The Nova Scotia-made series Pure, which was canned by the CBC  after a single season in 2017, has been resurrected by Super Channel for a six-episode second run due to air in 2019. Pre-production is underway now, with shooting expected to begin in the province later this spring.

Sort of a buttoned-up Weeds, Pure stars Ryan Robbins and Alex Paxton-Beesley as a Mennonite couple pulled into the world of Mexican drug cartels. (It's also the reason you saw Rosie Perez in town circa fall 2016.)
