SEASON 3 OF 19-2, STARRING JARED KEESO AND ADRIAN HOLMES, COMING IN 2016 ON BRAVO 

Season 3 sees the return of beat partners Ben Chartier (Jared Keeso) and Nick Barron (Adrian Holmes), as they navigate the blurred lines between Montreal politics and organized crime, while the squad struggles for redemption and healing in the wake of Season 2’s traumatic events, which included a horrific school shooting and the shocking revelation that their beloved sergeant was a pedophile.

Season 3 also introduces new cast members, including Juliette Gosselin (Les Jeunes Loups) as manipulative teenager Martine, who claims to have information on Kaz’s death; Krista Bridges (DURHAM COUNTY) as Inspector Elise Roberge, who has been assigned to wrap up the investigation on Sergeant Houle at Station 19; and Joe Pingue (THE EXPANSE) as Charlie Figo, an old-school mobster who goads Nick into uncharted territory.

Directors: Sturla Gunnarsson, Stefan Pleszczynski and Louis Choquette. Produced by SPHÈRE MÉDIA and ÉCHO MÉDIA.

Season 2 of 19-2 grew its timeslot audience on Bravo (Mondays at 10 p.m. ET) by 54% compared to the previous year, reaching a total of 2.5 million viewers over the course of the season.
