The successful Australian ABC Television series Fisk may return for Season 3.
Season 3 of Fisk was commissioned by ABC in November 2021 and released in 2022. It was filmed in North Melbourne, the same as Season 1, but this time without as many restrictions due to the pandemic.
Starring (and written by) Kitty Flanagan as Helen Tudor-Fisk, she has won three separate awards for her work on the show. Fisk also won Best Television Comedy Series at the 2021 AACTA Awards.
The storyline follows Flanagan's character, a lawyer whose life unravels professionally and personally, prompting her to relocate from Sydney to Melbourne.
When Could Fisk Season 3 Release?
Following Season 2 last airing in November 2022, Season 3 of Fisk has yet to be green-lit.
Fisk star Julia Zemiro (who portrays Roz Gruber) shared with Yahoo! that she's hopeful for a Season 3, but it all starts with Kitty and Penny Flanagan writing a script:
"So Kitty and Penny are tonight working, and touring a lot doing Kitty’s show. So it’s really about, have they written it?"
In addition, Zemiro admitted that she feels "Season 2 ended on this beautiful kind of finish" but is still "crossing all [her] fingers and all [her] toes" that a Season 3 is made:
"I also feel like Season 2 ended on this beautiful kind of finish. She became partner, right? So-- but look, as Kitty likes to say, we’re happily writing one. Who knows if it gets made? So I’m crossing all my fingers and all my toes.”
Giving some hope for Season 3, Fisk began streaming on Netflix and gaining popularity. According to The Sydney Morning Herald, Fisk was among the top 10 shows worldwide in its second week, following an initial week when Season 1 secured a top 10 spot in seven countries.
Season 2, commissioned in November 2021, premiered on October 26, 2022, with an approximately 11-month production cycle. Considering this timeline, if Fisk Season 3 were commissioned in 2024, it would likely not be released until late 2024 or early 2025.
