Renewed for Season Three
New York, NY – December 6, 2017 – Premium TV network EPIX®, an MGM company, announced today it has renewed its original spy drama Berlin Station for a third season.

“We couldn’t be more thrilled to announce this news as we close on a spectacular second season of Berlin Station,” said Jocelyn Diaz, Executive Vice President of Original Programming at EPIX. “This past season was timely, significant, and almost eerily prescient in its mirroring of real-life events this year, and we are looking forward to working with the talented teams at Paramount TV and Anonymous Content on another installment.”
“We are so excited to have the opportunity to continue to explore the compelling and timely stories of Berlin Station,” said Amy Powell, President of Paramount TV. “We look forward to continuing our partnership with the teams at EPIX and Anonymous Content to bring a powerful third season to our fans.”
