REPUBLIC OF DOYLE debuts on a brand new night, beginning Sunday, January 6 at 9 p.m. (9:30 NT) and kicks off CBC- TV's premiere week

Beginning  Sunday,  January 6 at 9 p.m. (9:30 NT),  CBC-TV's gripping, detective drama REPUBLIC OF DOYLE returns on an all-new night for an explosive Fourth season.  Joining  CBC's robust Sunday night line-up, this season  life in the Republic remains riddled with constant intrigue for the Doyle clan between affairs gone rogue, deceptions, stalkers and on-going family drama. 

Click here to view a sneak peek of REPUBLIC OF DOYLE's Season Four.

Starring Allan Hawco as a charming and bold detective, REPUBLIC OF DOYLE follows Private Eye Jake Doyle in his daily struggles to navigate the complications of running the family P.I. business while keeping his volatile private life in check.

As Season Four begins, detectives Jake Doyle and Malachy Doyle return to the Republic crushed with guilt over what happened to Des at the end of Season Three, but must attempt to restore their first-rate standing as the best private investigators in the city. However, they still have a business to maintain, leading them to resort to cases they might have previously walked away from, and their newfound clientele isn't helping them get in anyone's good graces. From auction house scams to high-stakes gambling to identity theft that turns dangerous, the Doyles bounce from one unusual case to the next. If they're lucky things won't blow up when a dangerous secret comes to light that links them to a less than savory family member. 

Is Des really gone from the Republic for good? How will Tinny cope with the weight of a staggering secret handed down to her by her mother? Viewers will continue to be thrown into the mayhem as the Doyle clan buckles up for another crazy ride. 

Watch REPUBLIC OF DOYLE, Season 4 Sundays at 9 p.m. (9:30 NT) beginning Sunday, January 6.
