The Fall season three: Trailer for Jamie Dornan and Gillian Anderson drama released

A trailer for season three of BBC drama The Fall, starring Northern Ireland actor Jamie Dornan, has been released.

The show's third and apparently final series, also starring X-Files FBI agent Gillian Anderson as tough-talking detective Stella Gibson, will be returning this autumn.

But Fifty Shades star Jamie is keen to keep the show filmed in his native Northern Ireland going.

He told AP: "You know, that job changed my life. They're like family to me and I'm forever grateful for it to be a part of my life."

The 34-year-old Holywood born actor a recently discussed his exit from social media during a round of interviews for two of his upcoming films, Anthropoid and The 9th Life of Louis Drax

The Fall could last five seasons  

"To delete my Instagram - I had to email my publicist to get the password. Twitter I used to have a bit of fun with back in the day but I think I've tweeted twice in the last year."

On the reality of living life out loud on social media, he said: "The more public interest in you, the more horrible people become. People start to say disgusting things about your family, about your children. What's the point?"

Dornan was tight-lipped about season three of hit BBC series The Fall, which is set in Belfast and has him playing Paul Spector, a bereavement counsellor, married man and unassuming father of two by day and stalker and killer of women by night.

But he said: "You can expect the unexpected. There's quite remarkable turns in the third season that I really genuinely think people won't see coming that are hugely exciting."

Dornan added: "I would play that character to my dying days if I had the opportunity." Does that include a fourth season?

 "I don't know anything about that," he smiled.
