Fortitude Returns This Year For Third And Final Season

Fortitude returns later this year for a four-part final season, written by Simon Donald (Low Winter Sun) and directed by Kieron Hawkes (Strike).

The third season of Fortitude picks up where the second ended, with the death of Governor Munk hanging over the town. Two new police officers are in town from Oslo, sent to Fortitude to investigate the murder, and soon learn the inhabitants of the most staggeringly beautiful place on earth have a lot to overcome…

The cast will include: Dennis Quaid (Far from Heaven), Richard Dormer (Game of Thrones), Sienna Guillory (Stan Lee’s Lucky Man), Luke Treadaway (A Street Cat Named Bob), Alexandra Moen (Strike Back), Mia Jexen (Happiness) and Bjorn Hlynur Haraldsson (Jar City).

Simon Donald said: “Fortitude has gripped my imagination like an icy blast to the heart. It’s wonderful to be back for a last dance under the blizzard stars in the cold, dark night and find out who lives, who dies and who goes completely, barking arctic crazy…”

Filming will take place at The Bottle Yard Studios in Bristol and on location in Svalbard.
