From a media release:
Canada’s favourite detective duo â€“ Matt Shade(Jason Priestley) and Angie Everett (Cindy Sampson) â€“ are back on the job with new cases and new faces as Private Eyes returns with all-new episodes on Global, beginning Sunday, May 27 at 9 p.m. ET/PT. From Entertainment One (eOne), Season 2 picks up with Shade (Priestley) and Angie (Sampson) settling into personal relationships with their respective partners Mel (Bree Williamson) and Dr. Ken (Mark GhanimÃ©), while focusing on expanding their ever-evolvingÂ partnership and taking on bigger and better cases. From morning shows and microbreweries, to medieval knights and a missing octopus, no case is too outrageous for the dynamic pair. But will their undeniable attraction to each other getÂ in the way of their ability to solve crimes?
The first new episode takes place in the fast-paced world of female professional boxing as Shade and Angie try to avoid being sucker-punched. Shade is hired by a boxer to prove a fight was fixed, but is blind-sided when he meets the boxer’s manager: none other than his ex-manager who made off with all of Shade’s pro-hockey money! Meanwhile, Angie brings in her mother, Nora (Mimi Kuzyk), as a gambling expert (and reformed gambling addict) to help crack the case before their client gets the knockout of her life. The episode guest stars include Canadian sports legend George Chuvalo as himself, plus on-screen cameos by “Fearless” Fred Kennedy of 102.1 The Edge and Q107 morning show host Ryan Parker.
Additional guest stars this season include ET Canada host Cheryl Hickey, Peter MacNeill (Call Me Fitz), Colin Ferguson (Eureka), Laura Vandervoort (Bitten), and Lucas Bryant (Haven).
Along with the Season 2 return of the series, production for Private Eyes Season 3 is now underway in Toronto. With a 12-episode order, the new season is set to return to Global in 2019, and will feature Shade and Everett as they become more intertwined into the antic adventures, taking on Toronto’s most difficult and unusual cases. Familiar faces including Jules (Jordyn Negri), Don (Barry Flatman), Zoe (Samantha Wan), Detective Mazhari (Ennis Esmer), Detective Nolan (Cle Bennett), and Becca (Nicole DeBoer) all return to Season 3, along with new characters Inspector Carson (Linda Kash) and Officer Danica Powers (cast to be announced).
