TORONTO (May 27, 2013) – Canada’s #1 summer drama SAVING HOPE is back with its highly-anticipated second season premiering Tuesday, June 25 at 10 p.m. ET/PT on CTV and CTV Mobile. Each new episode is available following the television broadcast on CTV.ca, CTV Mobile and the CTV App, and viewers can watch all of Season 1 online at CTV.ca now. At the end of last season, former Chief of Surgery, Dr. Charlie Harris (Michael Shanks) awoke from his coma and reunited with his fiancée Dr. Alex Reid (Erica Durance). Charlie, who is still seeing spirits, battles to free himself of his connection to the after-life as his secret threatens to destroy his relationship with Alex, and even his life. Meanwhile, the doctors of Hope Zion Hospital, including new Chief of Staff Dr. Joel Goran (Daniel Gillies), continue to solve medical mysteries, perform heroic surgeries, and navigate complicated – and racy - relationships.

New this season, the doctors of Hope Zion examine the more personal and less-explored side of their relationships in the digital companion series LAST CALL, premiering on CTV.ca/SavingHope, the CTV App, and CTV Mobile following broadcast episodes. LAST CALL follows the stories of the doctors as they confess their problems and share secrets over drinks after their rounds.

“As last season’s breakout summer hit, Canada’s SAVING HOPE captivated audiences with its unique take on the hospital drama,” said Phil King, President, CTV Programming and Sports. “We are excited to bring viewers another compelling season that continues to bring audiences more of the shocking plot twists and exhilarating drama they’ve come to love.”

SAVING HOPE reigns as the most-watched Canadian drama of the 2011-12 broadcast year, with an impressive Season 1 average of 1.7 million viewers each week. This season features Gemini Award-winning actress Erin Karpluk (BEING ERICA), who joins SAVING HOPE for a recurring guest starring role, playing a single mother and one of Dr. Joel Goran’s (Daniel Gillies) patients. Additional guest stars include Peter Keleghan (MURDOCH MYSTERIES), Kyle Breitkopf (Parental Guidance), Daniel Kash (ORPHAN BLACK), Vanessa Morgan (MY BABYSITTER’S A VAMPIRE), Raoul Bhaneja (NIKITA), Noam Jenkins (ROOKIE BLUE), Tyler Hynes (WAREHOUSE 13), and Yanna McIntosh (REPUBLIC OF DOYLE).

In the Season 2 premiere, entitled “I Watch Death” (Tuesday, June 25 at 10 p.m. ET/PT on CTV – check CTV.ca for local times), Alex (Erica Durance) and Charlie (Michael Shanks) are caught in the middle of a shooting on their way to their first shift back at Hope Zion. It’s all hands on deck when the victims of the shooting end up at Hope Zee. In the midst of the commotion, Alex treats a bullied teenager and deals with her own emotions about everything that’s happened in the past year. Meanwhile, Charlie is caught off guard when he realizes that he’s still able to see the spirits of deceased patients. As well, new Chief of Surgery Joel (Daniel Gillies) works alongside Charlie’s ex-wife Dawn to perform an intense surgery.
