Diggstown Season 3 Release Date
Diggstown season 2 premiered on March 4, 2020. Like the season before it, it is comprised of six episodes. The season finale aired on April 1, 2020.
Good News! It looks like our favorite lawyer’s trial by fire will continue for at least one more season. In July 2020, CBC TV revealed that the series is going to start filming for its third season in Halifax in early 2021. The official statement also mentioned that another legal drama, ‘Burden of Truth’, has been renewed for a fourth season. Sally Catto, the current general manager for programming at CBC TV, said that the two series uniquely interpret the traditional legal crime procedure.
“Both ‘Burden of Truth’ and ‘Diggstown’ look at the legal world through a distinct lens by highlighting systemic corruption, injustice and discrimination in the legal system, including anti-Indigenous and anti-Black racism,” stated Catto in a news release. However, with shooting beginning in early 2021, Diggstown season 3 can only release sometime in 2022.
