– Winner of three Canadian Screen Awards including Best Dramatic Series, 19-2 returns Mondays at 10 p.m. ET, beginning June 20 –

“…the writing is sublime, turning each episode into a sort of tone poem, a slice of urban and police life carefully observed. The series is in the tradition of shows like THE WIRE, portraying law enforcement less flashily and less noisily than others, and thus more accurately.” - NY Times

  TORONTO (May 12, 2016) – Bravo announced today that its award-winning drama 19-2 has been renewed for a fourth season, just weeks before Season 3 premieres on Monday, June 20 at 10 p.m. ET. Winner of three Canadian Screen Awards including Best Dramatic Series, the 10-episode, hour-long drama sees the return of CSA-nominated actors Adrian Holmes and Jared Keeso as beat partners Nick Barron and Ben Chartier. Together, the pair navigate the blurred-lines between Montréal politics and organized crime while the squad searches for redemption and begins to heal from Season 2’s traumatic events. Production on 19-2’s upcoming fourth season is expected to begin this fall in Montréal. Seasons 1 and 2 of 19-2 are available for streaming on CraveTV.

We look forward to working with Sphère Média Plus and Echo Media on what’s sure to be a breathtaking fourth season.” “We are very pleased to bring the 19-2 audience this new season filled with exciting new stories,” said Jocelyn Deschênes, Founding President and Executive Producer, Sphere Media. “It’s also a great privilege to work with a network partner who shows its trust in the team by ordering a fourth season.” Season 3 of 19-2 sees a fragmented squad reeling from the revelation that Sergeant Julien Houle (CSA nominee Conrad Pla), once the glue that held them together, was a pedophile and a mole for organized crime. As Commander Gendron (CSA nominee Bruce Ramsay) scrambles to save his own career in the wake of this blight on the force, the patrollers strengthen their bond to help them through this shocking news. Meanwhile, Nick, still rocked by guilt over his involvement in a murder, seeks closure by trying to find out what happened to his missing cousin Kaz. Ben finds love and happiness with Nick’s sister, Amelie, but struggles with the family he thought he’d left behind. Also returning this season are CSA nominee Laurence Leboeuf as scapegoated officer and Nick’s former lover, Audrey; CSA nominee Dan Petronijevic as angry beat-cop J.M.; CSA nominee Benz Antoine as struggling alcoholic, Officer Tyler Joseph; Mylène Dinh-Robic as Tyler’s former partner and now Acting Sergeant Béatrice; Bruce Ramsay as manipulative District Commander Marcel Gendron; and Alexander De Jordy as rookie cop Richard Dulac. CSA nominee Maxim Roy returns to guest star as Nick’s ex-wife Detective Isabelle Latendresse. New characters recruited to 19-2 include Juliette Gosselin (Les Jeunes Loups) as manipulative teen foster child Martine who claims to have information on Kaz’s death; Krista Bridges (DURHAM COUNTY) as Inspector Elise Roberge stationed at 19 to wrap up the investigation of Sergeant Houle; and Joe Pingue (THE EXPANSE) as Charlie Figo, an old-school mobster who goads Nick into uncharted territory. In the season premiere episode “Burn Pile” (Monday, June 20 at 10 p.m. ET), the squad waits for findings from a task force into Sergeant Houle’s case. Nick and Ben find themselves at the centre of the fractured squad, the only partnership that has endured. On the job, the squad face a horrific accident that puts multiple lives in danger. 19-2 is co-produced by Sphère Média Plus and Echo Media in association with Bell Media.
