The German Neo-noir television series Babylon Berlin will be back with the fourth season. Season 4 was confirmed by the makers themselves following the third season’s release. The series had its third season from 24 January 2020. Just like the first two seasons, the third season came out through Sky 1.
Babylon Berlin is based on the Gereon Rath novel series. These series of novels were written by the German author Volker Kutscher. Gereon Rath had its first novel Der Nasse Fisch in 2007 and continues to this day. The series went on to be a huge success and turned out to be extremely popular, receiving many accolades.
Babylon Berlin had a heavy responsibility on their shoulders to keep up the reputation of the novels. And, they did that to the best of their ability. The first two seasons came out from 13 October 2017 in Germany through Sky 1. Babylon Berlin opened up to outstanding reviews by the critics and a similar reception from the viewers.
Netflix acquired the streaming rights for the series, and this resulted in a global fan following. The two seasons ended on 1 December 2017. Owing to the response to the first two seasons, season 3 premiered on 24 January 2020. Season 3 had 12 episodes.
Critics lauded the series for its making, cinematography, and cast performances. It has a 95% rating from Rotten Tomatoes and 8.5 from IMDB. They also appreciated the historical accuracy of the series in acutely portraying the politics in the Weimar Republic. Many stated that these political occurrences in the 1920s paved the way for Nazis. The series, as well as its cast, won many accolades.
Fans began questions about the fourth season even before completing the third season. And the team officially confirmed a renewal in February 2020. But, they refrained from giving out an exact release date.
Based on the recent reports, the cast for the fourth installment is already set. The usual cast consisting of Volker Bruch, Lars Eidinger, Liv Lisa, Peter Kurth will be joined by Jones Harzer, Jordis Triebel, Thomas Thieme, and Benno Furmann expectedly will be there.
And the filming would have been begun in June only if the COVID 19 crisis wouldn’t have occurred. But based on the usual pattern, we can expect the fourth season to be out by the end of 2020.
Maybe it may cross over to 2021 January. The makers will be adamant about continuing the excellent run. So, they will give their due attention and focus on the new season. But when the series is finally here, we can be sure that it won’t disappoint us and will keep on the legacy of the book and itself.
