About the Show

THIS LIFE now in season 2 finds Natalie Lawson (Torri Higginson) living with hope that her cancer can be stopped, navigating her promising drug trial, and grappling with the return of her ex-husband, David (Louis Ferreira) -- who, after a 10-year absence, wants to be a father to their children again. In the next chapter of this funny, honest series about a big family driven to live for today, every Lawson continues to encounter their own set of unique, compelling obstacles. Matthew (Rick Roberts) faces tough choices when it comes to saving his marriage; Maggie (Lauren Lee Smith) goes to surprising new extremes in her late transformation into adulthood; and Oliver (Kristopher Turner) puts everything on the line for the sake of his career. Set in Montreal, this one-hour drama showcases a charmingly imperfect multi-generational family grappling with the messiness of life, in good times and bad, together.
