Following the success of the hit CTV series CARDINAL, ETALK looks back on its time with the cast ahead of the series finale, including exclusive set tours and sit-down interviews with stars Billy Campbell and Karine Vanasse, in the all-new 30-minute special ETALK PRESENTS: CARDINAL, premiering Friday, May 8 at 7 p.m. ET on CTV.
Providing ETALK with an exclusive set tour on the last day of filming CARDINAL’s fourth and final season in North Bay, Ontario, Campbell and Vanasse showcase some key set locations and keepsakes, as well as some of their fondest on-set memories.
“I have a very vivid memory of the first week of shooting Season 1,” said Vanasse. “I was just so nervous knowing that we were just creating the characters and the whole world of the show…and I was trying to smoke because Delorme smokes…it was the first time I felt like I really didn’t want to do it wrong. I really wanted to be present for that opportunity.”
While the series is coming to an end, it’s clear that Campbell and Vanasse’s friendship is everlasting. During a taped sit-down interview with Campbell and Vanasse, Danielle Graham asks what they will miss most about working with each other.
“Just the honesty and the humanity and the realness of it all, I mean it’s…always been from the heart,” said Vanasse.
When asked whether viewers can expect a happy or sad ending of the series, Campbell shares, “It’s the best of all possible endings, which is neither.”
ETALK PRESENTS: CARDINAL gives fans an exclusive review of the series as they await the highly anticipated finale that leads detectives John Cardinal (Billy Campbell) and Lise Delorme (Karine Vanasse) to make an unexpected arrest, and follow a hunch to their killer’s location – but he’s one step ahead, and stopping him will be incredibly risky.
The epic series finale of the internationally acclaimed drama CARDINAL culminates on Monday at 10 p.m. ET/PT on CTV, everywhere CTV content can be found, and Crave.
