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 really enjoyed he show. It was different and interesting to keep my interest. I always DVR it if I can’t watch when airing. Give it a chance. I’m sick of all the reality shows.

I’m looking forward to a new season of shows. This show is different and the chemistry is great. It seems the networks keep cancelling the good shows and dish up mindless junk. These shows need to be given a chance and a decent time slot. ABC please air it. Also, thank you for bring back Rookie Blue my favorite too. If NBC doesn’t want State of Affairs then ABC should grab it up. It’s a great show ABC, go get it!!
