More than 2.1 million viewers tuned in to see how the hit CTV series "Flashpoint" would come to a close last week, setting a new record with its biggest audience to date.

According to an official press release, over 12.5 million Canadians watched "Flashpoint" in its fifth and final season.

Prior to the final episode of the show, the series ran a special called "Flashpoint: The Final Salute," which also garnered several hundreds of thousands of viewers. If you happened to miss it, fans can catch an encore presentation of the tribute special on Wednesday, December 26th at 1pm on CTV and at 5pm ET on CTV Two.

In celebration of the finale last night, CTV hosted the ultimate "Flashpoint" series finale screening experience at the TIFF Bell Lightbox in Toronto where more than 500 lucky fans watched the final two episodes on the big screen prior to the live broadcast on CTV, followed by an up-close and lively Q & A chat with the cast and producers.

Fans were also busy on social media platforms like Twitter discussing the final show. The hashtag #FPCTV was used on Twitter 4,500 times and mentioned almost 12,000 times on social networks the night that the finale aired.
