The Artful Detective, also known as Murdoch Mysteries, is a crime mystery drama that airs on CBC in Canada and on Ovation in the US. One of the highest-rated scripted series in Canada and counted among the most-watched shows on Ovation, Murdoch Mysteries is lauded for its depiction of the late 1800s backdrops and a deft approach when solving some of the most complicated cases.
13 seasons in and counting, the addictive drama shows no signs of slowing down anytime soon. Well, read on to know more about its future, i.e The Artful Detective season 14.
Murdoch Mysteries Season 14 Release Date: When Will It Premiere?
The Artful Detective Season 13 premiered on February 1, 2020, on Ovation. After spanning 18 episodes (airing two back-to-back episodes every Saturday for nine weeks) it wrapped up on March 28, 2020.
Prior to its US premiere, season 13 was released on September 16, 2019, on CBC. And until now, CBC has not given an official go-ahead for a new season. But fans have already taken to social media channels, demanding more of the series. Some of them want not one, but multiple seasons for the engaging detective drama.
Hence, we are confident that a renewal will be announced in the upcoming months. If renewed, we can expect The Artful Detective season 14 to premiere sometime in September 2020 on CBC, considering the fact that since season 7, the show has been a part of the channel’s annual fall schedule. Following its Canada premiere, it should then land on US tv screens. Our best guess is that Murdoch Mysteries season 14 should most likely release in February 2021 on Ovation in the US.
The Artful Detective Season 14 Cast: Who Can Be In It?
The lead character of William Murdoch is played by Yannick Bisson. Joining Bisson is Hélène Joy as Murdoch’s wife Dr. Julia Ogden. Rounding up the lead cast is Thomas Craig as Inspector Thomas Brackenreid, Jonny Harris as George Crabtree, Lachlan Murdoch as Henry Higgins-Newsome, and Daniel Maslany as Detective Llewelyn Watts.
Since all of the above actors are staples of the show, they are expected to resume their characters in season 14, as and when it happens.
The Artful Detective Season 14 Plot: What Can It Be About?
Based on Maureen Jennings’s bestselling Detective Murdoch series of novels, The Artful Detective is set in Toronto between the late 1890s and early 1900s. This was the age of invention and the series revolves around Detective William Murdoch and Dr. Julia Ogden as they employ path-breaking forensic techniques to get to the roots of horrific homicides.
Season 13 follows Murdoch as he tackles another series of gruesome murders while using radical, new techniques like the “searchizer” device. He is still suspicious about the intentions of Violet Hart and has to deal with new arrivals, including Special Constable Robert Parker, who progressed from a murder suspect to a person who helped in solving that case.
Season 14 will take up another bunch of mysteries from Maureen Jennings’s books and will continue to follow Murdoch and team as they solve several more intriguing crimes.
