Exhibition fights in the boxing clubs of the underworld, sweaty dance marathons in Moka Efti and the catacombs of the Red Castle, the police headquarters where all the strings come together: The fourth season delves into the early 1930s and takes a new look at the powder keg of Berlin.
While Walter Weintraub’s underworld wages a bloody war for control of the city, the future of the Weimar Republic is decided on the streets, in the party headquarters and also in the editorial offices of the fascist press. The SA thugs under their leader Walther Stennes demonstrate their will to power ever more brutally. Stennes’ men also declared war on the SS, protected by government councilor Wendt. Gereon Rath stands between all fronts. As his mission to free the journalist Katelbach expands, Rath finds his life in danger and loses the trust of his most important ally Charlotte Ritter. Alongside her sister Toni, she uncovers the machinations of the “White Hand”, a secret vigilante organization. The unofficial investigation will change both of their lives.
Season 4 is based on Volker Kutscher’s “Goldstein”
The fourth season “Babylon Berlin” is based on Volker Kutscher’s novel “Goldstein”. Twelve new episodes promise a reunion with many well-known characters. Volker Bruch as Gereon Rath and Liv Lisa Fries as Charlotte Ritter return to the screens in the main roles. In addition to them, numerous actors from the first seasons are back in the game, including Benno Fürmann, Lars Eidinger, Hannah Herzsprung and Fritzi Haberlandt. As before, the direction is by Henk Handloegten, Achim von Borries and Tom Tykwer. The new season also has a lot to offer musically. The Hamburg band Meute play the song “Ein Tag wie Gold” by Max Raabe – together with the actress and singer Meret Becker.
