Universal TV Sets February UK Premiere Date For ‘Burden of Truth’ Season 2
Universal TV has set a February UK premiere date for the 2nd Season of Kristin Kreuk’s ‘Burden of Truth’ the channel has announced.
Season 1 followed Kristin Kreuk (‘Smallville’, ‘Beauty and the Beast’) as fast-rising corporate attorney Joanna Hanley who returns to her small hometown of Millwood – a prairie town with an industrial past and uncertain future – to represent a major client in a case against some sick high school girls. However, once there, and seeing the plight of the girls, she teams up with local lawyer Billy Crawford (Peter Mooney – ‘Rookie Blue’, ‘Camelot’), and switches sides to battle her old firm for justice.
In Season 2, Joanna finds herself at a top law office in Winnipeg ready to make a fresh start away from her previous firm and Millwood. There, a new client draws her into the shadowy world of hackers, activists, and a political movement that won’t take any prisoners. The case leads Joanna through many twists and turns, until she eventually becomes a killer’s target. Her estranged father tries to assist her, which leads to an event that will change both their lives forever.
Meanwhile, Millwood’s lifeblood has been left depleted following the bankruptcy of the mill. With rising unemployment rates, tensions in town are running high, leaving Billy to retreat further away from town, but when his reckless brother Shane (Andrew Chown – ‘Beauty and the Beast’, ‘Reign‘) shows up, Billy is forced to confront childhood memories.
Season 2 also introduces new cast members including Michelle Nolden (‘Saving Hope’, ‘Republic of Doyle’) as Teddie Lavery, Joanna’s mentor and boss at Steadman Lavery; Varun Saranga (‘Wynonna Earp’, ‘Carter’) as Joanna’s new client, Noah; and Raymond Ablack (‘Orphan Black’) as Sunil Doshi, a young lawyer at Steadman Lavery.
‘Burden of Truth’ Season 2 premieres Thursday, 7th February 2019 at 9pm on Universal TV.
