TORONTO, Nov. 22, 2012 /CNW/ - Five seasons. 75 episodes. Too many memories 
to count. Since 2008, CTV's trailblazing series FLASHPOINT has entertained 
millions of viewers in Canada and all over the world. It has inspired an 
industry, paving the way for the hit Canadian series that have followed. And 
now, on Thursday, Dec. 6 and 13 at 10 p.m. ET/PT, CTV presents the 
much-anticipated, two-part series finale of FLASHPOINT, fittingly entitled 
"Keep the Peace" (visit to confirm local broadcast times). In the 
mind-blowing, not-to-be missed final episodes, Team One faces its most deadly 
adversary yet - a brilliant serial bomber who takes an entire city hostage. 
Now, more than ever, their will is put to the ultimate test in the series' 
shocking conclusion - one that changes Team One forever and will go down as 
the most action-packed Canadian television episode in memory. 
With just three weeks to go until the final goodbye to the series, CTV is 
launching a massive promotional campaign that includes, on-air, radio, online 
and social media to generate awareness about the final farewell to

to the highly anticipated final episode on Dec. 13. 
"Viewers will be blown away by a remarkable ending to one of the best Canadian 
series ever," said Phil King, President, CTV Programming and Sports. "While 
Dec. 13 marks FLASHPOINT's final episode, the memories and the legacy left 
behind will live on forever. A heartfelt thank you goes out to everyone who 
made this trailblazing series a success, and to the devoted fans who have been 
on this journey with us over the past five seasons."

DiZio on their last day on set together as a group. The poignant, all-new

In the two-part series finale, entitled "Keep the Peace" (Dec. 6 and 13 at 10 
p.m. ET/PT), an explosive package planted at the 911 call centre is just the 
beginning of the most challenging call of Team One's career. A series of bombs 
in public buildings tears the city apart with terror as the Team juggles 
high-risk rescues, multiple defusions, and fear for its members' own loved 
ones. Just as they begin to grasp the chilling truth behind the bomber's 
mission, a defusion takes a shocking and tragic turn. It's all hands on deck 
as Team One joins forces with firefighters, paramedics, and the military to 
contain a devastating threat. As Jules (Amy Jo Johnson) and Parker (Enrico 
Colantoni) uncover the bomber's true and dark origins, they realize this is 
not a man that can be talked down. In the Team's final showdown, tragedy and 
triumph collide as the peace is kept... but at a painful cost. 
FLASHPOINT stars Hugh Dillon (DURHAM COUNTY), Enrico Colantoni (VERONICA 
MARS), Amy Jo Johnson (FELICITY), David Paetkau (WHISTLER), Sergio Di Zio 
(JUST BURIED), and Olunike Adeliyi (BEING HUMAN).
