TV series don’t get more provocative than Canadian drama “Mary Kills People”, in which Caroline Dhavernas stars as an ER doctor who moonlights as an “angel of death”, assisting terminally ill patients to die on their own terms.

Following the show’s critically acclaimed first season, “Mary Kills People” returns with a second six-episode season, premiering Wednesday, Jan. 3 at 8 p.m. ET/PT on Global.

The second season will pick up eight months after Mary (Dhavernas) and Des (Richard Short) framed Grady (Greg Bryk) for the deaths of their patients. However, as Mary and Des dive deeper and darker into their illegal work, a mysterious woman, Olivia Bloom (Rachelle Lefevre), approaches them with a deadly request, unleashing an unstoppable chain of events that unfolds throughout season 2.

“During the thrilling season 2 premiere, Des is happy to reteam with Mary following his stint in prison,” reads the synopsis of the upcoming premiere, “but when a routine case leads to a devastating outcome, Mary questions whether she was better off fighting the good fight without him — in control and unchallenged.”

Meanwhile, the second season will find Mary becoming increasingly entangled in her illegal work, risking her family and medical career as she tries to keep her worlds separate and her daughters safe. We will also see the return of Ben, whose investigation into a complicated undercover case winds up colliding with Mary’s criminal descent, forcing her to decide whether to come clean once and for all.
