WILD CARDS is officially returning for a sophomore season on The CW and Canadian broadcaster CBC. The 13-episode season 2 will bow in 2025.

The series is “a crime-solving procedural with a comedic twist that follows the unlikely duo of a by-the-book, sardonic cop Cole Ellis (Giacomo Gianniotti), and a spirited, clever con woman Max Mitchell (Vanessa Morgan). They are partnered together, and each uses their unique skills to solve crimes. For Ellis, that means hard-boiled shoe leather police work; for Max, it means accents, disguises, schemes and generally befriending everyone in sight, while driving Ellis absolutely nuts.” Michael Konyves  created the show.

“We are thrilled to order a second season of The CW’s breakout series WILD CARDS,” said Liz Wise Lyall, Head of Scripted Programming, The CW Network in a statement. “WILD CARDS has clearly captured the imagination of our viewers thanks to exhilarating storytelling and the crackling chemistry between Vanessa and Giacomo. We are confident WILD CARDS is the kind of smart and sexy blue-sky drama that could continually build its audience for years.”

“We are excited to team up with The CW again on WILD CARDS to build on the first season, which captivated audiences on both sides of the border,” added Sally Catto, General Manager, Entertainment, Factual and Sports, CBC. “CBC is committed to showcasing Canadian talent and storytelling on an international stage, and our work with partners like The CW helps to amplify these efforts. We’re looking forward to the new season and can’t wait for audiences to dive back into the thrilling world of WILD CARDS.”

According to The CW, “season 1’s cliffhanger found Ellis about to arrest Max for her heist of a 33 million dollar jewel, but his feelings of betrayal are sidelined by a bombshell revelation from Max; she’s learned the identity of his brother’s murderer. Season 2 raises the stakes for our duo both in terms of the cases they’re tasked to solve in each episode and their feelings for each other.”
