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. Come on man. This is a great series and I can’t understand why additional seasons can’t be produced. Netfiix can make some big money if they produced the series!

  3. If you like this show Da Vinci Inquest was written before this series. 7 seasons + another 13 when Da Vinci becomes Mayor. Bad news it is not on Netflix. Maybe Amazon.

  4. Dear Netflix, we have only received the two series of ‘ Intelligence’ in Australia recently. I agree with the above opinions that it is one of the best series I have watched since my conversion to the great explosion of TV series over the last few years (crimes, cops, international conspiracies, politics etc ) And many thanks to the Nordic and French input in particular. The script is terrific and it takes all one’s neurones to grasp it all esp in the first series. I think by series 2 we have become so familiar with the cast and the myriad of plot curves and switches that one can revel in the action without so much concentration as earlier.
    So please Netflix do stir up the lack lustre production moguls who had no critical understanding whatever at the time and bring series 3 to the TV screens. You would gain a lot of thanks from Intelligence’s fans.

  5. This is thus far one of the BEST shows Ever…… There MUST be another season or several…. Is Jimmy alive?… I’m leaning on it.

  8. Please bring more seasons of Intelligence. It is one of the best. I am so tired of really getting into a show and then find out that there isn’t a real ending. You have done this on other shows I watched.

  12. This is sad news NO 3RD Season, one of the best TV Series I have watched in a long long time.. It is obvious that the series was GETTNG to close to truth POLICTICAL/CRIMINAL CONTENT. This is unfortunate , as it was such a great interest series,,, hopefully you can find a way to lobby and get this series back on, CBC was obviously sent a msge to put an end to it,
    Wishing the cast all the best they were terrific. Canadian Pride.

  15. I binged watched the two seasons over an entire weekend – last weekend…so disappointed to learn it isn’t returning for a 3rd season. Acting was just terrific, compelling story line. Just a shame.

  17. Now that Netflix has picked up the first two seasons this series will have a huge audience IF someone decides to produce a third season

  18. I have been in the legal business for almost 30 years. I LOVE Intelligence. I have always fought for the underdog, and witness so many people being hurt or destroyed by the corruption of their own government and police forces. I like seeing the not so “perfect citizens” coming out on top, or at least having a chance. I am SO DISAPPOINTED that there is not a 3rd season. I have heard that CBC is being led on their decisions by their own government. What’s the matter, the truth too much to bear for the Government? When governments realize that they are not infallible, and that the truth will come out, maybe there will be better decisions made for their own citizens, and they will stop thinking they are Gods.

  20. I agree — just watched this series (all two seasons) over the past week — there is so much room left in this for a third and fourth season — bring it back Netflix!
