What Will Happen in Harry Wild Season 3?

Season 3 of Harry Wild will pick up where Season 2 left off, following the dramatic investigative pursuits of Jane Seymour's Harriet "Harry" Wild. 

According to the official press release for the series, Season 3 will center (at least to start) on the conquest of Fergus and Harry to contest the custody of Samantha Mumba's Paula:

"Season 3 picks up where season two left off with Fergus, guided by Harry, planning to contest Paula’s custody claim to Liberty. But it is not plain sailing and there are some surprises in store along the way. The agency is still as busy as ever and Harry and Fergus have to find a way to balance work and life."

All this will happen as new cases come across their desk week to week, looking into everything from the death of an Irish boy band idol to the murder of a soap opera director:

"This time out they’re hired to prove the lead singer of Ireland’s hottest boy band didn’t kill himself, find out who decapitated a woman in a busy restaurant and served her head on a platter, discover who murdered a despotic director on the set of Ireland’s leading daytime soap opera and work out how a mystery writer managed to shoot himself in a locked panic room without a gun."

Harry will also have to grapple with a case that is more personal than ever before when a "good friend" from her past "calls on her for help when her estranged husband turns up dead:"

"Closer to home, a good friend of Harry’s calls on her for help when her estranged husband turns up dead in her fishpond and Harry and Fergus, along with Charlie, Orla and Lola, are in the midst of the action when a grieving father forces them to solve his daughter’s case."

In her personal life, the series' central detective will be confronted with the proposition of love for the first time in a while as "a charming fellow private detective" comes into her life, making her question if she can trust her dashing compatriot:

"Elsewhere, love is in the air when Glenn decides the time has come to pop the question to his long-time girlfriend, the light-fingered, Petra. And while love doesn’t run so smoothly for Fergus and Lola this time out, Harry meets a charming fellow private detective and finds herself falling for him even though she’s not sure she can trust him and finds him utterly infuriating."

Harry Wild Season 3 will be released on May 13 on Acorn TV and BBC America.
