In Mr Inbetween, Ryan reprises the role as the charismatic, yet volatile hit-man and also serves as the series writer. Driven by dark humour and off-beat conversation, the series follows Ray as he navigates his chilling business, while also maintaining friendships, parental responsibilities and a fledgling romance.
Pose screens on Tuesdays at 8:30pm, Mayans M.C. airs Wednesdays at 8:30pm and Mr Inbetween begins Mondays at 8.30pm from October 1 on Showcase.
