Saga and Henrik will return for the concluding instalment of the smash hit Scandinavian series The Bridge, this time airing on BBC Two.
The final series of the critically acclaimed hit Swedish/Danish language drama will air in 2018. The series – which is BBC Four’s highest ever rating drama – was acquired from ZDF Enterprises and will air next year on BBC Two.
Sofia Helin and Thure Lindhart reprise their roles as the iconic Saga and her innately talented Danish partner, Henrik, in a heart-stopping concluding case that tests their very special relationship to its limits both professionally and personally.
Anders Landstrom, producer of The Bridge, said, ‘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.’
Writers Hans Rosenfeldt and Camilla Ahlgren added, ‘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 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.’
Lars Blomgren, Chairman of Scripted Exchange Endemol Shine Group and co-founder and Managing Director of Filmlance International, commented, ‘I’m incredibly proud of how Bron (The Bridge) has captured the imagination of audiences worldwide. Its very distinctive brand of Scandi Noir has arguably been instrumental in changing attitudes towards foreign language drama around the world.’
