Fans of the crime drama series are all excited as Northern Ireland hunk will reprise her role as Paul Spector. Based on Belfast, "The Fall" tells the story of Stella Gibson (Gillian Anderson), a senior police officer investigating a string of murders and Paul Spector who is behind all the gory murders.
BBC Two Tweet-announced the beginning of production with a photo of the show's clapboard, which indicates the season 2 of "The Fall" was in production. The show's production will have two major parts: half of the production focuses on Stella's investigation while the other half focuses on Paul Spector's life as grieving counselor, father and a husband who likes to murder pretty women.
Now that the mystery element has been eliminated, season 2 will focus on the cat and mouse game. This is the season where Paul tries to stalk and kill his next victim while Stella tries to paste all the puzzles and solve the murder.
According to UK site TV Wise, Alan Cubitt will be replacing season 1 director Jacob Verbruggen. With this new change, fans are hoping that Cubitt can maintain the show's outstanding pace and tone for the upcoming season.
"The Fall" season 1 was hailed as BBC Two's highest rated drama launch in eight years and since May 2013 Cubitt and his writers has been working on the scripts. Former "X-Files" star Gillian Anderson is the show's executive producer and wills star for another season.
When asked about playing a murderer, Dornan revealed that playing Paul Spector is not a walk in the park. "After every one of those scenes, when they'd say, 'Cut!' I was saying, 'Oh my God I'm so sorry," says the new father in an interview with Mirror. I'm going to untie your feet here. Is that OK?'
"Because I am not that guy. I did my best to slip out of it as soon as 'cut' was called.You don't want to be in that head space all the time. Certain actors would but I remember thinking I was in over my head when they cast me," he added.
