At this year's Television Critics Association summer press tour, CBS let slip that cop drama Flashpoint is unlikely to return to the network's schedule for its fifth season.

When asked about the prospects of airing future episodes of the show, network president Nina Tassler replied, "We haven't decided yet... I don't think so."

While this news may be depressing for American fans of the show, all hope might not be lost. Flashpoint has already been renewed for Season 5 by Canadian network CTV. If a high number of CBS shows falter in the upcoming season, it would be tempting for them to pick up new already-produced episodes of the Canadian show.

For now, Season 4 of Flashpoint is currently airing Friday nights on CBS and CTV.
