Crossing Lines creator/executive producer Ed Bernero departed after the end of Season 2 to be close to his family in California.

Mitchell and Visnjic will play Carine Strand and Marco Corazza, new members of the elite team of officers investigating cross-border crimes. Additional new series regulars include Stuart Martin (Babylon) and Naomi Battrick (Waterloo Road). Sutherland will reprise his role as Michel Dorn. Also returning for Season 3 are Tom Wlaschiha and Lara Rossi.

Season 3 picks up six months after the conclusion of Season 2. After one of his top prosecutors vanishes, Dorn must reactivate the ICC team as the group struggles to re-establish its battered identity. The third season will have a new emphasis on relevant and contemporary cross-border crime.

Wendy Battles will co-executive produce. Star Wars‘ Rick McCallum is producing for Film United in Prague. Season 3 is produced in association with Sony Pictures Television Networks and Germany’s SAT.1.
