This thread will discuss the schedule updates for the CBC broadcast network and their specialty channels.

I post schedule updates, series premieres and specials based on press releases as well as series renewals and cancellations as they are announced. I don't usually post on-going episode information, repeats, program descriptions or "PR-speak," so if you want more info, you can click on the associated link.

CBC Gem Streaming Service and CBC Listen free audio streaming service have their own threads.

CBC showed season 1 of Pure, but decided not to pick up season 2. Super Channel picked up the rights for both seasons and is still showing them in reruns. I guess they had the season 2 exclusive for a year and it will now be available on both channels.

Wow that is interesting that CBC has renewed Trickster when it hasn't even started yet!

That's good news about Coroner we'll look forward to that.

We don't watch Heartland much but I know its popular.

The promo's for War Of The Worlds seems interesting? In the last 1movie(1950's) and a series several Years ago where invaders from Mars, the Tom Cruise movie never really mention where they where from.

I'm wondering in this version where the aliens are from and what they look like?
