CW Adds More ‘Coroner,’ ‘Burden Of Truth,’ ‘Bulletproof’
The CW has acquired additional seasons of the dramas Coroner (Season 3), Burden of Truth (Season 4) as well as a new three-episode Bulletproof special.
Coroner and Burden of Truth were previously renewed in Canada and are currently in production on their new seasons. The Bulletproof special was filmed earlier this year and will air in the U.K. in 2021. The CW premiere dates for these will be announced at a later time.
Burden of Truth follows Joanna Chang (Kristin Kreuk, Beauty & The Beast, Smallville), a ruthless, big-city lawyer who returns to her small hometown in Millwood for a case that will change her life forever. Each season centers around a new life-altering legal case – the vulnerable plaintiffs searching for answers and the boots-on-the-ground lawyers fighting incredible odds to deliver justice.
A CBC original series, Burden of Truth is produced by IFC Films, Eagle Vision and eOne. The series is created by Brad Simpson (Rookie Blue, King), who is also an executive producer.
Coroner season three returns with coroner Jenny Cooper moving past her trauma and embracing her whole self. In the process of healing, she and live-in boyfriend Liam are now separated, while Detective Donovan McAvoy faces his mortality in a new way. Ross stumbles his way through identity challenges, while Gordon hallucinates the possibility of a life once lived. In a series of touching, personal, and harrowing cases, this season addresses unorthodox therapy sessions, and uncomfortable, messy, and beautiful personal encounters. Jenny and those around her will come to truly understand what it means to be alive as they dance with death.
Coroner is a CBC original series produced by Muse Entertainment, Back Alley Films and Cineflix Studios, with executive producers Morwyn Brebner, Adrienne Mitchell, Jonas Brett Burlock and Peter Emerson.
Coroner season 2 is currently airing on The CW Wednesday nights at 9-10 p.m. ET.
Bulletproof season three, a three-part special, will see London’s finest, Bishop and Pike delve into the criminal underbelly of Cape Town, South Africa. This tense, action-packed journey will take them from the lavish world of Cape Town’s elite, through the poverty-stricken townships, with danger around every corner. Bishop and Pike will learn that not everyone with a badge can be trusted.
Bulletproof is from Vertigo Films Production in association with Unstoppable Film and Television presented by Sky Studios, with executive producers Sue De Beauvoir, Paul Gilbert, Noel Clarke, Ashley Walters, Nick Love and Allan Niblo. Bulletproof, a Sky Original, was co-funded and distributed internationally by Sky Vision.
