When season 2 of The Fall, the BBC show starring Jamie Dornan and Gillian Anderson, ended with Dornan’s character being shot, there was speculation surrounding whether the story could continue if the show were given a third season. However, as creator/writer/producer/director Allan Cubitt told EW in February, he was very particular about the dialogue he wrote in one of Spector (Dornan) and Gibson’s (Anderson) final scenes together in season 2.
When Gibson interrogated Spector, the serial killer told the detective that their story was far from over. “I was very careful [to include] the line where he says, ‘It’s not over between us. In fact, it’s only just begun.’ [That] was me making sure that the audience understood that there was more to be got out of the battle between Spector and Gibson,” Cubitt said.
And speaking specifically about a season 3, which BBC has now officially announced, Cubitt claimed that he will “continue the story of Spector and Gibson,” despite Spector’s bullet wound (or recent arrest). As he put it, “I think there’s an awful lot more to get out of it.”
