We've got an exclusive first look at a scene from the chilling & emotional Season 2 premiere of this original drama series. Centered on a tragic school shooting, "School" was recreated for English audiences by renowned director Podz, who also directed a version of the same episode for the French-Canadian version of 19-2.
In "School," patrolman Ben Chartier (Jared Keeso) is reluctantly acting as an informant for the SQ (Sûreté du Québec), trying to uncover the identity of the mole in Station 19. Currently, his partner Nick Barron (Adrian Holmes) is the main suspect. Then, when Nick and Ben are first responders to the most devastating call of their careers, Ben’s mission goes awry. The entire squad is embroiled in an intensely tragic school shooting, with consequences that will profoundly impact all of their lives.

His investigation further complicates both his partnership with Nick, and their burgeoning friendship.
The sophomore season introduces two new characters, Cassius Clement (a.k.a. Kaz), Nick’s charming, career-criminal cousin, and Rita, Kaz’s girlfriend. By reconnecting with his cousin, Nick begins to explore his own identity and uncover the fate of his father. On the job, Nick is ready to forge a real partnership with Ben but they have secrets that cannot stay buried for long and could ultimately tear the squad apart.

MOTIVE is an unconventional way to watch a crime drama unfold. Each episode of the new CTV Original Drama begins by revealing not only the victim, but the killer as well. It’s not a “whodunit,” it’s a “whydunit,” a question faced by spirited female Vancouver homicide detective Angie Flynn (Kristin Lehman) as she begins to piece together the clues from the crime. How are the victim and killer connected? What is the motive? As the mystery unfolds, the audience navigates a complicated maze of clues alongside the detective and her team.
In the series’ signature teaser, viewers meet the killer and the victim in two separate opening vignettes. This surprising format challenges both the lead character and the audience to solve the mystery each week. While Angie sets out to piece together a murder plot, viewers spend time with the killer both before and after the crime, giving them the opportunity to delve inside the mind of a criminal, and understand their motive.
Flashbacks to the killer and victim amplify the tension and reveal their shared backstory. The narrative focuses on the unique cat-and-mouse element of the series as Angie closes in on the killer, and the evidence needed to solve the crime.
MOTIVE’s disarming and street-smart lead character Angie Flynn doesn’t suffer fools or authority figures lightly. Leading criminals and co-workers alike down the garden path, they soon realize that taking this sexy and sassy force-of-nature at face value is a major mistake.
