Miss Fisher’s Murder Mysteries Returns with Season 3!

admin. 24th April 2015

Miss Fisher is back! Don't believe me? See for yourselves below. 🙂

Here's the exciting part. Not only was filming underway, but it is now complete and series 3 will begin airing in Australia on Friday, May 8, 2015 at 8:30pm on ABC TV.


Now I may not be in Australia myself and therefore have to wait, but this news has me excited. This means that we are closer to series 3 airing on Netflix (streaming) and PBS!

I am clearly getting ahead of myself though. For those of you who have yet to discover Miss Fisher and her friend's let me try to give you a quick synopsis of the show.

Miss Fisher's Murder Mysteries is based on the Phryne Fisher Mysteries written by Kerry Greenwood. The Australian television series is set in the 1920's and is the story of the Honourable Phryne Fisher, a wealthy, independent private detective who doesn't hold back in living her life. With the help of her friends, Miss Fisher solves crimes and helps those who seek her help, including the constabulary kind in the form of Detective Inspector Jack Robinson.

Miss Fisher's Murder Mysteries is currently available on Netflix and maybe airing in your territory, since it has been sold to over 120 territories worldwide. In the US, Miss Fisher's Murder Mysteries airs on PBS.

I reached out to Every Cloud Productions in anticipation of this new season to see if they could give us any insight.

1.  Currently, MFMM is available on Netflix and Amazon Instant. Will it become available via iTunes soon?

We hope so – we are currently developing a plan for international roll out, including iTunes.

2. Is there an official synopsis for Series 3 that can be shared with fans?

Miss Phryne Fisher will grace our television screens once again with A the eagerly-anticipated third series of the hugely popular and award-winning Miss Fisher’s Murder Mysteries. 

Essie Davis returns in the lead role of our glamorous and thoroughly modern lady sleuth of the 1920's.  Independent, glamorous and unflappable, Miss Phryne Fisher will continue to fight against injustice with her pearl-handled pistol and her dagger-sharp wit.

3.  How soon after airing in Australia do you anticipate Series 3 being made available to the rest of its fanbase across the world?

Hopefully, very soon but dates are tbc.
