Jamie Dornan has reprised his role on BBC hit series The Fall – but tv bosses have confirmed the third series will be the last.
Despite looking close to death in the series two finale, Jamie will be returning to play serial killer Paul Spector in the BBC Two drama, and the new, and final, season is set to be explosive.
Fans of the show last saw the 33-year-old’s character bleeding in the arms of Detective Superintendent Stella Gibson – played by Gillian Anderson – after being shot in an ambush, in scenes aired back in 2014.
The third series will consist of five episodes and will not only see the return of Jamie and Gillian, as show favourites Aisling Franciosi, John Lynch and Bronagh Waugh will be back- as well as a host of new actors, including Love/Hate’s Ruth Bradley and Trollied’s Aisling Bea.
In a statement, the BBC revealed: “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.”
Creator Allan Cubitt, keen to keep details under wraps, added: ‘I’ve been on a very exciting journey over the last five years… and I’m thrilled to have recently started filming the third installment of their macabre, obsessive dance of death.
“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!”
