Hot on the on the heals of three more Gemini Award wins Saturday night, including Best Dramatic series, Canada’s most-watched original drama series FLASHPOINT wraps its Fall season this Friday, November 20 at 10 p.m. ET on CTV (visit CTV.ca to confirm local broadcast times). Shot from inside one of hockey’s greatest temples, historic Maple Leaf Gardens comes back to life, guest-starring as “Godwin Coliseum” when the SRU attempts to disarm a highly-trained and passionate sniper who will to do anything to save the famed arena from demolition. With unprecedented access, viewers get a never-before seen look at the bowels of Maple Leaf Gardens, including hidden corridors, the Foster Hewitt Gondola, and the announcer’s booth used by former house-announcer Paul Morris, as the SRU tracks down their target in one of the series’ most riveting episodes ever.

Nominated for a record 19 Gemini Awards, FLASHPOINT nabbed four Gemini Awards in October and three more in Calgary on Saturday, including Best Dramatic Series, Best Performance by an Actor (Enrico Colantoni) and Best Direction in a Dramatic Series (Kelly Makin).

In addition to now being Canada’s Best Dramatic Series, FLASHPOINT is also Canada’s most-watched original drama, breaking records in its second blockbuster season. FLASHPOINT averages 1.8 million viewers on CTV, up 38% from last winter (Season 2, Part 1). One of Canada’s Top 20 most-watched programs, FLASHPOINT consistently is the most-watched program in the country on Friday nights, and broke the two million viewer mark (2.06 million) with a series high for its Season 2, Part 2 premiere in September.

“Thirty-one episodes later, FLASHPOINT has set the gold standard for award-winning and popular Canadian television,” said Susanne Boyce, President, Creative, Content and Channels, CTV Inc. “FLASHPOINT continues to resonate with viewers because of its unique blend of high-tension action and heart.”

In the Fall finale, entitled “Behind the Blue Line” (Friday, November 20 at 10 p.m. ET), the Godwin Coliseum (Maple Leaf Gardens), an arena rich with the memories and dreams of millions of people, is slated for demolition and Darren Kovacs (guest star Shawn Roberts, WILD ROSES) decides to fight back.

As Ed (Hugh Dillon) contains the vast arena, riddled with booby traps and occupied by an active shooter, Parker (Enrico Colantoni) and Jules (Amy Jo Johnson) discover that Darren is doing more than defending a stadium. He’s a Canadian soldier, recently returned from Afghanistan and fighting the guilt of losing his best friend in combat. Sam (David Paetkau), haunted by his own ghosts of a military past, reaches out to Darren. Will the connection between the two men lead to a safe resolution or will Darren turn the tables on the team and gain the upper hand?
