Jamie Dornan has hinted that he might not be signing on for another season of The Fall.

The Irish star plays serial killer Paul Spector in the Irish drama, but revealed his future on the show is uncertain.

When asked if he would be coming back for a third season, Jamie said: “I’m not sure I’d be involved in it, for story reasons.”

But while Jamie is dubious about another season, Gillian Anderson said that she thinks “there’ll be a third”.

Jamie (32) did reveal that he was dedicated to playing Paul Spector again, despite a hectic schedule filming Fifty Shades of Grey.

The actor was busy filming

the highly-anticipated film in Canada, but made sure to fly home so he could film the second season.

“There was a bit of a juggle around but my goal was always to make sure I was here. I found myself very eager to become him again,” Jamie said.

The award-winning show returned to RTE last Sunday and will replace the Love/Hate slot at 9.30pm every Sunday going forward.

But the shocking season five finale of Love/Hate resulted in a dent in the drama’s viewership.

While Love/Hate commanded more than 1m viewers, only 385,500 people tuned in to see what would happen to serial killer Paul and Detective Superintendent Stella Gibson.
