ABC confirms June return date for final season of JACK IRISH with GUY PEARCE

Emmy award-winner Guy Pearce is back for one last crusade reprising his iconic role as Jack Irish, a former criminal lawyer with a penchant for getting wrapped up in things he shouldn’t.

Inspired by the acclaimed crime novels of Peter Temple, the explosive four-part series comes full circle, with the long-suppressed trauma of Jack’s wife’s brutal and random murder by his former client Wayne Milovich – which launched the first Jack Irish instalment, Bad Debts – rearing its ugly head after Jack discovers there was more to those fateful events all those years ago.

Striking painfully close to home, Jack’s obsession with unlocking the secrets of the past brings him face-to-face with an adversary more personal and destructive than any other he has known.

Joining Guy Pearce on Jack’s final journey are Marta Dusseldorp as journalist Linda Hillier, Roy Billing as horse racing identity Harry Strang, Aaron Pedersen as Harry’s trusted off-sider Cam Delray, Shane Jacobson as old-school detective Barry Tregear, Kate Atkinson as IT-guru Simone, Damien Richardson as Jack’s former legal partner Drew, Bob Franklin as hapless career criminal Brendan O’Grady, Jacek Koman as Linda’s former journalist husband, Damien Garvey as Stan, the Prince of Prussia publican, and the inimitable Fitzroy Youth Club, Terry Norris and John Flaus.

An impressive line-up of guest stars including Gary Sweet, Alison Whyte, Genevieve Picot, Matt Testro, Robert Rabiah and Nicole Nabout also join Jack for this thrilling and moving conclusion. 

Created by the highly regarded creative team of Matt Cameron, Andrew Knight and Andrew Anastasios, the series is written by showrunner Matt Cameron (Sunshine, Secret City), Andrew Knight (Rake, Hacksaw Ridge), Andrew Anastasios (The Water Diviner, Wentworth) and Alli Parker (Secret Bridesmaids’ Business, Miss Fisher’s Modern Murder Mysteries).  All four episodes are directed by Greg McLean (The Gloaming, Wolf Creek).

The first two Jack Irish telemovies Bad Debts and Black Tide were broadcast on ABC in 2012 followed by Dead Point in 2014. The first Jack Irish series of six episodes screened in 2016. The second series was broadcast in 2018.

Production Credits: An Easy Tiger Production for ABC in association with Film Victoria. Producers: Ian Collie, Matt Cameron and Jo Rooney. Executive Producers: Rob Gibson and Andrew Knight. ABC Executive Producers: Brett Sleigh and Sally Riley. Distributed internationally by DCD Rights.
