Sullivan’s Crossing, which aired on Canada’s CTV in March 2023, got renewed for season two on June 8—a few months before the show's premiere on The CW in the U.S. (FYI, the release date is in Fall 2023.)

3. What Is the Plot for Sullivan's Crossing Season 2?

Plot details haven't been revealed yet, but we're guessing that season two picks up right where season one ends.

In case you need a refresher, Maggie discovers that she's pregnant and Sully collapses after having a disturbing flashback. Meanwhile, Lola stirs up drama between Maggie and Cal by keeping the letter he wrote for her. And now, Maggie is convinced that Cal abandoned her.

Although the plot is still unknown, Brad Schwartz (President of Entertainment at The CW) said in a statement that fans can expect another "emotionally captivating" season. He said, “We can’t wait to bring Sullivan’s Crossing to our viewers this fall, and we are so confident that audiences are going to fall in love with it that we have committed early to a second season. As partners for season two, we cannot wait to work alongside this talented cast and excellent creative team to deliver another emotionally captivating season. Audiences can give their hearts to this show knowing that it is coming back for much, much more.”
