From a media release:
Bravo announced today that production has begun on Season 3 of its hit original drama 19-2. Set to return to Bravo in 2016, the 10-episode, hour-long drama co-produced by Montréal’s Sphere Media Plus and Echo Media, films on location in Montréal throughout the rest of summer and fall. Season 3 sees the return of beat partners Ben Chartier (Jared Keeso), and Nick Barron (Adrian Holmes), as they 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 including a horrific school shooting, and the shocking revelation that their beloved sergeant was a pedophile.
Season 3 also introduces new cast members including 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. Writers Bruce Smith(DURHAM COUNTY), Jesse McKeown (ROGUE), and Nikolijne Troubetzkoy (CALL ME FITZ) return, as Lynne Kamm (8 Count) and Alison Lea Bingeman (REMEDY) join the writer’s room. Louis Choquette (Rumours, Mirador, Le Gentleman) returns to direct, with Sturla Gunnarsson (MOTIVE), and Stefan Pleszczynski (THE FLASH) also confirmed to direct this season.
Season 3 of 19-2 picks up where Season 2 left off, with a fragmented squad reeling from the revelation that their sergeant, once the glue that held them together, was a pedophile and a mole for organized crime. Although there is a strong bond within 19, each character is caught up in their own drama. Nick’s quest to find his cousin’s killer gives him a dangerously deep look into the organized crime world, rubbing elbows with Montréal’s shadiest characters. While dealing with his alcoholic father, Ben tries to keep Nick on the straight and narrow while building his reputation as both a trustworthy cop and partner to Amelie. With their personal drama as a distraction, Ben and Nick don’t realize the dangers building around them, and the consequences they are about to cause.
19-2 is co-produced by Sphère Média Plus and Echo Media in association with Bell Media, and also stars CSA nominee Laurence Lebeouf (DURHAM COUNTY) as Nick’s former lover, Audrey; CSA nominee Dan Petronijevic (SAVING HOPE) as angry beat-cop J.M.; CSA nominee Benz Antoine (THE LISTENER) as struggling alcoholic, officer Tyler; Mylène Dinh-Robic (THE LISTENER) as Tyler’s brazen, no-nonsense partner Béatrice; Bruce Ramsay (CONTINUUM) as manipulative District Commander Marcel Gendron; andAlexander De Jordy (LETTERKENNY) as rookie cop Richard Dulac. CSA nominee Maxim Roy (HEARTLAND) returns to guest star as Nick’s ex-wife Isabelle.
