Das Boot

Series: Season 3 in Postproduktion | Sky
Season 3

Season 3 follows the fortunes of a young U-boat crew as they engage in the Battle of the Atlantic, are hunted down by an obsessed Royal Navy Commander and are sent on a dangerous mission to the Southern Hemisphere. Together they form strong personal alliances under the command of Robert Ehrenberg (Franz Dinda) who himself finds the redemption and the family bonds he thought he’d lost forever.

Meanwhile in the exotic climes of neutral Lisbon where the exiles, spies and criminals of Europe rub shoulders with each other and their enemies, Hagen Forster (Tom Wlaschiha) discovers a lethal plot to steal a fortune in plundered war time gold. These discoveries and aspects of his own history deriving from dark experiences on the Eastern front lead him to question his own actions and moral path. They also lead him to a shadowy figure caught up in a conspiracy that might change the course of the War - for the better. That man, much changed by his own shattering experiences is Klaus Hoffmann (Rick Okon). These two historically based strands come together in an unexpected, thrilling finale.

Season 2

December 1942. Very experienced U-boat ace Johannes von Reinhartz (Clemens Schick) is sent with U-822 on a secret mission to the US East Coast in order to disembark three saboteurs. His loyalty is questioned and U-612, with its CO Wrangel (Stefan Konarske), is sent in pursuit.

Former U-612 CO Hoffmann (Rick Okon) escaped certain death in the Atlantic Ocean. In New York he finds shelter with Sam Greenwood (Vincent Kartheiser), who owes his life to Hoffmann, and meets the sleazy German-born lawyer Berger (Thomas Kretschmann). Will he enable him to return to Germany?

Back in La Rochelle, Simone (Vicky Krieps) is still helping the weak and oppressed, and Forster (Tom Wlaschiha), Head of the Gestapo, suspects as much, as Simone and her roommate Margot (Fleur Geffrier) battle to secure an escape route for a Jewish family.

Season 1

The story of the new high end series "Das Boot" begins in the fall of 1942, at a time when, in the midst of World War II, submarine warfare was becoming ever more brutal. The plot follows a young submarine Crew on a dangerous surveillance mission, as the Résistance begins to gain influence at the French port of La Rochelle.

During the Autumn of 1942, in occupied France, U-612 is now ready for its maiden voyage, preparing to head into the increasingly brutal warfare with its young crewmen, including the new commander, Klaus Hoffmann. As the 40 young men take on their first mission, they struggle with the cramped and claustrophobic conditions of life underwater. Their personalities are pushed to the limit as tensions rise and loyalties begin to shatter. Meanwhile, at the port of La Rochelle, the world of Simone Strasser spirals out of control as she is engulfed in a dangerous liaison and forbidden love, torn between her loyalty for Germany and the Resistance, and causing her to question everything. Could all she believed to be true, in fact be a lie?

A story of choices and survival, Das Boot explores the emotional torment of life during World War Two, and the brutal reality of living within a senseless war. Buchheim's statement that blind fanaticism drives young men into a hopeless war has unfortunately not lost any relevance in today’s world.
