Netflix has announced that it will premiere the six-episode second season of BBC Two’s critically-acclaimed drama series “The Fall” exclusively in the US and Latin America on January 16, 2015 at 12:01am PT.

“The Fall” is BBC Two’s highest-rated drama series in ten years (with season one currently streaming on Netflix), and its Belfast, Northern Ireland-set second season promises the return of Detective Superintendent Stella Gibson (Gillian Anderson of “The X-Files”), on the trail of serial killer Paul Spector as played by Jamie Dornan (Fifty Shades of Grey).

Here’s the official synopsis: Following Season 1’s gripping cliff-hanger and despite Gibson and Spector never actually meeting on screen, the chemistry between the two characters was electric and the escalating rivalry became the lynchpin of the first season and left the audience crying out for more. This critically-acclaimed series picks up immediately from where series one left off, with Gibson in pursuit of Spector. A personal link from Spector’s past opens up some clues for Gibson but provokes Spector in a way that threatens to jeopardize the whole investigation. Gibson is forced to take ever greater risks but the closer she comes to capturing him, the more Spector trespasses into her private world, delighting in taunting and provoking her. As the net gradually tightens around him he becomes psychologically ever more dangerous and destructive.

“The Fall” Season 2 is written and directed by Emmy-Award winning Allan Cubitt and produced by Emmy-winning producer Gub Neal and Julian Stevens, along with executive producers Allan Cubitt, Justin Thompson-Glover, Patrick Irwin and Gillian Anderson.

Holywood-born hunk Jamie Dornan has had one eventful year. He’s tied the knot, become a dad for the first time, and finished filming what is tipped to be next year’s movie blockbuster, Fifty Shades of Grey.

And of course, there was The Fall.

“You know, when I first auditioned for it, I was so relieved,” the actor, 32, told Sunday Life.

“The first thing I said to Allan [Cubitt] was, this is so lovely to read something set in this part of the world that doesn’t involve the Troubles directly or sectarianism, or any of those crap things that hold this country back.

“Not that it’s some kind of love story or altogether positive, but it’s just refreshing that it wasn’t about that. And you know, why not set it here?

“There’s no definitive need for it to be set in Belfast, but it’s a great backdrop, and it’s been said so many times — Belfast is like a character in the show. And I totally agree with that.

“Am I proud? Yeah, I’m definitely proud.”

And so he should be.

Not only is the award-winning Belfast-based drama the BBC’s most successful in over two decades — it also catapulted the former underwear model to huge acting fame.

So when it came to taking on the killer role for a second time, it was never in doubt — despite his hectic showbiz schedule.

Speaking to Sunday Life on set of the new series of The Fall, Jamie said: “There’s been a bit of juggling around but my goal has always been to be here.

“I’ve had about a week off in a year, and I think I’ve aged rapidly, but that’s fine!”

Jamie Dornan reveals that, after a couple of very high-profile roles which see him playing dark, dominating troubles characters, he is conscious of being typecast.

Jamie, star of BBC thriller ‘The Fall’ and the forthcoming ‘Fifty Shades of Grey’, tells HuffPostUK:

“It does make you slightly conscious. No actor wants to be typecast, you want to be clever and pick things that show you’re not a one-trick pony, and that’s my plan.”

Jamie is just off a flight from LA – I mean, literally, still wearing ear plugs from the aeroplane – when I sit down with him in London, yet surprisingly fresh, sharp and happy to joke about being typecast as a sexy sociopath.

With his return next week in ‘The Fall’ where he plays family man Paul Spector, who just happens to be a serial killer when night falls, and the forthcoming ‘Fifty Shades of Grey’ film, where he will be the dominating but irresistible Christian Grey, it seems that Jamie has quickly cornered the market in these troubled, tantalising types… is he worried he’ll never get offered anything else?

“I just don’t know how many sexy sociopath roles there are available to be typecast,” he wonders with a brush of the beard, “so I’m not too worried about that.

Prior to the first series of ‘The Fall’, Jamie’s acting CV barely went into double figures. But, with record audiences for BBC2, and Jamie happily holding his own against cool veteran Gillian Anderson, producers came calling, and his profile has now swung into orbit, with ‘Fifty Shades’ many book fans champing at the bit for his appearance on screen with Dakota Johnson.

Despite this, the actor remains committed to ‘The Fall’, whose second series finds Paul Spector having to return from his Scottish hideout to tie up some loose ends, and Gillian’s DI Stella Gibson continuing to hunt him down. Despite his star in the ascendant, it sounds as though he’d be happy for a third outing, should that come calling…

He says, “We’re all immensely proud of the first series, and the scripts are so good for the second. When you’re onto something as good as that, you want to complete it, honour it, see it through to the end, whenever that may be.”

How easy is it to put on the solitary armour of Paul Spector for this jokey, amiable man, I wonder?

“I found it almost worrying easy,” he smiles, with a suitable glint in his eye, before giving all the credit to his co-stars and crew for being “like one big family, that make it easier to slip back in”.

“Oddly enough, considering the content and the severity, it’s a pretty fun set,” he adds. “You work and when the camera’s rolling it’s very serious, but you have to have moments of fun, light relief.

“I think almost specially because of the content. It’s not healthy to stay in that mindset. I can get very silly. I like to have fun and make jokes that aren’t funny to anyone but me.”

‘The Fall’ returns to BBC2 next Thursday 13 November.

Jamie Dornan was left “shaking” when told the plot outline for the new series of The Fall

The 32-year-old hunk , who plays murderer Paul Spector in the BBC Two crime drama, says the second series will be even more exhilarating than the first as police detective Stella Gibson (Gillian Anderson) is hot on his heels.

He said: “When I got the breakdown for the second series, I was shaking.

“The scale of it has grown, there are twists and turns and there are moments which I can’t say too much about.”

Dornan – who will hit cinema screens in February 2015 as Christian Grey in the movie adaptation of the best-selling erotic novel ifty Shades of Grey – also revealed his serial killer character’s plans may start to crumble in the new series, creating an interesting relationship between Spector and Gibson.

He told ShortList magazine: “Cracks start to appear and Stella gets a bit of a foot in. That’s what makes it great television, and it’s probably explored slightly more in the second series. It’s what I love the most about him.”

The former model added that he thinks people are drawn to the character because they also see his vulnerable side.

He said: “Obviously what he’s doing is horrific – pure evil – but we get to see a human, relatable side to him at work and with his family which makes it more chilling to watch.

“You are literally thinking that it could be your next door neighbour. And I’ve had people say, ‘He’s a sick b*****d, but I kind of wanted him to get away with it.’ “

Below is a teaser trailer for the second trailer of “Fifty Shades of Grey.” The trailer be released on Thursday, November 13 during ABC’s Scandal! Who’s excited?

Gillian Anderson and Jamie Dornan are sitting side by side in a restaurant booth in south London. Both have been enjoying high-profile moments in their careers in the past few months, Anderson playing Blanche Dubois in an acclaimed production of A Streetcar Named Desire at the Young Vic and Dornan at the centre of the hype surrounding the film adaptation of Fifty Shades of Grey, in which he will star as sadomasochistic businessman Christian Grey.

Back in 2013, though, in the Belfast-set BBC Two murder drama The Fall, the pair were hunter and hunted, lead detective and serial killer, locked in a struggle of converging obsessions – his with having absolute power over young, dark-haired, professional women, and hers with stopping him from killing again. Here in real life, with the second series soon to begin on BBC Two (a chilling trailer was released in July), they’re finishing each other’s sentences and answering questions for one another with an easy rapport.

I ask Anderson what it is about her character, the Met’s DSI Stella Gibson – seconded to Belfast – that would make a fellow officer in the show say to her: “You have no idea what effect you have on men.”
“I’m not sure I’ve ever asked myself that question,” she says, laughing.
“Go up in that corner and ask yourself, then come back and tell us…” says the 32-year-old Dornan, who plays family man and murderer Paul Spector, “ ’cause I wanna know.”

She thinks for a moment, “Um… I remember thinking that was a shocking thing for me to hear, as Stella. I think she wouldn’t be interested in men finding her attractive; she’s only interested in the ones she finds attractive enough to find her attractive enough to satisfy her fleeting needs. I don’t think that she gives a s—.”

Her fleeting needs. Gibson’s sex life was just one aspect of The Fall that got people talking. In the opening episode, Gibson pressed her hotel room number on a hunky cop she had just met, for a night of sex, then admonished him afterwards for failing to keep his emotions in check. Later, she was informed that he had been killed by a gunman in front of his marital home. “Anything else?” she replied.

Just like its resident serial killer Paul Spector, last year’s The Fall crept up on us and wouldn’t let us go.

Indeed, while many detective dramas leave viewers in the dark, The Fall introduced us to the psychopathic Spector from the outset, which meant the audience have always known more than the investigative team, led by Gillian Anderson’s brilliantly aloof DSI Stella Gibson.

And perhaps that’s why the series proved so powerful. We saw the psychopath at work, his manipulation of both family and work colleagues. And despite the nightmares it induced, the drama became BBC Two’s biggest in years.

Now it’s back, picking up 10 days after the last series ended with the revelation that Spector’s last victim had regained consciousness, tracking the psychological impact of the killings on the police team, the victims’ families and on the city of Belfast as a whole.

“People have an appetite for this kind of drama and a morbid fascination with death,” muses Northern Irish actor Jamie Dornan who plays the disturbingly handsome killer.

“And what’s particularly interesting in The Fall is knowing who the killer is from the start,” adds the former Calvin Klein model.

“I think there’s a slightly different tone with the second series, which is going to surprise people,” continues 32-year-old Dornan, who’s soon to be seen in Fifty Shades of Grey.

“We set out a lot of things in the first, where it was more about the act [of killing], and maybe the second series is more about what activates the act and the hunt [for Spector].”

“Definitely the hunt,” agrees Anderson, 46, who recently earned rave reviews for her role in a stage production of A Streetcar Named Desire.

“The team continues with the information they have and are following leads. There are more characters because the team is larger, and there’s an interesting dynamic in having people in different aspects of the investigation working simultaneously.”
