There was unconfined joy among fans of Scandinavian crime drama when BBC4 announced at the Edinburgh TV festival that it would be altering its strategy when it comes to The Bridge. During the past few years, the channel had waited until the New Year to transmit the show, which constituted a six-month gap after its first run in its native Sweden and Denmark. But now, in the midst of much fervour from fans of the show, the channel announced that it would be transmitting the eagerly-awaited third series only weeks after its Scandinavian broadcast. And now the channel has confirmed the actual date…
Yes, this has been bubbling away with fans of Scandinavian crime drama for a few weeks who kind of knew what was happening and when it was happening, but now there’s a bona fide confirmation:
Double bills from Saturday 21st November, 9pm, BBC4.
We also got to see the first episode of the series at a screening in London yesterday, where Sofia Helin and Hans Rosenfeldt were present. Have a read of it here.
