Plotlines revealed for series four of The Bridge

Standard

Even though we’re still a few months away from the end of 2017 and the start of 2018, we’re already counting down the days until the fourth and final series of The Bridge appears on our screen. We know bits and pieces about it thanks to a brilliant trailer we showed a few months ago, but know more. A lot, lot more. Beware: the details we’re going to publish after the jump contain a good amount of detail. Continue reading

The first series four trailer for The Bridge hits internet

Standard

Despite the sheer weight of new crime drama this year, there’s only one series we’ve got our eyes on. (Actually, that’s not entirely true, we have our eyes on series six of Spiral, a couple of things on Netflix, the Williams brothers’ Rellik, and The Deuce on HBO/Sky Atlantic). But for dramatic effect, let’s just assume that we have indeed got our eyes on one particular series – the fourth instalment of The Bridge. Or Bron, or Broen, depending on where you come from. There is excitement in the air because the first proper trailer has been released. Ch-ch-ch-check it out! Continue reading

Borgen actor Mikael Birkkjær joins series four of The Bridge

Standard

The Bridge is currently filming in Sweden and Denmark and it’s very exciting really – we’re starting to get little drips of news filtering through from the set as the show gears up for its New Year’s Day transmission day (in northern Europe and the Nordic regions, at least). The news today is that Danish actor Mikael Birkkjær – who we all know and love from shows like The Killing and Borgen – has joined the cast of series four. Continue reading

SVT names New Year’s Day transmission date for The Bridge IV; no word from UK yet; first photograph revealed

Wouldn’t you just bloody know it? It was my birthday when this news broke and I was out and about doing birthday-like things, so I was away from the computer and missed the news that the much-anticipated fourth – and last – series of The Bridge will indeed transmit in 2018 (my prediction that we’d see it in 2017 was off, but just by one day!) in an event-like slot on an event-like day in its native Sweden.

It’s a busy time of year, for lots of different reasons. Not only are we preparing our end of year lists, but things are gearing up for 2017’s new releases. One of the things we’re keeping an eye on is progress with the fourth (and likely final) series of The Bridge. It’s one of our favourite shows and ever since Hans Rosenfeldt announced that there would indeed be a fourth series, the countdown has been on. Now, thanks to our eagle-eyed contributor Charlotte, we know that it has started filming. Continue reading

Hans Rosenfeldt: Season four of The Bridge will switch to Denmark for the main story

I did promise two Hans Rosenfeldt-related stories today, except this one took longer to produce because today turned into a busy old day. Earlier there was a story that detailed Rosenfeldt confirming a second series of ITV’s Marcella (read that here), and during the past few days the Swedish showrunner has also been speaking about series four of The Bridge, mere days after broadcaster STV had confirmed a fourth run. What he said makes for interesting reading. Continue reading
