The producers of Flashpoint have announced the end of their beloved cop series after 75 episodes and five seasons.
Created by Stephanie Morgenstern and Mark Ellis in 2007 for CTV in Canada. CBS came on board as a production partner in 2008 and Flashpoint ran for three seasons as a successful utility player for the network. CBS made a deal to take on some of the episodes from the fourth season and then ION made a deal to take on the rest, as part of a syndication package.
CTV renewed Flashpoint for a fifth season and, in January, ION followed suit. Production began in February and will supposedly wrap in June. We don’t know when they’ll air but we do know that those will be the TV show’s final episodes.
In a message to fans on Facebook, the producers wrote:
To the Flashpoint Family:
Today we announced to our cast and crew that this will be our final season of FLASHPOINT. While still at our creative apex, we’ve decided to conclude the series on a high note. This will allow us to give our fans the satisfaction of a fitting series conclusion with our 75th, and final, episode. Producing FLASHPOINT over the past five seasons has been an exceptional adventure, and we are extremely grateful to all of you for being with us every step of the way. We hope that by announcing this now, you’ll be able to enjoy the fifth season to the utmost, and properly say goodbye to Team 1 along with all of us.
In response to numerous messages to fans, the producers later wrote, “Thanks to all the fans for your support! It wouldn’t have been the same without you. We promise to deliver a memorable final chapter.”

What was MOST amazing about this Series was that it was tactically sound, making it FASCINATING for those not indoctrinated into Tactics. As one trained in Tactics, this show was intriguing and VERY entertaining including ‘gripping’ due to it’s sound Tactics!!! GREAT SHOW!
Flashpoint has six seasons. Yet the internet says five?
There is season 1-5 then one called “The Final Season”.
I hate when they say that. They need to say ” Season Six the Final Season”!
Anything that gives the season number. I missed more than a few series seasons
because I did not know their was another before the final season.
This usually happens to a series I had not watched but decided to purchase.
There is six seasons of Flashpoint. I am researching now. Do a search on how many seasons.
There are five seasons and a total of 75 episodes. That’s it.
