Jack Irish season 4 plot: What to expect?
The basic premise of ‘Jack Irish’ is based on a series of detective novels. It is rather straightforward: it follows the hard-boiled, sad titular protagonist as he solves a variety of cases. Each with its unique set of circumstances and implications.
While this may appear to be just another hard-boiled detective fiction show, what distinguishes ‘Jack Irish’ from its many contemporaries is its ability to strike a delicate balance between savagery, violence, and humour.
Most other shows of this type take themselves and their tragic protagonists very seriously, and as a result, they can be tedious to watch and provide no respite from violence. Because the show has been cancelled, there won’t be a season 4 storyline being illustrated.

Will there be a season 5 of Jack Irish?
