When will Three Pines air on Amazon Prime? We discuss the highly anticipated Prime Video release and when we can expect it to air. 

Three Pines is a mystery streaming television series based on the Chief Inspector Gamache novel series by Louise Penny. The story centers around Chief Inspector Armand Gamache, and his tales, as he investigates a series of murders in Three Pines, a seemingly idyllic village in the Eastern Townships of Canada. Upon investigating, he discovers long-buried secrets and now must face the ghosts of this town. Gamache is well-educated and sees things other investigators don’t. The series stars Alfred Molina, as Gamache, with Rossif Sutherland, Elle-Máijá Tailfeathers, Tantoo Cardinal, Clare Coulter, Sarah Booth, and Anna Tierney also being cast in main roles. 

While this series gives off murder mystery Agatha Christie vibes, Amazon Prime Video warns it is filled with violence, frightening scenes, substance use, alcohol use, smoking, foul language, and sexual content and therefore has a guidance rating of age 16. So be warned, this might be a bit darker and less cheesy than previous murder mystery shows. 

This will be the first season of Three Pines, and while there is no confirmation of a second season yet, there is plenty of source material to draw from. Louise Penny has written 18 Inspector Gamache novels and has no intention of stopping. Her 18th book, A World of Curiosities, was recently released on Nov. 29th, just days before the series premiere. Hopefully, we’ll have a lot more seasons to binge on our screens in the future. 

Where can I watch Three Pines?

Three Pines will launch exclusively on Prime Video in Canada, the U.S., UK, Ireland, Australia, New Zealand, Norway, Sweden, Denmark, Finland, and Greenland. You will be able to watch this on all supported devices. 

Where is Three Pines Filmed?

When researching the series, Three Pines comes from Amazon Studios and is produced by Left Bank Pictures, the Sony Pictures Television-owned production company behind the hit Netflix series The Crown, with Canadian production company Muse Entertainment providing production services. 

Most of the filming has taken place in Canada. Filming took place roughly between August and December of 2021 and was filmed over five-week periods in Montreal and rural Quebec. Specifically in the Eastern Townships, in the region of Quebec, where the novels take place and where the author Penny now resides.

Since 2015, Amazon Studios has filmed roughly 24 Amazon Original series and films in Canada, including The Boys, The Man in the High Castle, the revival sketch comedy The Kids in the Hall, the scripted comedy The Lake, and even parts of Tom Clancy’s Jack Ryan were filmed in Montreal. Hopefully, Prime Video will continue its investments in Canada, which is proving to be a popular place to film. 

Other famous films and series that have been filmed in Canada include Suits, Schitts Creek, Riverdale, Mean Girls, and The Flash. 

How many episodes are in Three Pines?

In total, there are eight one-hour episodes in Three Pines. 

When will Three Pines air on Amazon Prime?

Three Pines has eight episodes, and the first two episodes will air on the 2nd of December 2022 at 12 am ET. And then, two new episodes will be released each week until the season finale on the 23rd of December, 2022. Merry Christmas!

    Excellent series. I’ve read every book and sometimes the tv series aren’t as good. These are great.
