Spring is in full swing, with summer right around the corner. And with the coming of blooming flowers, the buzz of lawn mowers and the slap of flip-flops on tarmac comes a handful of returning Canadian television series.
Be it the light sleuthing on Private Eyes, the badassery of sci-fi via Killjoys and Wynonna Earp, the hilarity of Baroness Von Sketch Show or the all-out scramble that is The Amazing Race Canada, summer TV has a lot to offer.
To celebrate, we’re asking you to check off the three returning television series you’re most looking to watching in the coming months. Have fun, and cheers to a great summer!
Now that CBC has revealed its lineup for the upcoming fall and winter, the 2017-18 broadcast season is beginning to take shape. Yes, Rogers, Corus and Bell Media have yet to announce their primetime lineups, but we already know several programs that won’t be returning next year.
With that in mind, we’d like your opinion on the three Canadian television series you’ll miss most. Some have aired for the last time while others—like Saving Hope, 19-2 and Orphan Black—take their final bow in the coming weeks. Let us know your votes and feel free to make your thoughts known in the comments section below.

It’s February. The time of the year when snow and cold temperatures cause us to get a little grumpy and burrow down a little deeper into our warm beds or pull those blankets a little tighter around us.
Luckily, we’ve got plenty of new Canadian television series to keep us entertained. No fewer than eight programs have bowed since January 1. Whether its tow truck drivers helping get traffic moving in Heavy Rescue: 401, small-town murder in Cardinal, doctor-assisted suicide in Mary Kills People, drug-running Mennonites in Pure or the struggles of motherhood via Workin’ Moms, there’s plenty to love this winter.
