Following its most-watched season yet, CTV’s hit Original Series “The Listener” returns with a mind-bending Season 4 premiere Wednesday, May 29 at 10 p.m. ET/PT on CTV and CTV Mobile.
In the all-new season, which travels to Vancouver for the first time in the season premiere, telepath Toby Logan (Craig Olejnik) works hard to sharpen his police skills as a full-time Special Consultant with the Integrated Investigative Bureau (IIB).
Also this season, Ingrid Kavelaars joins the cast as Nichola Martell, the ambitious new police superintendent.
“Double Date…With Death,” an original digital extension of “The Listener,” will also premiere Wednesday, May 29 on CTV.ca/TheListener, CTV App, and CTV Mobile. Bell Media’s first digital series to feature broadcast tie-ins, episodes of “Double Date…With Death” will roll out once per week concurrently with new episodes of “The Listener.”
“Following its most-watched season yet, Season 4 offers complex character development and talented guest stars that will continue to entertain viewers and entice new ‘listeners’ across the country,” said Mike Cosentino, Senior Vice-President, Programming, CTV Networks, Bell Media.
In the Season 4 premiere episode entitled “Blast from the Past”, Toby (Craig Olejnik) and Michelle (Lauren Lee Smith) are sent to Vancouver to investigate after a string of high-tech thefts spreads west.
Toby is surprised when he crosses paths with his ex-girlfriend Lori Black (Jewel Staite from “The L.A. Complex”) who may be connected to the potential suspect.
2013 JUNO Award-nominated indie band Walk Off The Earth makes a special guest appearance in the episode.
In Season 4, Toby’s personal life also heats up as his relationship grows with crime reporter Tia Tremblay, who is inexplicably the one person he can’t read.
Life will be no less dramatic for Toby’s colleagues as Sgt. Michelle McCluskey struggles through a complicated marriage with her husband, while IIB head Alvin Klein (Peter Stebbings) attempts to protect himself and his team from the political manoeuvrings of the ambitious new police superintendent, Nichola Martell. Meanwhile, new director of emergency services Oz Bey (Ennis Esmer) realizes that being the boss is harder than he expected.
Season 4 also welcomes a stellar list of guest stars including Justin Chatwin, Michael Filipowich, Michael Cram, Gabrielle Miller, Erin Karpluk, Krystin Pellerin, and Canadian mixed martial arts fighter Elias Theodorou.
In “The Listener’s” digital companion series “Double Date…With Death”, series characters Oz (Ennis Esmer) and Sandy (Tara Spencer-Nairn) work with local reporter Missy (Stephanie Anne Mills) to uncover the secret behind a “Jane Doe’s” death and the mysterious key she left behind. All clues lead to a deadly virus outbreak set to take place at a high-stakes ping pong competition.
Mills makes her debut in the digital series premiere (May 29) before joining the broadcast cast in Episode 2.
