Global Renews Original Series Private Eyes Following a Hugely Successful First Season
From Entertainment One, the #1 New Series of the Summer Goes Back into Production for 18 Episodes
Toronto, Canada – Following a blockbuster first season that averaged over 1 million viewers (Ind. 2+) per episode, Global’s breakout hit and #1 new series of the summer, Private Eyes is renewed for a second season. The series, from leading independent studio Entertainment One (eOne), has received an impressive 18 episode order, with production set to begin in Toronto this fall.
The Canadian original detective drama follows the P.I. powerhouse duo, Matt Shade (Jason Priestley) and Angie Everett (Cindy Sampson) as they lead Everett Investigations together and test each other both professionally and personally. At the end of Season 1, Angie offers Shade a full and equal partnership in the agency. However, with Shade intent on putting his stamp on Everett Investigations, will Angie live to regret this new arrangement? And will they be able to navigate their complicated – but undeniable – romantic attraction? Only time will tell.
“Private Eyes was an instant success for Global audiences and we are thrilled to welcome back a second season,” said Maria Hale, Senior Vice President, Global Entertainment and Content Acquisition, Corus. “We look forward to seeing what’s next for Shade and Angie as their relationship continues to evolve.”

We are so grateful to the fans and excited to deliver a tremendous sophomore season that will keep them all hooked.”
