Remember The Listener? Starring Craig Olejnik and Ennis Esmer, this is the show about a young paramedic who can hear people’s thoughts.
NBC picked up the sci-fi drama and started airing it back in June 2009. It wasn’t a success so they cancelled it. However, the series is a success for CTV in Canada and has been running there for four seasons. Last October, it was picked up for a fifth year.
In 2011, US cable channel ION purchased the rights to air the first two seasons of The Listener, with an option to purchase later seasons. They’ve now made a deal to co-produce season five and will air previous episodes as well. The newest installments are expected to be released later this year.
