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.
Did You Know?
The red uniform Constable Brendon Fraser is best known for wearing is called the Red Serge. It is the formal ceremonial dress uniform of the Royal Canadian Mounted Police and in real life is only for special occasions or publicity. However, Fraser is established as a staunch traditionalist and insists on wearing it on duty, in addition to a brown jacketed version for less public duties. It has been playfully noted by fans that when Fraser is in civilian dress, he is simply a good Samaritan private citizen, when in he's in his brown uniform, he is an exceptional police officer. However, when Fraser wears in his full Red Serge uniform, fans notice that he becomes a near-invincible superhero capable of the nigh-impossible in the service of upholding the good. See more
Most of the city scenes are set in Chicago, IL, USA. However, if you watch the street signs you will see 'One Way' and 'Do Not Enter' signs without words on them, which are typical for Canadian cities (due to bilingualism laws worded signs would have to be in English and French). Also, speed limit signs can be seen posted in kilometers/hour instead of miles. See more
