Storyline and production info
A new American espionage drama series, Berlin Station was launched by the EPIX network on October 16, 2016. The show is created by Olen Steinhauer, executive produced by Steinhauer, Michael Roskam and Brad Winters, and produced by Third State, Harbor Men Pictures, Vanessa Productions LTD., Anonymous Content and Paramount Television. The freshman season is slated to contain 10 episodes.
Daniel Miller (Richard Armitage) is an intelligence analyst who has just joined the Berlin CIA foreign station as an agent with a secret mission. He has to find out the source of the leak that provided classified information to Thomas Shaw, the notorious whistleblower. Having teamed up with veteran agent Hector DeJean (Rhys Ifans), Miller has to manage his new life as a field agent, a life full of deception and moral compromise.
Recent reviews and renewal potential
The show is mostly well-received by the viewers and critics, and has a 7.1/10 IMDb rating, a score of 70% on Rotten Tomatoes and 65% on Metacritic. Berlin Station is hailed by many viewers as mesmerizing, addictive and tense, although this praise is far from unanimous. Berlin Station`s cinematography, acting and dialogue are mostly positively reviewed, but some critics find the storyline itself very dull. The series has been compared to Homeland, but the series` creators have been adamant on the basic differences between the two shows (besides the apparent budget discrepancy) – mainly, that Homeland is driven solely by Carrie`s character, while Berlin Station is more down-to-earth, in that real-life intelligence work is not as much about superheroes, as it is about networking, thus, an ensemble cast is more appropriate. The show`s fate is far from certain at this point, but you can stay tuned, and we will bring you the latest news on the fate of Berlin Station.
UPDATED November 18, 2016: What a great start – both of Epix` first ever scripted series that were launched this fall have been renewed for second seasons. The production on the ten new episodes of the hourlong spy drama series Berlin Station will commence in early spring of 2017, and the subject matter actually feels very relevant at a time like ours, when international tensions are intensifying. No further details have been revealed, so stay tuned for a release date and more information.
