That the brilliant Mr Inbetween is coming back is great news, but also bittersweet in that one of the most entertaining series on telly today will end when the new season does.

As for when the new season begins, Season 3 of Mr Inbetween premieres Tuesday, May 25, at 10 PM ET/PT, on FX, which launches the final season with two back-to-back episodes. New episodes will debut weekly, and all episodes will be available for streaming on FX on Hulu the day after their initial broadcast.

For folks who may not be familiar with Mr Inbetween (one of my favorite new shows of 2018), it is a wry-humored half-hour crime drama that stars series creator and writer Scott Ryan as Ray Shoesmith, a loving father and brother, a good friend, and a reliable criminal for hire. In the dark side of the gig economy, Ray does a variety of jobs — from collecting debts to taking care of various individuals on a permanent basis. Over the course of the first two dark and darker seasons, we see this respect-demanding antihero juggle his parental responsibilities and complicated relationships with the often violent demands of his work, as well as struggle to maintain the good-guy sense of self he’s created for himself and to keep a grip on his chaotic and now imploding life.

In Season 3, the complex world that Ray inhabits has gotten smaller and looks rather different — certainly emptier than in days past, owing to the loss of his beloved brother, Bruce. As Ray quietly mourns, he is figuring out how to care for his aging father, Bill (Kenny Graham, Chopper), while his daughter, Brittany (Chika Yasumura), now growing into a young woman, draws further away from him and comes closer to discovering the truth about who Ray really is.

Things seem good with best mate Gary (Justin Rosniak, Packed to the Rafters) and contemporary Dave (Matt Nable, The Sounds); however, since severing ties with former boss and confidant Freddy (Damon Herriman, Lambs of God), Ray is working freelance and feeling a sense of isolation. Business, though, is booming, and with it comes more than he had imagined. A new connection with criminal kingpin Rafael (Jeremy Sims, Fireflies) intensifies Ray’s struggle, and when sparks fly with new colleague Zoe (Emily Barclay, Glitch), an unexpected tragedy makes Ray question both his career trajectory and his ethics.

Shot in Australia and produced by Blue-Tongue Films and Pariah Productions in association with FX Productions, Mr Inbetween is directed by Nash Edgerton and executive produced by Nash Edgerton, Scott Ryan, and Michele Bennett.
