One of 2023's best shows finally has an Irish release date
Even better news, it is arriving VERY soon!
For months, JOE has been eagerly anticipating the Irish release of the mystery series Poker Face.
We have been excited about the show for numerous reasons, including the fact that it stars and is partly written and directed by Natasha Lyonne of Orange is the New Black and Russian Doll fame. On top of this, it was created by filmmaker Rian Johnson, the writer and director of such acclaimed mystery movies Brick, Knives Out and Glass Onion.
Lyonne stars in the series as Charlie Cale, a woman with an extraordinary ability to determine when someone is lying, who finds herself forced to hit the road with her Plymouth Barracuda. However, at every stop on her travels, she "encounters a new cast of characters and strange crimes she cannot help but solve".
At long last, there is a Poker Face Irish release date
Another exciting element of Poker Face is that it boasts a truly unique format in the current TV landscape. As opposed to following a season-long investigation the way modern shows like Mare of Easttown, The Sinner or True Detective did, the new series sees each episode focus on a different mystery, recalling older programmes like Columbo.
This case-of-the-week structure seems to have enabled Johnson to recruit a star-studded cast of guests for the project, with Adrien Brody, Chloë Sevigny, Ellen Barkin, Hong Chau, Jameela Jamil, Joseph Gordon-Levitt, Lil Rel Howery, Nick Nolte, Ron Perlman, Simon Helberg, Stephanie Hsu and Tim Blake Nelson all making appearances in the show.
However, despite receiving a near-perfect 99% critics score on Rotten Tomatoes, wrapping up its first season in the US back in March and already being renewed for a second season, the series' Irish release date had remained its own mystery.
That is until now, however, as Sky has confirmed that all ten episodes of Poker Face will be available from Friday, 26 May exclusively on Sky Max and streaming service NOW. You can check out a teaser for the show right here:
