Returning: Coroner

Season 3 of Canadian drama comes to Universal in May.

Season 3 of Canadian drama Coroner, starring Serinda Swan as a recently widowed coroner comes to Universal in May.

This premiered internationally in January.

Everybody has a story. Inspired by the best-selling series of books by M.R. Hall and created by Morwyn Brebner (Saving Hope, Rookie Blue), Coroner is a character-driven, close-ended episodic drama about Dr. Jenny Cooper-a recently widowed, new coroner who investigates suspicious, unnatural or sudden deaths in Toronto.

Reflecting the rich diversity of the city, each death brings Jenny into a new arena and sparks on buzzworthy themes. Jenny taps into her intuition as much as her intellect and heart as she solves cases with the help of homicide detective Donovan McAvoy, a man who isn’t afraid of challenging the status quo; pathologist Dr. Dwayne Allen and his assistant River Baitz; and Alison Trent, Jenny’s assistant who keeps it real. And while Jenny solves mysterious deaths, she also deals with clinical anxiety and her teenage son, Ross, who is still grieving the death of his father, and the prospect of starting a new relationship with the enigmatic Liam. Everybody has a story-and Jenny must figure out the story her own body is telling.

Saturday 8th May at 7:30pm on Universal.

  1. Universal waited 9 months to show S2 in Australia, for S3 they are only waiting 3 months.

    Inspired by the books is stretching it a bit. They used one element of the first book as the season long arc for S1, but didn’t do much with it. The case of the week stories, setting and characters have nothing to do with the books about a divorced laywer who becomes the coroner of a small town in Devon.

    The BBC’s The Coroner was a about a divorced lawyer who becomes coroner of a small town Devon, but they didn’t use the name, any of the other characters or any of the stories from the books and claimed it had nothing to do with them. The BBC cancelled it after 2 seasons once Hall complained though.
