The Fall could be set to return for fourth series, actress Lacy Moore hints

The Jamie Dornan, Gillian Anderson crime thriller The Fall could return for a fourth series - but with new lead characters - one of the show's actresses has said.

The cat and mouse drama saw London detective Stella Gibson (Gillian Anderson) pursue Belfast strangler Paul Spector, played by Holywood actor Jamie Doran, following a spate of murders in the city.

Series three ended in a violent, bloodied and dramatic fashion, sparking outrage.

However, given the ending many have speculated it was the conclusion of the series, but Lacy Moore, who also starred in the hit HBO series, has hinted there will be a fourth.

"It’s funny because there has been so much stuff online about it being the end of The Fall," she told the Irish Daily Mirror.

“All I know is I’m supposed to be back in series four - I have no idea why people are saying it’s the end.

“I think they’re bringing in new characters to play the leads but I’m pretty sure they’re going forward with another season.

“It’s got such a massive fanbase, it really is super popular, so it should go on for another series.”

The Fall writer Alan Cubitt has already hinted the show will make a return.

Ahead of the show's conclusion he told Digital Spy: "I don't think I'm giving much away in saying it's Jamie's last season, but that's not to say that we wouldn't do more of The Fall.

"I do have some thoughts, but I'm quite keen on doing other things as well, so it's not going to be straight away."
