"We’re thankful to the communities in Winnipeg and Selkirk, Manitoba, where we filmed our show, and our tremendous cast, helmed by Kristin Kreuk and Peter Mooney, for bringing ground-breaking stories to life."

The series has been a decent performer for The CW during its first three seasons and is expected to premiere its fourth season stateside at some point in the summer.

As for what fans can expect on the final season?

“A mining company reopens a dormant mine outside Millwood,” so Joanna and Billy “step in to protect a local woman’s home from certain destruction,” according to the official synopsis.

“When the mine swiftly retaliates, Joanna is forced to confront a long-buried secret from her past and scramble to protect the future of her career and her family."

"As both sides prepare for war with the fate of Millwood at stake, Joanna and Billy must juggle their life with a newborn with waging a legal battle against a corporate titan.”

It's unclear whether the series finale was pre-planned, but we'll have more clarity when the episode airs on CBC.
