In 1994, Due South hit television screens. The Canadian off-beat crime drama, which starred Paul Gross and David Marciano, followed the story of a Royal Canadian Mounted Police Officer called Benton Fraser, who teams up with street-wise Chicago detective, Ray Vecchio.
Each week, the pair solved crimes, and each week their ‘odd couple’ partnership proved very successful. On occasion, Fraser’s pet wolf, Diefenbaker would also lend a paw to help solve the crimes, while from time-to-time, Fraser’s deceased father would also pop up (in spirit form), to offer his son some advice.
Quirky, captivating, and always a great deal of fun, Due South proved popular with Canadian audiences during its original broadcast. The show was also sold to various countries around the world, where it also proved to be a hit – especially in the UK!
To this day, Due South continues to pop up in the TV schedules and audiences continue to fall in love with the series. But if you’re new to the world of Due South, how many episodes of the show do you need to track down?
Due South ran for a total of four seasons, beginning in 1994 and ending in 1999. Across the course of its four-season run, a total of 67 episodes of Due South were produced, beginning with Pilot and concluding with Call of the Wild – Parts One and Two.
Across the course of the show, a number of famous faces dropped in for small roles, including Carrie-Anne Moss, Ryan Phillippe, and Leslie Nielsen. The show’s line-up also received a little tweak during its run, with Fraser getting a new partner midway through the series, in the shape of Detective Kowalski, as played by Callum Keith Rennie.
