Coronation Street

About the Show

  • TV
  • ONLINE

CORONATION STREET is the longest-running British soap opera in television history, set in the fictional town of Weatherfield (based on the real town of Salford in North West England). 

The series, first broadcast on December 9, 1960, portrays everyday life in a small, tightly knit community. For more than 50 years, CORONATION STREET has uniquely combined cult status with popularity and durability; its themes of love, passion, deception, greed and intrigue resonate deeply with audiences around the world. With millions of devoted viewers, it remains a continuing favourite with Canadians.

The soap continues with all-new episodes this summer on CBC, the soap's long-time home in Canada. ITV Studios Global Entertainment (ITVS GE) has signed a significant multi-year deal with CBC for CORONATION STREET which will see the soap continue to air exclusively on the Canadian public broadcaster, both on CBC-TV and online at cbc.ca/coronation, just one week after the UK broadcast.
