Mr Inbetween, the new Australian drama series created by and starring Scott Ryan as the criminal-for-hire “Ray Shoesmith”, has been renewed for a second season by FX Networks and Foxtel.
it was announced over night by Eric Schrier and Nick Grad, Presidents of Original Programming for FX Networks and FX Productions, and Brian Walsh, Executive Director – Television, Foxtel.
“It’s been fantastic to see Mr Inbetween embraced by fans and critics. The exciting, offbeat and fast moving first season is defined by the magnetic performance and creative vision of Scott Ryan and director Nash Edgerton,” said Schrier. “Our thanks to Nash and Scott, our partners at Foxtel, fellow executive producer Jason Burrows, producer Michele Bennett, and the great cast and crew. We can’t wait to return to Ray’s world in season two of Mr Inbetween.”
In Mr Inbetween, Ryan plays “Ray Shoesmith”, a father, ex-husband, boyfriend and best friend: tough roles to juggle in the modern age. Even harder when you’re a criminal for hire. The six-episode season, written by Ryan and directed by Nash Edgerton, stars Ryan, Damon Herriman, Justin Rosniak, Brooke Satchwell, Jackson Tozer, Nicholas Cassim, Chika Yasumura and Matt Nable.
