Gibson and Spector endgame begins.
Filming has begun in Belfast on the third and final series of BBC Two drama, The Fall.
Gillian Anderson (The X-Files) and Jamie Dornan (Fifty Shades Of Grey) will once again reprise their roles of Detective Superintendent Stella Gibson and serial killer Paul Spector respectively, in Allan Cubitt’s critically acclaimed, five-part psychological thriller.
Joining the series 3 cast will be Krister Henriksson (Wallander), Aidan McArdle (Mr Selfridge), Ruth Bradley (Humans), Aisling Bea (Trollied) and Richard Coyle (Crossbones).
Also reprising their roles will be John Lynch, Valene Kane, Stuart Graham, Bronagh Waugh, Aisling Franciosi and Colin Morgan.
Series 3 will pick up from the series two finale, with Spector, critically injured and bleeding in the arms of Detective Superintendent Stella Gibson. Moments before, the intense and single-minded investigator thought she had her man; now, shocked and desperate, she’s losing him.
Bringing a killer to book is going to take much more now than simply catching him. In the emotionally charged aftermath of the shooting, Gibson’s personal journey to exact justice for the victims’ families must begin with the blood-soaked fight to keep Spector alive.
As The Fall reaches its inexorable conclusion, it’s clear that the rules of this deadly game of cat and mouse are set to shift once again.
Allan Cubitt says: “I’ve been on a very exciting journey over the last five years with Stella Gibson and Paul Spector – the central characters of The Fall – and I’m thrilled to have recently started filming the third instalment of their macabre, obsessive dance of death. Gillian and Jamie have lived and breathed those characters during that time and I’ve been incredibly well-served as both writer and director by their stellar performances. Obviously I don’t want to give anything away about how the third series will end but I can say that I am looking forward to working with both Gillian and Jamie again in the near future!”
The Fall is created, written and directed by Allan Cubitt, and produced by Fables in association with Artists Studio.
