Global announces a hot new summer lineup loaded with hit original series, fresh content, and big reality TV

From a media release:

Today Global unveiled its 2021 scorching summer lineup packed with homegrown original scripted hits, an intriguing new drama, fresh summer game shows, and a returning reality juggernaut, that will have viewers entertained all summer long.

This summer kicks off with the Season 2 premiere of original medical drama Nurses, ready to scrub in for 10 new episodes beginning Monday, June 21 at 9 p.m. ET/PT. This season, the five nurses, Grace Knight (Tiera Skovbye), Ashley Collins (Natasha Calis), Keon Colby (Jordan Johnson-Hinds), Nazneen Khan (Sandy Sidhu), and Wolf Burke (Donald Maclean Jr.), return to St. Mary’s for another round of highly dramatic, emotionally charged episodes where they continue to put their patients first. New additions to the team include tough-as-nails nursing manager Kate Faulkner (Rachel Ancheril), who has been shipped in by a new regime to turn the hospital around in the wake of last season’s scandal. Broody and mysterious nurse Matteo Rey (Jordan Connor) struggles to find his place and questions whether he made the right decision to join St. Mary’s. Eternally sunny imaging tech Candy Kemper (Katie Uhlman) also joins, as does Dr. Ivy Turcotte (Humberly Gonzalez) who forms a romantic relationship with one of the nurses and harbours many secrets of her own. With all-new, high-stakes medical cases and romantic entanglements, the five nurses will heroically endeavour to help their patients, while still struggling mightily as they learn how to help themselves. Ahead of the Season 2 premiere, viewers can catch up on the first season of Nurses, now available on Global TV App.

Following the Big Brother premiere on July 7, Season 5 of Global original hit series Private Eyes premieres at a special time 9:30 P.M. ET/PT. Since debuting in 2016, Canada’s favourite detective duo are back on the case for one final season as Global bids a heartfelt farewell to the original hit series. Moving to its regular time slot at 9 p.m. ET/PT beginning Thursday, July 15 on Global, the final season will see Matt Shade (Jason Priestley) and Angie Everett (Cindy Sampson) doing some much needed soul searching after last season’s harrowing cliff-hanger forcing them to examine what – and who – is most important to them. While working on a series of cases helping others discover their truths, Shade and Everett are left to wonder if their truths are ultimately intertwined. New romances and a busy workload will keep them occupied for a while, but will they be able to admit to their growing chemistry?

Also returning for the final season is Shade and Everett’s quirky assistant Zoe Chow (Samantha Wan), along with Detective Danica Powers (Ruth Goodwin), the always entertaining Don Shade (Barry Flatman), as well as Jules Shade (Jordyn Negri), Becca D’Orsay (Nicole DeBoer), and Nora Everett (Mimi Kuzyk). Newcomers to the scene include Everett’s high school frenemy and Shade’s new love interest, Jada Berry (Kandyse McClure), while returning guest stars include the sexy P.I. Tex (Brett Donahue), and an old fan favourite, the hilarious Detective Maz (Ennis Esmer).

  1. Looking forward to Nurses & Private Eyes.
    Hopefully they made some decent casting for Big Brother USA …..but, I won’t hold my breath. HGs should immediately boot anyone in a “showmance.”

  2. What is going on with Departure Season 2? It is not listed on this press release even though a renewal for Season 3 has been announced.

    1. Sorry , I meant this comment to be applied to the fall schedule announcement, not the summer schedule.
