Airs Thursdays, Dec. 13, 2018 - Jan. 17, 2019 at 11 p.m. on KPBS TV

The emotional final season of the critically acclaimed bilingual crime thriller reunites Stephen Dillane (GAME OF THRONES) in his International Emmy Award-winning role as Karl Roebuck with Clémence Poésy (“Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows: Part II”) as Elise Wassermann for the last outing of this beloved and unlikely Anglo-French partnership.

In THE TUNNEL: VENGEANCE, the investigative pair takes on a toxic and terrifying folie à deux whose mutual defining quality is an existential death wish. When the question posed by the couple – what is a life worth? – is directed straight back at Karl, he is forced to confront an utterly impossible choice that will haunt the audience long after the closing credits.

Set amidst mid-Brexit hysteria, Season 3 tackles an escalating refugee crisis and examines the increasing threat of terror occasioned by disenfranchised, exiled souls on whom society has turned its back.
