UPDATED August 17, 2017: The Canadian favorite and top-rated drama series is getting ready to be back on our small screens! Season 11 of Murdoch Mysteries is set to begin on the CBC network on Monday, September 25, 2017 at 8pm. The upcoming season will contain 18 one-hour episodes plus a Christmas special, as usual. A cryptic tagline on the show’s official Twitter post read “This season, the stakes couldn't be higher...”, so we are extremely excited to see what’s in store this fall.
Murdoch Mysteries is a veteran Canadian historic criminal drama series that is based on the characters from the Maureen Jennings' novel series. Developed by R.B. Carney, Cal Coons and Alexandra Zarowny, the show is produced by Shattesbury Films, UKTV and ITV Studios Global Entertainment. The series follows the life of detective William Murdoch in Toronto in the end of the 19th century. Season 10 of Murdoch Mysteries premiered on CBC on October 10, 2016.
Detective Murdoch is a young servant of the Toronto Constabulary in 1895. Being young and prone to everything new, he enjoys following latest technological advances and believes that many of them can be applied to solving crimes. Fingerprinting, blood testing, surveillance, you name it – Murdoch picks up on up-and-coming technologies quickly and shocks his colleagues and the criminals with his swift and brilliant means of solving challenging murder cases. The tenth season premiere features a murderer on the loose as the debutantes in Toronto are pursuing the town’s most attractive bachelor. Simultaneously, the Great Fire creates chaos for Toronto’s inhabitants. Other cases in the current installment involve a female serial killer, the death of a valued pedigreed dog, and several others. Additionally, Murdoch’s relationship with his wife Julia is explored in depth as the couple considers adapting one more child.
Viewer reception and chances of renewal
Since it began airing on CBC starting with the sixth season, the series has become one of Canada’s most popular shows. The landmark 150th episode will be aired during the current 18-episode season. Murdoch Mysteries boasts exceptionally steady viewership, and season 10 premiere, which drew 1.4 million viewers, is perfect proof of that.
