Blackstone is back

Prairie Dog Film + Television is pleased to announce that the second season of Blackstone will begin production in Edmonton and rural Alberta on July 18.

 

Following the first season’s cliffhanger finale, Season 2 picks up after the strip club shooting, and continues to delve into the tumultuous lives of the residents on the fictional Blackstone First Nation Reserve. Returning to the screen are cast members Carmen Moore, Eric Schweig, Michelle Thrush, Nathaniel Arcand, Roseanne Supernault, Steven Cree Molison and Andrea Menard. Season 2 will see the addition of the acclaimed Gary Farmer and Tantoo Cardinal to the cast.

 

“We have tremendous talent in Blackstone who bring to life the universal themes and conflicts that so many can relate to,” says Ron E. Scott, who is executive producer, writer and director of Blackstone. “The first season earned a very loyal audience and garnered significant media acclaim, and we expect the second season to be even more riveting and uncompromising.”

 

Intense, compelling and confrontational, Blackstone is an unmuted exploration of power, politics and relationships on a First Nation reserve. The one-hour television drama, which has already won five awards, is unlike any other show in Canadian television.

 

Occasionally, TV shows come along that make us ponder philosophies of entertainment and the new Canadian series Blackstone falls into that category.”  –Toronto Sun

 

“Riveting in-your-face and as smart as Canadian dramatic TV gets.” –Playback
