Guardians of the North Returns for Season Two

Released on February 29, 2024

Today, Creative Saskatchewan and Wavelength Entertainment, along with the Saskatchewan Public Safety Agency (SPSA), are celebrating the second season of the docuseries Guardians of the North, which was filmed in the province.

The second season consists of six episodes that will continue to follow personnel from the SPSA and the Saskatchewan First Nations Emergency Management (SFNEM) as they prepare for and respond to wildfires and evacuations during the summer of 2023 - one of Saskatchewan's biggest wildfire seasons.

"This riveting docuseries provides a deeper understanding of the work involved and dangers faced by first responders in northern Saskatchewan," Corrections, Policing and Public Safety Minister Paul Merriman said. "The tireless dedication of wildland firefighters and First Nation responders, as well as the coordinated effort of the SPSA and its partner agencies, is key to protecting the people of Saskatchewan from wildfires."

"2023 saw unprecedented wildfire activity across Canada. It has been remarkable telling the stories of those dedicated brave individuals tasked with protecting human life, communities and resources throughout Saskatchewan's north," Wavelength Entertainment Producer Chris Triffo said. "We thank Citytv Saskatchewan, Creative Saskatchewan, the SPSA and SFNEM for partnering with us to tell these exciting stories."

"Productions like this one cast a wide net in terms of the positive economic effects in our province and are putting Saskatchewan on the map as a prime destination for filmmakers."
