All three episodes of Vienna Blood are available to stream and download on the BBC iPlayer now. The detective thriller was adapted for the small screen by Sherlock writer Steve Thompson and is based on the first three novels in the Liebermann series by Frank Tallis. Matthew Beard stars as the main protagonist, Max Liebermann in the show alongside Austrian actor Jürgen Maurer as Detective Oskar Rheinhardt.
Will there be another series of Vienna Blood?
Vienna Blood concluded last night (Monday, December 2) on BBC Two.
The BBC has not yet confirmed whether Vienna Blood will return for a second series. However, this does not mean the crime drama will not return in the future.
A renewal will largely depend on ratings, which the BBC has not published yet.
Also factoring into the show’s future will be the source material available to continue the series and the availability of the cast.

Vienna Blood is based on the Liebermann Papers book series by Frank Tallis, so there is huge potential for the story of Max (played by Matthew Beard) and Oskar (Jürgen Maurer) to continue in a second season.
The Liebermann Papers has six books in total with the TV series adapting the first three novels in the series.
This means that if each season is to be based on three books together, there is room for at least one or two more seasons.
Despite being based on a book series, the show was not released under the title ‘limited series’ like many other crime shows, suggesting season two is not entirely off the table.
If Vienna Blood is given the green light for a second series, the earliest the show is likely to premiere is November 2020.

For now, all three episodes of Vienna Blood are available to stream and download on the BBC iPlayer.

Speaking to the BBC, show writer Steve Thompson shared what drew him to adapt the Frank Tallis books.

He said: “Frank Tallis has written these three fantastic novels that we’ve adapted the show from.
“And Frank is a psychologist and has a great historical knowledge of the science of the period. But more than anything he knows Vienna, and the period detail in the books is just extraordinary.
“And actually I didn’t know Vienna when I first read the book but the way it introduces you to the city and the period and the world is so detailed and so rich, I think that’s what drew me in.
“Frank’s relationship with Vienna just jumps off the page – he says: ‘Welcome to this city, come and enjoy this city, I love it and you will love it too,’ and that I think is very enticing.”
