Trickster canceled after revelation that co-creator Michelle Latimer is not indigenous, as she had claimed

  • Canada's CBC has decided to pull the plug on the indigenous coming-of-age supernatural thriller, which airs on The CW, after co-creator and director Latimer apologized last month for claiming for the past two decades that she was of Aboriginal descent. “We have had many conversations over the last few weeks with a view to continuing production on a second season of Trickster,” the CBC said in a statement. “Those conversations included producers, writers, actors, and the author of the books on which Trickster is based. Fully respecting everyone’s perspective, season two will not move forward as planned unfortunately. CBC is extremely proud we were able to bring this compelling story to the screen and are grateful to the many talented individuals who made it possible. We are as committed as ever to telling other important Indigenous stories, of which there are many. In fact, CBC currently has eight such scripted projects in development and we look forward to sharing more details about what’s next in the coming months.”
