New York, NY – December 5, 2023 – Today, Acorn TV announced the commission of a fourth season of the Lucy Lawless led, popular crime drama, My Life Is Murder. Season four is currently in production in New Zealand, Acorn TV shares a peek from set.
“It’s been great getting the gang back together again for this new season of My Life is Murder. These episodes have a bit of everything – from homicidal hairdressers to wicked widows, brutal ballet to deadly soufflés, and we are having an absolute ball filming this series once again,” shared Lawless. “I can’t wait for our fans around the world to see the magic that our fabulous cast and crew have been working hard to produce.”
Eight new mysteries. Eight new worlds. Eight diabolical killers that only Alexa Crowe (Lawless) can catch. But this time, Alexa is bringing her friends and family along for the ride: Tech guru Madison (Ebony Vagulans) is stepping up, contributing her considerable technical skills to Alexa’s investigations and the two of them have fallen into a comfortable mentor-mentee relationship. Though neither of them will ever agree on who is the mentor and who is the student. Cafe owner Reuben (Joe Naufahu) is stepping in. Brother Will (Martin Henderson) is staying close. Detective Harry (Rawiri Jobe) has her back and cranky cat, Chowder, can’t help complicating everything.
Emboldened by the changes in her life, ready to revisit demons of the past and excited to embrace her future, this year Alexa is even more of a force, determined to reveal the most carefully hidden secrets that crack the most bewildering cases. And, somehow, she and her fabulous whanau (chosen family) still have a bunch of fun along the way. Let the Auckland adventures begin again…
My Life Is Murder is a Greenstone TV Production for TVNZ and Acorn TV and DCD Rights Ltd., in association with Network 10. The series’ executive producers are Rachel Antony, Claire Tonkin, Lucy Lawless, Harriet Crampton, Nicky Davies Williams and Pilar Perez for DCD Rights and Don Klees for Acorn TV.
