The Fall creator-writer-director Allan Cubitt has said he is "very confident" that there will be a third season of the hit thriller, "pending an official greenlight from the BBC". 

Deadline reports that at a Netflix-Television Critics' Association panel event in the US, Cubitt said that he has a vision of how the series will end but realises he cannot please all fans of the Gillian Anderson and Jamie Dornan-starring show. 

As for a US TV remake, which had been planned but fell through, Cubitt said: "I'm not sure why you would remake The Fall… I'm very happy with you guys watching what we've created."
