Moonshine: Take 2
by Staff Editors
(November 11, 2021 – Toronto) CBC has announced that production of Season 2 of the east coast Canadian family dramedy series Moonshine has wrapped in Nova Scotia and will premiere in fall 2022. Created by Sheri Elwood and produced by Six Eleven Media and Entertainment One (eOne), the series follows the Finley-Cullens, a dysfunctional clan of adult half-siblings battling for control of their family business – a ramshackle summer campground called The Moonshine.
“Moonshine is a passion project, and I’m thrilled by this early vote of confidence from CBC,” said showrunner, creator and director Elwood. “I’ve never worked with such a brilliant cast, and the more we scratch the surface of this band of eccentric characters, the more I fall in love with them. I can’t wait to show the world how their stories evolve and learn that we all have a little Finley-Cullen magic in us — whether we want it or not.”
Season 2 sees Allan Hawco join the regular cast as biker Gale Favreau, following his steamy meeting with Lidia (Jennifer Finnigan) in the Season 1 finale. Picking up where the first season ends, the second year will include epic dance routines, dirty bingo, snow crab-jacking and a high stakes turf war with a band of outlaw bikers. Fate will manifest very differently for the entire family, with characters fighting their destiny tooth and nail as Lidia goes to extremes to save the business from financial ruin. Guest stars rounding out the cast in Season 2 include Jonathan Silverman, Shelley Thompson, Jonathan Torrens, Leigh Ann Rose, Ernie Grunwald, Joe Cobden, and Kirstin Howell.
“With a narrative expertly crafted by Sheri Elwood, we’re so proud of Moonshine’s ability to captivate audiences with its motley crew of characters navigating family dynamics, set against a stunning Nova Scotia landscape and timeless soundtrack,” said Jocelyn Hamilton, President, Canada, eOne Television. “The pedigree of talent behind and in front of the camera is remarkable, and we’re looking forward to delivering another stellar season of this show to Canadian audiences next year.”
