** Media Note ** – Download photos for SAVING HOPE at BellMediaPR.caRecently named a finalist for a Golden Screen Award at this year’s Canadian Screen Awards, SAVING HOPE is Canada’s most-watched original drama in the key adult demos with a current season average of 1.4 million total viewers. When Season 3 premiered in fall 2014, it consistently won its Thursdays at 9 p.m. ET timeslot against GRACEPOINT (Global/FOX), and ranked as a Top 30 show among the key A18-49 and A25-54 demos. As previously announced, 18 new episodes of SAVING HOPE have been ordered from IFC Films and Entertainment One (eOne), with production set to begin on Season 4 this summer in Toronto – bringing the series total to 67 episodes. In tomorrow’s second-last episode of SAVING HOPE’s third season entitled “Fearless” (Feb. 11 at 10 p.m. ET/PT on CTV and CTV GO), a pregnant Dr. Alex Reid (Erica Durance) is asked on a ‘consult’ by the ladies at Hope Zion Hospital, and starts her day off with a great surprise. After an emergency lifesaving manoeuvre on a very chatty mother of two, Alex begins to wonder if it’s time for her to make an important call. Meanwhile, Dr. Joel Goran (Daniel Gillies) has something he needs to ask Alex, but before he can find a private moment, a mini?van with several varsity hockey players comes rushing in – and it’s up to Joel, Dr. Shahir Hamza (Huse Madhavji), and a very high?tech piece of equipment to save them. Meanwhile, Dr. Charlie Harris (Michael Shanks) is visited by the spirit of a young man who dispels primal and philosophical advice – prompting Charlie to consider some big actions of his own. The season culminates in the must-see finale “All the Pretty Horses” (Wednesday, Feb. 18 at 10 p.m. ET/PT on CTV and CTV GO). A devastating accident requires the help of Hope Zion Hospital’s doctors at an offsite army base, and Dr. Charlie Harris (Michael Shanks) and Dr. Joel Goran (Daniel Gillies) flip a coin to decide who will take the call. When Joel wins the toss, he and Dr. Zach Miller (Ben Ayres) depart for a heart?pounding day as they attempt to save the life of a soldier in dire circumstances. Meanwhile, Charlie and Dr. Dawn Bell (Michelle Nolden) work to save a victim of hypothermia, and it's do or die time for Hope Zion Hospital’s surgeons-in-training when Dr. Alex Reid (Erica Durance), Dr. Maggie Lin (Julia Taylor Ross), and Dr. Rian Larouche (Danso Gordon) finally face the future and their Surgical Boards. But for Alex, the biggest day in her career is also about to become the biggest day of her life.
