Standard

We’re all counting down the days until series four of The Bridge hits our screens, but there was one question that was lingering: would the series be broadcast in line with the rest of Europe on 1st January, and, with series six of Spiral waiting in the wings, which one would come first on BBC Four?

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.
