A perfect mix of family drama and high-power influence, Striking Out ran for two good seasons from 2017 to 2018. The fans were expecting a third season but to everyone’s disappointment, it never went to the production floor. Or did it? Let’s find out if we can expect another season of Striking Out.
A Peek Into The Storyline
The Irish legal drama had four and six episodes in the first and the second season, respectively. Both the seasons were filled with emotions and turn nearly at every point.
The first season kicks off with Tara Rafferty finding out that her fiance, Eric Dunbar, is cheating on her with his colleague. One fine evening, she goes to meet Eric. After she opens the door to his room, she finds him in a compromising position. In the emotion of shock, she runs away from him and exits the premises.
Eric goes after her to apologize and explain the situation but his attempt goes in vain. Since Eric and Tara were in the same law firm, Tara decides to resign and start her law firm to support clients facing marital and domestic issues.
As the series progresses, she faces difficult challenges from people with high influence. Her cases also interfere with her personal life, something that she must resolve to win her clients’ cases.
The second season continues to put Tara under pressure while solving her cases.
Both the seasons had four main actors in their cast list. The lead role of Tara Rafferty was portrayed by Amy Huberman. Tara Rafferty is a lawyer who specializes in legal cases related to marriage and family. She is supported by her two friends Vincent Pike and Meg Reilly.
Vincent Pike was portrayed by Neil Morrissey. Vincent acts as a mentor for Tara at every step of her life and case. Meg Reilly is a tech geek who also works as a private investigator. She was portrayed by Fiona O’Shaughnessy.
Eric Dunbar was played by Rory Keenan. He works as a lawyer in the same firm as Tara. Both cancel their engagement after Eric’s affair with his colleague comes to the notice of Tara.

The second season concluded with a cliffhanger, giving every fan hope that there would be a third season. However, James Phelan, the creator of the series, has not come out to make an announcement either.
