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???

  1. I just wanted to post so maybe this show will get a season 3. It deserves another season at least. I do not care if it ended years ago. I am sure Netflix could pick it up also. Maybe they might produce it themselves. Please…..

  4. One of the best TV shows I’ve seen, anywhere! I missed it when it first aired on CBC so I’m thankful that Netflix has given it a new life. I bet that Netflix would have picked it up for a 3rd season if they’d been around back then.

    Even if somebody wanted to make a 3rd season, it would probably be way too late to get the original crew back together.

  5. Oh C’mon NETFLIX….you have to give us Season 3 and hopefully 4, 5 and 6….
    Great show…up there with THE WIRE…
    Look at what the viewers are saying…
    Even if you pcik it up 5 years later, the characters and the plot is SO good.

  6. I watched seasons 1 and 2 on Netflix of Intelligence. The players in this series were phenomenal. I am extremely disappointed that CBC will not commit to a third season. Putting aside the lower ratings CBC should be more concerned about customer satisfaction. Try a third season with more publicity and then note the increase in ratings. Advertise the show!

  13. I have continually Watch this fantastic show for the past two days and had to Google to find out if there was a season three which I am blown away that there is not yet.,
    Netflix should pick this up and it would be a winner a moneymaker and totally entertaining to all audiences especially at this time..

    Do not understand why it was not continued the plots the curators the scenery and the fast-moving drama that goes along with this great show is not found anywhere on TV at this time..

    Please Netflix Brindis series to season 34 and five at least

    Comment by Kay | January 7, 2018

  18. This is the best series my wife and I have ever watched. Just finished season 2 last night and can’t believe there is no season 3
    Whoever made this decision not to make is really out of touch about the series popularity
    Please-someone, somehow re-energize this show and pick it up and make more seasons!

    Comment by Sandy | January 7, 2018

  19. I cannot believe there is no season 3!! What the hell? How can a show this good that I have watched through the past 2 days end with no ending. I new better and should have checked before I started the damn show to see how we would get screwed before getting into it at all. Just warn people before you put it on Netflix so we know to go to another channel. Somebody should have picked it up knowing most smart people don’t watch regular stations to avoid the commercials.

    Comment by Claudia | January 17, 2018

  20. Me too!!! Keep watching it over and over. It’s sad never did more seasons.

  24. This show is very good, would love to see a 3rd season. It left us with a lot of loose ends that need to be addressed. Great show! so very few on today.

    Comment by karen | February 3, 2018

  25. Couldn’t agree more! Keep watching it over and over. Actors now 10yrs older so don’t know how that would work. Replacements not an option! I’m in LOVE with Jimmy and all the actors and the actresses!

    Comment by ellen | March 13, 2018

  26. I liked the series very much and I was very surprised to hear that the CBC canceled the series.A very good storyline and very good acting, please let me know if there ever will be a third season.

    Comment by Al McCowan | February 27, 2018

  30. I can not believe there is not going to be a Season 3. We all need closure! Is Jim going to live, Stella needs to see her dad, and justice needs to be served. We viewers need to know. Please renew.

    Comment by Tgold | February 27, 2018

    Comment by Skylar | March 1, 2018

  32. it can’t end like that. we need another season. enjoyed the first two seasons immensely.

    Comment by paul messina | March 8, 2018

  33. I typically avoid watching Netflix programs that have only 1 or 2 series for this reason. If it’s really good you are left frustrated especially when the story line has the potential to go on and on. Intelligence series 2 demanded a third series but without a viewer outcry at the time CBC were able to cut it. Lack of promotion leads to poor ratings as earlier comments have outlined. I fear it’s all too late now and a third series made now would not be able to follow on. I will be wary in the future with Netflix no more 1 or 2 series programs.

    Comment by Andrews | March 9, 2018

  46. I cannot understand why there are not more in the series “ Intelligence” as this is probably the very best crime drama I have seen. It is well acted and great storyline the setting of Vancouver is superb. Come on production companies get filming as it is sorely missed.
