Republic of Doyle was created by Allan Hawco, Malcolm MacRury & Perry Chafe and originally followed the exploits of Doyle & Doyle, a private investigation firm headed by Jake Doyle (Allan Hawco) and his father Mal Doyle (Seán McGinley). The show’s 13 episode third season picks up after Doyle & Doyle has been disbanded with Mal going into retirement and Jake having been appointed as a sergeant in the Royal Newfoundland Constabulary. For his first case, Jake Doyle is assigned to protect a mob informant turned federal witness and quickly finds himself in over his head.
The show’s third season features a long list of notable guest stars including Russell Crowe, Kevin Durand, Scott Grimes, and Shannon Tweed. Also appearing in the series this season is Krista Bridges as Kathleen Doyle, Jake’s older sister and Mishael Morgan as Chandra O’Neill, Des’ new girlfriend. In addition, a number of former guest stars will be reprising their roles when the series returns in June. Amongst them is Nicholas Campbell as Martin Poole, Shawn Doyle as Carl Maher, Victor Garber as Garrison Steele and Gordon Pinsent as Maurice Becker.
