STRAYS – Premieres Tuesday Sept. 13, 8:30 p.m. (9 p.m. NT)
Shannon Ross (Nicole Power) is back and on a roll. The shelter’s thriving, the employees are gelling, and Hamilton’s finally feeling like home. But her life is about to be turned upside down by the arrival of Travis, her abrasive and handsome new neighbour. The two immediately start fighting like, well, cats and dogs, but underneath the bickering lies something more. Another hitch in Shannon’s plans is a new board member, Tonya, who seems to be grooming Joy to take Shannon’s place. As Shannon throws herself into a passion project at work, her skills and resolve are tested as Joy (Tina Jung) tries to hide a new relationship, Kristian (Frank Cox-O’Connell) seeks to finally get promoted and Nikki (Nikki Duval) starts a side-hustle. Despite it all, there’s no place Shannon would rather be.

In 1859, Patrick Sumner (Jack O’Connell) joins The Volunteer, as the ship’s surgeon, hoping to lose himself in the tough physicality of an Arctic whaling trip.

As the true purpose of the expedition becomes clear, conflict between the two men erupts, taking them on a journey far from solid ground and way beyond the safe moorings of civilization.
