Coroner Season 1 Finale “Bridges” Preview

We’re already to the final episode of the first season of Coroner, and it’s been a fast eight-episode ride! Monday night, the season finale pays off its core mysteries as Jenny uncovers skeletons at work and home. [Updated 8/4/20: Beginning 8/5/20, Coroner will air Wednesdays at 9 pm ET on The CW in the U.S.]

[Warning: General spoilers ahead.]

While the coroner’s office and police department reel from Dr. Peterson’s murder and McAvoy follows his prime suspect, Jenny and her team make a startling discovery. That sends them on a literal excavation trying to figure out where everything started.

Jenny’s mom plate is loaded, too, when she discovers that Ross hasn’t  been coping with the loss of his dad as well as she thought. She takes him to work and it’s Alison who hilariously tips her off.

Liam picks the exact wrong time to clear the air, but he’s impulsive like that. Gordon gains some necessary clarity of his own to answer Jenny’s questions when a panic attack shows her a hidden, harsh truth from her childhood.

It’s a very full episode, written by Morwyn Brebner and Nathalie Younglai and directed by Paul Fox. There’s a terrific balance of humor, sadness, and even a little terror.

Jenny faces her own demons as well as demons who are real, and her blood and found families are just what she needs to survive.

I definitely want to see more of these stories, so hopefully we’ll hear soon that a second season has been ordered. Check back after tomorrow’s finale for my exclusive post-season download with series creators Adrienne Mitchell and Brebner as they answer some lingering questions and talk about this season and their hopes and plans for the next.
