If you haven’t seen the previous three seasons of “Babylon Berlin” yet, this is your time to do so before Netflix releases the fourth season. And here’s what you’re missing if you’re still on the fence: German-language drama “Babylon Berlin” is based on Volker Kutscher’s “Babylon Berlin” series of novels and is both a criminal show and a period piece. Berlin is the setting of the Weimar Republic, a democracy that arose after World War I but ultimately fell apart in 1933. There are several themes raised by “Babylon Berlin” that are relevant to both World Wars and post-war times.
There are two primary protagonists in the film “Babylon Berlin”. Second is Gereon Rath, a Berlin police detective and World War I veteran who still suffers from PTSD and sorrow over the death of his brother (spoiler: his brother’s not actually dead). It also features the series’ first female cop, Charlotte Ritter, who started out as a bureaucratic aide in Berlin’s police department before making the promotion to officer. Gereon and Charlotte’s investigations have brought them from Berlin’s cabaret scene to the dark underbelly of the early film business, to the collapse of the financial sector and the emergence of violent nationalist political organisations that will climax in World War II.
Netflix released the first two seasons in January 2018 and the third in January 2020. There will be a fourth season of “Babylon Berlin,” and it is expected to appear within the next few months. Here’s what we know thus far about “Babylon Berlin” season two.
What is the release date for Babylon Berlin season 4?
Season 4 of “Babylon Berlin” has not yet been confirmed for release in 2022 by either Netflix or the show’s production company, Filmgesichter, however an estimate of when it will be accessible exists. Season 3’s 12 episodes were shot over the course of around six months, from November 2018 to May 2019, according to star Volker Bruch. Sky 1 broadcast the series’ third season on January 24, 2020, a month before Netflix debuted the third season. In total, Season 3 was in production for around 14 months before it premiered on Sky.

Season 4’s production has already begun, which is good news for fans. Filmgesichter put out a call for 2,000 extras in January of 2021 for the forthcoming season. Season 4 filming will begin “in the spring,” according to the casting request. According to The Hollywood Reporter, filming was still going on as of May 4.
If season 4 follows the same schedule as season 3, it will premiere in the summer of 2022 at the earliest.
Who’s in the cast of Babylon Berlin season 4?
Only one new cast member has been announced for the fourth season of “Babylon Berlin.” According to Deadline, Mark Ivanir will be joining the show as a regular cast member. “Homeland,” “Transparent,” and “The New Pope” are just a few of the shows and movies in which the Ukrainian-Israeli actor has appeared, as well as “The Terminal” and “Get Smart.” Since Ivanir is the sole major newcomer to the cast, we’re comfortable speculating that he’ll be the new big evil for Season 4—see the storyline section below for more.
Gereon and Charlotte, played by Volker Bruch and Liv Lisa Fries, will almost certainly make a comeback. Otherwise, it’s safe to assume that many of the show’s regular cast members will be returning. Gereon’s long-lost brother Anno made a triumphant return in Season 3, after being presumed dead during World War I. Gereon and Anno’s wife Helga Rath, who began a relationship after the war, had to deal with the consequences of this. Anno and Helga, played by Hannah Herzsprung and Jens Harzer, are very certainly returning.
It’s also likely that Miel Matievi will reprise his role as the Armenian, the nightclub owner who oversees Berlin’s criminal underworld, in Season 4. Walter Weintraub, the Armenian’s partner, will very certainly be played once again by Ronald Zehrfeld.
What will Babylon Berlin season 4 be about?
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 with 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 storey 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 favour 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 storey. 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.
