This is the first time the British drama series will be available in Canada and the US.

Stan Lee, chief creative officer of POW!, said: “Luck has always been a fascinating subject to me, and I am thrilled to finally share that fascination and the story of Harry Clayton with audiences in the US and Canada.”

Lucky Man‘s second season will return to the UK in early 2017.
