CBC has announced that the third season of Mr. D will debut on Monday, February 24 2014 @ 9:00pm. The third season shall consist of a mere 8 episodes in order to accommodate the airing of the 2014 Winter Olympics.
Though little has been revealed about the coming season, it was disseminated in an earlier report that the third season will have fewer guest stars in contrast to previous seasons as it will have a more intensive focus on the show’s main cast. Particularly, the coming season will focus on the story lines surrounding Gerry’s increased duties as substitute teacher for physical education, a subject which he is actually qualified to teach.As the show is based on Gerry’s real life experiences as a teacher, it makes sense that we would begin to explore a greater depth of story lines involving his character as a gym teacher since the vast majority of his real life teaching experiences was as a phys ed teacher.
What specific story-lines would you like to see explored and what is your specific reaction/response to the fact that there will be a greater increase in story lines pertaining to Gerry’s involvement with physical education at Xavier Academy? Do you think the style and approach of Gerry’s teaching as a physical education teacher will be somewhat more professional and organized in contrast to his teaching style seen as a social studies teacher, given that he is actually qualified to teach Gym?What other changes do you hope to see be apart of the third season?
