Great news for former General Hospital star, Vinessa Antoine (Ex-Jordan Ashford).  The Canadian series in which she stars, Diggstown has received its third season renewal by the CBC.  Shooting for the upcoming season is to begin in Halifax, Nova Scotia in early 2021.

In Diggstown, Antoine stars as Marcie Diggs, a legal aid lawyer, who who continues her exploration of a system fraying at the edges as she and her band of tireless colleagues fight to protect society’s most vulnerable from a capricious justice system.

In a statement,  Sally Catto, General Manager of Entertainment, Factual & Sports, CBC said of Diggstown and its other announced renewal of Burden of Truth that both shows look at the legal world in a “distinct lens by highlighting systemic corruption, injustice and discrimination in the legal system, including anti-Indigenous and anti-Black racism.  These two series offer a unique take on the traditional crime procedural, and continue to engage audiences across the country each season with strong performances and original storylines.”

Deadline broke the news of the Diggstown pick-up.

So, happy for Vinessa that there is more Diggstown on the way? Comment below.

I’m actually surprised this show hasn’t been picked up by a US network yet. The seasons are only 6 episodes long, but that’s a good number for a summer replacement series…. which is when it usually ends up airing here in Hell. Maybe the US networks are afraid that a Canadian legal drama wouldn’t resonate with a US audience, though there’s not a lot of difference in how the courtroom drama plays out, apart from the Prosecutor claiming to speak for “the Crown”, rather than “the State”. And another CBC legal drama, “Burden of Truth” is already running on the… Read more »

I find it is really only American shows that have 20 or more episodes per season. The U.K. shows usually have 8 or 10 and call it a season as well.

The first time I saw her on TV was on the CBC hit series Heartland, then came to General Hospital and I was so happy that this actress was doing well in the TV biz. It would be nice if an American start airing Diggstown so I can watch it. Congrats to her on her success.

GENERAL HOSPITAL: Carly Admits To Sonny She Was Falling Back In Love with Jason

On Friday’s episode of General Hospital, Carly (Laura Wright) and Sonny (Maurice Benard) finally had the “talk”.  You know, the one about what Sonny really walked in on the night he “returned from the dead” on Carly and Jason’s (Steve Burton) wedding night?  Yeah, that one.

Sonny has already had a conversation with Jason, where Jason admitted he was starting to fall again for Carly, even though they were originally getting married to show a united front for the five families.

Now coming to confront Carly, Sonny is at first greeted by her with “Mike’s” cowboy hat, where she says the man he was in Nixon Falls is a mystery to her. Sonny tells her he spoke with Jason and so Carly is compelled to admit that she and Jason would have slept together on their wedding night, if Sonny hadn’t shown up alive and in the bedroom!

Sonny’s clearly upset about his best friend and his wife getting so close and rekindling their old feelings. Carly tells Sonny that, at first, Jason and she were just going through with the wedding for show, but later, they decided to make it a real marriage, and were falling in love.

When Sonny poses the question to Carly, if she has any residual feelings for Jason, she says they have gone back to being best friends, and how much she loves Sonny.  Carly points out that Nina (Cynthia Watros) did this to them – she kept them apart for nine months – and so much has happened that it’s been difficult for them to be together as it was in the past because of it.

In the end, despite what Nina had perpetrated on them, Carly and Sonny come to an agreement that they need to rebuild their relationship.  But the cowboy hat looms as we fade to black.

Clearly, the Jason and Carly relationship and almost consummating it on their wedding night, is not sitting well with Sonny; plus Sonny seems to continue to not really tear into Nina for her deception as much as someone would if he didn’t also have feelings for her.

So, what do you hope happens next? Do you want Sonny and Carly to work things out? Do you hope Sonny sleeps with Nina? If he does, and Jason goes back to Britt (now that they are going on another adventure together to locate Liesl) is Carly ultimately the odd woman out?  Share your thoughts and theories via the comment section below.
