It’s been two years since audiences last saw Gillian Anderson as the driven and obsessive Stella Gibson, the detective superintendent who’s been after serial killer Paul Spector (played by Jamie Dornan) in BBC Two’s drama “The Fall.” A new teaser trailer for the third installment has just been released and shows Gibson being haunted by the murderer who was last shot at the end of Season 2.
“You’re under arrest, you’re going to prison,” we hear Anderson’s voice say as she’s seen swimming, recalling the words that she last spoke to Spector and what he told her.
“I live at a level of intensity unknown to you and others of your type,” we hear him say. “You will never know the almost God-like power that I feel when that last bit of breath leaves a body. That feeling of complete possession.”
Audiences can’t wait to see if Dornan’s villainous character survives, and from what’s been reported, he is confirmed to return for the third and final season.
According to the official series synopsis, bringing Spector to book is going to take much more now than simply holding him in custody. In the emotionally charged aftermath of the shooting, Gibson’s personal journey to exact justice for the victims’ families begins with a blood-soaked fight to keep the killer alive.
“The Fall,” created and written by Allan Cubitt, also co-stars Colin Morgan, John Lynch, Valene Kane, Emmett J. Scanlan, Stuart Graham, Bronagh Waugh and Aisling Franciosi. The psychological thriller first debuted in 2013 with a second season airing shortly after.
There currently is no release date for the third season, but it should arrive this fall on BBC Two.
