The final season of THE BRIDGE will be broadcast on BBC Two

The final season of the hugely popular Nordic Noir crime series The Bridge [+] will air on BBC Two in 2018.

The series, which previously aired on BBC Four, became the highest ever rating drama, and as such has been bumped up to BBC Two.

In the final season, both Sofia Helin [+] and Thure Lindhardt [+] reprise their roles as Saga and Henrik in a case that tests their relationship both professionally and personally. We went into the details of the fourth season, which you can read here.

The release date, however, is yet to be announced. The Bridge season four will premiere on Swedish television on the 1st of January 2018, so here’s hoping it’s soon after that.

Anders Landstrom, the producer of The Bridge, says: “It is obviously very sad to say goodbye to Saga after four incredible seasons, but our talented writers, Hans and Camilla have an extraordinary end in store for viewers. Sofia has played the role of Saga with a rawness and truth rarely seen on screen and it’s been a pleasure to work with her, and Thure on a series of which we are immensely proud.”

Writer Hans Rosenfeldt and Camilla Ahlgren say: “We’ve been on an amazing journey with Saga Norén and Henrik Sabroe and felt that there was one last thrilling story to tell. Set two years on from the last series, Saga is coming to terms with the dire consequences of being accused of her mother’s murder when a macabre crime seemingly linked to migration takes place. Meanwhile, Henrik continues his desperate search for his children.”
