Following an open-ended season two cliff-hanger, filming has just begun on season three of BBC drama ‘The Fall’ in Belfast. The series received funding from Northern Ireland Screen supported by Invest NI.

Lead actors Gillian Anderson and Jamie Dornan are set to return for their cat and mouse game as Detective Superintendent Stella Gibson and serial killer Paul Spector respectively, while new cast members include Krister Henriksson (‘Wallander’), Aidan McArdle (‘Mr Selfridge’), Ruth Bradley (‘Humans’), Aisling Bea (‘Trollied’) and Richard Coyle (‘Crossbones’). They will join regular cast members Aisling Franciosi, Valene Kane, John Lynch, Bronagh Waugh and Stuart Graham. Key crew members include DoP Dave Grennan as well as composer David Holmes.

Season two of the psychological thriller ended with serial killer Spector bleeding in the arms of Superintendent Gibson after an ambush. Season three will see Gibson attempting to save Spector’s life so that she can bring him to justice for the victim’s families.

Creator/writer/director Allan Cubitt said: “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!"
