Jamie Dornan, the star of the controversial movie “Fifty Shades of Grey,” is having a great week. Not only has the trailer for his upcoming movie broke the internet when it debuted recently, but the actor also has something his fans will look forward to as the teaser for “The Fall,” which airs on BBC Two and Netflix, has been released. Read further to learn more about this.
The second season of “The Fall” is gearing up with the release of this latest teaser showing DSI Stella Gibson (Gillian Anderson) lying down on the bed with the photos of all of the victims of serial killer Paul Spector (Jamie Dornan). Paul’s modus usually involves putting his victims to bed, but the teaser shows that Stella is alive. Could it be an indication that the serial killer is going to be after her in Season 2? As Stella has been tracking him down, will the tables turn with Stella becoming the hunted?
The stylized drama, which is created by Allan Cubbit, is set in Northern Ireland. In the first season, consisting of five episodes that aired on BBC Two in the United Kingdom and streamed on Netflix in the United States, the show took its time to reveal two parts: Stella’s investigation of Paul’s killings, and Paul’s hunt for victims, which he managed to keep from everyone including his patients as a bereavement counselor and his wife.
As the serial killer, Dornan was noted and lauded for his performance.
“More of a revelation is Jamie Dornan in that role. He inhabits thoroughly the complexities of a man older than himself, believable in both guises of loving family man and psychopathic loner with a whole load of unsavoury stuff in the loft, in what is sure to become his breakthrough role,” said Huffington Post UK’s critic, Caroline Frost.
“The Fall,” which first aired in May 2013, also received stellar praises from critics. The series ended up becoming BBC Two’s highest rated drama in eight years.
For its return in the second season, whose air date remains unannounced as of press time, Cubbit will replace Jakub Verbruggen as director.
