Strays Release Date
The film was released on September 14, 2021
Shannon Ross (Nicole Power) is the new executive director of the Hamilton East Animal Shelter in STRAYS, where she is in charge of an eclectic team. Shannon is ready for a change and new challenges now that she is in her 30s. She’s putting Toronto behind her to concentrate on her new work, new connections, reuniting with family, and discovering more about herself.
Shannon’s trademark optimism is put to the test as she leads an oddball team that includes her apathetic cousin Nikki (Nikki Duval), her over-eager animal care manager Kristian (Frank Cox-O’Connell), her overly sheltered office manager Joy (Tina Jung), and the building’s maintenance guy Paul (Tony Nappo), who keeps everyone on their toes with his straight-faced prison humour.
Kevin White (Kim’s Convenience, Schitt’s Creek) created the show. Thunderbird Entertainment is the studio behind STRAYS.
