Season three of CBC and Temple Street’s original drama  X Company will be its last.

Production on the final season (10 x 60 minutes) of the WWII-set series is currently underway in Budapest, Hungary, where the series will shoot until November. The series is scheduled to air on CBC in Canada in winter 2017.

The original drama is written and created by Mark Ellis and Stephanie Morgenstern. Morgenstern will make her television directorial debut this year, taking her place in the director’s chair for the series’ final two episodes. Morgenstern’s last directorial credit was for the 2001 short film Remembrance, which she co-wrote with Ellis, and which served as the inspiration for the series.

Season three will follow Camp X operatives as they attempt to complete their final covert mission. Series stars Evelyne Brochu, Jack Laskey, Warren Brown, Connor Price, Hugh Dillon, Lara Jean Chorostecki and Torben Liebrecht will all return.

X Company is a Canada-Hungary coproduction, produced by Toronto’s Temple Street and Budapest-based Pioneer Stillking Films and commissioned by the CBC.

Ellis and Morgenstern executive produce the series alongside Temple Street’s Ivan Schneeberg, David Fortier, and Kerry Appleyard and Ostar Productions’ Bill Haber. The series is produced by John Calvert. Ildikó Kemény and David Minkowski of Pioneer Stillking also serve as producers. Sandra Chwialkowska is co-executive producer and Daniel Godwin and Julie Puckrin serve as producers.

Sony Pictures Television distributes the series internationally with broadcasters in France (TF1), Latin America (History), Japan (Mystery), Turkey (D-Smart), Iceland (365 Media), Middle East (MBC), Greece (Mega), Slovenia and Bosnia/Herzegovina (Pickbox).
