Inspired by the best-selling series of books by M.R. Hall and created by Morwyn Brebner (Saving Hope, Rookie Blue), Coroner is a character-driven, close-ended episodic drama about Dr. Jenny Cooper—a recently widowed, new coroner who investigates suspicious, unnatural or sudden deaths in Toronto. Reflecting the rich diversity of the city, each death brings Jenny into a new arena and sparks on buzzworthy themes. Jenny taps into her intuition as much as her intellect and heart as she solves cases with the help of homicide detective Donovan McAvoy, a man who isn’t afraid of challenging the status quo; pathologist Dr. Dwayne Allen and his assistant River Baitz; and Alison Trent, Jenny’s assistant who keeps it real. It isn’t long before death knocks at her door with a slew of new cases—both COVID-related and not—that force her to unleash the real Jenny Cooper locked inside.

Coroner stars Serinda Swan (Ballers, Marvel’s Inhumans) as Dr. Jenny Cooper with Roger Cross (Dark Matter, Caught) as Donovan McAvoy; Éric Bruneau (Goalie, Blue Moon) as Liam; Ehren Kassam (Degrassi, Next Class) as Ross; Nicholas Campbell (Da Vinci’s Inquest, Bad Blood) as Gordon Cooper; Tamara Podemski (Run, Never Saw It Coming) as Alison Trent; Andy McQueen (Killjoys) as Malik Abed; and Kiley May (It Chapter Two) as River Baitz. Season 2 cast members include Nicola Correia-Damude (October Faction) and Olunike Adeliyi (Workin' Moms). Joining the cast in Season 3 are Mark Taylor (Flashpoint) as Clark, a crown attorney working with Jenny on a new inquest, and Uni Park (Kim’s Convenience) as Melanie, the coroner office’s new pathologist.
