Cardinal renewed for a fourth series

The Canadian series Cardinal proved to be a medium-sized hit when it aired on BBC Four last winter.

It followed Detective John Cardinal (Billy Campbell) and Lise Delorme (Karine Vanassee) as they joined forces to hunt down a killer in a small Northern Ontario town.

Adapted from author Giles Blunt’s award-winning Forty Words for Sorrow, the first of the John Cardinal Mysteries book series. Series two has already aired in its native Canada (it’s one of the country’s most-watched shows), and whispers suggest that it will be making its way onto our screens later in the year.

However, series three is about to air in Canada, and before that event series makers Bell Media announced this:

Ahead of its Season 3 premiere on CTV, internationally successful, critically acclaimed, and award-winning drama CARDINAL (CTV) has been renewed for Season 4 with stars Billy Campbell and Karine Vanasse.

It looks like there will be plenty more Cardinal for us, then.

    I believe they shot series 2 and 3 in immediate succession. I preferred the first series to the second but I’m still interested in seeing where they take the third one plotwise.
