CBC, a Canadian TV network, announced that Republic of Doyle's second season will premiere January 12 at 9 PM.
The show is a comedy following a private detective, Jake Doyle (Allan Hawco), from St-John's, Newfoundland. In the second season, viewers don't know if Jake's father, Malarchy (Sean McGinley), will come back. Will Christian (Jonathan Goad) return? Can Jake clear him? And are Jake and Leslie (Krystin Pellerin), a constable of the St-John's police department, really over? Is “The One” for Jake gone for good?
Also returning to the Republic are the people that Jake can’t live with — or without: colleague (and defacto stepmother) Rose Miller (Lynda Boyd); vandal turned P.I. apprentice Des Courtney (Mark O’Brien); and enterprising niece Tinny (Marthe Bernard).
