The CW has acquired Family Law as one of their Canadian imports and we now have a premiere date.
Family Law is a witty, heartfelt look at the trials and tribulations of an imperfect family. The one-hour legal drama follows Abigail ‘Abby’ Bianchi (Jewel Staite) as she navigates her new life with her family including Abby’s father Harry Svensson (Victor Garber), her half- brother Daniel Svensson (Zach Smadu), and half-sister Lucy Svensson (Genelle Williams).
Earlier this year and after The CW picked up the first season, Global renewed the show for a third season.
Third Season Renewal
“As the most-watched new Canadian series this past fall and with the recent acquisition by The CW in the U.S., we are thrilled that Abby and the Svensson family will keep entertaining audiences at home and abroad for seasons to come, with this renewal today, we continue to build Corus’ commitment to creating original Canadian content and compelling storytelling that reflects the lives and interests of Canadians as well as audiences around the world.”
Lisa Godfrey, Senior Vice President of Original Content and Corus Studios.
Lauded as “the unexpected drama worth bingeing right now,” Canadian viewers can catch up on Season 1 with STACKTV and the Global TV App.
SEVEN24 Films (JANN) and Lark Productions (Motive) produce Family Law. Susin Nielsen (Robson Arms)created the show and also serves as executive producer and showrunner. The series is executive produced by Jordy Randall, Tom Cox, Erin Haskett and Andy Mikita
The CW has a habit of acquiring a number of imported shows like Burden Of Truth which starred Krisin Kreuk. Other shows imported include Coroner (Canada), Devils (England/Italy) and Leonardo (Italy).
The legal drama consists of ten one hour episodes. It will premiere on The CW on Sunday 2 October 2022 at 8PM EST.
