France 2 launches this Friday evening unpublished episodes of “The Art of Crime” which will, as always, see the arrival of many guests of choice.
The new season of The Art of Crime arrives this Friday, May 7 from 9:05 pm on France 2. After a year and a half of waiting, viewers will finally be able to find Antoine Verlay (Nicolas Gob), intuitive and obstinate cop, and Florence Chassagne (Éléonore Bernheim), renowned art historian, who can no longer do without one another … to solve the investigations.
After two seasons consisting of 6 episodes of 52 minutes, the series had changed format for its third season, moving to two 90-minute TV films, a format kept for season 4.
Broadcast in October 2019, the two episodes making up this season 3 had also worked well, attracting an average of more than 3.5 million viewers (or about 17% of the public). Adding in the replay, the average of the two episodes was 4.11 million.
Season 4 of The Art of Crime also received the Audience Award for Best Series at the Luchon Festival of Television Creations 2021. On the occasion of the broadcast of the two unpublished episodes, a quick look back at what awaits you.
Stéphane Bern as featured presenter
In “The Testament of Van Gogh”, episode broadcast this Friday evening, Antoine and Florence must elucidate the murder of a historian, consultant on a TV show devoted to Van Gogh and presented by Julien Quignard. The case seems to be linked to a more than disturbing theory: Van Gogh would not have committed suicide, but he would have been murdered.
For the occasion, the duo will give the answer to the expert in royalty, Stéphane Bern, who will play a compositional role here, since he will be a presenter of a program on History.
This is not the first time that he has tried comedy: the host was on the bill in Meurtres en Lorraine broadcast in 2019 on France 3. Cécile Rebboah, whom we saw previously in The Red Bracelets and Do not do this, do not do that, will also be present in this first episode.
Behind the scenes of the Moulin Rouge
Episode 2 of this season 4, which will be offered on France 2 on Friday, May 14, will transport the viewer to a totally different setting since the action will take place behind the scenes of the Moulin Rouge where a murder has been committed.
Everything accuses Estelle Domani, one of the cabaret dancers who, stricken with amnesia, cannot defend herself. Her devouring fascination for the painter Toulouse-Lautrec works against her.
In the role of Toulouse Lautrec, the production of L’Art du Crime called on Bruno Solo, a true enthusiast of the famous French painter, who did not hesitate for a second to put himself in the shoes of his idol.
Sara Mortensen, former actress of Plus Belle la Vie, is going to play this dancer in love with the character played by the actor from Camera Café. A double news for the young woman that you can find on the same channel on May 21 for the new season 2 of Astrid and Raphaëlle alongside Lola Dewaere.
Find the first episode of season 4 of The Art of Crime this Friday May 7 from 9:05 pm on France 2. The second episode will be broadcast on Friday May 14 at the same time.
