Season 2 of critically-acclaimed The Romeo Section commences principal photography

From a media release:

Haddock Entertainment announced today that production has commenced on Season 2 of the critically-acclaimed espionage crime drama series, The Romeo Section. Created by renowned showrunner Chris Haddock (Intelligence, Da Vinci’s Inquest), the second season will consist of 10 new one-hour episodes in which the players get played, the powerful stumble, and the meek rise to power. As with Season 1, the second season will be filmed entirely in Vancouver, both on location and in studio. Season 2 will premiere this fall on CBC.

The second season of The Romeo Section finds Wolfgang McGee (Andrew Airlie) tasked with a covert investigation into an alleged terrorist incident, leading him into the dark side of intelligence. He calls upon an old acquaintance to assist, a blackballed spy named Norman, , and together they sift through inconsistencies that seem too convenient to be coincidence.

Meanwhile, Wolfgang’s former asset Rufus (Juan Riedinger) uses his new connection with the Red Mountain Triad to become the newest player in Vancouver’s competitive heroin market – the profits from which are being used to finance the latest movie starring Mae Mae (Fei Ren), the wife of the Triad leader, Wing Lei. Elsewhere Lily (Leeah Wong), now a recruit for the Intelligence Service, plays Al (Eugene Lipinski) against another agent to climb the chain of command and prevent her discovery as a double agent.

Returning cast members include Andrew Airlie as Wolfgang (50 Shades of Grey, Cedar Cove); Juan Riedinger as Rufus (Narcos, RL Stine’s The Haunting Hour); Leeah Wong as Lily; Eugene Lipinski as Al (Fringe, Intelligence); and Fei Ren as Mae Mae (Lucifer; Supernatural). Joining the cast this season is Brian Markinson (Mad Men, Charlie Wilson’s War) as Norman, the unapologetic and blackballed former spy.

The first episode of Season 2 is directed by David Frazee while Chris Haddock continues as the series’ showrunner and executive producer. Laura Lightbown, Stephen Surjik, and David Frazee also serve as executive producers, Jesse McKeown is co-executive producer and Arvi Liimatainen is producer.

The Romeo Section Season Finale Preview: A String of Pearls
The Romeo Section wraps up its freshman season Wednesday night with an episode that lays the groundwork if we’re going to get a second year. It’s also a very satisfying conclusion that gives us some closure on the arcs so far this season, even coming full circle — to a degree — on Wolfgang’s original quest. Continue reading.

From Heather M. of The Televixen:

Ian Tracey talks The Romeo Section, Continuum and more
“I’ve kept in contact with Chris over the years in a social kind of way. He’s a man who’d got many irons in the fire all the time and there was talk that he had something going but we didn’t talk specifically about me being in it,” he recalls. “I knew he was probably wanting to start fresh and trying to be a good friend I didn’t press about him about being employed. I found out a little bit into the show that they were interested in me doing a part and of course in a heartbeat I’m going to accept the role. I’m happy to be working on a Chris Haddock project in any capacity.” Continue reading.
