Blood and Water (simplified Chinese: 血与水; traditional Chinese: 血與水; pinyin: Xuè Yǔ Shuǐ) is a Canadian television crime drama series, which premiered on OMNI Television in November 2015.[1] The first television drama series produced for a Chinese Canadian audience,[1] the show mixes dialogue in English, Cantonese and Mandarin.[1]

Set in Vancouver, British Columbia, the show centres on police detective Josephine Bradley (Steph Song). After Charlie Xie (Osric Chau), the son of billionaire real estate developer Li-Rong Xie, is found murdered, Josephine is brought into investigate despite having just been diagnosed with cancer.[2]

The cast also includes Fiona Fu as Weiran Xie, the matriarch who holds the Xie family together; Loretta Yu as Charlie's widow Teresa; Elfina Luk as his sister Anna, who is plotting her eventual takeover of the family business empire; Simu Liu as his brother Paul, a guardian of many of the family's shady secrets; and Peter Outerbridge as Detective Al Gorski, a police colleague of Josephine's.

Eight episodes were produced for the show's first season.[1] A second season, also consisting of eight episodes, first aired on November 13, 2016.[3] The series has been renewed for a third season.[4]
