Burden of Truth is a serialised, investigative legal drama for CBC in Canada and The CW in the U.S.. Each season, the series follows Joanna Chang (Kristin Kreuk), a ruthless, big-city corporate lawyer as she tackles high profile cases with ties to her small hometown of Millwood. Alongside her former high school classmate Billy Crawford (Peter Mooney, Rookie Blue, Heroes Reborn), Joanna fights for her clients whilst also unearthing dark secrets from her past.
The third season of Burden of Truth sees Joanna and Billy working together at their new boutique law firm, Crawford Chang. When an old friend abruptly re-enters Joanna’s life in desperate need of help, Joanna must take on an impossible to-win case and confront a long-buried secret from her childhood that may threaten her relationship and partnership with Billy. After this case, nothing will be the same again.
Season 3 launched to ratings success on CBC in Canada, seeing year on year growth across all commercial demographics and outperforming the slot average for Adults 18-34 by +350%.
