The CW announced today that it has picked up Burden of Truth for a second season. The Canadian-produced drama premiered in July as part of the network's summer slate and just concluded its freshman run last week.

Kristin Kreuk stars in the series as Joanna Hanley, an up-and-coming corporate attorney who returns to her hometown of Millwood, a prairie town with an industrial past, to represent a major client in a case against a group of sick high school girls. But after winning the case handily, Joanna learns that the girls are actually sicker than previously thought, and stays around to look for answers.

A second season of Burden of Truth on The CW appeared likely, as the drama had already been renewed up north back in April. Look for it to return as part of The CW's summer lineup in 2019.
