"Flashpoint" will wrap after Season 5

After 75 episodes, the award-winning Canadian police drama "Flashpoint" is ending.

The news broke on Tuesday afternoon that viewers would say goodbye to "Flashpoint" after Season 5. The show originally aired on CTV and CBS and eventually moved to ION for Season 4.

"Flashpoint" portrays an elite police force in Toronto called the Strategic Response Unit (SRU) that deals with hostage standoffs, bomb threats and and more. The series stars Hugh Dillon, Enrico, Colantoni, Amy Jo Johnson, David Paetkau, Sergio Di Zio, and Olunike Adeliyi.

"Producing 'Flashpoint' over the last five seasons has been an exceptional adventure," executive producers Bill Mustos and Anne Marie La Traverse said in a statement. "We've been incredibly lucky to work with committed and supportive broadcast partners who have enabled us to reach many millions of fans across North America. While the series is still at its creative apex, we've decided to end the series on a high note, and give those fans the satisfaction of a fitting series conclusion in our 75th episode."

"Flashpoint" has seen consistent ratings, averaging at 1.51 million viewers. Production of the final 13 episodes is set to wrap in June.

"Flashpoint's" fourth season ended in December and a premiere date for the fifth and final season is not yet set.
