Two days ago, it was revealed that production began on the second season of the Canadian TV series The Listener. Now, Shaftesbury Films, the production company behind the show, has revealed new details about what viewers should expect about The Listener's second season. In a nutshell, expect to see new characters and new things for the leading characters to deal with.
The new faces joining the regular cast will be Lauren Lee Smith (CSI: Crime Scene Investigation), Tara Spencer Nairn (Corner Gas) and Sebastien Roberts (Canada Russia ‘72).
In the second season of The Listener, Toby Logan (Craig Olejnik), a paramedic from Toronto, has kept his habit of getting his nose in criminal investigations when he's not on the job with his partner Oz Bey (Ennis Esmer). This leads Toby to get into a case investigated by Integrated Investigations Bureau (IIB) of the Royal Canadian Mounted Police (RCMP), Canada's federal police. Obviously, Toby has no other choice but to reveal his telepathic gift to Sgt. Michelle McCluskey (Lauren Lee Smith). Despite her scepticism, Michelle will come to think that Toby's gift is an asset for the IIB. Therefore, while still being a paramedic, Toby is enlisted as a collaborator with the IIB. There, he joins Michelle and her team made of computer expert Corp. Dev Clark (Rainbow Sun Francks) and Alvin Klein (Peter Stebbings), an in-house legal expert specialized on complicated investigation cases.
As for Tara Spencer Nairn and Sebastien Roberts, they will both play characters who will revolve more around Dr. Olivia Fawcett (Mylène Dinh-Robic). While Spencer Nairn will play a triage nurse, Roberts, on the other hand, will play Dr. Shane Lawson, a neurosurgeon who develops feelings for Olivia.
