The second series of The Fall ended on a huge cliff-hanger, and fans are left wondering whether they’ll ever see another series, but the creator says he’s quite ‘confident’ there will be a series three.

Series two saw the future of serial killer Jamie Dornan’s serial killer character Paul Spector hanging on a thread, so whether he returns or not is a big question.

Creator Allan Cubitt is ‘very confident’ that the show will return, however. He told that he believes the story will continue, but he's waiting for the green light to go ahead with it.

It's an internal situation at the BBC that is causing a delay on the announcement, according to Cubitt, so hopefully, it won't be too long till we get confirmation.

Dornan himself admits that the show could return without him there, speaking last year to the Guardian he said that a third series would be “feasible”, but “I’m not sure I’d be involved”.

Cubitt also shot down ideas that the show would get an American remake like Broadchurch got with Gracepoint. There have been deals in place before which subsequently fell through, but Cubitt thinks American audiences can enjoy the show as it is.

The second series of The Fall attracted 2.5 million viewers last December.

As of yesterday, the first series of the BBC Two crime drama is now available to stream on Amazon Instant Video in the UK. It has yet to be announced whether the recent second series will be available to stream at a later date.
