About the show
This Life is a Canadian drama television series that focuses on the life of a single mother who finds out that she is terminally ill and must prepare her children for a life on their own. Based on a French language series, the first season of This Life premiered on CBC on October 5, 2015.
Natalie Lawson is a 44-year-old lifestyle columnist who has sacrificed a much more exciting career in order to raise her three children. Several years ago she was diagnosed with kidney cancer, an illness, which she thought she beat. But life proves her wrong and she finds out that her cancer has returned. She only has a limited amount of time to prepare her children for living without her support, while at the same time trying to enjoy every moment she has left. She is helped in both of these tasks by her somewhat irresponsible sister Maggie, who’s a 30-something-year-old living like she’s 20.
This Life has received good reviews and critical acclaim. It is a series filled with drama, but the good-hearted, warm, family type of drama. It’s sensible and fun, and makes us think of how minuscule our lives are when it comes to death. CBC has not yet announced its plans for the future of This Life season 2, but we believe that there is enough material and drama to make the show come back for a second season next year.
UPDATED April 2, 2016: The high-ranking family saga This Life has been picked up for the viewer-anticipated second season, to air in the fall of 2016. The renewal was made as a part of a massive bulk announcement made by CBC, which included such audience favorites as Murdoch Mysteries and Heartland.
