The last round of investigations on Motive now has a premiere date. The fourth and final season of the CTV crime drama will premiere on Tuesday, March 22 at 10 p.m with 13 new episodes. During the final season, each member of the homicide team faces pivotal choices about their future, as they set on a course of deciding what they want their legacies to be.

Kristin Lehman (The Killing) returns as Detective Angie Flynn and will have to adjust to her partner Detective Oscar Vega’s (Louis Ferreira) new role as Staff Sergeant. Angie will also develop a deeper bond with Detective Brian Lucas (Brendan Penny) while Dr. Betty Rogers (Lauren Holly), who is personally involved with Vega, will now see the boundaries between personal and professional relationships tested. New detectives will also be introduced to the team as well as some incredible guest stars including Jon Heder (Napoleon Dynamite), Will Sasso (Shameless) and Tommy Flanagan (Sons of Anarchy), who will appear in a recurring role as Interpol Agent Jack Stoker.

Motive is primed to leave an indelible mark on the Canadian television industry and its creative family here at CTV,” said Corrie Coe, Senior Vice-President, Independent Production, Bell Media. “Both clever and cinematic, each episode is exceptionally well-written with smart performances from its ensemble cast. Lark Productions, Foundation Features, and the series’ creative team led by showrunner Dennis Heaton have delivered a dynamic final season.”

Motive also stars Victor Zinck Jr. (The 100) and Karen LeBlanc (Cracked), who join this season as new detectives on the series’ homicide team.

The Season 4 premiere, “The Vanishing Policeman,” will see Angie and Vega adjusting to his new role, as well as the suicide of an officer with whom Angie and Det. Lucas worked with on a crime scene that turns into an investigation and hunt for a cop killer.
