Nine recently acquired three seasons of Canadian crime drama Coroner, inspired by the Jenny Cooper book series by author MR Hall.

The series starring has previously aired in Australia on the Universal channel.

It centres around a newly appointed coroner, played by Serinda Swan, who investigates suspicious, unnatural and sudden deaths in Toronto.

James Durie (!), head of scripted at Cineflix Rights, said: “With these latest international sales, Coroner continues to demonstrate its enduring global appeal. We are thrilled to add season four to our growing scripted slate, especially since we already have a lot of interest from buyers whose viewers are keen to continue following the stories of such well-written characters.”

It is yet to be scheduled by Nine and it isn’t clear if it is for a multichannel or a late night slot.

  1. Interesting being on the other side of an international sale. This show has been going for years and will be buried somewhere in the schedule as content filler. Is that the fate bestowed on Aussie dramas sold to international markets?

  2. Monday 7:30pm on Gem, after Wimbledon, would seem likely. They have been running mysteries there ranging from Granchester to Queens Of Mystery from Acorn, one of many shows from 2019 that ended with a cliffhanger and is now in Limbo.

    Coroner while being fairly Covid affected has continued, S4 of Coroner has been announced for 2022 in Canada. By well-written characters they mean a soap opera full of crazy characters with the occasional interesting bit of forensic science.
