It is THE perennial hit on German television: The “Tatort”. The first case “Taxi to Leipzig” was broadcast on November 29, 1970. Since then, hundreds more “crime scene” episodes have appeared. Currently, 22 teams in Germany, Austria and Switzerland are investigating. In our news blog we keep you up to date with all the latest news about the “crime scene”.
The latest news in our blog:
“Tatort” competition on Sunday
The “crime scene” will get a lot of competition next Sunday (November 27th). The Germany vs. Spain game and ProSieben with a football match from the NFL run against the repeat of the Münster “crime scene” “Explain Chimera”.
Whether the “crime scene” can prevail there?
Jan Josef Liefers: “Like a child’s birthday party”
Even after so many years together, they can still be happy. The last Münster “Tatort – A Friend, a Good Friend” watched several million viewers. It goes without saying that the leading actors Jan Josef Liefers and Axel Prahl did not leave it uncommented either. According to Liefers, “joy like at a children’s birthday party” prevailed after the grandiose rate of 40 percent.
Sad news for the “crime scene” fans
The football World Cup in Qatar has started and so everything on ARD is all about the ball again. Much to the displeasure of the “Tatort” fan base, who will have to do without new thrillers on Sunday evenings for the next two weeks.
Although there will be no explicit World Cup break, as ARD announced, the broadcaster will only show repeats on the coming Sundays (November 27, 2022 and December 4, 2022).
So the “Tatort” friends can look forward to the “Explain Chimera” case from Münster next Sunday. And also goodbye to Nadezhda Krusenstern, who has just been promoted to detective in the 2015 film.
On December 4th we stay in the year 2015. Then the ARD shows the case “Freddy tanzt” from Cologne. Ballauf and Schenk investigate the case of a young musician who was killed.
