Series info and cast
Jack Irish is a television drama series that follows a set of three Australian TV movies and is based on the eponymous novels by Peter Temple. The program premiered on February 11, 2016 on ABC AU with a six-episode first series. The series is written by Andrew Knight, Matt Camaron and Andrew Anastasios, executive produced by Ian Collie, Andrew Knight, Carole Sklan and Christopher Gist and produced by Essential Media and Entertainment with ABC TV, Screen Australia and Film Victoria.
Jack Irish (Emmy winner Guy Pearce) emanates whiskey-infused charm as he untangles criminal schemes as a private investigator. A mysterious and generous stranger hires Jack to find his long-lost brother, and he soon finds himself implicated in his murder. Jack is forced to prove his innocence as the situation escalates quickly to a new level of danger and complexity. The supporting cast that transferred over from the TV movies also excels in the series – Marta Dusseldorp is Linda Hillier, Irish`s girlfriend, Roy Billing and Aaron Pedersen are Harry Strang and Cam Delray, lovable small-time criminals.
Critical reception and chances of renewal
The visually classy series is praised for excellent performances and off-beat humor, but the dialogue is not as gritty as in the television movies. The premiere of the series attracted 1.04 million viewers and rated as the second most-watched scripted series, and currently has a score of 8.3/10 on IMDb. Although a renewal seems very likely, the network has not made any announcements regarding picking up Jack Irish for another series, so please stay tuned and we will inform you of any relevant news as soon as the network makes a decision.
