Crime drama Love/Hate is out and about in Dublin shooting scenes for the fourth season

By Genna Patterson

Addictive Irish TV show, Love/Hate has returned to the Dublin streets to shoot the fourth season, The Irish Film and Television Network (IFTN) has reported. The show won a number of IFTAs this year for their third season and RTE has commissioned a fourth season with six new episodes.

The IFTN report says that director David Caffrey, writer Stuart Carolan and series producers Suzanne McAuley and Steve Matthews have returned to lead the show into its latest series.

The well-known cast are also back including the power-hungry Nidge, (Tom Vaughan-Lawlor), gangster Tommy (Killian Scott), Nidge’s wife Trish (Aoibhinn McGinnity), Fran (Peter Coonan), Elmo (Laurence Kinlan) and Tommy’s missus Siobhan (Charlie Murphy).

Darren (Robert Sheehan) was (Spoiler Alert!) shot in cold blood at the end of the last season so will not be returning to the show. Who will they get to walk around topless in every scene now?

The production team is keeping the shooting locations quiet as fans of the show would be eager to get a glimpse of their favourite underworld criminals. The gritty show won an incredible six IFTAs this year for Best Drama, Best Script, Best Director, Best Actor for Tom Vaughan-Lawlor, Best Actress for Charlie Murphy and Best Supporting Actress for Susan Loughnane.

James Flynn, producer of Love/Hate confirmed that a deal with US agents has been agreed so it is possible that the show will be remade in the US soon too. Flynn told the Irish Independent: “What’s happened is that a US sales agent has optioned it and we are now pitching it to the US broadcasters.”

The show received an average of about 900,000 viewers per episode in Ireland last season, so we’re pretty sure a lot of you are looking forward to its return.
