'Motive' Renewed for Season 2


CTV has announced on May 8 that cop-series "Motive" has been renewed for season 2.

The #1 new Canadian series of the year, CTV has ordered an additional 13 episodes for the series’ second season from Vancouver-based Foundation Features and Lark Productions. Production is set to begin this summer. The announcement comes with just one episode remaining before “Motive’s” first-season finale next Thursday, May 16 at 10 p.m. ET/PT on CTV and CTV Mobile.

After launching following the Super Bowl, and later moving to the prestigious Thursday at 10 p.m. timeslot, “Motive” is this season’s most-watched Canadian scripted series among all key selling demos.

In January, it was announced that “Motive” had been picked up by ABC for American broadcast. As announced earlier this week, CTV will schedule encore presentations of “Motive” in simulcast with ABC, beginning Monday, May 20 at 10 p.m. ET/PT before moving to its new Thursdays at 9 p.m. ET/PT timeslot May 23.
