CBC has released an exclusive first look at the highly anticipated revival of STREET LEGAL . The highly anticipated series will premiere Monday, March 4, 2019 at 9 p.m. (9:30 NT) on CBC and the CBC Gem streaming service.
STREET LEGAL picks up 25 years after the original series as Olivia Novak, now a partner at a major Bay Street law firm, is beaten to the punch on filing a massive class-action lawsuit by an upstart firm of young social-activist lawyers. Olivia pursues the firm as an acquisition target, but when her own firm goes down in a flame of egos and departing partners, she finds herself starting over at the boutique firm with new younger colleagues.
The reboot of the Canadian series sees Cynthia Dale reprise her role as Olivia Novak, with Cara Ricketts (The Book of Negroes), Steve Lund (Haven) and Yvonne Chapman (The Crossing) joining the series as the next generation of Toronto lawyers fighting the good fight. Original cast members Eric Peterson (“Leon Robinovitch”) and Anthony Sherwood (“Dillon Beck”) are also confirmed to return for special guest appearances.
