Striking Out, an Irish legal drama series was produced by Blinder films for RTE Television. Striking Out Season 3 is in the works after two successful seasons. This series was shot in Dublin and ranked #1 on RTE Sunday nights for more than a year. It would be insane not to bring it back for the delight of fans around the globe.
Plot of Striking Out Season 3: A Sneak Peek
The Story So Far…
The series is an Irish origin story. However, it was brought to America by its incredible popularity. Its debut on Acorn TV was March 2017. The legal drama features six episodes each in seasons 1 and 2. Tara Rafferty is the protagonist. She discovers that Eric Dunbar, her fiancé, has been cheating on her and a coworker. When we learn that Eric and Tara both work at the same law office, tensions rise. Tara quickly resigns to form her own law practice, where she handles domestic cases.
Tara faces obstacles from powerful people later in Striking Out. Her professional struggles become intertwined with her personal struggles. Will Tara manage to resolve both?
Striking out Season 3 – Expected Storyline
Season 2 ended with a strange cliffhanger. It is likely that Season 3 of the Acorn TV drama series will resume where it left off, if it hits OTT platforms. Striking Out Season 3 may focus on the trio of Tara, Barry, and the mysterious Coraline. The show, which was hosted by James Phelan, has been criticized for being too small. The makers are expected to shoot a larger season. One can’t get enough drama, right?
The Original Cast will Return for Season 3.
Let’s not forget the outstanding performances of the original cast. We hope that they will return to the series for a third season. The following actors were in key roles on Seasons 1 and 2.
- Tara Rafferty as Amy Huberman
- Rory Keenan is Eric Dunbar
- Neil Morrissey is Vincent Pike
- Fiona O’Shaughnessy plays Meg Reilly
- Emmet Byrne as Ray Lamont
- Maria Doyle Kennedy plays George Cusack
- Sam Dunbar as Moe Dunford
Even though the cast was tightly knit, we would love to see more people in new roles.
Release Date for Striking Out Season 3
Striking Out is a perfect blend of drama and manipulative political politics. It has captured the attention even of those who aren’t particularly interested in law. After the success of its two previous seasons, Blinder Films has yet to announce a third season. James Phelan, the creator, is not surprised. Initial expectations were that Season 3 would be released in 2020. It was a false rumour. The series is currently on hold. But, hey! There has not been any cancellation news. If you’re still not satisfied, you can always look into similar series such as Cold Justice and Black Snails.
Strong Female Protagonists Striking Season 3
Striking Out’s most striking feature is Amy Huberman, Tara Rafferty’s badass female protagonist. The actress had hoped for a season 3 earlier this year and ‘crossed her hands’. RTE announced that there will not be a third season, disappointing Huberman and all fans around the world. RTE claimed that there won’t be a season 3. It’s a great coincidence! Huberman spoke to the media about the need for strong female voices. Finding Joy seems to be that show. Amy is excited about this new show. Cathal Watters, who was previously a part of the Netflix series Peaky Blinders, will be the DOP.
The new season of Striking Out may or not make it to the floors. You can still explore other series with great female voices.
