Though we were pretty sure that the BBC show The Fall would get a third series, we didn’t have official confirmation until today. The show, whose second season aired first across the pond and then came exclusively to Netflix, will return.
The third season will feature five episodes.
And both Gillian Anderson and Jamie Dornan are back – meaning we haven’t seen the last of Paul Spector (despite season two’s crazy ending).
“The story is far from over. Allan has known the end game from the beginning — the cat and mouse game between Gillian and Jamie has one last act to play out. Who will win?” said the BBC’s Ben Stephenson.

“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,” said show creator Allan Cubitt.
Expect it on Netflix a few months after airing on the BBC. Get excited.
