The four fifties imagined by Jacques Davidts bow out with this third and final season in which they will face several challenges, including shared accommodation. Indeed, by a combination of circumstances, Christian (Christian Bégin) must simultaneously accommodate Simon (Alexis Martin), Martin (Normand Daneau) and Étienne (Yanic Truesdale). According to Truesdale, the comedy directed by Ricardo Trogi will reach a new high. “It’s very, very funny, but at the same time, it touches on very realistic themes,” the actor recently told us.
