The original Canadian production has gone on to be distributed in more than 98 countries and comes to a close following a successful sixth season run on CBC.
Set and filmed in St. John’s, Newfoundland, the series has single-handedly helped to stimulate the province’s television production industry and it is the largest original TV or film production ever mounted in Newfoundland and Labrador The popular program has become an overwhelming success, hosting top-tier talent with guest stars including Gordon Pinsent, Shannon Tweed, Paul Gross, Academy Award® winner Russell Crowe, Alan Doyle, Cathy Jones, Shaun Majumder and many more.

And in the midst of everything, the Doyles have 48 hours to solve a complicated case before their world changes forever.
In part two, “Last Call”, the battle for the Republic is on. Jake and Leslie fight for their lives as powerful enemies close ranks. The Doyles pull out every trick to protect their own and get help from an unexpected ally. Everything comes down to the wire as they hunt for the evidence they need to clear Jake’s murder charge and secure freedom in the City of Legends.
