Flashpoint is ready to launch its fifth and final season in the US. The Canadian police drama, which has already premiered at home in the north, has been given a premiere date here in the U.S. ION will start off the last season October 16th.
While our neighbors to the north were already on track to see cop drama Flashpoint return for a fifth season, with CTV already giving it a renewal, fans in the U.S. can rest assured that the series will also be back for Season 5 in the states as well. ION Television announced that theyíve renewed the series.
If you're a Numbers fan, there's bad news for the series. It appears that CBS has cut its order for the Friday night procedural from twenty-two episodes to sixteen.
If youíve been wondering whether or not youíre going to get to see more of CBSí drama series Flashpoint, we have good news for you! CBS announced this week that theyíve picked up thirteen more episodes of the series.
It looks like CBS is going to give Flashpoint a fighting chance. The network has decided to move the series to Thursday nights. Flashpoint, which centers on a team of policemen (and woman) that specialize in sensitive criminal matters like hostage situations, will take over Swingtownís spot on Thursday nights at 10 p.m.. And Swingtown will move to Friday nights at 10, taking up residence in Flashpoints vacated timeslot.
As eager as I was to see this first episode of this series, I definitely wasnít disappointed with it. Iím a bit surprised that CBS stuffed this new show in their Friday night 10 p.m. timeslot. It seems to have a lot of potential, with a solid cast, decent dialogue and some great tension but being summer, I have to wonder if itís going to find the right audience in its current timeslot.
This series looks like a nice blend of drama and suspense. Add that to the fact that Enrico Colantoni is starring in this series and I donít need any other reason to check out the pilot. I adored Colantoni in Veronica Mars and love that heís got his own show now. As a bonus though, Amy Jo Johnsonís also in Flashpoint. You might remember her from her role in Felicity or as the Pink Ranger in the Mighty Morphin Power Rangers.
The summer season is quickly approaching and the premiere dates for the series set to start back up with new episodes in the upcoming months are slowly but surely popping up on the network websites. In an effort to help you (and ourselves) keep track of everything, hereís a list of the premiere dates for this summer's TV season. Since not all of the premiere dates are available just yet, this schedule is a work-in-progress.
