The Case Of The Missing Third Season Of ‘Miss Fisher’s Murder Mysteries’

Missfisherspy2Think all television is the same? You would almost be right. The network power heads have systematically dumbed down the average viewer’s programming diet. Why? Well most consume instead of savor. It is a matter of taste.

The very same unwashed viewing public tune in weekly to knuckle dragging reality shows that are an insult to the cornea and yet they can garner higher ratings than a real piece of entertainment. So why should we bother to create art? The question was rhetorical.

And yet, on a rare occasion a new show comes along that delights its viewers. Of course I am speaking about Australia’s hit Miss Fisher’s Murder Mysteries

The show is one of the ABC’s (Australia Broadcasting Company) hit Dramas, pulling audiences of around 900,000 on Friday nights, but Miss Fisher’s Murder Mysteries is in doubt for a third season.

The stylish smartly produced period drama stars the incredible Essie Davis as Phryne Fisher, Lady detective who solves crimes, all while looking amazing. Essie Davis is La Jazz Hot.

missfisherspyBut it is storm clouds ahead when Miss Fisher’s Murder Mysteries wasn’t announced as returning for 2014 in this week’s ABC Programming Launch. (Shut your Mouth)

Producer Fiona Eagger tells SPY that ABC has yet to come to a decision and time is running out to retain cast and begin script development. What is there to think about? The show is brilliant.

“I believe there’s a desire from the ABC for a third series, I think they’re very proud of the show. It’s got very loyal following and it’s doing outstandingly well in terms of ratings on Friday nights and overseas,” she said.

“But I think what the ABC is struggling with is that they’ve had budget cuts and they’ve got a lot of potentially-returning shows. They’ve got an embarrassment of riches.

“So they haven’t gone into development or commissioned a third series.”

I now own the DVD of season 1 and on pre-ordered season 2. The show is so refreshing and while set in the jazz age, seems modern with current subject matters. Once discovered, I can not imagine having to go back to the way it was before we had our Phryne.

An ABC spokesperson confirmed to SPY, “No decision has been made either way.”

This week ABC announced 12 new and returning Dramas including the Crownies reboot Janet King, ANZAC Girls, Broken Shore, Old School, Jack Irish, Dr. Blake Mysteries and the drama poster child, Rake.

None compare to Miss Fisher’s.

Essie Davis was invited to the ABC 2014 launch party but was unavailable to attend.

With so many upcoming Dramas series, Eagger is concerned Miss Fisher may fall victim to a crowded production slate. If that is the case bring the show here to America. Our team here at SPY will fund and produce it.

“I think they might forward-commit sometimes so there might be a change of practice. They’re anticipating bringing in the reins a little bit more, so the next year there is going to be a little bit tougher on Drama,” she said.

“The word we’re getting is that there’s a bit of a squeeze going on for the Drama dollar. Whether that’s internally or in anticipation of an external force I’m not sure. I think it’s something audiences and practitioners have to watch -that the ABC Drama dollar is not eroded.”

But the indecision may also stem from ABC’s ongoing desire to attract younger viewers.

Last week Director of Television Richard Finlayson told SPY when I called to complain, “the broadcaster was looking to attract broad audiences and change was coming.”

“Possibly fewer, but bigger Dramas. Taking bigger risks and bigger punts,” he said. I like to punt him right out.

“’Fewer, bigger, better’ is an idea across the whole slate, really. We need to push our resources behind some bigger bets.”

The Drama’s popularity through ABC’s iview is evidence it has a broad audience and says the show is family viewing for teens and parents. Phryne Fisher as an ideal female role model.

“I think if you look at Friday night figures alone, yes you would think it was skewing older, but I think that’s actually under-estimating it’s reach,” she says.

It does not take a brain surgeon to know the every coveted 18-24 market is hard to reach in a time slot they historically are not viewing programming. But times are changing to a new time of on demand programs and outlets that promote content, when and where you want to watch your favorite programs.

“I feel like there is an obsession at the ABC, and probably all broadcasters, about ‘Where is the Television audience?’ and feeling like they are losing younger viewers and (wondering) how can they push into that 25-50 age bracket? But I believe we have a lot of supporters in that age bracket as well.”

Miss Fisher is also popular overseas, distributed through All 3 Media into the UK and Europe. It also screens on Netflix in the US.

“All 3 Media can’t even understand why we are having this debate,” said Eagger.

We think would make a great addition to the Netflix slate of shows.

Meanwhile, an online petition at has attracted fans from around the world including the US, UK, NZ, Poland, Latvia, Russia, Czech Republic, Mexico, Singapore, Sweden and more.

James Newburrie from Clayton, who started the petition, writes:

The show has become a cultural touchstone and an educational experience for people my age and younger. Miss Fisher has taught me about:

    • Period fashions;
    • Pre-suffrage women’s rights; and,
    • The underlying tensions in Australian society of the time.

Miss Fisher’s Murder Mysteries are critical to the mission of the ABC not merely because it is only show worth watching on Friday night, but because it may be the only show on Australian television which is still ‘appointment viewing’.

Miss Fisher’s Murder Mysteries is an ideal representation of the new programs that could be and are taking the world by storm. That if allowed to grow, it will produce the revenue potential and production quality recognition the network desires. .

“We need the go ahead to be on screen in 2015.

Richard buy a letter , get a clue and solve the mystery of Miss Fisher’s Murder Mysteries Season 3

    Miss Fisher’s Murder Mysteries is an outstanding show, that needs to be continued. The cast is remarkable. The scripts are well written. Research in time period is spot on. Everybody that help in the making of this fine production should be proud of their efforts. We the viewers are immensely grateful to the care and dedication that shows in every episode. It is a shame that the powers to be spend no time in watching what a great show they have. I was giving season 1 dvd as a gift. I fell in love with the show. I have since purchased 2 and 3. PBS station in USA is showing the series. The quality is of the highest and Fiona Eagger and Deb Cox should be commended on recognizing the books by Kerry Greenwood and turning these into a high class series. PLEASE keep the cast together and fine a way of continuing to produce this beautiful highly entertaining show on the air.

  2. Vivian Gu  May 28, 2016 at 9:01 pm

    This been a wonderful series. Why are we closing the great ones? Do TV producers think we do not like well done thought provoking programs? Think again.

  3. Lavinia  May 8, 2016 at 10:20 pm

    I love this show. Can’t get enough. Just finished binge watching all three seasons. I was disappointed that season three ended with only eight shows. Bring back Phrne Fisher, best entertainment I have seen in years.

    I stumbled onto Miss Fisher on Netflix. I can’t remember when I’ve enjoyed TV more. Keep it coming

  6. luisa  July 16, 2015 at 5:54 pm

    Please bring back the show if it isn’t already too late to keep the cast. There are so many programs but such a small number that are different.

  7. Darlene Doucet  April 25, 2015 at 10:08 pm

    Please bring Miss Fisher to America. I’m so tired trying to get information about the third season and don’t know where to go. I just can’t miss out on the series. I’ve got the first and second, but need the third. Can anyone out there help me with the when and where? Thanks.

  8. rosalind  April 23, 2015 at 1:10 pm

    bring Miss Fisher to America , don’t let it die. It is a fantastic show and all the charcters are wonderful. Everyone does a fantastic job with their character.

  11. Dolly  January 19, 2015 at 8:17 am

    I ADORE “Miss Fisher!” I discovered this show in the US on Netflix. I can’t wait for the third season.

    I truly love Miss Fisher’s Murder Mysteries. There are none being aired right now (1/7/15). When will the viewing audience be able to see Phrynie and her Police Commissioner. YOU HAVE TO CONTINUE THIS SERIES. With so much garbage and trash on TV any more, it is wonderful to see something that is still clean and decent. Please post when the 3rd Season will begin. Thanks.

  13. sherri and John  October 25, 2014 at 8:20 pm

    We love the show and watch it every Saturday. It is the only regular weekly show we watch. Please bring it back with its all star cast.

      You’ll be pleased to know that Miss Fisher IS indeed coming back for another new season! With help from our readers and their comment, minds were swayed to continue on. We had made an update story here … … or you can find the post on our home page of SPYHollywood or on our Weekend Edition link as well. Thanks for your support!

    Think Murdoch Mysteries, which is the only other TV worth watching. 8 seasons. HELLO. Are you people at ABC idiots or what? You really don’t pay attention to what people are really watching, or basically don’t care, you’re so busy thinking old school. If you go under, it will be your own fault for not paying attention. So many of us can’t stand “reality shows” which by their own admission, aren’t real at all, but staged. Any moron can see that, and they even admit it. Talk about dumbing down. And why on earth don’t you understand that other countries crave what you can give them that they can’t get at home? It’s why British TV is so popular in the US. We’re tired of laugh tracks and fake reality. Can you say Acorn? Do you even know about Acorn? And duh. Do you not see that costume drama is craved right now? Steampunk? Downton Abbey? HELLO. ZZZZZ. WAKE UP CALL. Fire the old buzzards.

  15. Marsha Ballard  October 19, 2014 at 8:25 pm

    I love this show. We here in America have nothing good to watch. I rely on British, Canadian and Australian producers to give me well made interesting shows. Please bring Miss Fisher back!!!

  16. Cristina  July 26, 2014 at 7:42 pm

    The show must be brought back!! Little did I know that I was going to fall so in love with Miss Fisher. I was intrigued the instant I read the description on Netflix, the show was just what I was looking for. It scopes such fine detail, so refreshing from all the other current airing shows. I’m 18 & have an aficionado for the 20s, this was nowhere near a let down. I’m going to go mad if this is to be another show I absolutely adore cancelled

  17. Veronica  July 24, 2014 at 7:10 am

    Please bring back Miss Prynne, I have read all Kerry books and love the serious so much have a lot of people who are watching. I get it on Acorn-TV and want more. So if you do not want to make bring it across the pond, I am sure the UK or USA no what to do with this gold mine. I love you Miss Fisher’s and the cast, crews and everyone who put the show on the air.

  18. Charlene Coulter  July 20, 2014 at 8:16 pm

    I am another American who has recently found the show on the PBS stations here in the states and have enjoyed all the characters. Phrynie is fun and crazy and does what you wish you had the courage to do. I hope ABC gives the go ahead for a third season.

  19. Tracy Taylor  July 17, 2014 at 7:29 pm

    Miss Fisher is a fantastic show and I do hope ABC brings it back soon. I can’t stand all the crap on t.v. and I wonder why I even have cable when PBS would suit me just fine. What I see on ABC and recent years music and awards programs is a poor reflection of a sad majority of people whose taste is just BAD! Bring a great show back for those seeking better entertainment.

  20. Rebecca White  July 16, 2014 at 6:37 pm

    PLEASE Continue this show!!!

  21. Melanie  July 16, 2014 at 3:51 am

    Good news: the ABC in Australia announced the series would continue with a third season being announced in June. Production begins in October 2014. Thank goodness! As an Australian fan it’s been a real pleasure to have both the show and see it strike a chord in so many countries. and

    champagne cocktails all around!

      Thank you Melanie for the great news! We will be spreading that news.

  22. Becky  July 8, 2014 at 5:31 pm

    I am yet another American (Texas) who is hoping this show will continue. PLEASE do more seasons of this show!!!!!!
    I am in complete agreement with all of the others writing from around the world saying that this show (and shows like this) are the kinds we want to see instead of all of the other rubbish (reality shows; stupid vampire and zombie shows; super hero & fantasy shows; and gory, unrealistic hard core crime shows) that show up on our TV channels. I got rid of cable because I very rarely find a US show that I enjoy. It wasn’t worth paying the bill for all of the trash I wasn’t interested in watching anyways. By the way, I am also in the 25-50 age group the TV networks say they are trying to reach.

  23. Daphne Kilnan  July 6, 2014 at 4:52 am

    Get rid of some of the reality programmes and bring back real entertainment like Miss Fisher, a joy to watch.

    Miss Fishers Murder Mysteries gives me an insite into Australia in the early 1900’s. I enjoy not only the Australia of that period but the main characters of the series.

  26. teri  June 24, 2014 at 1:07 pm

    Found this series on Netflix and have been addicted ever since. American who hates most American programs so I desperately need my Miss Fisher.

  27. NT  June 22, 2014 at 11:24 am

    PLEASE PLEASE….MUST continue the series. Found it by accident and have watched them all..LOVE IT!!

  28. NT  June 22, 2014 at 11:23 am

    I ran across this series by accident and LOVE IT…I have been wondering where Season 3 was!! Need to continue it for sure!! PLEASE!!!

  29. Margo Allen  June 19, 2014 at 10:29 am

    PLEASE SAVE MISS FISHER. I bumped into the series when I started Netflix on May 2, 2014. I have become addicted. I watched all 12 shows of the first season and couldn’t wait for Season 2. So I bought season 1 and 2 on DVD. I have watched all 26 episodes 3 times. It is so refreshing to see a show on TV that has substance — not just another series with dull-characters who solve mysteries with unbelievable forensics. The series takes me to another place and another time. In a way, it is a little like a history lesson – only with more fun. I hate to think that we are losing the opportunity to keep these characters (and the production company) alive.

  30. Renee Franco  June 12, 2014 at 3:00 pm

    Phrynie Fisher series is outstanding. ABC Australia isn’t aware of the popularity of the show in the U.S. We know ABC Australia is aware but don’t care. Best series in years. Yes, Downton Abbey is outstanding and popular world wide with me included but may I have another series to enjoy.

  31. Cordelia Hatton - Lee  June 12, 2014 at 2:48 am

    Please, please make another…lots of others!
    I’m in the UK so can’t see it on TV, but I have all the DVDs, it’s one of my favourite things.
    There is so much utter trash on television nowadays, that revolting “reality” nonsense just for starters. This is quality, and she’s a woman who isn’t in the repellent reality type mould or some murder or rape victim, which seems to be the other unpleasant scenario now.
    Why on earth would they not make another? It seems to be very popular so therefore must surely be making them money.

  32. Rene P.  June 5, 2014 at 8:19 pm

    Where strong women have real and emotional connections with other strong women. Where secure men have respectful relationships with women. What a perfect role model for both girls and boys of ALL ages. Thank for the gift of two seasons… looking forward to more!

  33. MCM  June 4, 2014 at 2:35 pm

    We live in the US and just discovered Phrynie Fisher on Netflix. We are totally addicted to Miss Fisher and her mysteries and her friends and her home and her fabulous wardrobe. I’ll be really sad if we can’t look forward to her third season and fourth and fifth! Great fun!

    Yet again it seems that rubbish tv wins again. Miss Fisher is original, well cast with wonderful story lines. Wake up ABC, having spent a month and half in your wonderful country and seen some of the rubbish tv there, you should be not only be making a third season but secure it for many more.

  36. Mary Ann Doty  May 27, 2014 at 8:28 pm

    My husband and I have discovered this gem and find it to be one of the best shows on TV. We may have our own murder mysteries in the USA but nothing compares to Miss Fisher Mysteries. The cast of characters are alive and rich with personality and the plots are full of intrigue and wit. It is so great to have a period piece which lets me see into another culture with class and beauty. Please bring this special series back for a third season. Hoping for a miracle as I miss Phrynie and the whole cast. Sad in the USA 🙁

  37. Marcella  May 26, 2014 at 11:44 am

    I’m another diehard fan of Phryne Fisher; there are quite a few of us here in Brazil as well. It’s curious how American networks and online content providers such as Netflix and Amazon haven’t taken notice of this gem yet. I’m keeping my fingers crossed. Somebody mentioned an online petition. I’m happily going to google and sign that…

  38. Sherry  May 23, 2014 at 10:42 am

    This show is wonderful! How can they even consider not renewing it? It is well acted, intriguingly presented-and the sets are well done and the clothing is beautiful. Perhaps someone in the US will have the sense to pick it up-but then if you see what we have to choose from it probably isn’t going to happen. There really should be several more seasons.

  39. Amiche  May 21, 2014 at 9:18 am

    I am in Ireland, but a big fan! It is time the big channels realise they are not just making their shows for their ‘native’ viewers. They are selling their stuff all over the world. The internet has also made viewing a different experience, via the likes of Netflix and Amazon and iTunes.
    They are still thinking in time slots and direct competition on other channels, which is nonsense nowadays. Selling the show abroad is revenue and they can make returns on ads online as well.

    There is such a thing as crowd funding – maybe that is a way to bring Miss Fisher back to our screens? I signed the petition and if everyone pitched in like a dollar – I don’t know, it might work? Viewers and fans should be more in charge anyway 🙂

  40. coe  May 12, 2014 at 1:46 pm

    i will be HEARTSICK if this series isn’t renewed. there is such junk on television…and here this show is magnificent. please ABC do the right thing and order another season. PLEASE

  41. Heidi  May 11, 2014 at 4:24 pm

    I’m in the 25-50 range, but I’m in the US so my demographic doesn’t count. So very sad to see that this intelligent, beautiful show’s future is questionable.

  42. Adeline  May 11, 2014 at 1:29 am

    miss Fisher is a wonderful series. I adore it. I can’t understand why they’re actually hesitating about making a third season. It’s so interesting: each episode is a new discovery of the society of that time. Good series are so scarce!!!! We are also great fans here in France. PLEASE MAKE A THIRD SEASON! Miss Fisher is such a great woman. She is a model for young women.

  43. bonnie  May 8, 2014 at 5:45 pm

    This is “crazy”!!! ABC you must run more seasons of this absolutely great program! We here in British Columbia have been fumbling around watching every Friday for some kind of scheduling for more prgramming. As a network, you finally get it right, where mid aged viewers have some quality programming and sure as the sun sets…it get pulled for some average shows. This program is funny, its is well written, scripted, clever story lines and unusally interesting period piece that normally wouldn’t make it in todays favorites but this one DOES. Bring them back soon, as 2015 is toooo late! Fingers are crossed here in the north!

  44. Denise  May 7, 2014 at 11:50 pm

    So tired of Reality T.V! When we watched an episode of Miss Fisher for the first time one Friday night we were very impressed. The episodes are visually Colourful with quick and witty dialogue.
    So enjoyable to watch that we just knew it wouldn’t last long on t.v. Never fails that when you find a real gem of a show worth sitting down for they cancel or simply don’t renew the series.

    Hope to see a season 3 in the future but not holding my breath. It was too good to last .

    I’ve always loved Miss Fisher. I’ve watched the episodes so many times I’ve lost count. Phyrne is amazing and I’m sure everyone who has seen her has fallen in love with Essie and the rest of cast. There should definitely be a season 3!!

    I fell in love with this show! Living in Los Angeles I see a dozen new reality shows a week, but quality dramas like MFMM are truly few and far between! Please don’t let this show die- Write, tweet, Facebook, email, contact ABC and let them know that you watch! The more of us that make a fuss the more likely it is that ABC will keep the show going!

  50. anita  April 4, 2014 at 9:13 pm

    I love phryne I live in the US and she is amazing. I purchased acorn tv for 2 reasons midsommer murders and phryne fisher. She needs to have a 3rd series Phryne is great image for women. She is strong and lovable at the same time. You have to bring her back.

  51. Bunny  April 2, 2014 at 6:23 pm

    There has been such an international outpouring for Season 3 for MFMM. This show is so unique, entertaining and visually appealing. No time in TV history have we seen a successful Costume Exhibition stemming from a TV show. Fans from around the world have appealed to ABC1 for MFMM to be renewed. The MFMM Facebook page has fans who go online daily to discover any news about renewing this series for another season. Now Essie Davis has scored a nomination for a Silver Logie for most popular actress, as well as the show being considered for a Logie as the Best Drama. We have been waiting 6 months to hear some news about ABC1 commissioning Season 3. Why we are having to wait this long to hear any news is troublesome. The longer they wait, it lessens the likelihood of the complete cast returning because of other acting obligations.

    Fans from around the world have petitioned ABC1 to renew MFMM, which makes this show unique. The show’s fan base reaches the States, UK, Canada, Russia, Latvia, New Zealand, Poland, Russia, Singapore, Mexico, Sweden and the Czech Republic, and others. This program has such a unique appeal to such a broad based audience, that it would be “penny wise and pound foolish” not to recommission a Season 3.

  52. bindy  April 1, 2014 at 1:51 pm

    Excellent witty drama enjoyed by all my family here in the UK. It would be a shame for it not to continue

    I live in the uk and this series is what makes excellent quality viewing for all ages. It would be a waste of an excellent opportunity if ABC failed to continue this deligbtful witty drama

    Why is it’s return based on young viewers? There are plenty of mature viewers who would like to see it rturn for a third season. I wwould like to see it on American TV.

  55. Herring  March 29, 2014 at 12:01 pm

    Please make a third season of this enjoyable show. ABC do the right thing and allow a talented show to exist instead of the terrible reality shows. This is an outstanding show so please support it. We are watching.

    After discovering this show on Netflix recently (I live in the US) – of which only Season 1 is currently available – I’m a huge fan of Miss Fisher’s Murder Mysteries! The show is entertaining, gorgeous and obviously has a big draw, so where’s the hesitation in having a Season 3?

  58. leslie gallagher  March 27, 2014 at 9:09 pm

  59. Helen  March 26, 2014 at 3:56 am

    Love Miss Fisher – there must be a third season – this show is so great – period costumes, finding out more about the 1920s in Australia. I made sure I was available to watch this show every Friday night and I then bought all the DVDs to view as I pleased – what a show!!!! It must be brought back – I don’t watch ABC on Friday nights now.

  60. marla and david USA  March 24, 2014 at 5:34 pm

    We love watching Miss Fisher and the whole cast. The show is fresh and love the time period, the great cars and the costumes. We want another season!!!!

  61. Pam in NC, USA  March 23, 2014 at 3:19 pm

    This is my favorite show of all time. I can’t believe this show with real acting excellent setting and costumes would be passed over. Well NBC I won’t be watching your other shows! Give us back our Phrynie!!!

  62. Mike in Amereica  March 21, 2014 at 11:13 pm

    Just reviewed the first season of Miss Fisher’s Mysteries. It is unusual TV and quite entertaining. I am looking forward to reviewing the second sease, I am very disappointed that it appears there will be no third season. Such a shame.

    Mike in the United States

  63. veronika  March 18, 2014 at 10:19 pm

    I have been waiting and searching for the missing Miss Fisher Friday nights! I can’t believe that there haven’t been more series filmed yet! It is absolutely our favourite murder mystery. Great cast, witty, intelligent stories, romance, suspense, great settings, wardrobe! I do so hope that someone will continue this series.

  64. Kimberly  March 17, 2014 at 1:02 pm

    I am thoroughly disgusted by networks that eschew wonderful programs like Miss Fisher in favor of “knuckle dragging reality shows” (excellent turn of phrase by the article writer). I do not watch a wide variety of shows, but am intensely loyal to those I do watch and may just give up altogether on TV if MFMM doesn’t ultimately get renewed.

    And two thumbs up to the reviewer who mentioned Nathan Page – he and Essie Davis are absolutely fabulous as Jack and Phryne!

  65. Em Skmpson  March 16, 2014 at 7:48 am

    Never mind Essie Davis (absolutely fabulous) what about the absolutely gorgeous Nathan Page ???
    Please please please keep this wonderful series going. Australia does this period setting so well – Melbourne still has plenty of the 20s/30s architecture on show – flaunt it for heaven’s sake!!

    If Miss Fisher Mysteries doesn’t get a third season I will be so disappointed. It is the best show I have ever watched. I watched her on Netflix and I am fascinated by the show. My grand daughters, nieces and daughter in law all watch the show. Please Please give us Season 3 4 5 6 7 8 9…Why mess with something that works. If it ain’t broke don’t fix it.

    I just discovered the show here in the US thanks to my local PBS station. I’m working my way through the first series and will likely just go ahead buy both series on DVD as soon as possible. Renewing this show for another year should be a no brainer. I’ll go right away to sign the petition on and if there is need to write an actual physical letter and mail it to AUS then I’m quite happy to do that as well.

    I love the Miss Fisher’s Mysteries and have got all my friends hooked here in Johannesburg.

    Do not be this obstinate ABC…best mystery series and in its eighth year, as in Bones, it will be uniquely remembered and many will be loyal to the network that does not fail talent! If we have minds, we have interests and it is not reality tv…

    No season 3 for Miss Fisher would be like Conan Doyle sending Sherlock over the Reichenbach Falls. Like Sherlock let’s hope popular demand brings Phryne back to life while Essie can still play the part.

    We all have been waiting to hear an answer regarding a third season, I’m here in Germany and would not have missed watching Miss Fisher neither would my daughters in there twenties and one thirty, but not only us, no but my granddaughters love it they are ten and seven, and I have friends in all age groups that have told me they love the show. Money really this show would pay for it self and then some. Or is it people in the movie industry can not see a hit when they have it anymore, from some of the shows out there, well need I say more. Come on someone in the industry pick it up make some big money and make a lot of viewers happy in the process which is a win win. And keep the cast, it would not be the same with new people.

    Hi there! I’m writing from Italy and I love the one and only Phryne Fisher!! I think it’s one of the best shows ever produced,so why question the writing of a 3rd series? Ok, I know people in the biz mainly care about profits and so on and they have their hands full of many things but I hope they find a way to bring her back on the screen soon. VERY SOON.

    It is unthinkable that the ABC would be anything other than proud and boasting about their innovative, charming and clever Miss Fisher Mysteries! Where most television is dumbed down to the level of sixth graders Miss Fisher’s writers have brought fresh endearing stories and dialogue to the page and an outstanding cast has breathed life into every character endearing them to fans by the thousands. If a show of such quality and popularity can be so callously cast aside why should any viewer ever bother to invest in any show again. Personally, if Miss Fisher is murdered by the ABC, I may give up on television altogether.

    hello Canada here we love this show from 10 year olds to myself 50 ish its a great show and we view it through our local network supported by us we miss it

  75. Virginia  March 3, 2014 at 9:56 pm

    I can’t believe there is a hold on Season 3. This is one of the best on T.V. We look forward to
    watching every friday night. Hopefully you will get back to work on season 3

    I’m also in the desired demo (I’m 29) and see no reason it shouldn’t appeal to a wide variety of people.

    I’m also English and only heard of the show a month ago (via a DVD recommendation) proving the show has legs to grow its popularity!

  77. jo Morrison  February 26, 2014 at 6:32 pm

    Here in the us we lack for such wonderful shows so I have purchased the first two seasons and had hopes for many more. Can’t you work something out with BBC for Masterpiece Mysteries. Oh would be so wonderful to have a few seasons more of the wonderful Phryne Fisher – Please Jo Morrison in USA – NC

  78. Linda Williamson  February 22, 2014 at 10:55 pm

    I keep hoping something will be produced. It’s my favourite show and I am missing it.

  79. Aunt Gin  February 22, 2014 at 6:25 am

    I love Phrynie Fisher!! It would be a great loss to stop the show. I looked this one up because I hadn’t heard anything and I’ve been waiting!! I hate reality TV and it isn’t reality for the majority, it’s fake. I really hope they bring this show back for many more seasons

  80. lauren  February 21, 2014 at 2:16 pm

    There must be a season three! The cast is fabulous, every character perfectly developed and played. It is a feast for your eyes! This will soar in NY if some station had the vision to promote it. We have women of all ages talking about this show. It will do for down under TV what DR. Who did for BBC America….put it on the map for a consumer economy that will view and then buy everything Miss Fisher….A season three is a must do!

  81. Leah Sharpe  February 19, 2014 at 8:51 pm

    Miss Fishers Murder Mysteries is my favorite show! I love Phrynie! She is a fantastic, independant female. I find it delightful that she exist in this Art Deco era. She does what she wants with such grace and elegance. She is such fun to watch as she delves into solving these murders. She will do whatever it takes while wearing the most fabulous cloths! I love watching the delicious sexual attraction between her and Jack that simmers beneath the surface.. I will be very disappointed if there is no third season. Come on, this has the potential to be your biggest success! Give it more time. I live in the USA and pay to see it on Acorn TV!

    The Australian Broadcasting Corporation (ABC) is fully funded by the public purse, owned by the Australian Government. Since our last governmental change the stings have been tightened. The last time the Liberals tried to sell off the ABC the Australian Public let them know that this was unacceptable. In Australia the ABC is known as Aunty, and no one touches family. So the ABC is suffering from outside influences. Miss Fisher is sold worldwide, is very well made, popular and a great show. It could be too popular as it is making money, and that runs against a governmental policy of getting rid of excessive costs. You be the judge!

  83. Dawn Neri  February 19, 2014 at 5:01 am

    If ABC (AU) doesn’t want to renew, I’m all for them bring it to Netflix so we get more seasons. It would be a great addition for them with a built in market. Let’s just hope Ms. Eagger has the rights.

  84. KP  February 4, 2014 at 12:43 pm

    I’m in the desired demographic and I love this show. It’s hip, smart, beautifully acted and produced, and hugely entertaining. All it wants is bit more promotion. I’m in the U.S. and only just found it by chance. Come on, ABC, you’ve got huge market potential here. Bring on Season 3!

  85. Rosalyn Shrader  February 1, 2014 at 9:32 pm

    Miss Fisher’s Murder Mysteries is my absolute, all-time favorite murder mystery show. It has the proper balance of drama, humor, intrigue, and romance without being gory or filling the conversations with obscene language. The characters work well together and each has an important part in the scheme of things. It would be a shame and stupid choice of the powers-that-be not to continue the series.

  86. Gary Reid  January 29, 2014 at 5:02 am

    My wife and I love Phrynie. One of the best shows on ANY TV network. Right up there
    with Murdoch Mysteries and Sherlock.

    There MUST be a Season 3.
