Joining the co-showrunners in the writers room are former Baroness Von Sketch Show lead Jennifer Whalen, Adriana Maggs (Goalie), Ley Lukins (The Detail), Andrew De Angelis (Killjoys), Jillian Locke (Workin’ Moms), Lisa Codrington (Diggstown), Jennifer Irons (Intolerance) and Keavy Lynch (Coroner).

Production on Lady Dicks had been originally scheduled in spring 2020, but was delayed due to the COVID-19 pandemic. Principal photography on the season is set to wrap mid-December. A premiere date on CBC has not been set. NBCUniversal will handle global distribution.
