TORONTO, July 20 /CNW/ - Canada's most-watched original drama series is back with a bang this summer with the highly anticipated third season of FLASHPOINT, Fridays at 10 p.m. ET beginning August 6 on CTV (visit CTV.ca to confirm local broadcast times). With last Friday's Season 3 sneak peek delivering 1.3 million viewers, and winning the night, Canadians can now lock their sights on a new season of adrenaline-pumping action that features an array of talented guest stars including Lauren Holly (NCIS), Douglas Smith (BIG LOVE) and Victor Garber (ALIAS). Kelly Rowan (The Good Times Are Killing Me) guest stars in the Season 3 premiere as an estranged mother who abducts her two children.

Last season, FLASHPOINT was Canada's most-watched home grown drama, averaging 1.8 million viewers out of simulcast on Friday nights on CTV. This summer, encore episodes continue to average nearly one million viewers on Friday nights. Meanwhile, in the U.S., FLASHPOINT is once again a sure-fire summer hit. Internationally, FLASHPOINT is licensed in over 100 territories worldwide, with channels including RTL2 in Germany, Canal Plus in France and Veronica in the Netherlands.     

"Connecting with audiences in North America and around the world, FLASHPOINT continues to  lead the way in the resurgence of compelling Canadian drama," said Susanne Boyce, President, Creative, Content and Channels, CTV Inc. "We are extremely excited to bring our audience a new season, which promises more adrenaline-pumping action than ever before."
