“It’s hard to believe it’s been that long … that’s crazy.”
Those are the words from Paul Gross, reacting to Sangita Patel’s news that it has been 16 years since Due South went off the air. Gross, along with co-star Callum Keith Rennie, sat down with ET Canada to reflect on the series about that polite RCMP officer who teams up with a wise-cracking Chicago cop to solve crimes in The Windy City.
Created by Paul Haggis, Fraser starred as Constable Benton Fraser, a member of the RCMP who travels to Chicago to solve his father’s murder. It’s there he is partnered with Ray Vecchio (David Marciano). Running from 1994 to 1999, Due South also starred Gordon Pinsent, Beau Starr, Camilla Scott, Tony Craig, Ramona Milano, Dean McDermott and Daniel Kash.
Airing on CTV, Due South was picked up by CBS, making it the first-ever Canadian series to be broadcast in the U.S.
Here’s a sneak peek at what’s in store on tonight’s final instalment for Canadian TV week.
ET Canada airs weeknights at 7:30 p.m. ET on Global.
