Produced by award-winning production company Endor Productions (Deep State, Anansi Boys), a Red Arrow Studios company, and MR Film in Austria (Maximilian, Das Sacher), the new episodes will again be adapted by acclaimed screenwriter Steve Thompson (Jericho, Sherlock, Deep State, Leonardo), based on the bestselling novels by Frank Tallis.

The producers of Vienna Blood are Jez Swimer for Endor; Oliver Auspitz and Andreas Kamm for MR Film; commissioning editors are Klaus Lintschinger for ORF and Wolfgang Feindt for ZDF; executive producers are Steve Thompson; Hilary Bevan Jones and Carlo Dusi for Endor, and Rodrigo Herrera Ibarguengoytia for Red Arrow Studios International.

Jez Swimer, Producer, Endor Productions, said: “Vienna Blood’s fabulous combination of mystery, crime, the odd couple pairing of Matthew Beard’s psychiatrist Max Liebermann and Juergen Maurer’s Inspector Rheinhardt, and sumptuous 1907 Vienna has captivated viewers around the world. We are excited to deliver to deliver a new series of compelling stories to its growing global fanbase.”

Oliver Auspitz and Andreas Kamm of MR Film added:
“We are delighted that we will soon start shooting our third season of Vienna Blood, thanks to the trust and the support of commissioning broadcasters ORF and ZDF, and all our other funding partners, including Red Arrow Studios International, BBC2 and PBS.
