With a new boss, new baby and new cast members, there are plenty of shake ups set for Season 5 of “The Listener.”

Season 5 of THE LISTENER premiers Monday May 26, 2014When the hit drama series returns Mondays at 9 p.m. ET/PT beginning May 26 on CTV and CTV GO, telepathic crime-solver Toby Logan (Craig Olejnik) continues to advance his police skills to become an even more effective member of the elite unit. But things could get complicated when Supervising Inspector Brian Becker (Anthony Lemke), who has unfinished business with Toby from Season 1, returns as the new boss of the Integrated Investigative Bureau (IIB).
New Baby on board for Season 5 of THE LISTENERA new digital series will further expand Becker’s suspicions about Toby, as Becker digs deeper into his questionable crime-solving abilities and mysterious background. Becker doesn’t trust Toby, and he intends to find out his secret through interrogations with key individuals from his past. The series will launch mid-season on CTV’s exclusive new digital hub CTV Extend.
 
There will also be challenges ahead for Sgt. Michelle McCluskey (Lauren Lee Smith) in Season 5 as she struggles to balance her career with her new found motherhood. 
 
Toby also contends with the new status of his romantic life this season. Having moved in with crime reporter Tia Tremblay (Melanie Scrofano), he treads a fine line between being too open about his work and holding back, while Tia begins to look into his mysterious past. Michelle juggles motherhood with her policing duties, and disappointment at being passed over for a promotion. Meanwhile, Toby’s best friend, Oz Bey (Ennis Esmer), steps away from hospital administration and the world of EMS to take care of people in new ways – as the owner of a popular gastropub.
