Viewer’s pulses race once again as Shaw Media announced today that Global’s hit medical drama Remedy has been green lit for a second season. Remedy had a strong first season, averaging nearly 1 million viewers each week (2+). Commissioned by Shaw Media’s original content team and produced by Indian Grove Productions, a total of 10 episodes have been ordered and production is set to begin in Toronto and Hamilton later this year.
“Remedy is a proven hit and solid performer for Global, and we’re delighted to be able to watch these characters grow even further with a second season,” said Barbara Williams, Senior Vice President, Content, Shaw Media.
The high stakes, prime-time medical drama once again follows the Conner family’s trials and tribulations, while zeroing in on the distinct ‘upstairs/downstairs’ dynamic of a downtown hospital. Remedy continues to go beyond the OR and the ER to reveal the compelling community who together make the healing happen.
The series follows Griffin Conner, son of the Acting Chief of Staff, and brother to the strong and resourceful Sandy, an ICU Nurse, and the highly disciplined, perfectionist Melissa, a General Surgeon. Season 1 saw Griffin, a med school dropout having left in a haze of disgrace, forced to return to Bethune General Hospital as its newest orderly. Working “downstairs” alongside a cast of colourful characters, Griffin gets a new perspective on a world he thought he knew.
From creator and showrunner Greg Spottiswood (King), Remedy stars Enrico Colantoni (Flashpoint, Galaxy Quest, Just Shoot Me!) as Acting Chief of Staff and family patriarch Allen Conner, Dillon Casey (Nikita, The Vow, MVP) as his son Griffin, Sara Canning (The Vampire Diaries, Primeval: New World) as his General Surgeon daughter Melissa, and Sarah Allen (Jozi-H, Murdoch Mysteries) as his eldest daughter, and ICU Nurse, Sandy.
