Humboldt: The New Season, is a restorative documentary about how the families and the community pull together and heal in the year after the tragedy. The new documentary will premiere on CBC Docs POV on ThursdayAugust 15, 2019 at 9 p.m. ET (9:30 NT) on CBC and the free CBC Gem streaming service.

From the filmmakers:

When a devastating highway accident in April 2018 thrust Humboldt, Saskatchewan into the international spotlight, voices from across Canada and from around the world responded with condolences, vigils, and tributes. As the shock subsided and the world stepped back to let the community grieve, the directors of Humboldt: The New Seasonstayed with the families for 11 months, beginning in August 2018, as training for the new hockey season began, and the families and players gradually adapted to their new reality, including the trial and sentencing of the truck driver, with surprising and touching results.

Humboldt: The New Season follows five of the survivors: Brayden Camrud and Derek Patter as they return to play for the 2018-2019 Humboldt hockey season with a different coaching staff and new teammates; Tyler Smith, Kaleb Dahlgren, and Layne Matechuk who continue their recovery while trying to pursue their love for hockey in new avenues;  the late Logan Boulet’s parents who carry on their son’s legacy by spreading the message of organ donation, something Logan helped raise unprecedented awareness about across Canada; and Mark Cross’ parents as they see their son’s memory live on through the York Lions hockey program where he was a former player (and where Kaleb was recruited). This is a story of healing without ever forgetting or letting go.
