TORONTO (December 12, 2012) Demonstrating its unwavering commitment to premium original programming, OLN has ordered a third season of the smash hit series The Liquidator. Viewers will enjoy even more wheeling and dealing as the series expands from 13 to 26 episodes. Additional broadcast details will be announced at a later date.
“Series like The Liquidator illustrate the growing momentum and success of high-quality, homegrown content,” said Claire Freeland, Director of Original Programming, Rogers Media. “The show truly embodies OLN’s bold attitude and personality-driven programming that resonates with viewers.”
