‘The Fall’ Season 2 Announced

BBC Two has commissioned a second season of their hit suspense series The Fall starring Gillian Anderson (The X-Files) and Jamie Dornan (Once Upon a Time). The still in progress first season has given the network its biggest drama launch in eight years, netting an audience of roughly 3.5 million.

The Fall has proved both a critical and ratings hit for BBC Two and another reminder of the resurgence of drama on the channel,” said BBC Drama Controller Ben Stephenson. “With more of Allan Cubitt’s intricate and thrilling plot revelations yet to unfold through the captivating performances of Gillian and Jamie, a second series is a must. Obviously we can’t give too much away as the first series builds to a gripping cliff-hanger but what we can say is it will be surprising and intense as the first.”

The Fall stars Anderson as Detective Superintendent Stella Gibson who comes to Belfast to catch a dangerous a serial killer (Dornan). Unlike most crime series, The Fall introduced the audience to the killer within the first moments of the series, setting up a cat and mouse game instead of a classic who done it scenario.

Season one airs Mondays on BBC Two. American viewers can catch The Fall exclusively on Netflix beginning today, Tuesday, May 28th.
