From a media release:

With 18 new one-hour episodes, Season 13 will see the beloved series celebrate its 200th episode. Starring Yannick Bisson, Hélène Joy, Jonny Harris, and Thomas Craig, the internationally acclaimed series averaged 1.1 million viewers each week on CBC in Season 12,** and in the U.K. remains one of Alibi’s top-performing shows. MURDOCH MYSTERIES Season 13 will film on location in Ontario until November 2019, and premiere on CBC this fall, with international dates to follow.

With personal and professional changes for some of the Station House No. 4 team last year, Season 13 will continue to explore new developments in the lives of Detective William Murdoch (Bisson), Dr. Julia Ogden (Joy), Inspector Thomas Brackenreid (Craig), Constables George Crabtree (Harris) and Henry Higgins-Newsome (Lachlan Murdoch), and Detective Llewelyn Watts (Daniel Maslany) as they tackle Toronto’s toughest mysteries, from the serious and historic to the comical and unusual. Returning cast also include Shanice Banton, Arwen Humphreys, and Siobhan Murphy. Season 13 guest stars include Colm Feore (The Umbrella AcademyHouse of Cards) and Claire Goose (The CoronerCasualty).

Yannick Bisson returns to the director’s chair for a Season 13 episode. Other episodes will be directed by showrunner Peter Mitchell, Harvey Crossland, Gary Harvey, Mars Horodyski, Sherren Lee, Mina Shum, and Craig David Wallace. Season 13 episodes are written by Mitchell, Paul Aitken, Noelle Girard, Maureen Jennings, Simon McNabb, Mary Pedersen, and Dan Trotta.

One of Canada’s most successful and longest-running dramas, MURDOCH MYSTERIES (13 seasons; 207 total episodes – 204 x one-hour episodes, 3 x two-hour specials) has become a staple for CBC and broadcasters around the world with its winning formula that brings together compelling mysteries, unique slices of turn-of-the-century history, ingenious inventions and personal moments for each character. The series is licensed to broadcasters in 150+ countries and territories including the U.S., U.K., France, Finland and China.

The MURDOCH MYSTERIES brand continues to grow and evolve – brand licensing deals include an all-ages immersive game experience, The Murdoch Mysteries Escape Series, a collaboration between Shaftesbury and Company & Co. that launched in early 2017 in Toronto, and recently relocated to historic Casa Loma in Toronto.

MURDOCH MYSTERIES is based on Maureen Jennings’s popular Detective Murdoch series of novels and premiered in Canada in January 2008.

MURDOCH MYSTERIES is executive produced by Christina Jennings, Scott Garvie, Yannick Bisson, Hélène Joy, and Peter Mitchell, who also serves as showrunner, and produced by Stephen Montgomery and Julie Lacey.

  1. Congrats to Julia for becoming a surgeon, William for all he does and Crabtree and Brackenreid for their triumphs. I hope George will solve a mystery season 13 and we see Constable Brackenried again.

  2. As an aspiring actor this a great show to get inspired by. With it’s great writing and great acting it we be sad to see I’d end

  3. Congratulations to Yannick Bisson and cast to be able to do another series. Even watching the reruns are good. Thanks for using your gifts to show the world detective mannerism. It is appreciated.

  4. I love this show! I’m only up to season six, so far. This show is intellectually stimulating and, yet, easy to follow. I love how they integrate famous people and events from the show’s time period. I do not have cable TV and I’ve been watching on Hulu, but they only have up to season six. I will have to find a streaming service that has the newer seasons now.

    1. Acorn TV has all the seasons and will show new episodes weekly as they are released. Available on Roku and mobile devices/computer.

      1. That’s awesome, Pat. Thanks for letting me know. I will check that out. Also, I was mistaken about Hulu only having up to season six. I just noticed they haven’t gotten up to season ten.

          1. I don’t know where Petra lives, but Murdoch Mysteries is no longer available on Netflix where I live (Georgia, US). They took it off some time ago. That’s why I started watching it on Hulu.

        1. Oh, wow. I just looked into that. It’s only $4.99US extra a month and they have all of the seasons of Murdoch Mysteries. Acorn also has other great shows too. Thanks, Terry.

    2. Go to your public library and pick up any season of the show for free!
      DVD’’s of every season waiting for you!

  5. My husband and I live in Canton, Michigan, and we love this show. We watch the reruns at 5pm everyday, and the the current season every Monday. We find it better than some of the shows in the USA !
    My only request – Please, Please bring back Emily Grace. George deserves to be happy, he needs Emily. They made an adorable couple.

  6. YEAH !!!!
    Glad to know Murdoch & Co will be back for #13. I cannot wait for the premiere on AcornTV. IMHO, this show is SO MUCH BETTER then most of stuff on television in the US right now. Thank you CBC & Shaftsberry for giving something to look forward to, once those lazy days of summer come to an end.
    A. The kids go back to school & B. Murdoch, Fall of 2019 !

  10. I love Murdoch mysteries. Best show on TV. Love seeing episodes filmed in Galt. I lived there. A few episodes filmed a few blocks from the house my daughter was born in. Kids have been excited to see places they have played as little ones on the show.

  11. I lived downtown Galt when they were filming season 10.. I went to watch and got talking to some diehard fans..I told them I hadn’t seen it. She said YOU’VE GOT TO WATCH IT. So I went home and binge watched 9 seasons..I was hooked..one of the best and my most favourite shows..I hope it goes for a few more years..
