From a media release:
Temple Street Productions Starts Production on Season Four of the Hit International Series BEING ERICA for CBC Television
- CBC to Rebroadcast Season Three Starting June 20
Temple Street Productions and CBC Television announced today that production is underway on the fourth season of the one-hour drama series Being Erica. Production runs until September 20, 2011 in Toronto.
This season, we will see many familiar faces as Erica (Erin Karpluk) embarks on doctor training under the guidance of Dr. Tom (Michael Riley) who assigns her friends and family as her trial patients. With the patients unaware that she is treating them, Erica travels back in time with them or in her own life to learn how to sort through the issues at hand. Ericaâ€™s relationship with Adam (Adam Fergus) blossoms until Kai (Sebastian Pigott) returns and Erica finds herself torn. Erica balances this training with growing pains at 50/50 with business partner Julianne (Reagan Pasternak) and life with her family–reconciled parents Gary (John Boylan) and Barb (Kathleen Laskey) and sister Sam (Joanna Douglas) who is embarking on a new relationship of her own with Lenin (Brandon Jay McLaren).
Also returning in Season Four are former colleague Brent (Morgan Kelly); Dave (Billy Turnbull) and Ivan (Michael P. Northey), partners and owners of Goblins cafÃ©; Josh (Adam MacDonald), Samanthaâ€™s soon-to-be ex-husband; and Jenny (Paula Brancati), Ericaâ€™s former friend from high school and Ethan (Tyron Leitso), Ericaâ€™s ex-boyfriend.
Being Erica is produced by Temple Street Productions. The showâ€™s creative team includes creator and executive producer Jana Sinyor (Dark Oracle), executive producer Aaron Martin (Degrassi: The Next Generation, The Best Years), and executive producers David Fortier and Ivan Schneeberg of Temple Street Productions (Billable Hours, Winginâ€™ It, Canadaâ€™s Next Top Model).
Since it premiered on CBC Television in 2009, the critically acclaimed show has been hugely successful worldwide. International distributor BBC Worldwide has sold Being Erica to almost 160 countries including SOAPnet (U.S), E4 (U.K.), ABC2 (Australia), Paramount Comedy (Spain) and SBS/Net5 in Holland.
Being Erica has been nominated for numerous Gemini Awards, with Erin Karpluk winning for â€˜Best Performance by an Actress in a Leading Role.â€™ The show also won â€˜Best Scripted Formatâ€™ at the C21/FRAPA Format Awards at MIPCOM. Being Erica has become more than just a TV show expanding into the world of digital content, DVDs, format sales and even board games.

I am soooo HAPPY there is going to be a season 4 of Being Erica. But I am sad it will be the final season. Not sure why??? This is THE BEST show on Canadian television.
I absolutely LOVE Erin (Erica). She is such a GREAT actress. There is only a small handful of actors that make me want to watch them all day and she is at the top of the list!! I really hope that this won’t be the end for her. :) :)
p.s. I LOVE the nickname….. CHICKEN!!!!!
Greetings from Glasgow, just re-watching some of Season 3 right now and thought I’d look to find out what’s happening with 4 – hence the reason I stumbled upon you.
Anyway, I too am excited about Season 4! Season 3 ended on a bit of a high and intriguing note. Love the show, the quotes, the cast. I’ve heard they’re making an American version and (even from an American), I can’t believe they’re doing it. I honestly can’t imagine anyone other that “Erica” (and that “Dr Tom” too, for that matter).
I find it unlikely that I would like it half as much as I enjoy the Canadian version!
Anyway roll on # 4.
It’s in development but may never make it to air.
Hi just finished series 4. Best ever have loved every episode and cannot see why , like the Simson,s it cannot continue. Thank you so much my goal in life is now no regrets. Will Temple Street Productions have a regret about not making Series 5?
Many thanks to all involved in the making of Being Erica.
