We address the problem of classifying irreducible Gelfand–Tsetlin modules for $\mathfrak{gl}(m|n)$ and show that it reduces to the classification of Gelfand–Tsetlin modules for the even part. We also give an explicit tableaux construction and the irreducibility criterion for the class of quasi typical and quasi covariant Gelfand–Tsetlin modules which includes all essentially typical and covariant tensor finite dimensional modules. In the quasi typical case new irreducible representations are infinite dimensional $\mathfrak{gl}(m|n)$-modules which are isomorphic to the parabolically induced (Kac) modules.
