About the Show

SORT OF (8x30; Fall 2022). Created by Bilal Baig (Acha Bacha) and Fab Filippo (Save Me), the award-winning CBC original series SORT OF returns for Season 2: the season of love. Romantic love, family love and friend love. All the loves. Sabi (Baig) decides not only are they ready for some uncomplicated romance, they also want everything to be loving with everyone. Unfortunately, with their dad's unexpected return from Dubai, the Kaneko-Bauers' struggles as Bessy (Grace Lynn Kung) is released from rehab, and issues at the 2SLGBTQ+ bookstore/bar Bar Bük, Sabi is faced with situations and relationships that are anything but simple.

A CBC original series, SORT OF is produced by Sienna Films/Sphere Media and created by Bilal Baig and Fab Filippo, who also serve as showrunners and executive producers. The series is written by Baig, Filippo, Jenn Engels, Nelu Handa and Ian Iqbal Rashid, with Filippo and Renuka Jeyapalan (Kim’s Convenience, Workin’ Moms) directing. Sienna Films’ Jennifer Kawaja and Julia Sereny are also executive producers.
