Bellevue un-cancelled? The crime drama is moving ahead with Season 2, despite missing out on a CBC renewal for the 2017-18 season earlier this week.
Series creator Adrienne Mitchell states that “a Season 2 is being developed this year,” though it wont be “ready to go into production in 2017.”
#BellevueCBC fans! 4 the record a season 2 is being developed this year. Not ready to go into production in 2017. Stay Tuned. Wish us luck.

While the details are vague, it appears that the show is aiming to return in the 2018-19 season, though Season 2 is only being developed (planned/plotted) at this stage, with no guarantee that it will ever be produced/filmed.
Actor Shawn Doyle consolidates that theory:
“We just know [Bellevue Season 2] won’t be part of 2018 lineup on CBC. But stay tuned…

Since there’s no firm production or renewal on the horizon, Bellevue Season 2 remains mired in the cancellation graveyard, albeit with a faint pulse.
Will Bellevue tempt CBC to pick it up for the 2018-19 season? Will the Canadian drama join NBC’s Timeless in the exclusive un-cancelled club? Stay tuned…
