I love the format of this show - it's by far the best idea than always trying to figure out who did it (same old same old). This one gets the neurons sparking for sure. I hope that it runs for a long time. Love the cast too - great personalities that work together and that it shows off Vancouver/Canada is a plus.
Thank you, G.E.H.

Pleased to see that this has a second series. Just hope we get to see in England. Love the concept as it is fun trying to find the links. I believe that I am not the only one who hates enjoying a series only to find it scrapped just as it gets even better after a couple of episodes. Long may this show rule as we need good crime shows like this.

ABC has a winner with this intelligently written police drama. It's easily one of the most creative and innovative shows in years. Reminds me of "Columbo" in that the victim and killer are known at the outset. It's about time a networkdelivered such a great program.

So confused... What is everyone talking about? It was a summer replacement show in the US and isn't cancelled. Even the top of this very page currently calls it "On Air." I just found this at I don't know if it will print or not...
Production Begins on Season 2 of 'Motive'
Kristin Lehman returns as Detective Angie Flynn to the hit Canadian cop drama, which shoots in and around Vancouver through January 2014.
Even if they don't air it in the US, it should be "gettable" for anyone who really wants it. I hope.

Great show. Please put it back on. It's interesting to find the "motive" behind why the killer committed the crime. Love how it starts off with the victim and killer.
