Storyline and production info
A new Canadian sitcom launched on CBC on October 11, 2016, Kim`s Convenience is based on the eponymous play by Ins Choi. The series hails from Thunderbird Films in collaboration with Soulpepper Theatre Company in Toronto. It is written and executive produced by Choi and Kevin White in collaboration with Ivan Fecan, Tim Gamble, Alexandra Raffe, Leslie Lester and Albert Schultz. The first season is slated to contain 13 half-hour episodes.
A Korean Canadian family is running a convenience store, and it`s not always an easy task. Mr. Appa Kim (Paul Sun-Hyung Lee), the family patriarch and his hardworking wife Umma (Jean Yoon) are in their mid-50s, their daughter Janet (Andrea Bang) is 20 and estranged son Jung (Andrew Phung), who is 24 are at the center of the storyline of this universally appealing and actually funny comedy series.
Great reviews and chances of renewal
Met with excellent reviews from both critics and viewers and hailed for its bitingly sharp dialogue, Kim`s Convenience has strong potential for the future. It is praised for its universally appealing realistic portrayal of the Kims, the rarely portrayed friction between different minority groups and great performances. There seems to be no reason for CBC to drop this gem, so we are expecting a renewal announcement some time in the near future. The unique series has a 7.2/10 IMDb score, and is almost certainly coming up to give Fresh Off the Boat a run for its money. Stay tuned and we will inform you when CBC makes a renewal announcement regarding the future of Kim`s Convenience series.
