Hotel Paranormal has been given a second season

Blue Ant Media-operated Canadian networks Smithsonian Channel Canada, T+E and Cottage Life have revealed a slate of new and returning original series as production restarts in the territory.

For Smithsonian Channel Canada are docuseries Secret Cities, which uncovers secrets of cities around the world, and Impossible Repairs, in which host Mike Davidson lifts the lid on the inner workings of advanced engineering projects.

Meanwhile, Canadian network T+E has ordered supernatural series Paranormal Hotline. Each episode begins with an eerie phone call that shares a story told by those claiming to have encountered spirits.

T+E has also recommissioned Hotel Paranormal for a second season and Haunted Hospitals for a third run.

Elsewhere, lifestyle network Cottage Life has ordered a second season of The Weather Files. Each episode begins with true stories told by survivors of weather-related disasters, followed by an in-depth scientific look at how the events impact the planet as a whole.

Additional original commissions will be announced by Blue Ant Media in the coming months, overseen by head of original content Sam Linton.

Jamie Schouela, president of Canadian Media at Blue Ant Media, said: “During these unprecedented times, we’ve seen record audiences get hooked on our passion-focused, distinct programming they can’t find anywhere else. As production resumes, Blue Ant remains committed to strengthening our Canadian original programming with fresh, new content packed with entertaining storylines and characters that we know will resonate with audiences across the country.”
