A cable drama that has been generating buzz among critics will be back for a third season. Bravo announced today that it picked up season three of “19-2.”
The Canadian-made police drama — the title represents Patrol Car Unit 2 at the fictional Station 19 — has been well-received by critics and has chalked up a number of Canadian Screen Awards nominations, with a win for lead actor Jared Keeso.
Production on season three is set to begin this summer in Montreal, with Keeso and Adrian Holmes back in their lead roles. Ten one-hour episodes have been ordered from Sphere Media Plus and Echo Media.
The show has reportedly been Bravo’s top-performing original series, averaging 3.3 million viewers.
In a press release announcing the pickup, critic Bill Brioux of The Canadian Press is quoted writing in advance of the show’s second season: “Critics and viewers who believe Canada doesn’t have its own Golden Age shows will want to watch the second season premiere of ’19-2.’”
