The Fall is returning to the US and Latin America.
Netflix has announced that the second season of the Gillian Anderson and Jamie Dornan fronted BBC Two drama will launch in those two territories on Friday January 16th, when all 6 episodes will be made available to subscribers. All five episodes from the first season are also currently available to stream on Netflix in the US and Latin America.
The show’s second season picks up 10 days after the season one finale which saw serial killer Paul Spector (Jamie Dornan) evading the police investigation headed by Detective Superintendent Stella Gibson (Gillian Anderson). A personal link from Spector’s past opens up some clues for Gibson but provokes Spector in ways that threatens to jeopardise 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.
