Wild Cards Season 1

Was Wild Cards cancelled or renewed for season 1? When does it start on The CW? Who will be returning for the new season? In this post, we have summarized everything we know so far about the next season.

What Is Wild Cards About?

WILD CARDS is a crime-solving procedural with a comedic twist that follows the unlikely duo of a by-the-book, sardonic cop and a spirited, clever con woman. Cole Ellis (Giacomo Gianniotti) is a demoted detective who has begrudgingly spent the last year on the maritime unit, while Max Mitchell (Vanessa Morgan) has been living a transient life elaborately scamming everyone she meets. But while arrested and being held at the station, Max ends up helping Ellis solve a local crime. The two are offered the opportunity to redeem themselves - Ellis needs to get back to his detective post and Max needs to stay out of jail. The catch? They have to work together, each using 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. The two will have to learn what it means to trust another person and maybe actually become partners.

The CW Network announced the new original series WILD CARDS starring Vanessa Morgan (“Riverdale”) and Giacomo Gianniotti (“Grey’s Anatomy,” “Reign”) will premiere on Wednesday, January 17 (8:00-9:00pm ET/PT) followed by the season three premiere of returning favorite drama FAMILY LAW (9:00-10:00pm ET/PT) starring Jewel Staite (“Firefly,” “The L.A. Complex”) and Victor Garber (“DC’s Legends of Tomorrow”).

Acclaimed actor Jason Priestley (“Beverly Hills, 90210”) joins the cast of WILD CARDS as George, Max’s father and a master con man. George taught his daughter everything she knows. She got his enthusiasm for fun, his charisma, and cool head. The fact that he is in prison doesn’t dampen his spirits – or his influence. Everyone loves George – even inmates and guards show their respect with fist-bumps and favors. Above all else, George’s number one priority is Max and he couldn’t be more proud of his little girl.

From Blink49 Studios, Front Street Pictures and Piller/Segan in association with The CW for commissioning broadcaster CBC in Canada, WILD CARDS is created by Michael Konyves. Executive producers include Konyves, pilot director James Genn, Shawn Piller, Lloyd Segan, and writers Alexandra Zarowny, James Thorpe, Noelle Carbone and Morwyn Brebner. WILD CARDS is produced by Charles Cooper and Virginia Rankin. International distribution is handled by FIFTH SEASON.
