Kirstine Stewart, general manager of CBC Television, is pleased to announce that the critically-acclaimed series BEING ERICA is back for a third season this fall. The new season will feature thirteen one-hour episodes. The popular relationship drama with a time travel twist stars Gemini Award-winner Erin Karpluk as Erica Strange, a young woman on a one-of-a-kind quest through past and present to come to terms with life and relationships.
“BEING ERICA resonates in a special way with CBC’s viewers,” said Stewart. “We have found a shining star in Erin Karpluk, whose portrayal of Erica is real, relatable and endearing.”
Winning the hearts of CBC viewers since its series debut in 2009, BEING ERICA is also capturing audiences south of the border. Simultaneously announced today is the third season pick up by SOAPnet, the Disney/ABC Television Group’s 24-hour soap opera channel with over 75 million household subscribers. BEING ERICA is one of SOAPnet’s most popular series. To date, BEING ERICA has aired in 38 countries worldwide.
Season two left Erica with no boyfriend, no job and a personal life in shambles. In season three, we find a newly single, more confident Erica on the path to forging a new identity for herself as she becomes the person she’s always wanted to be. Popular returning characters include Dr. Tom (Michael Riley), Erica’s ex-boss and new business partner Julianne (Reagan Pasternak), mother Barbara (Kathleen Laskey), father Gary (John Boylan) and sister Samantha (Joanne Douglas).
BEING ERICA is a Temple Street production in association with CBC Television. Created by Jana Sinyor, executive producers are Aaron Martin, Jana Sinyor, Ivan Schneeberg and David Fortier.
