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 they’ve renewed the series.
Flashpoint is a Canadian police drama starring Enrico Colantoni (Just Shoot Me, Veronica Mars) and Amy Jo Johnson (Felicity, Mighty Morphin Power Rangers) and follows an “elite tactical unit” of the police force, often tasked to deal with complicated, sensitive situations, some of which have to do with hostages or bombs. Season 4 of the series has already finished up in Canada as of last month, with the remaining few episodes set to air in the U.S. later this month.
ION’s announcement states that they’ve picked the series up for 13 more episodes, which will begin shooting in February.
"Flashpoint's' solid performance season-to-date shows that a growing number of fans enjoy the series on ION Television," says ION CEO Brandon Burgess. "We welcome back this exciting dramatic series and its cast to ION Television for another season in 2012."
Per Deadline, the renewal for Season 5 was already in place by CTV in Canada. So it’s good news all around for fans of the series.
