Transporter – The Series Returns on The Movie Network and Movie Central

The Movie Network and Movie Central recently announced the return of their hit show “Transporter – The Series,” which will air in October.

Frank Martin returns to deliver the package at any cost when the show gears back into action for its second season. Premiering on Sunday, October 5th, new episodes of the 12-part, one-hour original drama series transport audiences across the globe, from historic Prague to Morocco’s Sahara Desert to the streets of Toronto.

The series is based on award-winning director’s “Transporter” film franchise, “Transporter – The Series” is a France/Canada international co-production produced by Atlantique Productions and QVF Inc. in association with broadcast partners The Movie Network, Movie Central, and Super Écran in Canada, and M6 in France.

The first season of “Transporter – The Series” was the most-watched Canadian series on HBO Canada and the #3 Canadian Pay series overall in 2013. Filmed in Morocco, the Czech Republic and Toronto, the second season follows Frank Martin (Chris Vance, “Prison Break,” “Dexter”) around the world as he delves deep into danger and mystery to deliver a diverse range of packages, from pop princesses to priceless paintings. As an ex-Special Forces operative, Frank has acquired the driving, fighting, and survival skills to make his deliveries on schedule, and never quits until he’s reached his final destination. In the season opener, Frank must protect and safely deliver a 12-year-old boy to a Rome courthouse to testify against his father’s killer.

Joining the cast this season are Canadian actor Mark Rendall (“30 Days of Night”) as Jules Faroux, a computer and mechanical whiz, and Italian actress Violante Placido (“The American”), as Caterina Boldieu, a former French intelligence officer who works for Frank as a strategist and risk assessor. Returning cast members include François Berléand (“Jusqu’ici Tout Va Bien”) who reprises his role from the “Transporter” film franchise as Inspector Tarconi, a police inspector in Nice and Frank’s contact inside the system, and Charly Hübner (“Unter Nachbarn”) as Dieter Haussmann, Frank’s friend, confidante and the mastermind mechanic who outfits Frank’s car with the state-of-the art technology needed to get his jobs done.

“Transporter – The Series” airs two back-to-back episodes on Sunday, October 5th at 9pm on The Movie Network (Eastern Canada) and Movie Central (Western Canada).
