Babylon Berlin Series Three & One to Three Box Set

Sex, drugs, and jazz club hedonism, welcome back to the Weimar Republic. The critically acclaimed, multi award winning hit German period drama Babylon Berlin returns for its third series as Inspector Gereon Rath delves deeper into the tangled web of political corruption of inter-war Berlin.

Making waves at home and internationally, having cracked the 100-territory mark in 2019, Babylon Berlin Series Three is set to arrive on DVD and digital courtesy of Acorn Media International on 13 April 2020 after its run on Sky Atlantic, alongside the Babylon Berlin Series One to Three Box Set.

The lavish, 40 million dollar series is Germany's most expensive drama to date, and explores a metropolis in turmoil: poverty stands in stark contrast to the excessive indulgence of the night life in a city on the brink.

Series three begins in the Autumn of 1929, during the tumultuous weeks before Black Friday's stock market crash, and 10 months after the turbulent events of the second series. Inspector Gereon Rath (Volker Bruch) and Charlotte Ritter (Liv Lisa Fries) are assigned to investigate the violent death of a silent film actress. As talkies start conquering the big screen and Berlin becomes a hub of modern cinema, the pair soon realise the film industry is as rotten as the criminal underworld they are all too familiar with.
