SEASON TWO OF GLOBAL NEWS’ ORIGINAL INVESTIGATIVE SERIES THE NEW REALITY PREMIERES OCTOBER 2 ON GLOBAL

New Season Launches with Carolyn Jarvis’ Canadian Exclusive on Vaccine Boosters

For Immediate Release

TORONTO, October 1, 2021 – Global News is proud to announce that its popular made-in Canada current affairs program, The New Reality, returns for its second season premiering October 2 at 7 p.m. locally on Global.

Led by a team of award-winning journalists, The New Reality showcases documentary-style features, investigative reports, with a focus on dynamic stories about the fabric of our communities and interviews with the people shaping our future. The program will introduce audiences to extraordinary people, new concepts, unseen places and untold stories.

The season launches with Global News Chief Investigative Correspondent Carolyn Jarvis’ exclusive story inside vaccine manufacturer Moderna’s Boston operations as they develop COVID-19 boosters. Carolyn will dive into the debate around boosters, immunity and vaccine efficacy. Also in the Season 2 premiere, The New Reality travels to a remote area of eastern Quebec where reporter Krista Hessey spoke with the unlikely alliance of defenders of the Magpie River, and those behind the growing Rights of Nature movement that seeks to protect the environment through the legal system.

“We’re extremely excited to bring another season of The New Reality to our audiences. This past year has demonstrated the importance of investing in journalism that goes deeper on stories that impact Canadians and reflect the diversity of our country,” said Chris Bassett, Vice President, National and Network News. “While navigating these uncertain times, we hope The New Reality will provide audiences with a greater understanding and unique perspective on the people and ideas reshaping our world.”

The New Reality airs Saturdays at 7:00 p.m. ET on Global, and can be streamed live and on-demand with STACKTV and on the Global TV App.
