‘The Fall’ season 3 official; Jamie Dornan, Gillian Anderson will return

The FallFor fans of BBC Two’s “The Fall,” this is most likely the best news that they could hear all day. After a little bit of a wait, the network confirmed on Tuesday that there will be a third season of the crime drama, which airs on Netflix in America. This is a series that, in all honesty, we were not sure would be returning for another go-around on the air. The biggest reason for that first and foremost was just that both Gillian Anderson and Jamie Dornan are very busy people right now. She has “Hannibal” and rumors about a revival of “The X-Files.” Meanwhile, he has the “Fifty Shades of Grey” franchise turning him into more of a household name.

Luckily, everyone managed to work this out, and all parties will be returning. For Dornan in particular the story could have continued without him, given the state that we saw his character of Paul in at the end of season 2.

In a statement, executive producer Allan Cubitt (who writes all of the installments personally) had the following to say about getting the show back:

“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.”
