Coroner

About the Show

​Building on the critical and ratings success of the hit first season, CORONER season two (8x60) returns to Toronto where Jenny Cooper continues her mission to speak for the dead to protect the living. In the aftermath of a devastating apartment fire, Jenny struggles to control a dangerous new outlet for her anxiety. Meanwhile, a witness to the fire draws Detective Donovan McAvoy into a hidden side of the city. The season dives deeper into what it means to live in the face of death. Jenny must trust her instincts, as her father’s dementia worsens, her son turns 18, and her now-live-in boyfriend Liam is confronted by his own push and pull with death. Every body has a story – and this season, Jenny must figure out the story her own body’s telling.

CORONER stars Serinda Swan (Ballers, Marvel's Inhumans) as Dr. Jenny Cooper with Roger Cross (Dark Matter, Caught) as Donovan McAvoy; Éric Bruneau (Goalie, Blue Moon) as Liam; Ehren Kassam (Degrassi, Next Class) as Ross; Nicholas Campbell (Da Vinci's Inquest, Bad Blood) as Gordon Cooper; Tamara Podemski (Never Saw It Coming) as Alison Trent; Andy McQueen (Killjoys) as Malik Abed; and Kiley May (It Chapter Two) as River Baitz. Joining the cast this season are Nicola Correia-Damude (October Faction) as Kelly, a survivor of the apartment fire who makes a connection with Jenny, and Olunike Adeliyi (Workin' Moms) as Noor, a social worker who will do anything to protect her clients.
