  1. It’s disappointing that both X Company and Orphan Black won’t be coming back. Such great shows which were ended too soon! Now I’m waiting impatiently to find out the news for Workin’ Moms and Anne.

  2. You marked 19-2 as final seasons, but not XCompany, Savinng Hope or Orphan black. People may think those were cancelled, when in reality they were not. Schitts Creek Missing from renewal board.

  3. When was Pure cancelled? I don’t find that on your site — only that it was going to be available in the US on Hulu.

    1. Someone who is close to the show let me know that Pure had been cancelled. Star A.J. Buckley has also tweeted about how sad he was CBC wasn’t moving forward with new episodes.

  4. Thanks. I hadn’t seen that on Twitter. That’s a bummer. I thought it had done well.

  5. How has been the ratings been for the return of Top Chef Canada this spring? It would seem pretty good, as it’s already renewed for Season 6. Season 6 will return to its original format of discovering new Canadian chefs?

    1. Not sure what TCC’s ratings have been as specialty channels don’t usually release them. I’d agree they must be pretty good to get a renewal and it will return to the “finding new chefs” format. I liked the new judging panel anchored by Mark McEwan.

  6. Any news on MasterChef Canada?? This season was probably the best so far and I’ve read the ratings were higher this year. Hopefully Bell doesn’t follow the disappointing lead of Corus.
