Summer TV on global will officially kick off on May 12.

Canadian original Mary Kills People (eOne, Cameron Pictures) will return to the airwaves at 8 p.m. that night. Its third and final season will play out across six episodes taking place on Sunday nights. The concluding season, which picks up five months after season two’s finale, will follow Dr. Mary Harris as she faces the complications of running a “death retreat.”

Another Canadian original returning to the small screen in May is Private Eyes (eOne). Starting May 29, the third season will kick off following the arrest of private investigator Angie Everett. It will also feature a guest performance from Jann Arden, who is currently starring in her own show on CTV. Private Eyes grew its AMA by 25% year-over-year (and 19% for the 25 to 54 demographic), reaching as high as 1.22 million. Other guest stars on the show will include Gordon Pinsent, Arisa Cox and William Shatner.

The next new season to hit the airwaves is the action series Blood and Treasure. The show premieres with a two-hour episode on Tuesday, May 21 at 9 p.m., before moving to its regular 10 p.m. slot the following week. The serialized drama stars Matt Barr (Sleepy Hollow) and Sofia Pernas (The Brave) as a globe-trotting duo who team up to catch a terrorist who funds his attacks through stolen artifacts.

Also arriving May 29 is The Inbetween, airing Wednesday at 10 p.m. The character-driven drama stars Cassie Bedford (Love Child) who was born with the ability to communicate with the dead and uses that skill to solve murder cases.

Other returning series for the summer are the final season of Elementary (premieres May 23 and airs Thursday at 10 p.m.), the second season of Instinct (premieres June 16 and airs Sundays at 9 p.m.) and game show The Wall (premieres June 20 and airs Thursdays at 8 p.m.)

For special event programming, Meghan and Harry Plus One will air on May 17 at 8 p.m. The one-hour special, which comes to Global from the U.S. (it’s hosted by CBS This Morning co-host Gayle King) will look at the changes in the life of Canadian Meghan Markle since marrying Prince Harry, and the upcoming arrival of their first child.

Another round of summer premieres, including the popular Big Brother Canada, will be announced at a later date.
