Love this show - would love to write one - can't wait for season 6....
Apparently there isn't going to be a Season 6 unless the show is picked up by another network. I hear a network in the UK is willing to kick in some money if another network would pick it up.
Rogers seems to have bought or bought into CITY-TV and want to put their own stamp on things, which sadly doesn't include Murdoch Mysteries
despite it being popular and award winning.
CBC have been filming season 6 since spring, having picked it up in November last year...
ETA - ah, so you've seen!
It's actually always been part-funded from the UK, which is why we actually get it *before* Canada...
