UK audiences won't be the only ones who get to enjoy the new series starring "X-Files" alum Gillian Anderson.
Netflix has picked up the US rights to Anderson's new crime drama "The Fall," which is currently set to premiere overseas on BBC Two in May. Subscribers to the premium streaming service will not have to wait long after that, as the debut for US, Latin America and Canadian audiences will follow soon thereafter.
The series, created by "Prime Suspect"'s Allan Cubitt, centers on a Police Service of Northern Ireland (PSNI) investigation into a string of murders in Belfast. With the PSNI unable to make much progress on the investigation, Anderson's Detective Superintendent Stella Gibson is sent in from London's Metropolitan Police Service to bring the case to a close. The five part drama follows Gibson's pursuit of the ruthless killer, played by Jamie Dornan ("Once Upon A Time"), who juggles his night life with his days as a beloved family man. The series boasts a large ensemble cast including Archie Panjabi ("The Good Wife"), Gerard McCarthy ("Hollyoaks"), Niamh McGrady ("Upstairs Downstairs"), John Lynch ("The Jury"), Simon Delaney ("Roy"), and Séainín Brennan ("Hidden").
The actress (who has still SERIOUSLY got it) has kept busy in recent months, recurring on the NBC thriller "Hannibal" currently while also set to star in the new still-untitled NBC pilot from "Life" creator Rand Ravich.
