Acorn TV have just renewed the TV adaptation of Agatha Raisin for a third season. The four episode season will consist of adaptations of The Haunted House, The Deadly Dance, The Love from Hell, and As The Pig Turns. Free@Last TV’s Barry Ryan and David Walton return as series producers, while Acorn Media Enterprises boss Catherine Mackin and Company Pictures Michelle Buck are the executive producers. Production on season three gets underway in July 2019.
"After a groundbreaking year with commissioning the second series of Agatha Raisin as well as London Kills and Queens of Mystery, my colleagues at Acorn TV are thrilled by the continued popularity of Agatha Raisin so it was an easy decision to renew it for a third season with even more episodes", said Catherin Mackin. "M.C. Beaton and Ashley Jensen have created the world’s most fashionable and entertaining amateur detective. We’re excited to partner with Barry Ryan, David Walton and Michele Buck on another series of one of Britain’s most enjoyable mystery series."
Barry Ryan, Executive Producer and Creative Director of Free@Last TV, added: "We are delighted that our partners at Acorn TV have decided to renew Agatha Raisin for a further four feature-length episodes. Even though our instincts told us it would work, the reformat was a gamble. We are excited and overjoyed that it paid off and to be bringing our wonderful cast of characters led by the brilliant Ashley Jensen back for more."
