The CW has decided to air the two existing seasons of the Coroner TV series in close succession. The ratings for the first season weren’t great but, perhaps they will improve in season two. CBC in Canada has already renewed Coroner for a third season. Will The CW license the third season and air the episodes in 2021? Stay tuned. *Status Update Below.
A drama series that’s based on the Jenny Cooper novels by M.R. Hall, the Coroner TV show stars Serinda Swan, Roger Cross, Paniz Zade, Eric Bruneau, Ehren Kassam, Tamara Podemski, Saad Siddiqui, Andy McQueen, Kiley May, Nicholas Cambell, Nicola Correia-Damude, and Olunike Adeliyi. The series follows the life of recently widowed Doctor Jenny Cooper (Swan), a newly appointed coroner who investigates any suspicious, unnatural, or sudden deaths in the city of Toronto. Jenny taps into her intuition, as much as her intellect and heart, as she solves cases. She’s helped by Homicide Detective Donovan “Mac” McAvoy (Cross), pathologist Dr. Dwayne Allen (Adams-Gray), pathology assistant River Baitz (May), and Alison Trent (Podemski), Jenny’s assistant. While Jenny solves mysterious deaths, she also deals with her own clinical anxiety, her grieving teenage son Ross (Kassam), and the prospect of starting a new relationship with the enigmatic Liam (Bruneau).
