If you enjoyed Harry Wild when it premiered earlier this year, we've got great news for you. It's going to be returning for another season. In an August 10th announcement, it was mentioned that more than 40% of Acorn TV subscribers had given the series a try – making it the most successful series launch and most-watched season of ANY series on Acorn TV in 2022.
What's Harry Wild About?
Set in Ireland, this 2022 series follows Jane Seymour (The Kominsky Method) as a recently retired English professor with a knack for investigation and a tendency to interfere in her police detective son’s cases. When the series kicks off, she's staying in his home recovering from a mugging and she starts poking around in his work. As the series carries on, she makes new friends and realises she's actually pretty good at meddling in mysteries.
With an amateur sleuth and relatively little on-screen death or violence, this one falls mostly under the “cosy” category, but there's a fair bit of swearing from the main character – so that might be a deal breaker (or selling point) for some.

I'm so thankful to the Acorn TV audience, the press, and my incredible fans for making season one of Harry Wild such a success. “I was thrilled when I heard how well the show performed. I absolutely love playing Harry. I can't wait to get back into production and bring everyone eight more Harry and Fergus-filled episodes!
