Super Channel to air first season of Mennonite drug drama Pure premieres January 22

From a media release:

In advance of the highly anticipated Canadian premiere of the second season of Pure, Super Channel is pleased to give subscribers a chance to catch up on the first season of the acclaimed Mennonite drug drama, when it premieres Tuesday, January 22 at 10 p.m. ET on Super Channel Fuse. Each episode of the six-episode first season will also be available on Super Channel on Demand the day following its linear broadcast.

Season One of Pure introduces viewers to the insular world of the Mennonite community and the double life that one pastor must adopt to protect his family from a crime syndicate. Inspired by true events, Pure follows the journey of Noah Funk, a newly-elected Mennonite pastor, who is determined to rid his community of the scourge of drugs and its nefarious ties to a transborder smuggling alliance with ruthless Mexican cocaine cartels.

Pure stars Ryan Robbins (Arrow, Falling Skies, The Killing) as the good-hearted and conflicted pastor, Noah Funk, and Alex Paxton-Beesley (The Strain, Murdoch Mysteries) as his devoted wife, Anna. Season one also stars A.J. Buckley (SEAL Team, Murder in the First), Rosie Perez (Rise, Search Party), Peter Outerbridge (Taken, 12 Monkeys, The Expanse) and Gord Rand (Orphan Black).

Super Channel has greenlit a sophomore season of the scripted series, with Alyson Hannigan (How I Met Your Mother, American Pie, Buffy the Vampire Slayer) joining the cast as a recurring guest star. Season Two of Pure is slated to premiere in Spring 2019.

Pure is produced by Two East Productions and Cineflix Studios in association with Super Channel, WGN America, Hulu and the CBC.  The series is created and written by Michael Amo (The Listener) with Ken Girotti (Orphan Black, Vikings) as series director. Amo and Girotti will serve as executive producers for the second season, along with Brett Burlock, Peter Emerson and David MacLeod (Call Me Fitz, Haven). Cineflix Rights has the exclusive worldwide distribution rights to Pure.
