Sky Atlantic has announced the transmission date for series three of Babylon Berlin, the terrific Berlin-based noir.
Based on the bestselling detective novels of Volker Kutscher and arguably the most lavishly-produced non-English language television production ever, Babylon Berlin returns for its third chapter in the Weimer-era drama. And, as ever, Sky will be broadcasting two episodes a week.
It’s the Great Berlin Stock Market crash of 1929. As small-time shareholders and savers storm the stock exchange and the banks to attempt to empty out their accounts, detective Gereon Rath and his protégé Charlotte investigate the on-set death of German film actress Betty Winter. It soon becomes apparent the tragedy was no accident, and there were many shady parties who had invested interests in the film.
After the smash-hit first series, the hotly anticipated Swedish series Before We Die returns to All4/Walter Presents, starting off on Channel 4 first.
We’ll get to see Hanna, Bjorn and Christian attempt to untangle themselves from life-threatening danger. But this is quicksand, and the more you struggle, the deeper you sink…
With Davor finally out of the way, Hanna and Bjorn now have to keep Christian as safe from the Mimica family as humanly possible. But Hanna has been tasked with a new secret role; to find the rat amongst the police. She can’t resist using her now experienced son to infiltrate a circle of corrupt cops, meaning Christian must create a brand-new identity and become an informant yet again. But after his trauma from the Mimica family, he is not in the right headspace and gets much closer to the Circle than anyone wanted. Yet he is not the only one with a personal connection to this group of dark underground criminals, creating an impossible network of misplaced loyalties…
Before We Die (Series 2): Sunday 15th March, 11pm, Channel 4 (then all episodes on All4)
