Occasionally, streaming services have to make last-minute modifications to their schedules. As of this morning, Acorn TV has announced a couple changes to the originally-released March and April 2022 schedules. We've updated both posts accordingly, but since it's easier to see changes highlighted separately, we wanted to point them out here – along with the shows leaving in the next couple of weeks.

Candice Renoir, Season 4
Candice Renoir (Cécile Bois) is a French homicide detective and newly single mother of four. After putting her career on hold to follow her husband's career, she's returning to work in a port town in the South of France.

Balthazar, Season 4
This gritty contemporary mystery follows French forensic pathologist, Raphael Balthazar (Tomer Sisley) as he works to uncover the secrets of those unfortunately enough to find themselves on his examining table. He talks with them, imagining what they might say, then using his keen insight to help out with their investigations.
Season 4 picks up seven months after the tragic events at the end of season 3. We won't include any spoilers here for those who aren't caught up – but there are big changes that effectively send Balthazar back to square one in terms of his mental health.
To move ahead, he'll have to confront his past.
