What does season 3 have in store for us?
An influencer killed live, a single mother found beaten and murdered, a body discovered in the freezer of an old lady, or even a rescued surfer torn to pieces, not by a shark but by a dog… This season 3 of OPJ takes Clarissa and her team into new and unique worlds of Reunion.
Whether in the heart of a distillery and the sugar cane fields, in a borderline student brotherhood, with a brother and a sister impatient to see their grandmother die, or on the lagoon and in the heights of the island.
Each investigation will shake up our police officers who are already shaken by the upheavals of their private lives. While Commander Clarissa Hoarau (Yaelle Trules) is seduced by her daughter’s dance teacher, she does not know that the latter shares the same feelings for her teacher.
Captain Gaspard Watson (Antoine Stip), as for him, sees his story with the medical examiner of the brigade come to an abrupt end. While, on their side, Kelly Kwaté (marielle karabeu), the young procedural of the group, and Lt. Jackson Bellerose (Nathan Dellemme) live a relationship finally appeased. But it was without counting on the return of Kelly’s mother, whom she believed to be dead, and of an ex of Jackson, pregnant.
