CTV’s New Dramatic Thriller Cardinal Anchors Mid-Season Lineup

CTV’s gripping new original series Cardinal arrives on January 25th.

Strategically scheduled in the same timeslot as this fall’s most-watched new series Designated Survivor, Cardinal airs Wednesdays at 10pm on CTV and CTV GO, following a CraveTV FIRST LOOK on Tuesday, January 24th.

The series also airs Thursdays at 9pm beginning January 26th on Super Écran.

From Entertainment One (eOne) and Sienna Films, Cardinal is directed by award-winning Montréal director Daniel Grou, aka Podz (19-2, Minuit Le Soir), Cardinal was adapted for television by Canadian Screen Award-winner Aubrey Nealon (Orphan Black, Saving Hope) from award-winning author Giles Blunt’s John Cardinal Mysteries series. The six-part, bone-chilling drama follows Detective John Cardinal (Billy Campbell, The Killing) on a deadly hunt for a vicious killer in small Northern Ontario town.

Headlining CTV’s action-packed midseason schedule that also includes the return of Masterchef Canada, the final season of Saving Hope, and the series premieres of big-buzz new series Training Day and Time After Time, Cardinal is squarely positioned to kick off the year as one of the most-anticipated drama debuts of the season.
