The Fall to return to for third season

'The Fall' is to return for a third series.

The BBC has announced that they've commissioned a new five-part series of the physiological thriller starring Gillian Anderson and Jamie Dornan, which will reveal the fate of serial killer Paul Spector, played by Dornan, after he was left lying shot in the arms of Stella Gibson (Anderson) at the end of series two.

Series writer and director Alan Cubitt said: "The cliffhanger ending of season two was conceived in the hope of further exploring the characters and the themes that are at the heart of The Fall."

Ben Stephenson, BBC controller of drama commissioning, added: "The story is far from over. Allan has known the end game from the beginning - the cat and mouse game between Gillian and Jamie has one last act to play out. Who will win?"

The new season of the BBC Two show is likely to bring the drama to a close when it airs next year.

Since the series first aired in 2013, Jamie, 32, has shot to fame starring as Christian Grey in the movie adaptation of E.L James' novel 'Fifty Shades of Grey',

Around 3.6 million people tuned in to watch 'The Fall' season two finale last December.
