Season 4 of original Canadian drama wraps production today in Vancouver
Season 4 guest stars include Jon Heder, Will Sasso, and Tommy Flanagan
CraveTVTM First Look available March 21, the day before CTV's broadcast premiere, with Seasons 1-3 streaming now
VANCOUVER (February 12, 2016) CTV announced today that multiple Canadian Screen Award nominee MOTIVE is set to face its last round of investigations, as the series returns for its fourth and final season Tuesdays at 10 p.m. ET/PT beginning March 22 on CTV and CTV GO, following a CraveTV First Look starting March 21. Wrapping production today in Vancouver, the final season brings the story of the series' dynamic homicide team to a powerful conclusion as they continue to explore what drives the motive behind the murder in 13 unforgettable new episodes. MOTIVE was nominated last month for nine Canadian Screen Awards, including Best Dramatic Series.
In the final season, each member of the homicide team faces pivotal choices about their future, as they set on a course of deciding what they want their legacies to be. Canadian Screen Award nominee Kristin Lehman (THE KILLING) returns as Detective Angie Flynn, who leads the team through a season of big change and evolution: Detective Oscar Vega's (Louis Ferreira, BREAKING BAD, SGU STARGATE UNIVERSE) new role as Staff Sergeant means adjustments for everyone; Angie and Detective Brian Lucas (Brendan Penny, THE ASSISTANTS) develop a deeper bond; Dr. Betty Rogers (Lauren Holly, NCIS), who is personally involved with Vega, must now mind the boundaries of her personal and professional relationship; and new detectives are introduced to the team.
Building on its roster of incredible guest stars throughout the series, Season 4 of MOTIVE continues to showcase a fantastic line up of seasoned actors with appearances from Jon Heder (Napoleon Dynamite); Will Sasso (SHAMELESS); and Tommy Flanagan (SONS OF ANARCHY), who guest stars in a recurring role as Interpol Agent Jack Stoker.
"We're proud to have had the privilege of bringing this compelling and innovative crime format series to CTV audiences for the past three seasons." Said Mike Cosentino, Senior Vice-President, Programming, CTV Networks and CraveTV.
"MOTIVE is primed to leave an indelible mark on the Canadian television industry and its creative family here at CTV," said Corrie Coe, Senior Vice-President, Independent Production, Bell Media. "Both clever and cinematic, each episode is exceptionally well-written with smart performances from its ensemble cast. Lark Productions, Foundation Features, and the series' creative team led by showrunner Dennis Heaton have delivered a dynamic final season."
"We are grateful to our broadcast partners at CTV for four incredible seasons of MOTIVE," said Executive Producers Louise Clark and Rob Merilees. "Thanks to the exceptional talent and efforts of our writers, cast and production team, we are thrilled to conclude our finest season to date. Season 4 builds towards its conclusion with even more compelling performances and intriguing cases."
MOTIVE also stars Victor Zinck Jr. (THE 100) and Karen LeBlanc (CRACKED), who join this season as new detectives on the series' homicide team.
In the Season 4 premiere, entitled "The Vanishing Policeman" (Tuesday, March 22 at 10 p.m. ET/PT on CTV and CTV GO), while Detective Angie Flynn (Kristin Lehman) and Staff Sergeant Vega (Louis Ferreira) adjust to his new role, the suicide of an officer with whom Angie and Detective Brian Lucas (Brendan Penny) worked on a crime scene turns the team's investigation into a hunt for a cop killer.
CTV's top Canadian Screen Awards nominee for two consecutive years, MOTIVE once again garnered nine nominations for the upcoming CSAs, including Best Dramatic Series and Best Performance by an Actress in a Continuing Leading Dramatic Role. Season 3 was watched by an average audience of 1.2 million viewers, a 15% increase over Season 1, landing the series among the Top 4 most-watched Canadian dramas last season. All past episodes of MOTIVE are streaming now on CraveTV.

|Angel from hell Canceled by CBS, No season 2|
Deadline reports the following
"CBS is making a change on Thursday. Midseason series Angel From Hell, starring Jane Lynch and Maggie Lawson, is being cancelled effective immediately. It aired five episodes of its 13-episode order. Starting next week, the single-camera comedy will be replaced by multi-camera veteran 2 Broke Girls, which will return to Thursdays where it aired last season. (A Big Bang Theory repeat will fill Angel From Hell's Thursday 9:30 PM slot this week.)
2 Broke Girls will make its Thursday season debut the following night, Feb. 18.
Angel From Hell, starring Lynch as a young woman's (Lawson) caustic guarding angel, was originally slated to debut as part of CBS' post-Thursday Night Football lineup in November but its launch was pushed to January. There had been rumors about creative issues on the high-concept series, which has drawn modest ratings for CBS' Thursday comedy block standards, in the 1.3-1.4 rating range among adults 18-49 (live+same day).
The 2 Broke Girls move takes care of the remaining episodes of the fifth-season comedy."
