Renewed for a third season
On 1 June 2011 CTV announced it had renewed The Listener for a third season of 13 episodes. Thankfully this wasn't another case of having a gap year in between seasons just so that Craig can age as much as his character does in the show ;)
Renewed for a fourth season
On 25 July 2012 CTV announced it had renewed The Listener for a fourth season of 13 episodes. In Season 4, Toby’s personal life heats up as his relationship grows with crime reporter Tia Tremblay (Melanie Scrofano, being erica), who is inexplicably the one person he can’t read. Life will be no less dramatic for Toby’s colleagues as Sgt Michelle McCluskey struggles through a complicated marriage with her husband, while IIB head Alvin Klein (Peter Stebbings, Murdoch Mysteries) attempts to protect himself and his team from the political manoeuvrings of the ambitious new police superintendent, Nichola Martell. Meanwhile, new director of emergency services Oz Bey realises that being the boss is harder than he expected.
