The CW and CBC Renew 'Wild Cards' for Season 2

The CW and CBC have today renewed their original drama series Wild Cards for a second season. The new season will produce 13 episodes, which will debut on both networks in 2025.

The new season raises the stakes for sardonic cop Cole Ellis and spirited, clever con woman Max Mitchell both in terms of the cases they're tasked to solve in each episode and their feelings for each other.

The drama stars Vanessa Morgan, Giacomo Gianniotti, Jason Priestley, Terry Chen and Karin Konoval.

Michael Konyves created the drama. He executive produces with James Genn, Shawn Piller, Lloyd Segan, Alexandra Zarowny and James Thorpe. Blink49 Studios, Front Street Pictures and Piller/Segan Productions produce.

"We are thrilled to order a second season of The CW's breakout series Wild Cards," said Liz Wise Lyall, Head of Scripted Programming, The CW Network. "Wild Cards has clearly captured the imagination of our viewers thanks to exhilarating storytelling and the crackling chemistry between Vanessa and Giacomo. We are confident Wild Cards is the kind of smart and sexy blue-sky drama that could continually build its audience for years."
