The Canadian drama will not return as originally planned.
January 29, 2021
Canadian drama Trickster will not be moving forward with a second season. Original broadcaster CBC announced the cancellation today, which is a result of the controversy around co-creator Michelle Latimer's Indigenous heritage.
The series, which is currently airing its freshman run on The CW, was slated to return for at least one more season. Those plans changed when, last month, Latimer, who had become one of Canada's most-prominent Indigenous filmmakers, could not verify her claims of having ties to an Algonquin community.
Based on the best-selling novel "Son of a Trickster" by Eden Robinson, the series follows an Indigenous teenager struggling to keep his dysfunctional family afloat. But when he starts seeing strange things like doppelgangers, talking ravens, and skin monsters, his already chaotic life is turned upside down.
The series finale of Trickster airs on The CW on February 16.
It's a Womans World Now.
Everyone here is defending the creator which is a woman but I can guarantee you that if it was a man you would all be yelling for his head.
Happy Viewing!!!! :-)
I was having the same problem with my DVR until I figured out that A lot of the CW shows and a few other networks have already previously aired the show either on other channels or in other countries So it doesn't automatically record if your recording options says 1st run only. When you hit info it should show the original air date. In the future just change the setting to all showings. The only problem is you don't know until it's cued to air. And I'm sad, this show is very interesting and just getting started.
If the show can find an Indigenous showrunner, this would resolve the situation and it could continue. This has been discussed.
