Since Sky Atlantic announced that we’d be getting a third season of The Tunnel back in January there’s been little new information. That looks like it’s about to change with the release of the first teaser and we can’t wait to find out more. Eagle-eyed fans may have already spotted the teaser before this week’s Game of Thrones.
Announced as The Tunnel: Vengeance, the third season is expected to be the final instalment of the crime thriller. It again brings together the adored and unlikely Anglo-French duo Karl Roebuck (Stephen Dillane) and Elise Wassermann (Clémence Poésy).
This last outing, penned by lead writer Emilia Di Girolamo (Law & Order: UK), will feature another new and original story set over six parts.
Watch the first teaser for The Tunnel season 3 below:
The Tunnel: Vengeance is set in Europe amidst hysteria around a refugee crisis, the increasing threat and horror of terrorism and with far-right groups growing in power.
Detectives Karl and Elise are faced with a toxic and terrifying duo whose hideous crimes see them take ever more dark and desperate measures to provoke the police into collaborating on their desperate endgame. Against this, is the backdrop of Karl’s fractured family life and a miscarriage of justice from Elise’s past that shakes her to her core.
The Tunnel: Vengeance release date is set for December 14th, 2017. Like with previous seasons, fans around the world are expected to have to wait until 2018 to see the new season.
