WEST PALM BEACH, September 3, 2014 – ION Television today announced its latest partnership with leading independent studio Entertainment One Television (eOne), reaching an agreement for new original episodes of“Saving Hope.” Produced by eOne and ICF Films in association with CTV, season three of the medical drama series recently began production on 18 new episodes in June. The deal, which includes rights to existing seasons one and two, makes ION the exclusive original U.S. television network for current and future seasons of the series.
Saving Hope premiered in the United States on NBC in Summer 2012, and while Canada’s CTV renewed the show for a second season, NBC canceled the show just short of season one’s final episodes. Saving Hope continued to do well on Canada’s CTV and has recently premiered the shows fourth season.
I know a few people that were devastated when NBC dropped Saving Hope, but I guess now they have a renewed chance to watch from the beginning all the way through the final act – whenever that may be.
In my defense, I never really thought something like this would happen, so I didn’t have my eyes open looking for any announcements.
