Post by: AYS Staff 25 January, 2021

Acorn TV has acquired the North American rights to the upcoming third season of the Australian series Jack Irish, along with three 90-minute movies:  Jack Irish: Bad Debts; Jack Irish: Black Tide and Jack Irish: Dead Point

An Easy Tiger Production for ABC Australia in association with Film Victoria, the series stars Guy Pearce in the title role as the criminal lawyer turned troubleshooter. Other cast members include Marta Dusseldorp, Aaron Pedersen, Roy Billing, and Shane Jacobson.

Here is the official logline for season three, which is called Jack Irish: Hell Bent:

The third Jack Irish series sees Jack’s long-suppressed trauma rear its ugly head as he discovers there’s more to Isabel Irish’s seemingly random murder by his former client Wayne Milovich; namely, a criminal conspiracy involving his trusted friend, homicide detective Barry Tregear. When a cop is murdered in a drive-through, a chain reaction is set off, forcing Jack to search for the truth behind his wife’s murder. Enlisting the help of his old flame, Linda Hillier, Jack digs back 25 years into a record-breaking drug raid dubbed Great White. The final series brings him face-to-face with a more personal and destructive advisory than any he’s ever known.

“Guy Pearce’s portrayal of Peter Temple’s iconic character has been widely-acclaimed by North American media and beloved by our subscribers, so Acorn TV is thrilled to exclusively premiere its final season," Don Klees, SVP Programming for Acorn TV, said in a statement. "Through our partnership with DCD Rights, Acorn TV continues to lead the way in bringing high-quality productions from Australia to North American audiences.”
