Only a week after its second season finale, ABC has confirmed a third season for Janet King, featuring Marta Dusseldorp.
The prospects were good following consistent ratings across its second season, including an intense season finale. An 8 part series for the Crownies spin-off will return in 2017.
ABC TV’s Acting Head of Fiction Alastair McKinnon says: “We are delighted to have audience favourite Marta Dusseldorp bring her immense talents back for a third season of thrilling drama in Janet King, where we have plenty of surprises in store.”
Screentime’s Head of Drama Greg Haddrick says “Janet King has been embraced by audiences and critics alike, and we look forward to her continued quest for justice with an innate ability to unravel the mysteries that lurk beneath a façade of decency.”
Janet King is produced for the ABC by Screentime, a Banijay Group company, made with the financial assistance of Screen NSW, with DCD Rights handling international sales. It is produced by Karl Zwicky with Screentime’s Greg Haddrick and the ABC’s Kym Goldsworthy and Alastair McKinnon as executive producers, and Hilary Bonney and Marta Dusseldorp as associate producers.
A third season will go into production later this year.
