ABC has set up their 2014 summer schedule of scripted programming which includes the hit-cop drama, Rookie Blue and Motive.

Rookie Blue did so well this past summer that it ranked as the most watched program in its time slot since it returned for a fourth season and May and held the No. 1 slot in the U.S.

The show's viewership boosted 15 percent more than its previous summer average. The fourth season is also the most watched season since 2010.

"We're delighted to 'renew the blue' for fans and continue our partnership with ABC on a fifth season, a major feat for Canadian television," Barbara Williams, senior vice-president of content for Shaw Media said.

The fifth season will start production early 2014.

Unlike Rookie Blue, Motive didn't bring in huge ratings for ABC over the summer (in just a 1.2 in the 18-49 demographic), but the network has given the drama another shot next year.

ABC confirmed today that "Motive," which aired first on CTV earlier this year, will be coming back again for the summer 2014.

"Motive" focuses on crime stories from the perspective of why, rather than how, the crime was committed. Louis Ferreira and Kristin Lehman play detectives, and other cast members include Lauren Holly, Roger Cross and Brendan Penny.

ABC also gave a second season to summer soap, Mistresses.
