Being Erica is a Canadian comedy-drama television series created by Jana Sinyor and starring Erin Karpluk as Erica Strange, a woman who begins seeing a counsellor to deal with regrets in her life, only to discover the counsellor has the ability to send her back in time to actually change these events.
The series aired in Canada on CBC from 5 January, 2009 to 12 December, 2011. There are 49 hour-long episodes in four seasons.

In Season 4, Erica has come full circle as she begins the final stage of her therapy as a doctor in training.
Thanks to the guidance of Dr. Tom, Erica has gone through some major life changes, and Season 4 finds her happily in a new relationship, and at the helm of 50/50 Press, the publishing company she started with Julianne.
But this doesn't mean Erica has finished her own journey. Now Erica is learning about herself through how she is helping as a doctor in training.
Universally, there will always be new bumps in the road, new mistakes made, and while paving the way to balance and happiness, the resilient Erica will continue to face obstacles that she must overcome to help both patient and doctor alike.
