Production begins on third — and final — season of CBC’s X Company

From a media release:

CBC and Temple Street today announced that production is underway on the third and final season (10×60) of the original drama series X COMPANY, set in the thrilling and dangerous world of World War II espionage. Although the war isn’t over, it’s definitely the end of an era as the first group of trained operatives from Camp X complete their final covert mission as a team in the concluding season, which will be broadcast on CBC in winter 2017.

Executive producer Stephanie Morgenstern will come full circle and make her television directorial debut with X COMPANY’s final two episodes of the final season, 15 years after directing the award-winning short that inspired the series.

The final season of X COMPANY will see the team of Camp X operatives press forward to the finish line of their final mission together, hoping to deliver a blow to the enemy that could change the course of the war. After the shocking and disillusioning losses of Tom and those who fell at Dieppe, it’s harder than ever to keep the faith. The rules of human decency are stretched to a point where the difference between good and evil becomes more difficult to discern. The team learns the tough lesson that to fight the enemy, you must become the enemy.

The series’ international ensemble cast returns, including Evelyne Brochu as Aurora, Jack Laskey as Alfred, Warren Brown as Neil, Connor Price as Harry, Hugh Dillon as Sinclair, Lara Jean Chorostecki as Krystina and Torben Liebrecht as Faber.

X COMPANY season 3 shoots on location in Budapest, Hungary until November 2016, and will be broadcast on CBC in winter 2017.

X COMPANY is a Canadian-Hungarian co-production, produced by Temple Street, a division of Boat Rocker Studios, co-produced by Pioneer Stillking Kft and commissioned by CBC. The series is created and written by multi award-winning Mark Ellis & Stephanie Morgenstern and is executive produced by Ellis & Morgenstern, Ivan Schneeberg, David Fortier, and Kerry Appleyard of Temple Street, and Bill Haber of Ostar Productions.
