The CBC (aired in the US on The CW) mystery drama show about indigenous teens is not getting a second season
“We have had many conversations over the last few weeks with a view to continuing production on a second season of Trickster. Those conversations included producers, writers, actors, and the author of the books on which Trickster is based. Fully respecting everyone’s perspective, season two will not move forward as planned unfortunately."
why? turns out co-creator and director Michelle Latimer is not Indigenous, something she claimed to be for the last 20 years
Latimer claimed to have Métis and Algonquin heritage from her mother's side
She used that heritage link to promote her Inconvenient Indian documentary, which got the attention of the Métis National Council and members of the Kitigan Zibi Anishinabeg nation who did some fact checking and went "we don't know her"
CBC News did some more digging and only found french canadian and other european ancestors
