The CW announced today that it has picked up Sullivan's Crossing for a second season. The network had already acquired the freshman season of the Canadian drama with plans to premiere it this fall. Unlike Season 1, though, The CW will be partnering with Bell Media's CTV, Reel World Management and Freemantle to produce Season 2.

"We can't wait to bring Sullivan's Crossing to our viewers this fall, and we are so confident that audiences are going to fall in love with it that we have committed early to a second season," commented Brad Schwartz, President of Entertainment, The CW Network. "As partners for season two, we cannot wait to work alongside this talented cast and excellent creative team to deliver another emotionally captivating season. Audiences can give their hearts to this show knowing that it is coming back for much, much more."

Today's news comes on the heels of a breakout success of the show earlier this year on CTV up north, when it became the highest-rated Canadian drama launch in more than two years. The series consistently ranked as the #1 show in its time slot across key demographics and performed 51% higher than CTV's prime time average for total viewers.

Sullivan's Crossing follows Maggie Sullivan, a top Boston neurosurgeon whose personal and professional life are turned upside down after her business partner is indicted for fraud and she is charged with negligence. Deciding to leave the city, Maggie returns home to a campground in Nova Scotia run by her estranged father, where she must navigate her complicated present while confronting the painful past she has ignored for years. When Maggie meets a mysterious stranger there, the two initially butt heads until he starts to grow on her, which only complicates things as she must choose between moving back to Boston and a life in Sullivan's Crossing.
