Hello, fellow Miss Fisher fans!
So much has happened since our last newsletter - it’s been a pretty newsworthy month! We’ve learned that Miss Fisher’s MODern Murder Mysteries will begin airing on Australia’s Channel 7 on February 21. In case you haven’t seen them, check out the clips of the series that are being shown on the show’s official Instagram - it’s looking really good!
And there's been some fantastic news for US fans: Multiple sources have confirmed that Acorn TV has picked up both the new series (starting in spring 2019) and Miss Fisher and the Crypt of Tears for its streaming service (sadly, no other countries have been confirmed as yet, but we’ll keep you posted). The news also says that the movie will have a limited theater release in the US - not sure about you, but I’m already considering road trip options if it comes to that.
Oh! And in case you missed it, another Kickstarter reward has been shipped out - the signed cast photo. Twitter user @dumblydore posted a picture of her copy, and it’s glorious!
Tickets for this interactive event will be available on our website starting March 1 for con attendees (not yet registered? There’s still time!); transportation from the hotel to the museum for the event is included. We hope that all of our con attendees will join us!
Sessions at the 2019 Miss Fisher Con
Session submissions are in for Miss Fisher Con 2019, and it’s going to be a wonderful line-up! This year’s topics are wide-ranging - we’ll have a session on common poisons in the early 20th century, a brief history of the Hispano Suiza from someone who owns one, and a presentation on what the expectations and compensation would have been for domestic staff, just to name a few. Honestly, I can’t wait to see them all! We’re working on the schedule and will update the website with it as soon as possible.

We hope you’ll join us at con - it’s going to be a great one!
PS In case you missed it, we’ve posted photos from Miss Fisher Con 2018 on our website - it was a great time, and this year is shaping up to be even better!
