Ici ARTV has renewed the crime series ‘Eaux Turbulentes’ for a third season. The upcoming installment will start shooting in Ottawa, Ontario, on an undisclosed date. The pre-production work for the season will start in April 2024. Marie-Thé Morin and Mathieu Perreault are returning to write the installment with Jim Donovan (’21 Thunder’ and ‘Heartland’) back on board to direct the episodes.
The show revolves around investigator Marianne, who, after a police blunder with far-reaching consequences, returns to her hometown. As soon as she arrives, she is confronted with the urgent task of solving a murder that not only disrupts the community but also puts her own family in turmoil. Marianne throws herself into this intricate affair, determined to untangle the web of mysteries surrounding the case.
The main cast of the series includes Hélène Florent as Marianne Desbiens. She is joined by Gabriel Sabourin (Charles Carignan), Charles Bender (Joe Naveau), Jacob Whiteduck-Lavoie (Billy Desbiens), Eve Ringuette (Rubina Duquette), Bruno Verdoni (Régis Larkin), Michèle Duquet (Nellie Larkin), and Jon-Ethan Rankin Kistabish (Brendon Odjick). Amélie Trottier (Macha Larkin), Andawa Laveau (Thomas Rivers), and Charles Buckell-Robertson (Jason Wabano) also feature in the show. A majority of the main cast members are anticipated to return for the third season. However, an official announcement confirming their involvement is awaited.
Ottawa, the principal location of the French series, previously hosted the production of ‘Would You Kill for Me? The Mary Bailey Story.’ The Lifetime movie revolves around three generations of women conspiring to end a lifetime of abuse from the same man. Another recent Ottawa filmed project, Bradley Walsh’s ‘Catch Me If You Claus,’ follows the story of an aspiring news anchor named Avery Quinn, who encounters a home intruder claiming to be Santa’s son Chris.
