DESCRIPTION:
(from Acorn TV's press release, July 2020) After licensing the first season, AMC Networks' Acorn TV returns to commission the second season of Ms. Fisher's Modern Murder Mysteries with Acorn Media Enterprises from Every Cloud Productions in association with all3media international. From the creators of global sensation Miss Fisher's Murder Mysteries, Fiona Eagger and Deb Cox, this 1960s-set spinoff features the fearless, fun, and charmingly down-to-earth Peregrine Fisher (Logie-nominated Geraldine Hakewill, Wanted) in the lead role as Phryne Fisher's niece who inherited a windfall from her famous aunt and sets out to become a world-class private detective in her own right. Called a "vivacious crime series (standing) alone and above any comparisons to the original series" by IndieWire and "clever crime fare" by The New York Times, Season 1 exclusively premiered on Acorn TV as four feature-length mysteries in the U.S. and Canada in April 2019. Season 2 will feature eight one-hour mysteries. The Acorn TV Original Series will begin production this October and exclusively premiere on Acorn TV in the United States, Canada, New Zealand, and in its home country on Acorn TV Australia in 2021 and thereafter on the Seven Network in Australia. Leading independent international distributor all3media international will manage distribution in the rest of the world. Season 1 took place in 1964 Melbourne - after Phryne went missing over the highlands of Papua New Guinea in her light plane - and her long-lost niece, the fearless Peregrine Fisher, took up her famous aunt's mantle. In Season 2, as crimes continue to unfold around her in the streets of 1960's Melbourne, our never-say-never sleuth tackles her biggest mysteries yet while juggling romance, a career, and the life of an Adventuress all at the same time. Just as Peregrine prepares to settle into her no-questions-asked courtship with noble policeman James, his desire for marriage brings the crime-fighters to a crossroad on possibly divergent paths. After their combined, valiant efforts solving cases in department stores, TV studios, and cooking schools in Season 1, Peregrine, James and the rest of the team continue their journeys of self-discovery and romance, tackling some very tough questions about the role of men and women in changing times and facing a fun mix of mysteries involving sexual liberation, flight attendants, family prejudices, dog shows, teen gang wars, bowling alleys, pigeon-racing, and ending the season with a murder at a New Year's Eve party.
