If you haven’t had a chance to see one of the best shows on television yet, now is your chance to catch up on the first three seasons of “Babylon Berlin” before the fourth season is released. In the meantime, if you’re still on the fence, consider these benefits: Germany-language drama “Babylon Berlin,” based on the series of novels by Volker Kutscher, is a crime show as well as a period piece set in the city of Berlin in the early twentieth century. It takes place in Berlin during the Weimar Republic, a fragile democracy that governed the country following World War I before collapsing in 1933 as a result of the Anschluss. “Babylon Berlin” covers a wide range of subjects pertaining to both World Wars as well as the interwar period.

The story of “Babylon Berlin” revolves around two primary characters. The first is Gereon Rath, a Berlin police investigator and World War I veteran who is still dealing with post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD) and remorse over the death of his brother during the conflict (spoiler alert: his brother isn’t actually deceased). Charlotte Ritter, the second main character, began the series as an administrative assistant at the Berlin police department and has since progressed to become the city’s first female police officer. The investigations of Gereon and Charlotte have taken them all over the world, from the seedy underbelly of Berlin’s cabaret scene to the seedy underbelly of Hollywood’s early film industry, to the collapsing financial sector and the rise of violent nationalist political movements that will culminate in World War II.

The first two seasons of the show were released on Netflix in January 2018, and the third season was released two years later, in January 2020, on the streaming service. The creators of “Babylon Berlin” have already stated that the show will return for a fourth season, which is expected to premiere in the near future. Everything we know about the upcoming installment of “Babylon Berlin” is listed below.

Babylon Berlin Season 4 Released Date By Netflix

Although neither Netflix nor the production company behind “Babylon Berlin,” Filmgesichter, has declared a release date for season 4, we may still make educated guesses about when it will be available. Season 3 consisted of 12 episodes, and according to star Volker Bruch, the production took approximately six months, from November 2018 to May 2019. Season 3 was released in November 2018. A month before Season 3’s Netflix launch, Sky 1 broadcasted an official premiere on Jan. 24, 2020, which was a month before the show’s Sky 1 broadcast. In total, it took around 14 months from the commencement of Season 3’s production to the time of its broadcast premiere on Sky.

Season 4 of The Walking Dead is now in production, which is great news for fans. 2,000 extras were needed for the forthcoming season, according to a casting call put out by Filmgesichter in January 2021. The casting notice also stated that filming for Season 4 would begin “in the spring” according to the schedule. According to The Hollywood Reporter, filming was still taking place as of May 4.

The premiere of Season 4 would most likely take place sometime around the summer of 2022, assuming that the season follows the same schedule as Season 3.

Babylon Berlin Season 4 Cast

As of this writing, only one new cast member for season 4 of “Babylon Berlin” has been announced. According to Deadline, Mark Ivanir will be joining the cast of the show. “Homeland,” “Transparent,” and “The New Pope,” as well as the films “The Terminal” and “Get Smart,” have all featured the Ukrainian-Israeli actor as a guest star. Ivanir’s exact function hasn’t been revealed yet, but given that he’s the sole major addition to the cast at this point, we’re confident in assuming that he’ll be Season 4’s new big bad – see the narrative section below for more information on this theory.

Gereon and Charlotte will almost certainly be reprised by Volker Bruch and Liv Lisa Fries in the upcoming film. Aside from that, several of the show’s recurring cast members will almost certainly be returning as well, according to the source. During Season 3, Gereon’s brother Anno, who had been presumed dead during World War I, made his triumphant comeback. The connection between Gereon and Anno’s wife Helga Rath, who began after the war, is complicated as a result of this. Anno and Helga will almost certainly be reprised by Hannah Herzsprung and Jens Harzer.

Finally, given that Season 4 will take place in Berlin’s criminal underground, it is likely that Miel Matievi will reprise his role as the Armenian, a nightclub owner who is at the center of Berlin’s criminal underworld. Ronald Zehrfeld will very certainly reprise his role as Walter Weintraub, the Armenian’s business colleague.

Babylon Berlin Season 4 Plot

Begin with the Season 3 finale, which was a major cliffhanger.

1929 was the year that the global financial system collapsed, bringing the season to a close. Gereon was severely affected by it, and he relapsed in his sobriety by ingesting a large amount of morphine. Despite the fact that the following season will take place in 1931, it is likely that Gereon will still be battling opioid addiction at the time. Season 4 will also continue to explore Gereon and Charlotte’s personal relationship — after all, it was during season 3 that they finally kissed. Henk Handloegten, one of the show’s co-creators, told “Express” that the fourth season will undoubtedly continue the tale.

Handloegten also revealed to Express that Season 4’s criminal story will be based on Volker Kutscher’s third “Babylon Berlin” novel, “Goldstein,” which is set in the fictional city of Berlin. A fictional American gangster named Abraham Goldstein arrives in Berlin and launches a bid for control of the city’s criminal underworld, prompting Gereon to investigate him as a favor for the Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI).

Although not confirmed by Kutscher, other sources such as the German magazine Qiez have suggested that Season 4 will feature aspects from Kutscher’s fourth “Babylon Berlin” novel, “The Fatherland Files,” as well as other material. Gereon is tasked with investigating a suspicious murder that has ties to the burgeoning Nazi party in that story. Regardless matter whether or not Season 4 adapts “The Fatherland Files,” the Nazi party will undoubtedly become a bigger and bigger problem for Gereon and Charlotte as the season progresses.
