PBS Announces Third and Final Season of British Crime Series "THE TUNNEL" to Premiere on Sunday, July 1, 2018

- "THE TUNNEL: VENGEANCE" Will Be Made Available For Streaming Simultaneously With PBS Broadcast -

ARLINGTON, VA; May 22, 2018 - PBS announced today that the multi-award winning British crime drama THE TUNNEL will return for a third season, titled THE TUNNEL: VENGEANCE. The six-part series will air on PBS beginning Sunday, July 1, 2018, 10:30-11:30 p.m. ET and will stream nationally on PBS station platforms simultaneously (check local listings).

The emotional final season of the critically acclaimed bilingual crime thriller reunites Stephen Dillane ("Game of Thrones") in his International Emmy Award-winning role as Karl Roebuck with Clémence Poésy (Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows: Part II) as Elise Wassermann for the last outing of this beloved and unlikely Anglo-French partnership.

In THE TUNNEL: VENGEANCE, the investigative pair takes on a toxic and terrifying folie à deux whose mutual defining quality is an existential death wish. When the question posed by the couple - what is a life worth? - is directed straight back at Karl, he is forced to confront an utterly impossible choice that will haunt the audience long after the closing credits.

Set amidst mid-Brexit hysteria, THE TUNNEL: VENGEANCE tackles an escalating refugee crisis and examines the increasing threat of terror occasioned by disenfranchised, exiled souls on whom society has turned its back.

Last summer, season 2, THE TUNNEL: SABOTAGE, had 1.1 million streams across PBS digital platforms, making it one of the most-streamed drama limited series on PBS. (Source: Google Analytics). The season reached more than 2.8 million unique viewers on broadcast television. (Source: Nielsen Live+7 8-episode P2+ program reach estimates, 6 min. qualifier.)

THE TUNNEL: VENGEANCE is written by Emilia Di Girolamo, Louise Ironside, Jamie Crichton and John Jackson. Executive producers include Karen Wilson, Manda Levin and Emilia Di Girolamo. The series is produced by Toby Welch and directed by Anders Engström and Gilles Bannier. Music is by Ben Bartlett.The series is based on the original Swedish series "The Bridge," created by Hans Rosenfeldt, Måns Mårlind, Björn Stein and produced by Filmlance, Nimbus Film Productions A/S, Sveriges Television AB, Film | Skåne AB, Film | Väst AB, Norsk Kringrikskastning AS and Dr Medier A/S.

Full episodes of THE TUNNEL: VENGEANCE will stream for free simultaneously with each broadcast and be available for two weeks on all station-branded PBS platforms, including PBS.org and PBS apps for iOS, Android, Roku, Apple TV, Amazon Fire TV and Chromecast.
