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?

I live in Vancouver and have been watching this show since it aired. This is a well written, casted show. The lead actors are very talented and this show has a lot of well known guest american actors. It would be great to show this again in a better time slot so american audience can enjoy it. My sister and her american boyfriend love this show as when they miss Vancouver, the outdoor scenes in Motive show a panoramic view of a great city.

I loved this show. Why hasn’t ABC aired Season 3? This show is a lot better than those faked reality shows.

This is a great, well-written show. I hate the ratings were low. Perhaps it could be aired on a different day / time?
