Series information and plot
X Company is a Canadian/Hungarian historical spy thriller TV series which debuted on CBC on February 18, 2015, and was renewed just two episodes into the freshman run. It is currently in its second season that aired on January 27, 2016. X Company is created by Mark Ellis and Stephanie Morgenstern, and produced by Temple Productions and Pioneer Stillking Films. The first season contained eight episodes, while a second is comprised of ten parts.
The series is set during WWII and portrays 5 Canadian recruits in training as special agents, and their subsequent missions in Europe. The agents` dangerous undertakings bring them deep into the heart of Nazi-occupied Europe. The core team of seven American, Canadian and British characters will participate in covert operations, while the group dynamics also provide an important segment of the series` drama.
Current season and renewal potential
The series originally premiered to over a million viewers in 2015, and the numbers grew further when the catch-up viewing numbers were taken into account. The series is complemented highly by viewers and critics alike, although some have criticized its orthodox, conventional storytelling. Otherwise there has been lavish praise for the tightly written compelling story, the emotionally driven and convincing performances, and a generally solid and poignant style. Is there a renewal in X Company`s future? It seems very likely, as it delivers all that`s promised to the audience – spectacular, earnest entertainment.
