Last year, Babylon Berlin sashayed onto our screens with quite the fanfare – the German series based on the novels by Volker Kutscher, which told the story of Detective Gereon Rath in a pre-World War II, Weimar Republic-era Berlin. It looked like a million dollars (because it really did cost many millions of dollars) and was a good watch (if a little bit convoluted).
Two series were filmed back-to-back, which aired in the UK on Sky Atlantic last autumn (and Netflix in the US), but now we read that series three has begun production.
Work on the scripts is underway, with filming expected to start in October, a production source said.
The lavish show was initially greenlit for two back-to-back seasons, which were shot concurrently and comprised 16 hours in total. The new outing will be for a single run of eight to 10 episodes. The power trio of German film director Tom Tykwer, Henk Handloegten and Achim von Borries was behind the series and is expected to return for Season 3.
All lead cast members are expected to return.
