Tonight’s Episode Of Saving Hope Was Great! In Tonight’s Episode, Charlie Begin Questioning Whether He Would Survive Or Not. Alex Continued To Express Her Belief (And Faith) In Charlie’s Survival. Tonight, Charlie Began To Question If He Hasn’t Passed On Yet, Due To Unfinished Business. I Continue To Love This Show Because It’s Able To Adequately Mix In A Supernatural Back Story, Along With A Solid Medical Setting. I Continue To Love This Show, And I Can’t Wait To Become Further Engrossed In The Season. Overall, I Would Definitely Recommend Saving Hope. Watch Saving Hope Live: Thursday’s At 9/8C. On NBC.

There’s No Word Of A Second Season For Saving Hope Here In The U.S. I Highly Expect The Show To Be Cancelled After This Season, In The U.S. Good Canadian Viewers Of The Show, Saving Hope Has Officially Been Renewed For A Second Season, In Canada.
