Guardians of the North renewed for second season

The Guardians of the North TV show is set to return for a second season in 2024.

The television docuseries, which follows wildland firefighters and dedicated First Nation responders in Saskatchewan’s Indigenous and northern communities while they protect the people, property and resources of the north, will see its second season airing next spring on CityTV Saskatchewan.

The second season will continue to follow the main characters from season one and others as they prepare for and respond to wildfires and evacuations during the summer of 2023.

“In recent years, our success in building a dedicated audience has been most evident through Guardians of the North,” Wavelength Entertainment Producer Chris Triffo said. “The overwhelmingly positive reception from both local and non-local viewers has been truly remarkable. Our achievements owe much to the invaluable backing of the SPSA, Saskatchewan First Nations Emergency Management, Creative Saskatchewan and Citytv Saskatchewan.”

Guardians of the North receives funding from Creative Saskatchewan’s Feature Film and TV Production grant. The original $276,000 investment in the first season saw an estimated $1.3 million of economic outputs back into Saskatchewan.
