Bell Media confirmed on Tuesday the new and returning original prime time entertainment series, documentaries, and specials fueling its English-language services and produced in partnership with independent production partners. Bell Media’s English-language original programming includes the #1 Canadian series, The Amazing Race Canada, the most-watched Canadian drama, Transplant, and the #1 new Canadian comedy of 2018-19, JANN.
As part of Tuesday’s announcements, CTV announced along with NBCUniversal International Studios that a Season 2 renewal is underway for Transplant. This comes after news of NBC’s earlier acquisition of the series’ first season.
JANN, starring Jann Arden, has also been renewed for Season 3 ahead of its Season 2 premiere which will happen later this fall on CTV. JANN stars the multi-platinum award-winning Canadian singer, songwriter, broadcaster, and author Arden as a fictionalized version of herself. Season 3 will see Jann’s hilarious and self-deprecating, attention-drawing antics continue, as she struggles to balance the demands of her family, career, and love life.
Crave also confirmed on Tuesday that LETTERKENNY will be returning for Season 9.
