    I’m so excited! It’s so intriguing !!

  • WHAT.

    Is this considered a burn-off? Will Season 2 air in the United States? Hm?

  • Ultima

    Is this considered a burn-off?

    No. Here’s what happened…

    Originally, Motive was supposed to end one week earlier than Rookie Blue, which left room for the two-hour finale of Wipeout. However, ABC then decided to air Shark Tank week, so they needed to free up the 9pm hour on another Thursday. The result is a two-hour Motive finale one week and the two-hour Wipeout episode the next (which is no longer Wipeout’s finale).

    Should we consider this the series finale at least for ABC?

    CTV has renewed “Motive” for a second season in Canada, we’ll see if ABC picks it up for next summer.

    Motive 2 hour season finale won’t be August 29th. There is a NFL Titans vs. Vikings football game in that time slot. Can anyone tell me when the finale is scheduled for?

  • Jade

    Is this filmed in the Roosevelt hotel in NYC?

  • Lorin Manderly

    Don’t know what’s going on, but this two hour finale is two repeat episodes from May. What the hell?

  • Lorin Manderly

    Okay, just figured out, since I watch online, I’ve been watching the Canadian season. No wonder it’s been all repeats on regular tv! :)

  • Lisa

    I love this show. I hope we have a second season in the U.S.
