Filming has officially begun in Belfast for the third and final season of The Fall, which is expected to air later this year.

Jamie Dornan is confirmed to return for the five part series as serial killer Paul Spector in the BBC 2 drama, who was last seen lying gravely injured in the arms of DSI Stella Gibson, portrayed by Gillian Anderson.

Swedish actor Krister Henriksson, known for his role as Kurt Wallander in the Swedish version of the show, will be joining the cast, alongside Mr Selfridge star Aidan McArdle, Aisling Bea and Ruth Bradley (Humans).

Merlin actor Colin Morgan will return as DS Tom Anderson, alongside previous series regulars John Lynch, Valene Kane, Emmett J Scanlan, Stuart Graham, Bronagh Waugh and Aisling Franciosi.

Series creator and writer Allan Cubitt said of the final series: "I’ve been on a very exciting journey over the last five years with Stella Gibson and Paul Spector – the central characters of The Fall – and I’m thrilled to have recently started filming the third instalment of their macabre, obsessive dance of death."

The Fall first aired in May 2013 and was nominated for both Bafta and National Television Awards, with the second series airing in 2014 and concluding on 17 December.
