The day that Nordic Noir fans have waited for is here: shooting has started for The Bridge.


The creators behind the Danish-Swedish co-production revealed on The Bridge's official Instagram account on Thursday evening that shooting for the fourth season had got under way.

“HERE WE GO,” they announced in caps. “Season 4 has finally started shooting!”

Writers have previously confirmed that the fourth season is also going to be the final season of the Nordic Noir mega hit. Unlike previous seasons, in which the investigation has mainly been based in Malmö, Sweden, this time it will be carried out in Denmark.

As The Local reported earlier this year, the premiere date for the fourth season has not yet been set, but the eight episodes are expected to air in spring 2018 in the Nordic countries.

Sofia Helin and Thure Lindhardt will both return as Swedish and Danish detectives Saga Norén and Henrik Sabroe in the new season, which kicks off around a year-and-a-half after the last episode.

One thing we know for sure is that it is likely to be one of the goriest seasons to date.

“It will be the most nasty start The Bridge has had,” writer Hans Rosenfeldt told the Expressen tabloid back in August. “It's a very unpleasant opening if we have our way.”

In another interview he added: “There's going to be a case to solve and then both lead characters will have a personal journey, and the less I say about that the better, I think. But one small detail is that we're going to find out where Saga got her Porsche from.”
