The third and fourth seasons of "Due South" pick up shortly after the first two left off. Fraser returns to Chicago, to find a blond has assumed Ray Vecchio's identity, and everyone just seems to accept it but him. Fraser and his new partner (real name Stanley Raymond Kowalski) soon find level ground to agree on, and work together to solve crimes on the mean streets of Chicago. Written by
Did You Know?
In its third season, when the show moved from CBS to first-run syndication, the new production company wanted the premise inserted into the opening titles, so first-time viewers wouldn't wonder what a Canadian Mountie was doing in Chicago. Paul Gross
opted to include the premise in each episode, with "I first came to Chicago on the trail of the killers of my father, and for reasons that don't need exploring at this juncture, I've remained, attached as liaison with the Canadian Consulate." It became a running gag throughout the third season, as the writers found different ways to insert the line into almost each script, whether it was spoken by Fraser or other characters. See more
Throughout the series, Fraser is shown standing outside an ornate building described as the Canadian Consulate. In fact, the Chicago branch of the Consulate General of Canada is located on the 24th floor of the Prudential Building, which is a glass and steel building without the ornate entrance portrayed.
