The Fall to return for a third series

by | Mar 10, 2015 | All, TV News

BBC Two controller Kim Shillinglaw and BBC Drama Commissioning controller Ben Stephenson have announced that The Fall will return for a third series.

The third run of Alan Cubitt’s popular psychological drama will see Gillian Anderson and Jamie Dornan reprise their roles of D.I. Stella Gibson and serial killer Paul Spector.

The third series will be made up of five one-hour episodes as the complex relationship between Stella and Paul intensifies and the story of the investigation into the murders becomes more complex and intricate.

Speaking of the news Cubitt said, “we’d like to thank the BBC, Kim Shillinglaw, Ben Stephenson and Stephen Wright for showing such confidence in the drama we have created with Artists Studio. The cliffhanger ending of season two was conceived in the hope of further exploring the characters and the themes that are at the heart of The Fall. We’re grateful to be given this opportunity by the BBC.”

Ben Stephenson added, “the story is far from over. Allan has known the end game from the beginning – the cat and mouse game between Gillian and Jamie has one last act to play out. Who will win?”
