As production gets underway for the third season of ‘Das Boot’ Sky have released a number of first-look images and the latest additions to the cast.
The 10-part third season follows the tense struggles of a young U-boat crew as they engage in the Battle of the Atlantic whilst being hunted down by an obsessed Royal Navy Commander in a thrilling game of cat-and-mouse. They are sent on a dangerous mission to the Southern Hemisphere under the command of Robert Ehrenberg (Franz Dinda) who finds redemption and the family bonds he thought he’d lost forever.
Meanwhile, in the climes of neutral Lisbon, where exiles, spies and criminals rub shoulders with allies and enemies alike, Hagen Forster (Tom Wlaschiha) discovers a lethal plot to steal a fortune in plundered wartime gold. This discovery and dark experiences on the Eastern front lead him to question his own actions and moral path and lead him to a shadowy figure caught up in a conspiracy that might change the course of the War – for the better. That man, much changed by his own shattering experiences, is Klaus Hoffmann (Rick Okon).
Tom Wlaschiha (Game of Thrones), Franz Dinda (The Cloud), Rick Okon (Tatort), Pierre Kiwitt (Lobos sucios), Leonard Scheicher (Finsterworld) and Robert Stadlober (Summer Storm) all reprise their roles. The newest recruits to the cast include Ray Stevenson (The Spanish Princess), Ernst Stötzner (Brecht), Luise Wolfram (Mathilde), Elisa Schlott (Strange Daughter), International Emmy Award winner Anna Schudt (The Sniffles Would Have Been Just Fine), Joana Ribeiro (The Man Who Killed Don Quixote), Florian Panzner (Dark), Artjom Gilz (Milk & Honey), Jo Hartley (After Life), Fritzi Haberlandt (Ein spätes Mädchen), Johann von Bülow (13 Minutes), Trystan Pütter (Toni Erdmann) and Franz Hartwig (Pagan Peak).
