Will there be another season of ‘The Fall’?
Fans will be excited to know that there may well be the fourth season of ‘The Fall’ in the pipeline. The news comes from the horse’s mouth itself aka Allan Cubitt. Exciting! Cubitt said in an interview with “Digital Spy”, just after season 3 aired, that another season was a very real possibility, but that it wouldn’t come straight away. Well, fans have already waited for four years. The straightaway excuse no more applies now.
To everyone’s disappointment, Cubitt also revealed that Jamie Dornan wouldn’t be in the new season. He added in the same interview,
“I don’t think I’m giving much away in saying it’s Jamie’s last season. But that’s not to say that we wouldn’t do more of ‘The Fall’.”
‘The Fall’ Season 3 ending explained
In the final episode of The Fall season 3, the police interview continues, wherein Spector recalls the death of Susan Harper as a sex game gone wrong. Stella, not impressed with his answers, taunts Spector, telling him to grow up and drop the act, apparently touching a nerve.
In a shocking turn of events, Spector unexpectedly and violently attacks Gibson, leaving her severely battered. Burns has a nervous breakdown and Wallace quits Spector’s legal team after witnessing Spector’s outburst. Dr Larson tells Spector that he is treatable, but suggests that he is not curable. Stella visits Katie Benedetto in the juvenile detention facility. We get to know that her situation is bad and she has been self-harming. Stella requests Katie not to ruin her life just to impress Spector.
On the other side of the world, Spector persuades fellow patient Mark Bailey (Conor MacNeill) to create a distraction in the lounge. Spector beats up Dr. Larson and takes his belt, taking advantage of the chaos. He uses the belt to strangle Bailey to death. Later, he hangs himself on the back of the bathroom door with a plastic bag over his head and the belt. We already know that his mother committed suicide in a similar manner in her bedroom door when Spector was eight. With his death, Operation Musicman is disbanded and Burns resigns. And Sarah Gibson, saddened by the events, returns to her home in London.
How many episodes will ‘The Fall’ Season 4 have?
If ‘The Fall’ gets a green signal for season 4, we can expect that it will follow the same 6-episode-set format like its previous seasons.
