Fans of Miss Fisher’s Murder Mysteries in the US and Canada (except Quebec) can get their fix of all three seasons of the hit series on Acorn TV starting in October.
A glamorous fashionista to rival Lady Mary, and a mystery-solving sleuth with a track record as good as Miss Marple’s, the Honourable Miss Phryne Fisher has it all — beauty and brains as well as bravery. (Not to mention the flash car, pearl-handled pistol, and string of lovers.)
And effective October 7, 2019, Acorn TV will have it all, too — as in all three seasons of Miss Fisher’s Murder Mysteries, the worldwide hit Aussie mystery-crime drama series — and will be the exclusive SVOD service for the show in the US and Canada (exclusive of Quebec).
Based on Kerry Greenwood‘s “Miss Fisher’s Murder Mysteries” series of novels, the TV series follows the adventures (sleuthing and otherwise) of the eponymous private detective, played by Essie Davis (The Babadook, The White Princess), in 1920s Melbourne.
Costar Nathan Page (Paper Giants: The Birth of Cleo, The Secret Life of Us) plays Detective Inspector Jack Robinson, a local cop who could not have predicted when they first met that he and Phryne would become crime-solving partners of sorts. (Their mutual attraction and sexual tension: obvious to everyone from the get-go.)
Others of the regular cast include Ashleigh Cummings (NOS4A2, Westside) as Dot Williams, Phryne’s maid; Hugo Johnstone-Burt (The Wrong Girl) as Constable Hugh Collins, Robinson’s sidekick; Richard Bligh (Newton’s Law) as Miss Fisher’s’s butler Mr. Butler; and Miriam Margolyes (Call the Midwife) as Phryne’s Aunt Prudence.
Featuring intriguing characters, complex cases, and fashions of the day, Miss Fisher’s Murder Mysteries is one of the most beloved and certainly the most stylish mystery TV series to have ever graced our screens.
