The procedural drama, which originally aired on CBS and ran until 2010, will premiere on ION during the 2012-13 season, joining the network's "Positively Entertaining" lineup of series that includes its original Flashpoint and the acquired Criminal Minds, Cold Case and Leverage.
"Numb3rs has a proven track record and features a strong cast with storylines that will resonate with our ION audience," said Brandon Burgess, CEO, ION Media Networks. "The series aligns perfectly with our general entertainment schedule and is a natural next step in our syndicated series expansion strategy."
The acquisition follows ION's recent announcement of an original weekly WWE series, WWE Main Event, which will premiere in the fall.
