Bomb Girls, set in 1941, focuses on four women working in a Canadian munitions factory during World War II. It tells the remarkable stories of the women who risked their lives building bombs for the Allied forces fighting on the European front. The series delves into the lives of these exceptional women who find themselves thrust into new worlds and how they are changed profoundly as they are liberated from their home and social restrictions. Originally conceived as a six-part mini-series, Bomb Girls went on to have a respectable 18 episodes over its two year run. That is the originally planned 6 episodes ran in 2012, then 12 more episodes were ordered and aired in 2013. Following its cancellation in April 2013 there was enough demand to warrant production of a made-for-television movie titled Bomb Girls: Facing the Enemy, which aired some 11 months after the last series episode. Bomb Girls also ran in the United States, the United Kingdom, Ireland and Poland.
Like all series, beyond the Main Cast and Supporting Cast there is a long list of actors who only appeared in 1 episode of Bomb Girls. We credit them on their individual pages, but not on the series page.
