Get out your go-go boots, as the second season of the acclaimed Acorn TV Original series Ms. Fisher’s Modern Murder Mysteries returns internationally on Monday, June 7 on Acorn TV across the US, Canada, Australia and New Zealand. The series will debut with two episodes, with premieres every Monday through July 19.
A spinoff of the Australian sensation Miss Fisher’s Murder Mysteries, the swinging 1960’s crime series Ms. Fisher’s Modern Murder Mysteries follows the fearless and spirited Peregrine Fisher (Logie Award-nominated Geraldine Hakewill, Wanted), the niece of world-class adventuress and private detective Phryne Fisher, as she inherits a windfall from her famous aunt and sets out to become an exceptional sleuth in her own right.
As murders continue to plague the streets of 1964 Melbourne, daring detective Peregrine Fisher tackles her trickiest assignment yet: juggling her career, the busy life of an Adventuress, and her romance with Detective James Steed (Joel Jackson, Peter Allen: Not the Boy Next Door, Deadline Gallipolli.) Playful but never mocking, exuberant but never naive, Peregrine Fisher continues her mission to do the legacy of her famous aunt justice, to find her way in changing times and to make a difference in the world.
This season, while Peregrine investigates cases at an air hostess school, a dog show, and a bowling alley, Birdie Birnside (Catherine McClements, Wentworth) reignites her spying career with an old flame, and Violetta (Louisa Mignone) and Samuel (Toby Truslove) struggle to contain their passion. Despite their busy lives, the gang have Peregrine’s back; because the modern road to happy-ever-after isn’t always rosy and staying true to oneself can sometimes mean hurting those you love.
