- What happened in last in season 3 of ‘The Fall’?
British-Irish crime investigation thriller left us on a gripping note with its season 3 finale. Since then, the devoted fans of the series are campaigning for the renewal of ‘The Fall’ Season 4. At this stage, even a mere glimpse of the trailer of ‘The Fall’ Season 4 is enough to get them going.
About the series: When “Why-did-it” was the question of BBC Two ‘The Fall’
The series is a cat and mouse, cop-killer tale circling serial killer Paul Spector (Jamie Dornan of 50 shades of Grey fame) and Metropolitan Police Superintendent Stella Gibson (Gillian Anderson). Stella is sent to Belgrade on a mission to investigate the long-pending case of murder.
The search by her local detectives’ team very soon leads to Paul Spector. But the series, unlike other cop thrillers, is not about “Who-did-it”. The bigger question that carries the narrative forward is “Why-did-it”. With every passing episode, Stella unravels the “why” behind a supremely- rich-handsome man’s inexplicable brutal behaviour.
This brilliant concept for the plot, in addition to the stellar performance by ‘The Fall’ cast has made the show relatively popular. ‘The Fall’ IMDb rating is also quite decent with an 8.2/10 through the three seasons.
When happened last in season 3 of ‘The Fall’
The final season was released in 2016 on Netflix and BBC two. After episodes of thrill, the season finale saw Paul strangling himself to death, marking the end of Operation Musicman.
Stella Gibson returns unharmed to London and closing the investigation file forever.
After the end of season 3, fans were dismayed when they heard rumours that ‘The Fall’ Season 4 has been cancelled. However, fans are excited about a possible revival of the show with season 4.
When will BBC ‘The Fall’ Season 4 premiere?
The death of Paul means the case is closed and so the series has ended for now. But in case of a revival, we hope that the rest of ‘The Fall’ cast is able to revive their roles in the show. There is still hope that Gillian Anderson will be back for ‘The Fall’ Season 4. After all, Stella escaped unharmed! But we will not see Jamie Dorman in the next instalment (huge upset for ladies). The creator of the series, Allan Cubitt has indicated that there is more to come in ‘The Fall’s’ next outing which might not be sooner, but later.
Cubitt spoke to Digital Spy about Jamie Dornan’s unfortunate departure and also teased on the possibility of ‘The Fall’ Season 4 release. He has some ideas on how to continue with Stella Gibson’s story after Paul Spector’s fall. She may get a new nemesis in the next outing with ‘The Fall’ season 4. We can’t wait to take a look at ‘The Fall’ Season 4 trailer.
“I do have some thoughts, but I’m quite keen on doing other things as well, so it’s not going to be straight away”, Cubitt stated.
No official announcement has been made for the renewal of series till now. But the wait won’t be long according to many online reports doing the circles. We are sure that with this amount of fan exciting the IMDb ratings for ‘The Fall’ will sky-rocket if a new season is launched.
‘The Fall’ Season 4 will certainly not be the same without Jamie Dorman and we will have to wait to see who fits in his big bold shoes.
Why was ‘The Fall’ called “the fall”?
The show gets its name from the famous story of the fall of Adam and Eve , as well as that of Satan, as depicted in John Milton’s famous epic poem “Paradise Lost”. Adam and Eve give in to temptation, and as a result experience the fall. It is interesting to know that each episode of the show is names after lines from the poem.
Is ‘The Fall’ a true story?
‘The Fall’ is not based on a true story. However, this is an often asked questions because the crimes of Paul Spector on the show, is based on real life crimes of various serial killers.
Do they catch the killer in ‘The Fall’?
Yes. After his run, spanning through three seasons of the show, the killer Paul Spector finally gets caught, and get interrogated by Stella Gibson and Tom Anderson.
