Season two concluded last December with a cliff-hanger ending, and now stars Gillian Anderson and Jamie Dornan are set to return and bring the story to a close.

Five new episodes have been commissioned, returning to Belfast as the relationship between Detective Superintendent Stella Gibson (Anderson) and Paul Spector (Dornan) intensifies.

The Fall is created, written and directed by Allan Cubitt, and produced by Fables in association with Artists Studio.

Cubitt said: “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.”

BBC Drama controller Ben Stephenson added: “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?”

The Fall is produced by Gub Neal, and executive produced by Cubitt, Justin Thomson-Glover, Patrick Irwin, Stephen Wright, and Anderson.

Distributed by Endemol Shine International, The Fall has been sold to 200 countries including Netflix in the US, BBC First Australia, Bravo Canada, DirecTV Latin America, Globosat Brazil, RTE Ireland, and Fox International Channels across Asia..
