If you too have been mesmerized by The Fall on Netflix, you may be wondering when it's finally returning with new episodes. Jamie Dornan is every bit as attractive here as he is in Fifty Shades of Grey, though he's playing a fully psychotic serial killer. The good news is that season three is on the way! Thank goodness — the last episodes left us with a cliffhanger that found Spector's (Dornan) life in danger, with Gibson (Gillian Anderson) frantically trying to save him. Here's what we know!
It's the Final Season
The upcoming season (or "series," as they call them across the pond) will consist of five episodes, and they will close out the entire story.
The New Cast Members
In addition to Dornan and Anderson, the upcoming episodes will feature new cast members Krister Henriksson (Wallander), Aidan McArdle (Mr Selfridge), Richard Coyle (Covert Affairs), Ruth Bradley (Humans), and Aisling Bea (Trollied).
This is the best look we have at season three so far, and it spoils the fact that Spector very likely survives his gunshot wounds from the season two finale. (Did you honestly expect him to die?)
Jamie Dornan's Comments
Dornan himself tantalized fans during a recent press conference, saying, "There's quite remarkable turns in the third season that I really genuinely think people won't see coming that are hugely exciting."
There's Finally a US Release Date
The Fall's third season is premiering in the UK on BBC Two on Sept. 29, but it won't be on Netflix until Oct. 29.
