When nearly three million viewers tuned into CTV for CORNER GAS’ series finale, it was clear that fans weren’t close to their fill of their favourite comedy series. Nor was Michele Sponagle, the nation’s leading authority on CORNER GAS and author of Penguin Canada’s Dog River Confidential: The Even More Super Complete Corner Gas Guide. Available Tuesday, Nov. 10, this follow up to the 2006 blockbuster book Tales from Dog River, showcases Michele Sponagle’s best investigative work as she uncovers the business, the funny business and the magic behind the final two seasons of this iconic series.

“There was a bit of magic to it, for sure,” writes Brent Butt in his foreword. “Who knows, maybe none of us will ever experience that level of magic again in our future work. That’s always the concern when you’ve had something so special. My true and honest comment to that is: ‘Who cares? We had this. And we were able to share it with a hell of a lot of people.”

Months after the ratings topper finale, questions from fans are still pouring in via emails, letters and phone calls.  Will there be a CORNER GAS movie? How did they get all those big-name guest stars to appear in episodes? In Dog River Confidential, Sponagle takes readers behind the scenes of Seasons 4 to 6, uncovering the real-life inspirations that shaped each episode’s storylines through more in-depth interviews, more secrets revealed and more fun trivia facts. The book also takes readers through a heart-felt journey of the emotional last day of shooting the very last episode. Beyond the show, fans get an in-depth look at the impact the success CORNER GAS made on Canadian television. Critics and producers chat about the end of CORNER GAS as an end to an era.

“The stories surrounding CORNER GAS are truly extraordinary,” said Michele Sponagle. “They really deserve to be told, especially now that Corner Gas has become a part of Canadian television history. Because of the amazing response of the first book, I knew that there was still an appetite among the fans to learn even more about the show.”
