HBO Europe casts more Shadows

Umbre stars Serban Pavlu as Relu

HBO Europe has renewed its original Romanian crime drama Umbre (Shadows) for a third season.

Production will begin in Bucharest this autumn, with additional filming on location in Spain. Award-winning filmmaker Bogdan Mirică will once again write and direct the six-episode third run.

The series is based on Small Time Gangster, a format created by Sydney-based Boilermaker Burberry and licensed by DRG Formats. It follows gangster Relu, who juggles family and mob duties as his two lives become increasingly entwined.

The end of season two foretold a point of no return for Relu (Șerban Pavlu), as unpredictable police investigator Emilian (Laurențiu Bănescu) resolved to put crime boss ‘The Captain’ and his associates behind bars for good.

Bucharest-based production company Multi Media Est and producers Dragoş Vîlcu and Valentin Antofi are behind the show. The executive producer for HBO Europe is Steve Matthews, while Alina David is the producer for HBO Romania.

The third season of Umbre will premiere day-and-date across all 17 HBO Europe territories.
