Fortitude Series 3 films next year
The third and final series of Fortitude is in development with filming due to begin in Q1 of next year.
From writer Simon Donald, the icy drama is set in the fictional Arctic Norwegian town of Fortitude. It comes from Fifty Fathoms, the production company set up by Patrick Spence and Katie Swinden under the umbrella of Endemol Shine.
Fortitude is for Sky Atlantic and Amazon – the first series won several BAFTA and RTS Craft Awards, as well as the Broadcast Award for Best International Sales.
The show films in London and Iceland. Production Intelligence subscribers can log in and follow the drama as we will be reporting again with names and dates as they are locked down.
