FX Hands Out Season 2 Renewal for Australian Drama ‘Mr Inbetween’

The series also airs on Australia’s Foxtel cable network

FX has renewed Australian drama “Mr Inbetween” for a second season.

The second season will premiere in 2019, broadcasting day-and-date on FX in the U.S. and Foxtel in Australia.

The half-hour drama was created by and stars Australian actor Scott Ryan and directed by Nash Edgerton. In “Mr Inbetween,” Ryan plays Ray Shoesmith, a father, ex-husband, boyfriend and best friend: tough roles to juggle in the modern age — and even harder when you’re a criminal for hire. Ryan first introduced audiences to the hitman’s story when he wrote, directed and starred in the 2005 indie flick “The Magician.”

“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.'”

Along with Ryan, the cast includes Damon Herriman (“Justified”), Justin Rosniak, Brooke Satchwell, Jackson Tozer, Nicholas Cassim, Chika Yasumura and Matt Nable.
