AMC Networks’ Acorn TV has given the green light to a third season of its successful mystery series Harry Wild, starring and executive produced by Jane Seymour. The third season will debut on the platform in 2024.
Season one of Harry Wild was a breakout success on Acorn TV and the second season continued to be a top performer across acquisition and total streams for the service.
“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,” said Seymour.
“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.”
Star and executive producer Seymour (The Kominsky Method, Dr. Quinn Medicine Woman, B Positive) returns as Harriet “Harry” Wild, a retiring university literature professor who is finding herself at one of life’s crossroads.
Also returning are Rohan Nedd (Whitstable Pearl) as her protégé turned partner, Fergus; Kevin Ryan (Guilt, Copper) as Harry’s son and senior police detective; Amy Huberman (Finding Joy, Striking Out) as Harry’s daughter-in-law; as well as Samantha Mumba (The Time Machine, Evolution), Paul Tylak (Kin), and Rose O’Neill.
Season three picks up where season two left off with Fergus, guided by Harry, planning to contest Paula’s custody claim to Liberty. But it is not plain sailing and there are some surprises in store along the way. The agency is still as busy as ever and 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, 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 out, 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 will consist of six episodes and was filmed on location in Dublin, Ireland. All episodes are currently streaming on Acorn TV.
Harry Wild is produced by Dynamic Television. Acorn Media Enterprises co-produces alongside ZDF.
The third season 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.
Robert Quinn and Emer Conroy serve as directors.
