The Canadian supernatural medical drama "Saving Hope" will focus on the new developments in Dr. Alex Reid (Erica Durance) and Dr. Charles Harris (Michael Shanks) lives when it returns on CTV with the premiere episode of season 4 titled "Sympathy for the Devil" at 9pm on Thursday, 24 September.
The show will be back with a time jump of nine months and it will mainly revolve around the various challenges faced by the protagonist when she returns to work after her maternity leave in episode 1.
Actress Erica Durance recently teased that the followers of the drama series will get to watch her character in real relationship with fiancé Harris.
"It's going to be the first time that the audience actually gets to see Charlie and Alex in real time, in a real relationship, having been in a good place for a while. And then dealing with the aftermath of Joel's death, and there's all sorts of stuff that comes up from that other (supernatural) world," canada.com quoted her as saying.
Meanwhile, "Saving Hope" will line up a new set of guest stars, including Max Bennett as Dr. Patrick Curtis, Kim Shaw as Dr. Cassie Williams and Travis Milne as Ted Crenshaw, in season 4.
The official synopsis of premiere episode reads: "Dr. Reid returns to work, arriving at Hope Zion Hospital with a car crash victim she encountered en route, and she's forced to play nice with new General Surgeon on call, Dr. Curtis. The day gets even more chaotic when Alex is called away to treat Crenshaw, a convicted murderer brought in for emergency treatment".
Meanwhile, Harris begins to confront his feelings about the paternity of Alex's child, all while juggling an insistent Dr. Shahir Hamza (Huse Madhavji) who is looking for backup on his proposal for a new Alzheimer's study. In the ER, Dr. Zach Miller's (Benjamin Ayres) patient is admitted with symptoms mirroring those of Ebola – putting himself and Dr. Maggie Lin (Julia Taylor Ross) at risk of exposure to the deadly virus.
Tune in to CTV at 9pm on Thursday, 24 September, to watch "Saving Hope" season 4 episode 1 titled "Sympathy for the Devil", which will be live streamed here.
