Global’s 2021 Summer lineup boasts original scripted hits and an intriguing new drama, fresh summer.
This summer begins with the Season 2 premiere of original series Nurses, beginning Monday, June 21 at 9 p.m. ET/PT. This season, the five nurses return to St. Mary’s for another round of highly dramatic, emotionally charged episodes where they continue to put their patients first. Nurses stars Tiera Skovbye, Natasha Calis, Jordan Johnson-Hinds, Sandy Sidhu, and Donald Maclean Jr.
New additions to the team include tough-as-nails nursing manager Kate Faulkner (Rachel Ancheril), who has been shipped in to turn the hospital around in the wake of last season’s scandal. Broody and mysterious nurse Matteo Rey (Jordan Connor) struggles to find his place at St. Mary’s. Eternally sunny imaging tech Candy Kemper (Katie Uhlman) also joins, as does Dr. Ivy Turcotte (Humberly Gonzalez) who harbours many secrets of her own and gets involved with one of our Nurses.
With all-new, high-stakes medical cases and romantic entanglements, the ﬁve nurses will heroically endeavour to help their patients, while still struggling mightily as they learn how to help themselves. Ahead of the Season 2 premiere, viewers can catch up on the first season of Nurses, now available on Global TV App.
Season 5 of Global original hit series Private Eyes premieres at a special time 9:30 P.M. ET/PT. Since debuting in 2016, Canada’s favourite detective duo are back on the case for one final season as Global bids a heartfelt farewell to the original hit series. Moving to its regular time slot at 9 p.m. ET/PT beginning Thursday, July 15 on Global, the final season will see Matt Shade (Jason Priestley) and Angie Everett (Cindy Sampson) doing some much needed soul searching after last season’s harrowing cliff-hanger forcing them to examine what – and who – is most important to them. While working on cases helping others discover their truths, Shade and Everett wonder if their truths are ultimately intertwined. New romances and a busy workload will keep them occupied for a while, but will they be able to admit to their growing chemistry?
Also returning for the final season is Shade and Everett’s quirky assistant Zoe Chow (Samantha Wan), along with Detective Danica Powers (Ruth Goodwin), the always entertaining Don Shade (Barry Flatman), as well as Jules Shade (Jordyn Negri), Becca D’Orsay (Nicole DeBoer), and Nora Everett (Mimi Kuzyk). Joining the cast is Everett’s school frenemy and Shade’s new love interest, Jada Berry (Kandyse McClure). The sexy P.I. Tex (Brett Donahue), and an old fan favourite, the hilarious Detective Maz (Ennis Esmer) also show up this season.
