This is the story of a Canadian mountie who went to Chicago to find his father's killer. Eventually the trail led back to another mountie. He was then treated as persona non grata by his other mounties, and the only place he could get posted was Chicago. Unfortunately, he is more of an outdoors kind of guy, which infuriates the Chicago detective with whom he works.

[show]David Marciano explained in a 1995 LA Times article on the series that the dead caribou seen in the pilot was a real caribou that they killed for use in filming. The Inuit people told the producers that they killed the caribou and did not use it for it's true purpose and that unless they had a proper burial for the caribou, the show would be cursed. Marciano then explained that the show was then cursed with such incidents as a plane use for production crashing and a special effects explosion nearly blowing up a location (the El Mocambo rock club). So the producers went back and gave the caribou a proper burial.
- While frequently shown as having four seasons (2 full seasons and 2 short seasons) the production company sells the show in a set of 3 seasons.
- The third and fourth seasons of "Due South," without the same American funding that the first two seasons had enjoyed, were held more strictly to Canadian content regulations.
