CORUS ENTERTAINMENT ANNOUNCES 2017/18 SPECIALTY LINEUP WITH A DYNAMIC RANGE OF POWERHOUSE PROGRAMMING AND PERENNIAL FAVOURITES

ENTERTAINMENT

Bolstering Showcase’s outstanding lineup is the captivating new fall series, The Sinner. Also debuting this fall, gripping new scripted drama Absentia stars Canadian Stana Katic (Castle). Then, based on the comic book series, the all-new drama for 2018 is Marvel’s Runaways. Also finding a home on the network is the fourth season of the Golden Globe-winning series Transparent. Signature hits returning to Showcase this fall include: season two of Travelers, the third season of the suspenseful Golden Globe-winning hacker series Mr. Robot and season three of Supergirl.

HISTORY celebrates its 20th anniversary this year with intriguing titles and the previously announced new, original series Bud Dynasty and Hunting Nazi Treasure. New fall series Knightfall chronicles the mysterious but true accounts of the Knights Templar. The corruption and bloodshed culminate later this year with the season five premiere of this year’s #1 Specialty Entertainment program Vikings.

Following the successful launch of The Bachelorette Canada on W Network, The Bachelor Canada debuts this fall. The long-awaited third season of Outlander finds a new home on W Network. New serialized military drama and conspiracy thriller Valor stars Matt Barr and Christina Ochoa. The fourth season of Mozart in the Jungle debuts this year, followed by powerful new seasons of hit dramas The Good Fight, Nashville, and Imposters.

This summer, ABC Spark, Corus’ millennial-focused network and home to hit dramas The Fosters and BEYOND, debuts new series The Bold Type. Also slated to premiere on the network in 2018 are Marvel’s Cloak & Dagger and college-ish.

LIFESTYLE

Following a show-stopping All-Stars edition, Top Chef Canada returns in spring 2018 for a sixth season to Food Network Canada, as a new crop of the country’s most talented chefs go knife-to-knife in demanding culinary challenges. New series The Baker Sisters takes viewers on a guilt-free road trip to sample mouth-watering sweets from some of the best bakeries in North America; the one-hour special Bake It Possible! crowns the champion of Pillsbury and Betty Crocker’s epic baking contest; and Canadian Screen Award-nominated celebrity chef Anna Olson showcases her baking mastery in a new season of Bake with Anna Olson. Two brand new series this year feature iconic Guy Fieri and Duff Goldman, respectively in Guy’s Family Road Trip and in Dessert Games. Also new this fall is Bakers vs. Fakers, where amateur bakers show off their sweet skills and compete against professional chefs, and a new season of Worst Cooks In America: Celebrity Edition.

HGTV Canada’s heavy-hitting hosts Mike Holmes and Scott McGillivray bring inspiring new series to the schedule this year. In the new fall series Holmes: Buy It Right, Mike Holmes applies his construction expertise and creative vision to help people search for their dream home. Also coming this fall is the new, breakout hit series Home Town, which premiered to record audiences on HGTV this spring in the U.S. Debuting in spring 2018 is new series Buyers Bootcamp. Two brand-new and several returning hit Canadian original series join the HGTV Canada schedule this year. Sarah Off the Grid and Worst to First. New episodes of Property Brothers and Property Brothers: Buying and Selling also debut this fall, followed by brand new seasons of Bryan Inc. and Canadian Screen Award-nominated Masters of Flip later this year.

Coming soon to Lifetime, critically-acclaimed series UnREAL starring Shiri Appleby continues to push the limits with its highly anticipated season three premiere.

KIDS

At the helm of its powerful, family-friendly suite of children’s networks is YTV. The Zone, YTV’s flagship after-school programming block kicks back weekdays from 4 p.m.– 6 p.m. ET/PT with countless new episodes of the most popular animated Nickelodeon series including SpongeBob SquarePants and The Loud House, followed by primetime family viewing with new episodes of Nickelodeon’s best live-action series Nicky, Ricky, Dicky and Dawn, Henry Danger, Hunter Street, and Game Shakers. New original series added to YTV’s 2017/18 schedule include Mysticons (Nelvana) and ReBoot: The Guardian Code.

Treehouse, Canada’s #1 preschool network (K2-6), ushers in fall with new episodes of the popular Nickelodeon series Rusty Rivets, and new episodes of the dynamic duo, Max & Ruby.

Animation domination continues on TELETOON with new seasons and episodes of beloved Cartoon Network series such as Ben 10, Amazing World of Gumball, We Bare Bears, and Steven Universe. Plus, this fall, new series Hotel Transylvania: The Series joins the action-packed weekend morning lineup on TELETOON.

Corus continues to bring the magic of Disney to families every day with its robust roster of new series and returning hits. The two fastest-growing kids networks in Canada, Disney Channel and Disney Junior, set the stage with highly-anticipated premieres. Disney Channel kicks off summer with the premiere of the Disney Channel Original Movie Descendants 2 and the return of everyone’s favourite psychic in the new series, Raven’s Home. Rounding out the schedule are new seasons from the coming-of-age series Andi Mack and brave new heroine, Elena of Avalor. Disney Junior welcomes an unusual but friendly face to its lineup with the new preschool series Vampirina. Then, the franchise-classic DuckTales returns to Disney XD in a new series starring David Tennant and Lin-Manuel Miranda.

Wonder why they would start with the fourth season of Transparent and Mozart in the Jungle?I haven't seen either series but there would obviously be a lot of plot holes wouldn't there?

It could be that the rights to past seasons aren't available to Corus now that Amazon Prime Video is available in Canada or they might be too expensive for old seasons. Corus may have decided that most people that wanted to see past seasons had already seen them on shomi. There is always the possibility that Corus may run marathons of past seasons, but that's unlikely for 3 past seasons each.

If Prime is available now in Canada wouldn't that also negate getting the fourth season as well ?Perhaps you're right and Amazon thinks that by letting people see the fourth season they'll want to subscribe to Amazon Prime for the first three.Still seems strange to me. I'll check them out anyways.

Amazon has an international distribution deal with Sony Pictures Television for those 2 series which predates Amazon's launch into Canada, so Amazon may be forced to give up the Canadian rights to the current season if a TV channel agrees to pick it up. It's also possible that the Corus licence isn't exclusive. In other words, Corus has the linear TV rights and Amazon retains the streaming rights.

See this post for shomi's announcement:
Rogers and Shaw Launching SHOMI streaming video

I also found this interesting post in the Amazon thread:

I checked on JustWatch.com and all 3 seasons of both shows are now on Amazon, so maybe shomi's rights expired.
