In the new season of Cracked, Detective Aidan Black (David Sutcliffe) and the Psych Crimes team are assigned a new unit psychiatrist, Dr. Clara Malone (Brooke Nevin). Together with Detective Poppy Wisnefski (Luisa D’Oliveira) and psychiatric nurse Leo Beckett (Dayo Ade), they are tasked with solving the most puzzling and problematic cases the city has to offer. Aidan and Clara are both accustomed to operating outside the normal parameters of their respective professions and need to learn to trust each other in order to succeed in the face of overwhelming adversity.
This series, which blends police and medical drama, reflects the fact that an overwhelming percentage of police calls involve people with mental illnesses or psychiatric disorders. In Cracked, the Psych Crimes Unit struggles to achieve balance between protecting the public from harm and protecting the dignity of all citizens. But can the unit do so without compromising their own mental health?
