The Australian Black comedy-crime drama entertainment television show ‘Mr. Inbetween’ is known to premiere its third season in early 2021. The show is directed and written by Scott Ryan. It is the story behind the character of Ray Shoesmith from the 2005 film ‘The Magician’ starring Scott Ryan in the lead role. The first two seasons of Mr. Inbetween attracted the audience towards its comedy-crime storyline.
SCOTT RYAN AS RAY SHOESMITH
The show centers on the life of a hitman Ray (played by Scott Ryan), who tries to settle with a normal life and decides to leave behind his past. He tries to make a life with a balance between his criminal activities and the relationships with the people around him.
Ray has a daughter, Brittany (played by Chika Yasumura), with his ex-wife Jacinta (Natalie Tran). Throughout the show, he tries to be a good and loving father to Brittany and takes good care of her. Ray is a loving boyfriend for Ally (played by Brook Satchwell). Their relationship appears to be a severe one in which both of them are there for each other.
Aside from his daughter and Ally, Ray is also a good caretaker for his older brother Bruce (played by Nicholas Cassim), who suffers from motor neuron disease. He covers for his friend Gary (played by Justin Rosniak) whenever he asks of him. He obeys and follows his boss’ orders, Freddy (played by Damon Herriman), without question.
STRUGGLE BETWEEN CRIMINAL AND PERSONAL LIFE
As seen clearly, Ray has many people in his life whom he cares about. His relationships are affected by his criminal work, but he manages to level it by doing great deeds for his loved ones. Ray is a hitman who kills for money and would do any crime to earn money. When he tries to involve himself more in Brittany’s life, he deals with new challenges from giving out speeches and attending shows that get him to see the world’s softer side.
Ally plays an important role in Ray’s life by managing his relationships with the people around him. Both the actors, Scott and Brook, have done a great job making the life of Ray Shoesmith realistic to the audience.
Season one of Mr. Inbetween focused more on the introduction and the way of living in Ray’s life. It consisted of 6 episodes to give the show a headstart. The second season that was released in September 2019 brought us the second phase of Ray in which he was caught up in a serious case involving local gangs. It consisted of 11 episodes to give out a brief description of Ray.
NO RELEASE DATE REVEALED FOR SEASON 3
Season three of Mr. Inbetween was announced on May 26th, 2020. Due to the pandemic, the filming of season three was delayed. There are no further dates given by the production team regarding the release.
