Global announced on Wednesday that production on the third and final chapter of drama Mary Kills People is officially underway. The six-part, one-hour drama, created by Tara Armstrong, will film in and around Toronto this winter and premiere in spring 2019 on Global. Following last season’s shocking finale, that left the fate of Detective Ben Wesley (Jay Ryan) up in the air, Dr. Mary Harris (Caroline Dhavernas), along with her partner Dr. Desmond “Des” Bennett (Richard Short), return to face the complications of running their newly established “death retreat”.
Joining Dhavernas and Co. this season will be Canadian actresses Elizabeth Saunders (Alias Grace, It) as a nurse who complicates Mary’s life, and Rachael Ancheril (Rookie Blue, Wynonna Earp) as a patient at the hospice with the desire to live a little before she dies.
Tassie Cameron returns as executive producer and co-showrunner alongside Marsha Greene. Executive producer Amy Cameron also returns and directors for the final season will be Norma Bailey, James Genn, and Paul Fox. Writers include Tassie Cameron, Greene, Jane Maggs, Matt Huether, Karen Moore, and Chris Roberts.
“From its inception, Mary Kills People has been a creative thrill ride. Working with Cameron Pictures, Global, and the outstanding cast on this series continues to be incredibly rewarding,” said Jocelyn Hamilton, eOne’s President, Canada, Television. “We share in the anticipation with our fans for the culmination of this wholly original bold series. Going into production means we are closer to getting the answers left from the suspenseful Season 2 finale.”
In a joint statement, Amy and Tassie Cameron of Cameron Pictures said, “We are so grateful to our viewers around the world for joining us on this incredible run of Mary Kills People. We are extremely proud of this series and of our amazing cast and crew who work tirelessly to bring this show to life, and we’re excited to deliver a thrilling, surprising, emotional final season.”
In the third and final chapter of Mary Kills People, Dr. Mary Harris must come face-to-face with her own personal choices, ethics, and demons in a way she never has before. The death retreat is up and running, but its cover as a legitimate hospice is crumbling away and with it the idyllic vision Mary and Des had for continuing their work in quiet secrecy. With Mary’s family and the work she loves in jeopardy once more, she realizes she is finally going to have to put life, with all of its complexities and imperfections, first.
