Acorn TV announced today the third season renewal for Harry Wild, the streamer’s hit Irish whodunit series starring and executive produced by Jane Seymour.
Season 3 of Harry Wild will be coming to our screens next year. Hooray!
The first season of the hit mystery series was a breakout success on Acorn TV, and the sophomore season continued to be a top performer across acquisition and total streams for the service.
The third season has Primetime Emmy® Award winner Jane Seymour (Dr. Quinn, Medicine Woman, B Positive) reprising her role as Harriet “Harry” Wild, a retired university literature professor who has found a new calling as a mystery-solving sleuth. Also returning are Rohan Nedd (Whitstable Pearl, Safe) as Harry’s protégé-turned-partner, Fergus; Kevin Ryan (The South Westerlies, Copper) as Harry’s son, Charlie, a senior police detective in the Dublin Garda; Amy Huberman (Finding Joy, Striking Out) as Harry’s daughter-in-law, Orla; as well as Samantha Mumba (The Time Machine, Evolution) as Fergus’s mother, Paula Kenny, Paul Tylak (Obituary, Kin) as Glenn Talbot, and Rose O’Neill as Harry’s granddaughter, Lola.
Said Jane Seymour:
“I am thrilled for another mystery-packed season of Harry Wild and can’t wait for our fans to see what investigations Harry and Fergus encounter in Season 3 on Acorn TV. It has been such a joy playing this multi-faceted character and returning to Ireland again to work with this talented cast and crew was fantastic.”
Season 3 of Harry Wild pick ups where Season 2 left off, with Fergus, guided by Harry, planning to contest Paula’s custody claim to Liberty (Rosa Willow Lee). But it is not plain sailing, and there are some surprises in store along the way. The agency, busy as ever, means Harry and Fergus have to find a way to balance work and life. This time out they’re hired to prove the lead singer of Ireland’s hottest boy band didn’t kill himself; find out who decapitated a woman in a busy restaurant and served her head on a platter; discover who murdered a despotic director on the set of Ireland’s leading daytime soap opera; and work out how a mystery writer managed to shoot himself in a locked panic room without a gun.
Closer to home, a good friend of Harry’s calls on her for help when her estranged husband turns up dead in her fishpond, and Harry and Fergus, along with Charlie, Orla and Lola, are in the midst of the action when a grieving father forces them to solve his daughter’s case.
Elsewhere in and around Harry’s world, love is in the air when Glenn decides the time has come to pop the question to his long-time girlfriend, the light-fingered Petra. And while love doesn’t run so smoothly for Fergus and Lola this time around, Harry meets a charming fellow private detective and finds herself falling for him, even though she’s not sure she can trust him and finds him utterly infuriating.
The third season of Harry Wild consists of six episodes and was filmed on location in Dublin, Ireland.
All episodes of Seasons 1 and 2 are currently streaming on Acorn TV.
Harry Wild is produced by Dynamic Television. Acorn Media Enterprises co-produces alongside ZDF. Season Three is created and written by David Logan, along with writer Jo Spain, and executive produced by Jane Seymour, Daniel March, Klaus Zimmermann, James Gibb, Morgan O’Sullivan, James Flynn, Catherine Mackin, and Bea Tammer.
