CBC’s Moonshine to Return for Season Two


The Canadian dramedy Moonshine, produced by Entertainment One (eOne) and Six Eleven Media, is set to return for a second season on CBC in fall 2022.

Created by Sheri Elwood (Lucifer, Call Me Fitz), Moonshine follows the Finley-Cullens, a dysfunctional clan of adult half-siblings battling for control of their family business. The finale of season one aired last week, and the entire season can now be streamed on CBC Gem.

The new season will see Allan Hawco (Republic of Doyle, Caught, Frontier, Tom Clancy’s Jack Ryan, Another Life) join the cast. Guest stars will include Jonathan Silverman (Weekend at Bernie’s), Shelley Thompson (Trailer Park Boys), Jonathan Torrens (Mr. D), Leigh Ann Rose (The Young and the Restless), Ernie Grunwald (Call Me Fitz), Joe Cobden (The Sinner) and Kirstin Howell (Diggstown).

Moonshine is a passion project, and I’m thrilled by this early vote of confidence from CBC,” said Elwood, who is also showrunner and director. “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.”

Jocelyn Hamilton, president for Canada at eOne Television, said, “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. 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.”

“We are hard at work to deliver another exciting season of Moonshine for CBC, and we’re delighted to be able to shoot in our home province of Nova Scotia with our incredible cast and crew led by the incomparable Sheri Elwood,” added Charles Bishop, executive producer and CEO of Six Eleven Media.
