Plot Synopsis

Set in Victorian London, YEAR OF THE RABBIT is a half-hour comedy series that follows Detective Inspector Rabbit, a hardened booze-hound who's seen it all, and his hapless, new, by-the-books partner Strauss. While they're investigating a local murder, the lewd but insightful adoptive daughter of the chief of police joins them, becoming the country's first female officer. Together, the trio must fight crime while rubbing shoulders with street gangs, crooked politicians, spiritualists, music hall stars and more.

On Wednesday, February 19, 2020 at 10:30pm ET/PT, IFC presented the U.S. premiere of YEAR OF THE RABBIT. One week earlier -- on Tuesday, February 11 -- IFC and Channel 4 renewed YEAR OF THE RABBIT for a second season. Series star Matt Berry commented, "I'm looking forward to Inspector Rabbit returning back to our screens to fight crime in the past. This time he'll deal with all sorts of unearthly forces, including the Royal Family! Victorian London is presently very much where it's at."
IFC aired the Season 1 finale of YEAR OF THE RABBIT on Wednesday, March 25, 2020 at 10:30pm ET/PT. In the season ender, "Framed Rabbit," Rabbit has been framed for murder and Strauss and Mabel refuse to believe he's guilty.
