Cameras roll on Rake’s third season

56rakeCast members have been announced for the third season of Rake, currently in production in Sydney.

Richard Roxburgh is back as Cleaver Greene, along with Matt Day, Danielle Cormack, Russell Dykstra, Caroline Brazier, Adrienne Pickering, Kate Box, Damien Garvey, Robyn Malcolm, and Steve Le Marquand.

Guest stars include Elizabeth Debicki (The Great Gatsby), Magda Szubanski, Dan Wyllie, Bruce Spence, Aden Young, and Genevieve Lemon.

ABC TV Head of Fiction Carole Sklan said, “The incomparable Richard Roxburgh as the irrepressible Cleaver Greene is unfailingly entertaining. Series three of Rake plunges us into more heights and depths of human folly.”

Co-creator Peter Duncan, who again collaborates with writer Andrew Knight said, “I am absolutely confident that my absence from set this year will attract even more amazing talent and inspire our fabulous cast and crew to greater heights.”

Ian Collie of Essential Media is producing the third series with Peter Duncan, Richard Roxburgh and Jessica Hobbs. Hobbs again directs alongside Jonathan Teplitzky, Rowan Woods and Kate Dennis.

The ABC series returns in 2014 whilst the US adaptation starring Greg Kinnear premieres in September on FOX with Peter Duncan, Richard Roxburgh and Ian Collie as co-executive producers.


  1. Elizabeth Debicki almost out-babed the lovely Carey Mulligan in The Great Gatsby! I’m guessing she’ll be another Cleaver Greene conquest?

  2. We may have to wait to see the US version. The Australian reported that the ABC insisted the US version not be shown in Australia before they show the 3rd series, when the sold the rights.

  3. So happy that this show is returning. The first two seasons were awesome. The guest line up is also a cool edition to the upcoming season.

  4. I love that this is going to a 3rd series. Such a well written and acted drama. I loved the supporting cast and the twists and turns in the lives affected by Cleaver Greene.
