Cardinal Season 5 – Has The Crime Show Been Cancelled?

Cardinal Season 5

The desolate beauty of Algonquin Bay beckons once more, but this time, the shadows seem to hold even deeper secrets. Is the show returning to further solve the mysteries or is Season 4 the end to the show?

With the fans dedicated to finding out more about the show’s return, there are extensive chances that the show will most likely not make a comeback anytime soon or ever in the future.

If you are a fan of the show and have been looking forward to more details about Cardinal Season 5, we have managed to accumulate all the relevant details here.

When is Cardinal Season 5 Releasing?

Are there chances of the Cardinal returning with a fifth season? To be fair, anything is possible at this point. However, let us not get ahead of ourselves.

In multiple interviews following the completion of Season 4, HITC confirmed that Cardinal won’t be returning with Season 5 because it has been cancelled officially. So, for the fans who have been waiting for more news about the show’s eventual return, it looks like things aren’t going to be happening anytime soon.

Despite how well-received the first four seasons were, there were several conflicts in terms of finances and timing for the production that led to the eventual cancellation of the show. It doesn’t look like things will transpire as people expected them to in the first place, which is quite disappointing.

What can we expect from Cardinal Season 5?

Now that we have a formal confirmation that a fifth season is most likely not going to happen, there doesn’t seem to be a point speculating what the plot of the show would have looked like. What you can do in the meantime is catch up with the first four seasons.

If Season 5 were to happen, there are 100% chance that it would pick up where the fourth season ended. 

The final episode of Season 4, while tying up some loose ends, also planted tantalizing seeds for future exploration. The unresolved tension between Cardinal and Delorme, the lingering darkness surrounding the town’s underbelly, and the ever-present threat of the unforgiving wilderness all hint at a continuation that promises to be as gripping as ever.

Season 5 could have delved even deeper into the psychological complexities of its characters. Cardinal’s internal struggles with his past demons and Delorme’s unwavering pursuit of justice will likely take center stage. We can also anticipate a more profound exploration of the town’s hidden history and the unsettling forces that lurk beneath its seemingly placid surface.

However, all of these are mere expectations that won’t end up happening anytime soon, so that’s quite a huge disappointment.

Who is returning to Cardinal Season 5?

In case Cardinal was renewed for Season 5, we could have witnessed the main cast return on the show, which would have included:

  • Billy Campbell as Detective John Cardinal
  • Karine Vanasse as Lise Delorme
  • Glen Gould as Kevin Chee
  • Deborah Hay as Catherine Cardinal 
  • Alanna Bale as Kelly Cardinal 
  • Glen Gould as Det. Jerry Commanda 
  • James Downing as Det. Ian McLeod 
  • Zach Smadu as Det. Ash Kular
