Renewal in Canada; Will ABC Air It?

Motive TV show season 3Here in the states, the Motive TV show can hardly be called a ratings success. However, it’s doing well enough in Canada for CTV to renew it for a third season. Production resumes this fall.

Motive revolves around a strong-willed Vancouver detective (Kristin Lehman) who’s also a single mom. At the start of each episode, viewers are shown the killer and victims. As the criminal investigation progresses, details of what led to the crime are revealved via flashbacks. The rest of the cast includes Louis Ferreira, Lauren Holly, Roger Cross, Brendan Penny, and Cameron Bright.

Though last summer’s ratings weren’t very good, ABC picked up the 13 episodes of season two and they started airing last week. Season two’s ratings have been even worse and it’s currently the network’s lowest-rated summer show.

ABC only licenses the show so it’s cheaper for them than producing their own summer dramas. Could the ratings be poor enough this year so that it wouldn’t make sense for them to air the show, even at a low cost? We shall see.

What do you think? Do you like the Motive series? Would you like to see season three air on ABC?

This show is very good, I like Kristin Lehman, she played in “the killing”, the music is similar with “the killing”. Love all actors come back from “the killing”
I love the nakelace from Kristin Lehman

One of yhe better shows on TV. Puts a twist on the typical cop shows. I hope ABC picks up season 3. Beats the heck out of reality shows.

The Motive is a completely different type of detective/crime show and is a nice diversion from the standard fare. I hope it is continued as I have been anxiously waiting its return.

My husband and I love this show. I love the way it starts off identifying the victim and the killer. It is very interesting the way to show twists and turns until the case is “cracked”. I certainly hope that ABC will show season 3!!!!

Wonderful show in my view. Sure, it doesn’t have the excitement that we have become used to, but that is exactly what makes this show so enjoyable. It is solid entertainment, relaxing and not Barbie/Ken like.
