The third season of The Fall has begun filming in Belfast. Jamie Dornan and Gillian Anderson return as serial killer Paul Spector and Detective Superintendent Gibson in Allan Cubitt’s five-part psychological thriller.
Also joining the cast is Swedish actor Krister Henriksson, best known for playing the iconic detective Kurt Wallander for almost a decade.
Final series of show
Although Anderson said last year that she believed the show could go into a fourth season in 2017, the BBC and RTÉ have already announced that this will be the final run of the series. Despite struggling to maintain its impact in its second season, the show has been a huge commercial success, and has been sold to 200 countries.
At the end of the last series Spector was critically injured in an ambush and lay bleeding in the arms of detective Stella Gibson. Bringing a killer to book will take much more now than simply catching him...The cast this time also includes Aidan McArdle, Ruth Bradley, Aisling Bea and Richard Coyle, alongside series regulars John Lynch, Valene Kane, Stuart Graham and Bronagh Waugh.
