RENEWED: Vancouver Whydunit MOTIVE Gets Second Season on CTV

CTV renewed Vancouver crime drama Motive for a second season today. The #1 new Canadian series of the broadcast year is averaging 1.1 million viewers per murder here. The season finale about a young killer who’s about to kill again  — The One Who Got Away — is scheduled for Thursday, May 16th. And a week later, Motive will debut on American network ABC (CTV plans to simulcast what will be encore episodes for Canadians).

A twist on procedurals, Motive is a whydunit which focuses on why a murder is committed in the first place instead of the regular whodunit which focuses on who did it. The Killer and The Victim are revealed to the audience at the top of the show and we follow detectives Angie Flynn (Kristin Lehman) and Oscar Vega (Louis Ferreria) as they uncover the reasons behind the murder.

Motive airs Thursday nights at 10 p.m. on CTV in Canada and on ABC in the U.S. (beginning May 23rd)
