Burden of Truth spoilers follow.

Burden of Truth, starring Smallville's Kristin Kreuk, has officially been renewed for a fourth season by Canadian broadcaster CBC, according to TV Line.

Production is expected to kick off in Winnipeg, Manitoba, this year.

The legal drama's first season, which premiered in 2018, followed hotshot lawyer Joanna Hanley (Kreuk) after she returns to her small hometown to defend a pharmaceutical company against a group of sick, young girls.

Once there, she uncovered a much bigger conspiracy, which seems to mysteriously tie in with why her and her father left for Toronto all those years ago.

Saving Hope's Peter Mooney also appears as Billy Crawford, a rival attorney who strikes up an unlikely alliance with Joanna. Later, the pair struck up a romance, too.

More recently, the season 3 finale saw a time jump forward and revealed a heavily pregnant Joanna still working at law firm Crawford Chang. Around the time the episode aired, and before season 4 was confirmed, Mooney teased that there was still much "more story" to explore going forward.

"Well, I can't say too much, but I feel good about it," he told TV Line.

"The only thing that we're really dealing with – and everyone's dealing with right now – is the realities of shooting with the current pandemic. So I'm really, really hopeful that we'll be able to go back for a season 4, because that story did wrap up and I thought they wrapped it up so beautifully at the end of season 3.

"What I'm really interested in now is what does the new story look like?" he continued. "What does it look like with them as a family? And how do they continue on practicing as lawyers and moving forward together [with] a brand new little one on the mix?"

Burden of Truth airs on The CW in the US and on CBC in Canada.
