BBC Two has commissioned a third season of The Fall.
Gillian Anderson and Jamie Dornan will return as Detective Superintendent Stella Gibson and serial killer Paul Spector for five new 60-minute episodes of the psychological thriller.
Season 2 concluded on BBC Two in December, with 3.6 million consolidated viewers tuning in.
Writer and director Allan Cubitt commented: “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 2 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, Controller, BBC Drama, teased: “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?”
Season 3 will see the complex relationship between Gibson and Spector intensify as the investigation into the murders becomes more complex and intricate.
Producer Gub Neal added: “It’s thrilling to be continuing the story between Stella Gibson and Paul Spector. A third season gives Allan Cubitt and Artists Studio a chance to pursue the investigation in a way that few crime dramas ever do and complete a cycle of events which will have held audiences for over three years.”
