Vienna Blood – Season 4

Following the success of Season Three, Vienna Blood, the thrilling period crime drama set in the early 1900s has been recommissioned by ORF (Austria) and ZDF (Germany) for a fourth season special. Available as 2 x 90’ or 4 x 45’, this fourth outing has been acquired by BBC Two and PBS, and this time will feature a single story told over multiple episodes.

It’s Vienna, 1909 and the double murder of an arms dealer in police custody and the Director of Security has shaken Vienna to its core. Doctor Max Liebermann has only just returned from a tour of the US when Inspector Rheinhardt asks for help in what could be the biggest case of their career. Oskar and Max discover a conspiracy that leads to the heart of government. Can the Freudian psychiatrist and the detective do enough to stop a seditious mole known as ‘Mephisto’ bringing the Austro-Hungarian Empire to destruction? And will their lives ever be the same again?

Production completed in Austria in the autumn of 2023, with Matthew Beard (The Imitation Game, Dracula) and Juergen Maurer (Vorstadtweiber, Tatort) reprising their roles as crime-fighting duo Doctor Max Liebermann and Detective Inspector Oskar Rheinhardt.
