A day in the life of Danny D'Amours

End of Intelligence?

I’ve previously blogged about my fondness for the TV show Intelligence and after the great season finale in December, I now have a free block of time on Monday nights.

Apparently I was not the only one complaining about CBC’s lack of advertising and promotion of the show on its network especially prior to the season premiere. The creator of Intelligence, Chris Haddock also points to the lack of promotion as a part of the reason for relatively poor ratings for Intelligence and goes on to accuse CBC of trying to bury the show.

Indeed, it appears that the CBC is unwilling to commit to renewing the series for another season. Judging from message boards and posts, viewers of the show REALLY like it and are passionate about it but I guess if the ratings aren’t high enough, the CBC doesn’t care.

Is there any hope that the CBC will come to its senses and bring back Intelligence for a third season???

  2. I love the show as well I hope they come to their senses and bring back a third in the fourth season until then I’m spitting in the wind… why would CBC leave me hanging gasping for air like the main star left dying in the doorway of his bar hoping for someone to notice him. Bring the show back CBC.

  3. Cannot believe something this good was cut off like this. Writing is superb, actors outstanding. The best show I’ve seen in some time. There has to be a 3rd season!

  4. Please bring this show back somehow great writing and acting! On par with anything i have watched on hbo … and I don’t make that statement lightly. They were crazy to cancel this show and not advertise it more.

  10. I would love to see a 3rd season but it was a 2007 show so I hardly think there will be that my assessment of the situation I hope I’m wrong…..

  11. One of the best crime shows I have watched hands down. It doesn’t have any of the nonsense of violence and sex scenes, just all of the good stuff! Bring it back for more seasons!

    Comment by Heather | October 2, 2017

    Comment by Joanne | October 8, 2017

  17. Excellent show. Keep it going. Fascinating. Suspenful ….etc. Bring it back.

    Comment by John | October 10, 2017

  18. It never fails…I find a great TV series with smart writing and bingo…it’s cancelled. With all the junk TV being produced, it’s a shame that a show with this across-the-board quality can’t find an audience.

    Comment by Larry Lynch | October 10, 2017

  19. Season 3!

    Comment by Marie | October 11, 2017

  20. Why would you end it like that. Killjoy that should be your tv stations name. Syfy is doing the same. Killjoy.

  31. Can’t figure out why there isn’t a Season3,4,5,6. Really enjoyed this show. Netflix you should look at picking up this series.

    Comment by Sandy | October 23, 2017

  32. October 24, 2017 Intelligence was one of the best shows I’ve seen on Netflix. I’m looking on line to find out what happened to this show and to my dismay, it was canceled. Sounds like others are truly disappointed also. Please try a couple more seasons with the necessary advertisements needed to get this show back on. Can Netflix get this show going again if the CBC can’t do it.

    Comment by Mary | October 26, 2017

    Comment by Shayne | October 27, 2017

    Comment by Sue Vince | November 6, 2017

  36. Such a great crime show! It had it all, great writing, acting and production. A really smart show that kept me enthralled. I cannot believe this series didn’t get the ratings to get a 3 season at least!!!

    Comment by Jude | November 6, 2017

  37. Am very disappointed there’s no Season 3. Would really be great if Netflix picked this up and ran with it. Keeping fingers crossed!

    Comment by Rose Mari | November 8, 2017

  38. My wife and I avidly watched both seasons and were hooked early on. Great story line and wonderful acting. So we’re dismayed that it has been cancelled. We wish Netflix could encourage the Canadians to give us a third season. My wife so wants to see if Jimmy Reardon survives. Please, please, please.

    Comment by Thomas Mann | November 9, 2017

  39. Come on-give us season 3,4,5 etc

    Comment by Susan | November 9, 2017

  40. My husband and I just finished season 2, and would love to see a season 3. We thought it was awesome! It’s getting quiet a few stars on Netflix!!!!

    Comment by Ria | November 11, 2017

  41. After watching the second season, I understand that there is not going to be a third season? Unbelievable one of the best series I have seen in years. Could someone please tell me why?

    Comment by JML | November 11, 2017

  42. This show is nothing short of AWESOME! The boom, boom, boom pace was incredible – not one wasted scene in the entire series. Jimbo’s crazy ass wife wins best acting award – her performance was a 10.

    Comment by greg lites | November 13, 2017

  43. Greg, if you loved Francine you should check out the new mini-series ‘The Disappearance’ where Camille Sullivan takes on another great role. http://www.imdb.com/title/tt6643540/

    Comment by Danny D'Amours | November 13, 2017

  44. This show was the best kept secret on tv. Even imdb got it wrong giving it only a 7. It pisses me off thinking about crap shows that get 5,6,7 seasons and this awesome show gets 2!? smh

    Comment by greg lites | November 13, 2017

  45. Unbelievable!! No 3rd season? I guess there wasn’t enough cursing, sex scenes and all the negative stuff…smh

    Comment by jackie williams | November 15, 2017

  46. Please come out with season 3 its a great show I really enjoyed it sad that I didn’t see it sooner

    Comment by Emily | November 16, 2017

  47. It’s been 10 years. It’s dead.

    Comment by Steve | November 17, 2017

  48. We need a third season or season finale two in the series or something because it just could not end with no closure… Absolutely amazing. If they advertised it like they did Empire it will get great ratings

    Comment by Jacinta Smith | November 19, 2017

  49. Please make some more series of this it was fantastic.
