    I just finished watching the final episode of Season 2 and sincerely hope you have signed the actors and writers for Season 3. I understand people who love the books are rightly upset about you not following the written work but this is a tv series based on the book and they take poetic licence with changing it and/or not following it at all.

    I hate what you have done to this book series. You should be ashamed of yourself to have twisted it so horrifically. I cannot believe Kelly Armstrong can sit by and let you destroy her work. Do not renew a new season. Logan dies first. He does not live. Antonio does NOT get killed, and for christ’s sake, Malcom is deemed dead until book 13 where he has been held in Nast cabal captivity for cryogenic research. There is no girlfriend and Phillip most definitely does NOT get turned into a mutt, much less die.

    I loved the series and was hoping that CTV would still air it given that the package from Bell we have doesn’t offer SPACE and I’m really not inclined to spend another $25.00 more a month just to get that one channel.
