‘Jack Taylor’ Season 4 Is Coming To Acorn TV

 
It has been a while since a new season of the crime drama, “Jack Taylor” premiered. The third and to-date latest season initially aired back in 2016. Well, a time table has been set for the release date of Season 4! Jack Taylor is coming back via Acorn TV and within the next 9 months.

The private eye will return for a fourth season sometime this year on the streaming service, Acorn TV. An exact premiere date (month and day) has not been announced yet, as 2019 is the current projection according to the streamer. Season 4 will continue following Iain Glen’s charismatic character as he battles issues both personal and professional.

The season, like its previous, will be comprised of three (3) feature-length episodes. In other words, three movies! Knowing that Jack Taylor will be back and within the definitive time frame of 2019 is phenomenal news. The series underwent some massive changes in Season 3. While missed, the show managed to not only survive but thrive in spite of them.

For those who may have yet to catch up on the series, a little background information. Jack Taylor stars “Game of Thrones” scene-stealer Iain Glen as the gruff yet loveable eponymous detective. An ex-cop, the story follows Jack as he works in the private sector of Galway, Ireland.

He investigates a different crime in each episode. Jack has been aided in those investigations by two different and equally loveable sidekicks, one in the first two seasons and a new one in Season 3. All the while sharing a complicated relationship with Officer Kate Noonan, his former colleague in the police force (Gardai) who tends to help him out.

Of note are some casting changes that take place with that role. Nora-Jane Noone plays Kate in the first two seasons. Siobhán O’Kelly took over the part in Season 3.

As stated above, episodes of “Jack Taylor” are feature-film length, so they are more like TV movies than a traditional episodic drama that runs from 45 minutes to an hour. As of now, there is the equivalent of nine movies streaming. The series is an adaptation of Ken Bruen’s bestselling crime fiction novels.

Iain Glen truly gets a chance to shine front and center as the ornery, complex lead. As he does on “Game of Thrones,” Glen has tremendous chemistry with all of his co-stars and the character of Jack Taylor provides him with multiple layers to play.

The way the mysteries are approached adds to the series’ quality. While in pursuit of solving them, the show never loses sight of its troubled character. They do tend to trend towards the darker side of things, so keep that in mind. This is a much more intense series than Tom Selleck’s also-entertaining “Jesse Stone” series.

As someone who binged the entire series (so far), shortly after Season 3 started streaming, Jack has been sorely missed. To know that he will be back sometime this year is a great comfort. However, nebulous that timeline may be, it is a release date that puts a definitive expectation on things. Cannot wait to have Jack back!

You can currently watch Seasons 1 through 3 of “Jack Taylor” on Acorn TV.
