Jason Horwitch (House Of Cards) has been tapped as executive producer and showrunner for the upcoming third season of the Epix drama series Berlin Station. He succeeds Brad Winters, who is departing after serving as showrunner on the first two seasons of the spy series, from Paramount TV and Anonymous Content.
With the German capital as its primary backdrop, a Season 3 production start is being penciled in for this year, with a premiere targeting late 2018. It is unclear yet who of the show’s cast is returning. It has included Richard Armitage, Michelle Forbes, Leland Orser, Ashley Judd, Richard Jenkins and Rhys Ifans.
A prestige push by Epix from the get-go, Berlin Station, created by Olen Steinhauer, debuted in 2016. It is the first Epix scripted series to go to three seasons.
Horwitch, creator AMC’s Rubicon and NBC’s Medical Investigation, was a co-executive producer on the most recent season of Netflix’s House of Cards. He also served as a co-executive producer on Netflix’s Luke Cage and was a writer on Southland. Horwitch is repped by WME, manager Dan Halsted and attorney Renee A. Farrell.
