The first season of "Der Pass" aired on Sky five years ago and a lot has happened since then. Even if the thriller series didn't knock all FILMSTARTS employees out of their shoes at the time - the author of these lines was enthusiastic and captivated from minute 1. How good that a second season followed. But it didn't stop there! Today, May 4th, 2023, the third season of "Der Pass" is starting on the pay-TV channel Sky and the associated streaming service WOW and we will once again be looking at the investigator Ellie Stocker (Julia Jentsch) and the commissioner Gedeon Winter (Nicholas Ofczarek) encounter. Not only do the two come from different countries (Germany and Austria), they also don't have much in common. It was the serial killers in seasons 1 and 2 of The Passport that brought the unlikely couple together because they needed to investigate across borders. Unfortunately, the police officers only became friends almost... The dark past of Inspector Winter, which keeps catching up with him, has always overshadowed the relationship between the two, both professionally and privately. Will they get closer again in the third season? Alpine, impressive landscape shots, two very well played police officers, unconventional investigations, unpredictable twists and diabolical perpetrators - these are the most important ingredients of "Der Pass" and these should also make the third season, which again comprises eight episodes, quite exciting . This time, however, one thing is clear from the start: after Season 3 it will be over. Stocker and Winter investigate together for the last time. The second season of "The Passport" ended on a cliffhanger and it's not entirely clear whether Inspector Winter will continue working as a police officer. His colleague Stocker, who is celebrated for her success, is not sure how to proceed. But of course there is no respite, because evil never sleeps... Stocker and Winter are tasked with catching a killer who, apparently without a motive or system, is murdering with brute force and in the name of the devil. But the two don't really make progress. They are much more concerned with themselves and their own – more or less private – problems. Winter is mainly concerned with the past and wants to find out who abused and tormented him in his childhood and Stocker is trying to understand why her colleague Yela Antic had to die and what Winter had to do with it... The first two episodes of the third and final season of "The Passport" will air May 4, 2023 on Sky/WOW. The other episodes will then follow on a weekly basis. Season 1 and 2 can also be found as streams at WOW. *This link to WOW is an affiliate link. By subscribing via this link you are supporting FILMSTARTS. This has no effect on the price.
