We take another trip to the Australian outback to discover where it all began in Mystery Road: Origin the highly-anticipated and thrilling prequel to the internationally renowned series - which sees Mark Coles Smith (Picnic at Hanging Rock) star as a young Jay Swan.

Following its run on BBC 4, now the brilliant Mystery Road: Origin and Mystery Road Series 1 - 2 & Origin Box Set are set to arrive on DVD and digital on 30th January 2023, courtesy of Acorn Media International.

Providing a rich and riveting origin story to one of 'Australia's all-time greatest screen sleuths' (The Guardian), Mystery Road: Origin begins in 1999, as a recently qualified detective Jay Swan arrives in a dusty outback town for his first assignment. Fresh from the city and tipped for big things, Jay might be this town's new copper, but he's not new to this town... His estranged father lives here, as does the woman destined to change his life forever, Mary (Tuuli Narkle - All My Friends Are Racist).

Immediately thrown into the town's seedy underbelly, Jay's investigations quickly pile up. He encounters a tragic death, an epic love, and must face the brutal reality of being a police officer straddling two worlds... Salme Geransar (Clickbait, Neighbours), Steve Bisley (Mad Max), Hayley McElhinney (Upright), Toby Leonard Moore (Daredevil, John Wick) and Daniel Henshall (Okja) also star.

In Series One we meet an older Detective Jay Swan - played by the inimitable Aaron Pedersen (Jack Irish), a hard-headed Indigenous detective who means business. When two farmhands go missing from a cattle station, Detective is sent to investigate. Working with tough local cop Emma James (Judy Davis - Ratched), he soon finds himself unpeeling the hidden layers of the town's dark history that will send shockwaves through the community...

In Series Two, Jay teams up with local officer Fran Davis (Jada Alberts - Wentworth) to solve the case of a decapitated body found in the mangroves, but it soon becomes clear he must expose the web of corruption plaguing the town...

Crackling with tension, packed full of intriguing characters, bubbling with political undertones and rife with adventure, Mystery Road: Origin and the Mystery Road Series 1 - 2 & Origin Box Set are perfect for anyone looking for stories with real bite.

With striking scenery and electric performances, prepare for a journey to remember down Mystery Road.
