Babylon Berlin: Season 3 (Germany) (Rescheduled from February)
Based on The Silent Death, Book 2 in Volker Kutscher’s “Gereon Rath Mystery” trilogy, the new season of this award-winning crime drama is set in 1929 Berlin and follows police inspector Gereon Rath (Volker Bruch, The Girl in the Spider’s Web, Generation War) and Charlotte Ritter (Liv Lisa Fries, Counterpart, The Wave), his clerk and wannabe-detective sidekick, as they investigate the murder of an actress.
