Arctic Air is coming back for a second season.
The Canadian adventure-drama series Arctic Air has been renewed for a second season. The show, which airs on CBC, is centered on a Yellowknife-based maverick airline.
The first season of Arctic Air was watched by the largest audience for a new CBC drama series in 15 years. According to a press release, it premiered to more than 1.2 million viewers in January and then drew an average audience of 965,000 viewers each week.
Over the course of the first season almost 7.3 million viewers tuned in to some part of the program, according to the CBC. That is about 22% of the population or about 1 in 5 Canadians.
“With a star-studded cast, stunning aerial footage and the incredible natural beauty of the Northwest Territories, we were confident that Canadians would make Arctic Air fly high. This is a terrific achievement and we congratulate everyone involved with the production of this outstanding show, »
- Michael Simpson
Arctic Air premieres at 9 pm on CBC tonight. A bunch of Caprica and BSG actors are either regulars or recurring guest stars: Carmen Moore, Michael Hogan, Leah Gibson, Kandyse McClure, Brian Markinson and Aleks Paunovic. There might be more of them as the season progresses.
Here is the plotline, from the show's Facebook page:
Arctic Air is a one-hour adventure series set in the booming Arctic, about a maverick airline and the unconventional family who runs it.
On the ground, Bobby, the headstrong business partner, struggles to save the airline from crashing financially while Mel, the cantankerous co-owner, keeps his crew of pilots in the air. Caught in the crossfire is Mel’s hotshot pilot daughter Krista. (...)
Over the season this character-based drama will deliver hard-hitting emotional stories – from the romantic entanglement of Bobby and Krista, to the conflicts that spark between Bobby and his competitors, his business partners and even his extended family. »
