Netflix has announced that it will premiere the six-episode second season of BBC Twos critically-acclaimed drama series “The Fall” exclusively in the US and Latin America on January 16, 2015 at 12:01am PT.
“The Fall” is BBC Two’s highest-rated drama series in ten years (with season one currently streaming on Netflix), and its Belfast, Northern Ireland-set second season promises the return of Detective Superintendent Stella Gibson (Gillian Anderson of “The X-Files”), on the trail of serial killer Paul Spector as played by Jamie Dornan (Fifty Shades of Grey).
Here’s the official synopsis: Following Season 1’s gripping cliff-hanger and despite Gibson and Spector never actually meeting on screen, the chemistry between the two characters was electric and the escalating rivalry became the lynchpin of the first season and left the audience crying out for more. This critically-acclaimed series picks up immediately from where series one left off, with Gibson in pursuit of Spector. A personal link from Spector’s past opens up some clues for Gibson but provokes Spector in a way that threatens to jeopardize the whole investigation. Gibson is forced to take ever greater risks but the closer she comes to capturing him, the more Spector trespasses into her private world, delighting in taunting and provoking her. As the net gradually tightens around him he becomes psychologically ever more dangerous and destructive.
“The Fall” Season 2 is written and directed by Emmy-Award winning Allan Cubitt and produced by Emmy-winning producer Gub Neal and Julian Stevens, along with executive producers Allan Cubitt, Justin Thompson-Glover, Patrick Irwin and Gillian Anderson.
