Returning: Total Control

Rachel Griffiths & Deborah Mailman return for final season in January, with Rob Collins, Wayne Blair, Wesley Patten and more.

The third and final season of Total Control, starring Deborah Mailman and Rachel Griffiths is coming to ABC in January.

The six part seires also features Rob Collins, Wayne Blair, Anthony Hayes, Wesley Patten, Steph Tisdell, Daniela Farinacci, Lisa Flanagan, Benedict Hardie, Anita Hegh, Huw Higginson, Catherine McClements, Fayssal Bazzi, Ursula Yovich, Lisa Hensley and Trisha Morton-Thomas.

It’s been two years since the explosive events of the second season and outsider turned kingmaker, Alex Irving (Deborah Mailman), is completely at home in the nation’s capital. But what she’s about to discover will test her like never before. The think tank run by Rachel Anderson’s (Rachel Griffiths) reprobate advisor Nick Pearce – the one that made substantial donations to her election campaign – was backed by private interests in order to buy political influence. Rachel stuffed up. And the corruption allegations could destroy them both.

As Alex and Rachel battle to control their political destinies, they will uncover the truth about who was behind the dark money. And why. Can Alex achieve the change she’s been fighting for or will it cost her everything?

The final instalment of this critically acclaimed political drama is not to be missed.

          1. Hey @David Knox, when ABC drops the full season on iView before many of the episodes have aired, how does that work with the ratings now? The current three sets of ratings do the on-air linear broadcast, then the linear broadcast plus BVOD numbers before 2AM, and then the linear broadcast plus BVOD for 7 days a week later. If I watched three or four episodes of The Newsreader before they ever hit linear broadcast, are they counted in any of these three sets of figures?

          2. @David Knox Thank you, it would be much appreciated 🙂 I’ve been wondering about it for quite a while.
