Season 2 of critically-acclaimed The Romeo Section commences principal photography

From a media release:

Haddock Entertainment announced today that production has commenced on Season 2 of the critically-acclaimed espionage crime drama series, The Romeo Section. Created by renowned showrunner Chris Haddock (Intelligence, Da Vinci’s Inquest), the second season will consist of 10 new one-hour episodes in which the players get played, the powerful stumble, and the meek rise to power. As with Season 1, the second season will be filmed entirely in Vancouver, both on location and in studio. Season 2 will premiere this fall on CBC.

The second season of The Romeo Section finds Wolfgang McGee (Andrew Airlie) tasked with a covert investigation into an alleged terrorist incident, leading him into the dark side of intelligence. He calls upon an old acquaintance to assist, a blackballed spy named Norman, , and together they sift through inconsistencies that seem too convenient to be coincidence.

Meanwhile, Wolfgang’s former asset Rufus (Juan Riedinger) uses his new connection with the Red Mountain Triad to become the newest player in Vancouver’s competitive heroin market – the profits from which are being used to finance the latest movie starring Mae Mae (Fei Ren), the wife of the Triad leader, Wing Lei. Elsewhere Lily (Jemmy Chen), now a recruit for the Intelligence Service, plays Al (Eugene Lipinski) against another agent to climb the chain of command and prevent her discovery as a double agent.

Returning cast members include Andrew Airlie as Wolfgang (50 Shades of Grey, Cedar Cove); Juan Riedinger as Rufus (Narcos, RL Stine’s The Haunting Hour); Jemmy Chen as Lily (Rush); Eugene Lipinski as Al (Fringe, Intelligence); and Fei Ren as Mae Mae (Lucifer; Supernatural). Joining the cast this season is Brian Markinson (Mad Men, Charlie Wilson’s War) as Norman, the unapologetic and blackballed former spy.

The first episode of Season 2 is directed by David Frazee while Chris Haddock continues as the series’ showrunner and executive producer. Laura Lightbown, Stephen Surjik, and David Frazee also serve as executive producers, Jesse McKeown is co-executive producer and Arvi Liimatainen is producer.
