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

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

Yes, we love The Bridge and we love news about The Bridge, ever since creator Hans Rosenfeldt announced that a fourth series WOULD be happening. In fact, Rosenfeldt, despite no confirmation from Swedish broadcaster SVT, has been blabbing all kinds of potential information to the press, especially when he was doing press for his ITV series, Marcella. So today, while also promoting Marcella again (this time for its DVD release), Rosenfeldt was at it again. Continue reading

Hans Rosenfeldt reveals ‘Halloween’ plot for season four of The Bridge; confirms Sofia Helin

tumblr_nxryb2ZYzc1s67arho1_1280Stop everything. Word reaches us via our friends at Scanoir.co.uk (who, in turn, quote The Local), that Hans Rosenfeldt has been speaking about series four of The Bridge on a podcast in Sweden. Rosenfeldt not only chatted away about the plot of that forthcoming series in nice detail but also confirmed that the key cast members had signed on for the fourth, and last, run. Continue reading

Last month we carried a story that quoted Hans Rosenfeldt, saying that a fourth series of The Bridge would indeed be forthcoming (see that story here). For such a big show within the crime drama community, it was a curiously under-the-radar moment, and even though we carried the story there was no confirmation from the show’s native broadcasters, SVT and DR. Now Rosenfeldt is at it again – not only saying there will be a fourth series, but that series will be the last in Saga’s, well, saga. Continue reading

It seems that you can’t keep The Bridge out of the headlines for long. A few weeks ago, Kim Bodnia shocked fans in an interview with Israeli TV when he admitted that one of the reasons he left the show was because of the rising anti-Semitism in Malmö (see that story here). In that same interview he said that he would be open to a return if there ever was a fourth series (see that story here), which led to the question: will there be a fourth series of The Bridge? Showrunner Hans Rosenfeldt has now given us a definitive answer. Continue reading
