The fifth and final season of Canadian cop drama Flashpoint will receive its UK premiere on Universal Channel on Thursday December 6th at 6pm, TVWise has learned. Subsequent episodes will then air on weekdays in the 6pm time-slot. As with previous seasons, due to a naming faux pas (explained more fully here) the show’s fifth season is being billed by Universal as season 4.
Created by Mark Ellis and Stephanie Morgenstern, Flashpoint follows an elite unit of the Canadian police know as the Strategic Response Unit or SRU, who take on high profile cases such as hostage situations, bomb threats and taking down heavily armed criminals. The drama stars Hugh Dillon, Amy Jo Johnson, Sergio Di Zio, David Paetkau and Enrico Colantoni. In the opening episode of season 5, titled Broken Peace, Team One must keep the peace when a broken, volatile man goes to dangerous extremes to set things right with his ex-wife and his estranged daughter.
