American fans of the TV series Durham County no longer need to come to Canada to buy the second season on DVD. In fact, the second season of this Canadian TV series will be released on DVD on November 23. Moreover, the third season of Durham County will premiere on HBO Canada, a Canadian premium cable network, on October 25.
The show takes place in a fictitious suburb of Toronto called Durham County. After the events of the first season, Det. Mike Sweeney (Hugh Dillon) got promoted; Ray Prager (Romano Orzari) is in prison because of his murder attempt on Sadie (Laurence Leboeuf), Mike's daughter; and Sadie is still reeling from her traumatizing encounter with Ray. As the second season begins, we're only a few days before Ray Prager appears in court. However, Mike's personal life isn't going the way he wants. As Mike tries to keep his family together, his wife, Audrey (Helen Joy) is seeking a divorce. No wonder Mike, while he's at work, cheats on his wife by sleeping with Dr. Peneloppe Verity (Michelle Forbes), a forensic psychiatrist with dark secrets and, above all, a twisted mind hidden behind an armour of lucidity.
The second season also stars Greyston Holt, Patrick Labbé, Cicely Austin, Claudia Ferri, Mike Dopud, Geordie Johnson, Alex Cardillo and Adelina Khamum.
Finally, ION, an American cable network, hasn't confirmed the stateside premiere of the third season of this show created by Laurie Finstad-Knizhnik, Janis Lundman and Adrienne Mitchell.
