A true gem on Netflix, the ten-episode Canadian series, based in Boston, Northern Rescue starring William Baldwin in the lead, dropped its season finale in March 2019. Since then fans have been eagerly waiting to know when the next season of this series would be available for streaming. But so far, neither CBC nor Netflix has confirmed anything about a new season or renewal of Northern Rescue. The first season of this intense family drama series ends without answering all questions leaving fans on the edge. Northern Rescue Season 2 release date details we covered in this article.
Northern Rescue is an emotional family drama series. The story follows a family who has just had an irreparable loss- the death of a family member, and the struggles that follow soon.
The show is not a Netflix original. It was aired on CBC gem ( a Canadian streaming service) and Netflix on the very same day. Throughout the series, John tries his best to protect his adolescent children and it seems like almost always his life is on the line.
While there is no news regarding the renewal of Northern Rescue Season 2, there are several burning questions or doubts that have been left behind with the season finale of Season 1
Season Finale Ending
There are loose threads that have been left behind along with the ending of Northern Rescue Season 1. The show if finally renewed for its new season, could easily pick up from here and go on to develop a further interesting story-
Charlie comes to know a shocking truth about her boyfriend which makes her realize he can do way worse as a human than she imagines, and the season ends with her being sick indicating there might be a new life on the way, which further complicates situations for Charlie.
Scout’s relationship seems to be hanging on the edge of the cliff, as this season ends.
Maddie learns that John is not her biological father. The series ends with her leaving a note for her sister.
What makes things even worse is the fact that even after the members of the West family move on with their lives putting behind all of their differences with each other, the story still goes on, almost as if the series has been stretched out just so that there is more scope for future seasons of Northern Rescue season 2. The questions that have been left unanswered and the doubts that have been installed into the minds of fans, by the end of season 1, could have easily been all addressed to in that very season, and Northern Rescue Season 1 could have been wrapped up well, without leaving any rough edges, giving devoted fans of the show their deserved satisfaction without having to eagerly wait for months, or even more than that.
Is Northern Rescue going to be renewed for Season 2?
Some series, no matter the amount of popularity they receive seem to remain at a standstill when it comes to the renewal of the show, and Northern Rescue season 2 definitely seems to be one of them.
Leaving behind several awaiting fans and unfinished plot lines to pick up from, the series has a great advantage to go on with a new season. But so far, despite positive reviews and a devoted fanbase, neither CBC nor Netflix has decided to renew Northern Rescue for its season 2. It has been more than a year now, after its initial release, and the silence of the producers and the crew members of the show puts the series in a very uncertain position, almost making it look like it is very little, if not all probability that the show might as well have ended just with the first season.
Although Northern Rescue isn’t a weak family drama series, its release did not quite cause a hype among serial binge-watchers unlike series like You, Money Heist, The Umbrella Academy, etc. whose release totally stirred up the internet altogether. Therefore Northern Rescue season 2 is pretty much an undiscovered gem with a not so huge fanbase. Situations like this also do raise the question regarding this show’s future and doubts about if this has anything to do with the silence of the show when it comes to the revival of a new season.
Northern Rescue Season 2 release date
Unless there is any news regarding the very awaited second season, there is somewhat uncertainty revolving around the cast for Season 2, although in all probability even if the drama series is renewed for its next season, they would not change its cast, given that the entire first season was all about a particular family and it looks like they are not yet over with all their problems. Though of course there might be the addition of more names in the cast, as it happens with most dramas. The main cast of season 1 of Northern Rescue included- William Baldwin, Taylor Thorne, Kathleen Robertson, Spencer Macpherson, and Amalia Williamson.
Billy Baldwin who plays the role of the lead character in Northern Rescue, in February 2020, had responded to a fan’s question on Twitter, regarding the matter of renewal of the show saying that he has no idea about the release of the second season.
Is Maddie going to run away trying to discover who her real parents are? What happens to Charlie? What other problems are the West family about to face? Numerous questions are hanging from the thread in the open. One can only hope as of now to get all these answers, with the renewal of a new season of this tragic thriller show.
The future of Northern Rescue Season 1 looks pretty much bleak with absolutely no news regarding revival or any kind of pre-development of the show. There have been several rumors revolving around the show being canceled but neither of them has been confirmed either through any kind of official statement.
Ultimately if CBC decides to not go with the renewal process, Netflix might have to take up the responsibility and try to pick up the bits left behind from the first season and make its best out of it. As for now, the first season of Northern Rescue season 2 will available on Netflix for streaming and you should definitely give it a watch if you have not yet, especially if you are up for an emotional ride!
