Murdoch Mysteries lives on at CBC

The pubcaster renewed the procedural drama for a 14th season, with star Yannick Bisson telling fans it 'might be a little different' than previous seasons.

CBC has renewed its long-lasting 1890s detective procedural Murdoch Mysteries for its 14th season.

The renewal was first announced by star Yannick Bisson on the What’re you At? With Tom Power show on Sunday night (May 10). “Yes, we are coming back, and yes, it might be a little different,” said Bisson during the announcement, noting that the series’ writers are already at work on the new season. “We don’t know exactly when, but we have the commitment and we are gearing up for season 14.”

A representative at CBC confirmed the renewal to Playback Daily and noted that additional details, including the season’s episode order, will be announced at a later date.

Murdoch Mysteries is produced by Shaftesbury, with Christina Jennings, Scott Garvie and showrunner Peter Mitchell serving as executive producers. The series stars Bisson, Hélène Joy, Jonny Harris and Thomas Craig.

Ratings for season 13 peaked at an average audience of more than 1.1 million for the series’ 200th episode.

CBC recently renewed its comedy Workin’ Moms for a fifth season, with creator and star Catherine Reitman on-hand to announce the renewal on Powers’ show.
