CBC’s Burden of Truth is all set to continue its run for a third season. The legal drama has received official approval from the network for its third season. Featuring Kristin Kreuk and Peter Mooney, the second season of the series will air this Sunday on The CW.
The third season of the Burden of Truth is most likely to air in 2020. Productions for the new season would begin at Winnipeg, Manitoba this summer. No further details about the 8 episode season were revealed. Each episode is speculated to be an hour long.
The official synopsis for Season 2 finds Kirsten Kreuk’s character Joanna Chang thriving at the top in her new firm. Joanna finds herself as the target of a killer after being unwittingly lead by a client, “into the shadowy world of hackers, activists, and a political movement that won’t take any prisoners.” Despite the efforts of Joanna’s estranged father to help her out of the situation, the duo is faced with an event that could change their lives.
The CW has acquired the rights to the Burden of Truth’s third season. Alongside Kristin Kreuk as Joanna Chang and Peter Mooney, the series also stars Alex Carter, Benjamin Ayres, Meegwun Fairbrother, Nicola Correia-Damude. Star Slade would make her debut in the upcoming second season of the series.
The show’s dismal ratings in the first season had led to speculation that the series would be canceled. CBC however renewed Burden of Truth for its second season and The CW is all set to begin productions for its third season, as well. Peter Mooney tweeted that the shooting for the third season had started to his thirty thousand followers.
Entertainment One, Eagle Vision and ICF films will produce the series with the help of Canada Media Fund and Manitoba Film and Music alongside the Government of Manitoba.
