Exclusive: SOAPNet renews 'Being Erica'

Posted on

Yes, it’s true: We will have another season’s worth of time to pester

you into watching our new favorite Canadian drama, SOAPNet’s Being Erica. We’ve gushed about it extensively before,

but just to recap, it’s about a single girl named Erica who was stuck

in a nowhere job at a publishing company with a blah love life until

she met a seemingly magical therapist who could whisk her back in time

to various key moments in her life to rectify regrets. (It’s kinda like

Lost, but with shrinks and romance and Canadian accents.) Sources close to the production have told EW exclusively that Erica will

be back on U.S. airwaves for another 12 episodes — it was already in

production for Canada’s CBC, but SOAPNet will announce its stateside

pickup tomorrow. It’ll premiere early next year, which is great news,

since it left us with that doozy of a cliffhanger in which Erica messed

up the space-time continuum trying to save her dead brother, then ended

up with a creepy new magical therapist assigned to her. Sources say the next season will find Erica (Erin Karpluk) learning more about the dynamics of time travel and will reveal more about her enigmatic psychiatrist, Dr. Tom (Michael Riley).
