Premium TV network EPIX®, an MGM company, announced today it has renewed its original spy drama Berlin Station for a third season. News of the renewal of the CIA-centric series comes on the heels of the second season finale, which aired Sunday, December 3 at 9 P.M. ET/PT on EPIX.
“We couldn’t be more thrilled to announce this news as we close on a spectacular second season of Berlin Station,” said Jocelyn Diaz, Executive Vice President of Original Programming at EPIX. “This past season was timely, significant, and almost eerily prescient in its mirroring of real-life events this year, and we are looking forward to working with the talented teams at Paramount TV and Anonymous Content on another installment.”
“We are so excited to have the opportunity to continue to explore the compelling and timely stories of Berlin Station,” said Amy Powell, President of Paramount TV. “We look forward to continuing our partnership with the teams at EPIX and Anonymous Content to bring a powerful third season to our fans.”
The second season of Berlin Station starred Richard Armitage as Daniel Miller, Richard Jenkins as Steven Frost, Michelle Forbes as Valerie Edwards, Rhys Ifans as Hector DeJean, Leland Orser as Robert Kirsch, Ashley Judd as BB Yates and Keke Palmer as April Lewis, all on a race against time to uncover a conspiracy involving the rise of the Far Right movement sweeping across continental Europe.
The series was created and executive produced by Olen Steinhauer (author: The Tourist, All The Old Knives, The Cairo Affair), with Bradford Winters (Dig, The Americans, Boss, Oz) serving as executive producer and showrunner. Academy Award® winner Eric Roth (Forrest Gump, The Curious Case of Benjamin Button, House of Cards), along with Steve Golin, Kerry Kohansky-Roberts, Keith Redmon and Luke Rivett from Anonymous Content (True Detective, The Knick, Mr. Robot) also executive produced. The series is produced by Paramount Television and Anonymous Content.
Berlin Station is part of a growing slate of scripted originals on EPIX, which also includes season two of the comedy series Graves, from Lionsgate and currently airing Sundays at 10 P.M. ET/PT, as well as the upcoming event series The Truth About the Harry Quebert Affair which stars Patrick Dempsey and season two of the critically-acclaimed comedy Get Shorty, both from MGM Television and slated to premiere in 2018.
