Republic of Doyle - A 'Season 3' DVD Set is Scheduled for Fall
Coming to Canada in November
Posted by David Lambert
Allan Hawco returns as handsome rogue, Jake Doyle, for a hilarious and action-packed third season of CBC's Republic of Doyle. But this is Jake as we've never seen him before. Still working cases and capturing criminals on the streets of St. John's, Jake is earning his stripes as a newly-appointed sergeant - the most colourful member of the Newfoundland Royal Constabulary. Assigned to protect a mob informant turned federal witness, Jake finds himself in over his head. Will the dismantled Doyle & Doyle Investigations come together to help save one of their own?
Mal (Sean McGinley) and Rose (Lynda Boyd) must decide if retirement can wait. Do they want to return to the dangerous business of private investigation or would they rather be relaxing on a beach somewhere? Apprentice Des Courtney (Mark O'Brien) has begun to carve out a new identity for himself as a university student. With his Women's Studies degree as his focus, he's left the P.I. racket behind. For now. Tinny (Marthe Bernard) has left St. John's in order to pursue her studies overseas. Did she really leave the Doyles behind for good?
With the future of Doyle & Doyle Investigations still in limbo, time will tell if Jake Doyle remains a cop or if the rules and restrictions of the RNC force him back on the P.I. beat.
The third season features some fresh faces joining the Doyle universe and further complicating Jake's life, including older sister, Kathleen Doyle (Krista Bridges) and Des's new girlfriend, Chandra O'Neill (Mishael Morgan). Returning to the Republic are fan favourites: Rose's shady ex-husband, Martin Poole (Nicholas Campbell), eccentric millionaire Carl Maher (Shawn Doyle), arrogant author, Garrison Steele (Victor Garber), and archnemesis, Maurice Becker (Gordon Pinsent). Adding to the fun are incredible new guest stars: Russell Crowe, Kevin Durand, Scott Grimes, and Shannon Tweed - among others.
