Netflix, in association with Endemol will premiere the six-episode second season of the critically acclaimed drama series and BBC Two's highest rated drama series in ten years, The Fall, exclusively on Netflix in the US and Latin America on January 16, 2015 at 12:01am PT. Season 1 is streaming now on Netflix.
Gillian Anderson (Hannibal, The X-Files) returns as Detective Superintendent Stella Gibson who is on the trail of serial murderer Paul Spector played by Jamie Dornan (Fifty Shades of Grey, Once Upon a Time). Set in Belfast, Northern Ireland The Fall Season 2 is written and directed by Emmy Award winning Allan Cubitt (The Boys Are Back, Murphy's Law, Prime Suspect).
The series is Produced by Emmy Award-winning producer Gub Neal and Julian Stevens and Executive Produced by Allan Cubitt, Justin Thompson-Glover, Patrick Irwin and Gillian Anderson.
The Fall is a Fables Production in association with Artists Studios for the BBC with support from Northern Ireland Screen.
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.
