Aaron Paul TV show ‘The Path’ coming to Showcase this spring
For those of you missing Aaron Paul on Breaking Bad, you’re not going to have to wait much longer to see him in something else.
Showcase has announced its spring TV schedule, and one of the most intriguing new programs is The Path, helmed by Friday Night Lights head writer and executive producer Jason Katims.
Starring Paul, Michelle Monaghan (True Detective), and Hugh Dancy (Hannibal), The Path follows a family caught in the middle of a controversial cult movement as they struggle with relationships, faith, and power.

Each episode takes an in-depth look at the gravitational pull of belief and what it means to choose between the life someone lives and the life they want. The series blends elements of mystery-thriller, romance, and mysticism. The Path will air Thursdays at 9 p.m. ET/6 p.m. PT, beginning March 31.
Also new to Showcase come springtime is Hunters, a sci-fi thriller that follows FBI agent Flynn Carroll (Nathan Phillips, Wolf Creek), whose wife goes missing. His search leads him to a highly classified government organization — the Exo-Terrorism Unit (ETU) — who track and fight alien terrorists. The series is executive-produced by The Walking Dead‘s Gale Anne Hurd, and starts up on Monday, April 11 at 10 p.m. ET/PT.
Season 2 of Showcase’s most-watched series Outlander begins as Claire (Caitriona Balfe) and Jamie (Sam Heughan) arrive in France, hell-bent on infiltrating the Jacobite rebellion and stopping the battle of Culloden. Jamie and Claire are thrown into the lavish world of French society, where intrigue and parties are abundant, but political gain proves far less fruitful.
Altering the course of history presents challenges that begin to weigh on the very fabric of their relationship. However, armed with the knowledge of what lies ahead, Claire and Jamie must race to prevent a doomed Highland uprising, and the extinction of Scottish life as they know it. Outlander premieres Sunday, April 10 at 10 p.m. ET/PT. The first season is currently available on Shomi.
Also returning for Season 2 this spring is 12 Monkeys, which travels through time to premiere Monday, April 18 at 9 p.m. ET/PT. The filmed-in-Toronto series follows the journey of Cole, a time traveller sent back in time from a dark, hellish future to prevent it from ever happening. Joining forces in the present with Dr. Railly, Cole must defeat a centuries-old malevolent organization known as the Army of the 12 Monkeys. As Cole, Railly and their unlikely allies get closer to the truth, they’ll learn there are deadly consequences for all of history…and time itself.
Showcase’s dramatic offerings continue this summer with the return of Golden Globe Award-winning series Mr. Robot in its hotly anticipated second season. Scheduling details will be announced at a later date.Follow @CJancelewicz
