Series eight of Spiral begins filming, adds cast member

We’re waiting in anticipation for series seven of Spiral to hit our screens in the UK, but news reaches us that series eight has already begun filming.

Star Caroline Proust told Figaro magazine recently, “I want to stop because I want to do something else. I’m tired of being a police officer because I’m confined to this role… a  good series must at a certain time stop.”

This led to speculation that the end was nigh for the popular crime series.

But series eight has begun filming, with Proust – as well as  Audrey Fleurot and  Thierry Godard – confirmed to return for a 10-episode series. There is an official synopsis available, but we’re not going to print it here because we don’t want to give away any spoilers.

The production is to last five months and will once again use Paris as a backdrop.

It’s been confirmed that rapper Kool Shen is to appear in this eighth series.

    It’s ridiculous that Spiral has disappeared from UK screens. Series 8 must be wrapped by now in France and we haven’t even had series 7 here in the UK.

    Is there a problem with rights or something? Doesn’t the BBC still part-fund the series? Hoping BBC4 will have it soon!

    Great storylines, superb script, brilliantly assembled cast of authentic characters, Paris back-drop scenes excellent, some recognisable as I worked in Paris for some 2 years in Suresnes.
