Metropia is a Canadian television drama, which currently airs on Omni Television. The show originally aired every weeknight at 10:30 p.m. on OMNI.2, and all the episodes of the week were repeated on Sunday nights on OMNI.1 starting at 9 p.m. Metropia was later nationally broadcast beginning in 2007 on Super Channel. The show is still available Sunday - Friday nights, on OMNI.1.


The series debuted in October 2004. As a condition of licence, Omni was required by the CRTC to make 78 half hours of television. They decided to make a sexy night time soap opera with a diverse cast to fulfill the channels' multicultural mandate. After shooting 78 episodes, Omni commissioned a further 12 episodes for a total of 90 half hours. The series, which ran 5 nights a week, was about a community of artists working and living in Toronto.
