List of Flashpoint episodes

The following is a list of episodes for the Canadian drama series Flashpoint, which aired on CTV in Canada and was on CBS in the United States before changing networks part way through the fourth season to ION Television. Its first episode was aired on July 11, 2008.

Flashpoint follows the lives of several operators working for an elite police tactical unit known as Strategic Response Unit, which is called in by regular police to resolve situations beyond their control.

In December 2008, only nine of the 13 episodes produced during the series' first season had been aired in North America, although all 13 episodes had been aired by New Zealand's TVNZ (TV2) as of December 10, 2008. In North America, the four remaining episodes of Season 1 were aired in January and February 2009; in North America, CBS and CTV initially billed these episodes as part of Season 2, rather than as part of their intended season, Season 1, as was done in international markets.

Eighteen new 2009 episodes were ordered by CTV and CBS (the original 13 ordered by CTV on August 25, 2008 plus 5 additional episodes that were ordered on November 19, 2008). The first nine of these new episodes, combined with the four holdover episodes from 2008 were aired as Season 2 in North America. The remaining nine episodes, although originally filmed for Season 2, were aired as "Season 3" beginning September 25, 2009 in Canada (CTV), however CTV later corrected their online episode guide to report the seasons as produced rather than initially aired. The correction also holds for the DVD releases of "Season 2, Volume 1" and "Season 2, Volume 2". The last nine episodes of Season 2 began airing on June 4, 2010 in the United States (CBS) and were shown in a different order from their original broadcast on CTV. CBS, however, is erroneously referring to these episodes as "Season 3". A 13-episode third season was produced in Toronto from January to May, 2010 and began airing in July 2010 on both CTV and CBS.

The fourth season of Flashpoint premiered July 8, 2011 on CTV. The fifth season of Flashpoint, which will bring it to 75 episodes, was announced by Bell Media on June 1, 2011.[1]

Season 5 began filming in 2012.[2] It was announced in May 2012 that the series would be ending at the end of its fifth season.

In the following tables, the episodes are listed by their official seasons per CTV episode lists and Canadian DVD releases, and include the original airdates in North America. Note that in a few instances Flashpoint episodes have been broadcast out of their production order by CTV, CBS, and ION.
