Series 3 finale
British hit criminal drama The Fall, which has become the critics darling over the course of its three-series run, has wrapped up the broadcast of its most recent 6-episode installment on October 28, 2016. The third series finale was unexpectedly gruesome and downright excruciating, as the Belfast Strangler savagely attacked Stella, proceeded to kill one of the patients at the facility where he was held, and then placed a plastic bag on his head and asphyxiated himself, leaving the viewers gasping for breath. No redemption, no hope, not a trace of anything positive in sight. The traumatic ending could easily become the conclusion for The Fall, but creator Alan Cubitt has mentioned that he does have ideas for the future of the series, yet BBC Two still has to announce its decision on its fate. On October 29, 2016 the show`s third series was released on Netflix in the United States, so many US viewers may be watching the brutal finale as we speak. Stay tuned, and find out whether The Fall is indeed picked up for another series, which is possible with its excellent reception and top-notch ratings of 8.1/10 on IMDb and 100% on Rotten Tomatoes.
