Saving Hope, a Canadian medical drama starring Erica Durance, has added Being Erica's Erin Karpluk as a recurring character on the show's second season, which has recently begun filming in Toronto, Ontario.
Karpluk will play a single mother and patient of Dr. Joel Goran (Daniel Gilles). It is unknown how often she will appear or how many episodes she has signed on to appear in.
The series will also have some special guest directors this season, as Gregory Smith (Rookie Blue) and Jason Priestley (famous for his turn on the original Beverly Hills, 90210 series) will each direct an episode of the hour-long drama.
The show airs in Canada on CTV.
Saving Hope also aired stateside on NBC during its rookie season. Eighteen new episodes are being developed for the series' sophomore season.
This season will see Michael Shanks play Dr. Charlie Harris, the former chief of surgery who wakes up from a coma and is reunited with Dr. Alex Reid (Durance), his fiancé.
The series is executive produced by John Morayniss, Ilana Frank, David Wellington and Lesley Harrison. It was created by Malcolm MacRury and Morwyn Brebner.
In addition to Being Erica, Karpluk has appeared on Life Unexpected, the L Word and Godiva's.
