Intervention will return this year on LMN, formerly the Lifetime Movie Network, A+E Networks announced today. Its channel A&E cancelled the series last spring after 243 interventions.

The 15 episodes, produced by the original production company, GRB Entertainment, will return in the first quarter of 2015. Both Jeff Van Vonderen and Candy Finnigan will return.

LMNFYI and LMN president Jana Bennett said in a press release that “Intervention wove itself into the fabric of pop culture and brought global awareness to addiction and treatment options. The stories profiled on this series are profoundly powerful and we are proud to continue it on LMN.”

LMN now says it “is the entertainment destination for women to connect to powerful stories and experience real emotion.”
