Foxtel’s Executive Director of Television Brian Walsh said: “The first season of Mr Inbetween was a hit with viewers and a critical success and we can’t wait to see what the brilliant creative team have in store for the new season. We are proud to bring these unique stories to Australian audiences and Mr Inbetween joins a huge line-up of Australian drama on Foxtel including Wentworth, Secret City, Lambs of God and two upcoming series Upright and The End.

Juggling a relationship, parental responsibilities, friendships and a sick brother while earning a living would be difficult for anyone, but it’s particularly difficult when you’re a criminal for hire.
Ray Shoesmith “takes care of people” — collecting debts, relieving them of drugs and guns, and often taking care of them on a more permanent basis. Ray demands respect and does not tolerate it when someone disregards his very clear code of ethics. In season two of Mr Inbetween, Ray’s work and personal life begin to collide and he finds himself struggling to keep both sides of his life from imploding.
The series was recently shot in Sydney and is produced by FX in association with Blue-Tongue Films, Jungle Entertainment and Pariah Productions. Edgerton, Ryan and Jason Burrows are Executive Producers and Michele Bennett is producer.
Express from the US, Fridays at 2pm from September 13 repeated 8pm and Sundays at 8.30pm on FOX Showcase.
