Well, it won't be long now!
Broadcast on CTV and Bravo! in Canada, and internationally in 120 countries and 33 languages by FOX International Channels – THE LISTENER has an ever-growing number of fans. Posting for all of them - from everywhere - we've been eagerly awaiting the news of this third season.
Especially with how things ended in Episode 213 “The Reckoning” - so many life changing aspects in the episode, but those last few minutes, with Toby's words of conviction to continue helping...well, it makes you wonder - will the use of his 'gift' really mean the death of him??? (gulp) After watching the trailer above there's no telling what kind of trouble his mind reading will get him into.
Here's what we know for sure...
...this third 13 episode season will feature great guest stars like Kristin Lehman (The Killing), Rossif Sutherland (I’m Yours), Ian Tracey (Hell on Wheels), Canadian rapper, record producer and actor Wes Williams (Cra$h & Burn), Juno Award-nominee Fefe Dobson, and more.
The premiere of “Season 3 finds Toby (Olejnik) having apparently renounced the use of his paranormal gift and severing ties with Sgt. McCluskey, after the strain of using his abilities starts to take a toll on his health. But he is unexpectedly thrust back into the world of the IIB when he finds himself in the middle of a bank heist being pulled off by a desperate team of robbers (Rossif Sutherland and Ian Tracey). It will take all of Toby's skills, both as a paramedic and a mind reader, to keep him and his fellow hostages alive.”
And that's just the beginning of what promises to be the best season yet.
THE LISTENER's regular cast will be returning – that includes Ennis Esmer as paramedic Oz Bey; Peter Stebbings as Alvin Klein, the IIB’s brilliant in-house legal expert;Gemini-nominated Lauren Lee Smith as IIB Sergeant Michelle McCluskey; Rainbow Sun Francks as Corp. Dev Clark, McCluskey’s computer maven partner; Mylène Dinh-Robic as Dr. Olivia Fawcett, Toby’s confidante and colleague at St. Luke Hospital; Arnold Pinnock as EMS supervisor George Ryder and Tara Spencer-Nairn as Sandy, St. Luke Hospital’s triage nurse (and Oz's soon to be 'steady'girlfriend).
Stay tuned for a stellar third season...we can't wait! SABS

SABS Star Crossed Sitings...
The Listener's Season 2 Finale saw the end of the 'gifted' Elizabeth Simmonds played by actress Alex Paxton-Beesley. Fans of The Firm, which co-stars co-starred Shaun Majumder will also note Alex played accused killer Sarah Holt. Sadly she died on that show too. But...and here's the fun twist - Alex and Shaun both guest starred on the very first episode of Republic of Doyle Ep 101 “Fathers and Sons” - only Shaun was behind bars in that one.
And while we're on the R of D subject Mylène Dinh-Robic (Dr. Olivia Fawcett) took a turn in the Republic this past season playing Olive the 'widow/stressed-out wife' of Carl Maher (Shawn Doyle) in Episode 305 “Dead Man Talking”
With both shows being shot in Canada – there's bound to be way more than those two sitings... so if you've got one let us know - just post a comment and we'll add it to our "Cross Over Feature".
