She’s a Con. He’s a Cop. 

Vancouver’s own crime-comedy Wild Cards, with Canadians Vanessa Morgan from Riverdale as a con woman and Giacomo Gianniotti from Grey’s Anatomy as a cop, starts filming season 2 this August in Vancouver.

Comedic crime-solving drama Wild Cards follows the unlikely duo of Max Mitchell (Vanessa Morgan), a spirited, clever con woman and Cole Ellis (Giacomo Gianniotti), a gruff, by-the-book cop, set against the backdrop of beautiful Vancouver. 

The CBC-CW co-production trailed only (the now-canceled) Walker in total audience on The CW this season, averaging 892,000 viewers and a 0.1 demo rating with Live+7 playback, according to TVLine.

Wild Cards has clearly captured the imagination of our viewers thanks to exhilarating storytelling and the crackling chemistry between Vanessa and Giacomo. We are confident Wild Cards is the kind of smart and sexy blue-sky drama that could continually build its audience for years. –The CW Head of Scripted Programming Liz Wise Lyall to o TVLine.

Season 1’s cliffhanger found Ellis about to arrest Max for her $33 million jewel heist when she shows up at his houseboat to tell him she’s discovered who murdered his brother.

How will they resume their odd partnership and resolve their feelings for each other?
