BBC Two has renewed The Fall for a third season of five episodes. Series stars Gillian Anderson and Jamie Dornan will return as Detective Superintendent Stella Gibson and serial killer Paul Spector, respectively.
The Fall’s creator-writer-director, Allan 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.”
BBC executive Kim Shillinglaw seemed to indicate that season three will be the end of the show, saying, “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?”
The previous two seasons have been released on Netflix here in the States. No word on when season three of The Fall will debut.
What do you think? Are you glad that The Fall has been renewed for a third season? Do you think that should be the end?
