Fans were left on edge as the finale showed Dornan’s Paul Spector lying shot in the arms of detective Stella Gibson (Anderson).

Today, the BBC announced that both stars will return for a new five-part run of the Belfast-based drama.

The station confirmed that the third season would bring the story to a close, it is due to air next year.

Writer and director Allan Cubitt said: “The cliffhanger ending of season two was conceived in the hope of further exploring the characters and the themes that are at the heart of The Fall.”
