Sunday viewers are in for a marathon treat. Two 10-episode omnibus editions will air at 7 a.m. (7:30 a.m. in Newfoundland) on Aug. 28 and Sept. 4.

Coronation Street will return to its regular schedule on Sept. 5, with one exception — the show will air at 11:30 p.m. on Sept. 7 because of the Rio 2016 Paralympics.

Viewers can also watch online anytime. Shows are available after their weekday broadcast.
