CBC says a second season of “Trickster” will not go forward, after its co-creator Michelle Latimer became embroiled in a controversy over her claimed Indigenous ancestry.
The broadcaster says “many conversations” were held with producers, writers, actors, and Eden Robinson, the author of the books, before making the decision.
“We are as committed as ever to telling other important Indigenous stories, of which there are many,” CBC said in a statement. “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.”
