From a media release:
Jake Doyle has vanished without a trace and we need your help to find him. He was last seen on April 21st at St. Johnâ€™s Harbour. If you have any information please visit: cbc.ca/republicofdoyle/whereisjake
Season five of REPUBLIC OF DOYLE rocks into high gear Wednesdays at 9 p.m. (9:30 NT) with all-new episodes beginning on October 2, 2013. In the season five premiere episode, Jakeâ€™s family doesnâ€™t know where Jake is, and they are left wondering whether heâ€™s alive or dead. How long will the Republic hold without him? Will Jake be able to get out of the mess that heâ€™s in without the help of his family and, more importantly, without getting killed?
Some new friends â€“ and some new enemies â€“ come to the Republic this year as the beloved clan solve the compelling (and sometimes downright crazy) cases that land on their doorstep. Fugitives, murderers, hustlers and heists abound in the colourful port city, and the intrigue heats up in this rollicking new Season of REPUBLIC OF DOYLE.
Like any family, though, the Doyles arenâ€™t impervious to fracture, and they will find themselves pulled in dramatic new directions and facing big decisions that could forever affect their relationships â€“ or change the trajectory of their lives â€“ for good. Whether itâ€™s for better or for worse for all of them, well, that remains to be seen.
