Is Vienna Blood based on a true story?

FANS are thrilled that Vienna Blood is returning to BBC Two.

But due to the gritty storyline, some fans have wondered if the show is based on real-life events.

Is Vienna Blood based on a true story?

Hit BBC Two series Vienna Blood is not a true story, and is not based on real events.

Instead the show is based on Frank Tallis's Liebermann book series.

Author Frank is also a clinical psychologist, which helps him write his crime thrillers.

He has authored nine crime novels, including the collection of books known as the Liebermann Papers, for which he has received several awards.

Starring Matthew Beard and Juergen Maurer, Vienna Blood is set in 1900s Vienna – a hot bed of philosophy, science and art, where a clash of cultures and ideas play out in the city’s grand cafes and opera houses.

A brilliant young English doctor, Max Liebermann (Matthew), and Detective Inspector Oskar Rheinhardt (Juergen) investigate a series of unusual and disturbing murders.

Max’s extraordinary skills of perception and psychology and Oskar’s forceful tenacity lead them to solve some of Vienna’s most mysterious and deadly cases.

These new episodes are set in 1907, and the change between the centuries is an interesting time according to Austrian star Juergen.

Speaking to expressandstar.com the actor said: "It was the time for revolution not only in science, like psychology but also in fine arts and music and Vienna was a hotspot for this development."

How many series of Vienna Blood are there?

The new series will take the total up to two seasons.

Season 1 aired back in 2019 and proved to be a big hit for the BBC.

The first series aired three episodes, and received rave reviews.

As there are more books in the author's Liebermann series, you expect more series of the show.

When is Vienna Blood on TV?

Season 2 of this hit series is made up of three episodes, each lasting 90 minutes.

The show kicks off tonight (December 10, 2021) at 9pm on BBC Two.

You can catch up with past episodes on the BBC iPlayer.
