Production Underway On Season 3 Of CTV’s Hit Crime Drama Motive


CTV’s hit drama “Motive” is currently shooting Season 3 on-location in Vancouver, and six-time Emmy-nominated actor Victor Garber (“Argo,” “Alias”) is joining the cast in a recurring guest role.

Key cast members return for a third season, including Kristin Lehman, Gemini Award-winner Louis Ferreira, Brendan Penny, Lauren Holly, and Warren Christie. A 2014 Canadian Screen Award nominee for Best Dramatic Series, “Motive’s” second season saw an average audience of 1.3 million viewers, a 19% increase over Season 1. Shooting in and around Vancouver through February 2015, “Motive’s” 13 new episodes will join CTV’s upcoming mid-season lineup.

Acclaimed six-time Emmy Award-nominee Garber is set to join the cast this season in a recurring guest role as a victim’s father. Jessica Lowndes (“90210”) and Luisa D’Oliveira (“Cracked”) are also set to appear as guest stars this season.

“’Motive’s’ momentum keeps building, and with another season full of unexpected twists and turns, viewers are going to continue to be drawn to MOTIVE,” said Corrie Coe, Senior Vice-President of Independent Production at Bell Media, in a press release. “We look forward to again working with the incredible ensemble cast and amazing crew in Vancouver, and are thrilled to welcome the incomparable Victor Garber, as well as Jessica Lowndes and Luisa D’Oliveira to the series this season.”
