Hi Amber, thanks for the column. Will Gangland Undercover come to Canada anytime soon? I need my biker fix now that Sons of Anarchy is done and that looks at least somewhat similar. – Jenn

Amber: We will indeed have the opportunity to see the incoming History series on the Canadian channel soon, but you’ll have to cool your engines just now. While Gangland Undercover debuts Tuesday, Feb. 24 in the U.S., it won’t come to Canada until almost a week later on Monday, March 2 at 10 p.m. ET.

For those who haven’t heard of the series yet, it’s a scripted story starring Canadian Damon Runyan as an undercover biker trying to gather intel on one of the most dangerous clubs in America. The cool part? It’s all based on the true story of Charles Falco, as told in his 2013 memoir, Vagos, Mongols, and Outlaws: My Infiltration of America’s Deadliest Biker Gangs.

Amber, will the last season of Perception come to Canada? Thanks – Roo

Amber: You aren’t the only one wondering, which makes ME hope the last few episodes will be a good payoff for fans that have stuck in until the bitter end (finales are SO hard, aren’t they?). But whether it’s a good ending or not, Perception is definitely returning to Canada this week. You can catch it on Bravo beginning Friday, Feb. 27 at 9 p.m. ET.

I just read about Daniel Gillies asking to be let out of Saving Hope so that he can just do The Originals. What does that mean for Season 4? Will it pick up in the future? – Jax

Amber: Crazy stuff … I’m still getting over that episode. My favourite part about that whole thing is how Gillies’ co-star Ben Ayres described it, as a Game of Thrones moment. Because even though once you knew something bad was happening, you had no idea they’d kill Joel of all people, right? Anyhow, the writers are still crafting out what they’re going to do heading into Season 4, but it looks as though some of the supporting characters are finally going to be fleshed out a little more, which I’m a fan of.

Maybe that means there will be a time jump, maybe it means there will be a funeral. As far as I’m concerned it would be a nice thing to honour Joel by watching the characters say goodbye, but I can also see why they might want to jump forward in time. After all, babies on TV don’t always pan out so well. It would be cool if the baby were a bit older when we return, and Alex (Erica Durance) finally had to address the paternity issue. Time will tell.
