“Producing FLASHPOINT over the last five seasons has been an exceptional adventure,” said producers Anne Marie La Traverse and Bill Mustos. “We’ve been incredibly lucky to work with committed and supportive broadcast partners who have enabled us to reach many millions of fans across North America. While the series is still at its creative apex, we’ve decided to end the series on a high note, and give those fans the satisfaction of a fitting series conclusion in our 75th episode.”

“FLASHPOINT has paved the way for other amazing Canadian productions, proving that if you make great television, Canadians will watch,” said Phil King, President, CTV Programming and Sports. “As a network, we’re privileged to have been involved with this amazing series for five powerful seasons. We look forward to exploring new projects with the superlative creative team behind this transformative Canadian series.”

Originally developed by CTV, a pilot for FLASHPOINT (then called SNIPER) was shot in 2007. In January, 2008, CBS joined on as broadcast partner before the series began principal photography in the spring of 2008. FLASHPOINT premiered on July 11, 2008 on CTV and CBS, with 1.13 million viewers in Canada, and 8.72 million viewers in the U.S. FLASHPOINT was the first Canadian series since DUE SOUTH to air in network primetime in both Canada and the United States, leading the way for several other Canadian series to head south of the border and air on U.S. networks.    

Over the next four seasons, FLASHPOINT went on to become a sure-fire hit, averaging 1.51 million viewers both in and out of simulcast. By the time the series concludes its fifth season next year, 75 episodes of the hour-long series will have aired.
