Today, viewers in Great Britain are going to have an opportunity to witness the beginning of “The Fall” season 2, but unfortunately, there is still a little bit of a wait until Americans are going to celebrate the same exact thing.
Today, Netflix announced that they will begin streaming the BBC Two drama, which features Jamie Dornan as a serial killer and Gillian Anderson as the woman tracking him in Belfast, starting on January 16 at 12:01 a.m., just for all of you who want to binge-watch six episodes of a supernatural thriller prior to going to work for the day.
This critically-acclaimed series is one of Dornan’s premier credits along with “Once Upon a Time,” and is really one of the greatest pieces of evidence that “Fifty Shades of Grey” fans should look towards when it comes to why he is going to be a great person for the Christian Grey role. It’s intense, intriguing, and features a wide variety of performances. We’re just glad that American audiences are not going to be forced into waiting for an incredibly long time before having to check it out.
We’ll close this article with a minor programming note, and it is that we are going to continue covering “The Fall” through its airings on BBC Two. We understand the appeal of Netflix as an idea place for fans of shows to watch them, but it is not so conducive to television writing. We will always prefer the one-a-week format, since it cultivates much better discussion.
