The new show is called Strays, and Nicole Power will reprise her role as Shannon.

In March it was announced that Season 5 of Kim's Convenience would be the last, and there were calls on Twitter to save the series after it got a shoutout on Saturday Night Live.

CBC said that Strays was supposed to join its comedy lineup alongside the beloved Toronto-based show before it was cancelled.
