While Linda Nolan commented: “Amazing, can’t wait to watch.”

The murder mystery follows Dublin lecturer Harriet ‘Harry’ Wild (Jane Seymour) who has recently retired but can’t resist interfering in the police cases of her detective son.

“We knew this series was special from the beginning and could not be more thrilled by the response of Acorn TV viewers to this first season of Harry Wild,” said Matt Graham, General Manager of Acorn TV.

No more information has been revealed about the second season or Samantha’s character for that matter but if it’s anything like the first season we’re sure it’s going to be just as thrilling!
