BlackBerry is one of the stand-out Canadian films of the year so far, and now Matt Johnson's latest is being turned into an extended TV series on CBC.

Starring Jay Baruchel and Glenn Howerton, as well as Johnson himself, the BlackBerry TV show is made up of the same material as the film, with the addition of never-before-seen footage. While the film clocked in at almost exactly two hours, the series stretches that to three, which will air across three 60-minute episodes.

The series version of BlackBerry premieres on CBC in fall 2023.
