ABC Renews Summer Series MOTIVE for Second Season
ABC's summer series Motive will return in 2014.
According to Deadline, the network has ordered a second season of its Canadian-produced fresman thriller, following its steady first outing in Adults 18-49. The first season wrapped last month.
Motive stars Kristin Lehman as Detective Angie Flynn, Louis Ferreira as Detective Oscar Vega, Lauren Holly as Dr. Betty Rogers, Roger Cross as Staff Sergeant Boyd Bloom, Brendan Penny as Detective Brian Lucas and Cameron Bright as Manny Flynn.
When murder is committed, Angie Flynn, a loving, single mother and a damned good homicide detective, along with her partner Detective Oscar Vega, are on the case; looking for clues that will lead them to the killer. But "Motive" turns the tried-and-true crime drama formula on its head by indentifying the Killer and Victim at the beginning of each episode. As the mystery unfolds, winding between revealing flashbacks and present time, viewers will navigate the Twisted and complicated maze of each murder, solving the puzzle alongside Detective Flynn and her team; piecing together more of the mysterious connections that drove the Killer to commit murder.
"Motive" was created by Daniel Cerone ("Dexter," "The Mentalist"), who executive produces the show along with James Thorpe, Louise Clark, Rob Merilees, Rob LaBelle, Erin Haskett and Lindsay Macadam. Developed by CTV, the series is produced by Foundation Features and Lark Productions in association with Bell Media and distributed by NBCUniversal International.
