Canadian broadcaster Citytv has confirmed that the police procedural drama “Hudson & Rex” will be back for a seventh season, continuing the crime-solving adventures of Detective Charlie Hudson and his four-legged partner, Rex.

The series, a Canadian adaptation of the Austrian-Italian drama “Kommissar Rex” and its German counterpart, first premiered on March 25, 2019, on Citytv, with filming taking place in St. John’s, Newfoundland and Labrador. It centers on the unique partnership between Detective Hudson (John Reardon), who prefers the company of dogs over chatty colleagues, and Rex, a former K-9 German Shepherd with exceptional skills.
