Vienna Blood, the cerebral crime drama set in glittering 1900s Vienna, returns for a second season with three new two-part mysteries. Written by acclaimed-screenwriter Steve Thompson (Sherlock, Deep State, Jericho), Vienna Blood is based on the best-selling novels by Frank Tallis.
Vienna Blood is set in the early 1900s in the dangerous and dazzling European capital, where radical new ideas about philosophy, psychology and art are espoused in the city’s opulent cafes and opera houses. But beneath the genteel glamour, a dangerous undercurrent of nationalism and anti-Semitism is on the rise—and murder is afoot. Joining forces to solve the crimes are Max Liebermann, a brilliant young doctor and disciple of the controversial psychoanalyst Sigmund Freud, and world-weary Detective Inspector Oskar Rheinhardt. Combining Max’s extraordinary understanding of deviant human behavior and Oskar’s practical crime-solving experience, this odd couple has become a detective duo to be reckoned with, solving Vienna’s most mysterious and baffling cases.
Filmed on location, Vienna Blood stars Matthew Beard as Max. Beard is best known for his performances in The Imitation Game, And When Did You Last See Your Father? and his Tony-nominated Broadway performance in Skylight. He will also be seen on PBS in MASTERPIECE’s upcoming Magpie Murders in 2022. Also starring is Austrian actor Juergen Maurer as Detective Inspector Oskar Rheinhardt. Season 2 is directed by Academy Award® and Emmy® nominee Robert Dornhelm (Anne Frank: The Whole Story).
