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.

Interesting to see episodes lengths of some of the series that will air Winter 2022 series extended. 12 episodes for Coroner and Pretty Hard Cases, compared to 10. And 24 episodes for Murdoch Mysteries and This Hour has 22 Minutes, compared to 18 to 20 most years.

I assume this means they won't be airing the Stanley Cup playoffs on CBC in 2022.

I interpreted this differently. There were a lot of series cancellation this year, and to fill the spaces left by these cancellations, CBC ordered more episodes. Murdoch Mysteries starts in the fall and normally ends in March with gaps in the schedule so it could still wrap up by the time NHL playoffs start. The other 2 series of 10 episodes could be moved ahead a couple of weeks in January 2022.

Good catches. With the Winter Games in 2022, that will pause all network programming for 2 to 3 weeks also.

I suppose since it didn't happen last year there is nothing to put on air, but CBC seems to have really gotten away from Just For Laughs. Or is Comedy Network getting rights?

Hmm ... my copy is still on my PVR waiting to be watched. Perhaps I should just delete it.
My advice would be watch ep. 1 & 2 and make up your own mind. I found it dull with only a very thin connection to the H.G. Wells classic. Acting by the way was OK. It's just that the poor folks have been given nothing substantive with which to work.
