Burden of Truth, the Canadian legal drama led by Smallville star Kristin Kreuk, has come to an end with its fourth season.

The series, which began in 2018 and airs on The CW in the United States, set itself apart from its contemporaries by focusing on institutional racism against indigenous people.

Earlier this week, just before the fourth season finale aired, the show's official social media accounts shared a post (that Kreuk re-shared) that announced the episode would be its last ever.

"After four incredible seasons, we're bringing our Burden of Truth story to its conclusion in tonight's series finale," the post read.

"We are so proud of the stories we've been able to tell each season, especially those related to social justice.

"We're also tremendously appreciative of the support we've received from our fans worldwide, and are particularly grateful to the communities in Winnipeg and Selkirk, Manitoba, for being so welcoming to our crew... Thank you, The Burden of Truth family."

Meanwhile, Kreuk's co-star Peter Moore made his own reaction post, tweeting: "Huge, heartfelt thanks to everyone who met us in Millwood over these four seasons. That town wouldn’t exist without you.

"We wouldn’t have got to know Beckbie, Taylor, Luna, Billy or Joanna if you didn’t invite us into your homes week after week. Thank you."

In a statement issued to TVLine, the show's executive producers revealed that they always intended season 4 to bring an end to the story.

Burden of Truth aired on CBC in Canada. The CW airs the show in the US, but hasn't announced when it will show season 4 yet. Meanwhile, seasons 1 and 2 are available to purchase in the UK via Amazon Prime Video and Apple TV.
