When word broke last summer that CBS was not planning to air the fifth season of police drama Flashpoint, American fans of the show looked to be out in the cold with the show seemingly available only on Canadian network CTV. However, good news has come today for U.S. fans of the show, as cable network ION has renewed the show for Season 5 in the states.

ION had already procured repeats of the show's first four seasons and were obviously pleased enough with the response to proceed with ordering the fifth. The next season of Flashpoint goes into production next month. There is no word on a premiere date at this time.
