It looks as if April is going to be a very good month for Italian drama fans. With the third season of Thou Shalt Not Kill already available on All4 and the premiere date for The Hunter already announced for 16 April we now have news of a third Italian drama arriving before the end of the month and it’s another one I’ve been looking forward to.
An unorthodox Italian police commissioner finds himself far from his beloved Rome when he is transferred to a mountain station where a murderer is at large in ICE COLD MURDERS: ROCCO SCHIAVONE.
After getting on the wrong side of the wrong people in Rome, Deputy Police Chief Rocco Schiavone is exiled to Aosta, a small, touristy alpine town far from the cobbled streets and fritto misto of his beloved city. Rocco’s talent for solving crimes is matched only by his disdain for the rules and his eye for a beautiful woman. But when a mangled body is found on the ski slopes, he soon discovers that his Roman sophistication – not to mention his expensive Roman shoes – are of little help in this dangerous and unfamiliar mountain landscape. With blood on the black run, rumours of mafia involvement and a murderer at large, Deputy Police Chief Schiavone is about to find himself skating on very thin ice…
Italian actor Antonio Manzini plays the foul-mouthed Rocco Schiavone and is a big star in Italy, having picked up 7 awards and 15 nominations. The fourth season of Rocco Schiavone aired on Rai2 in Italy this month. There have now been 16 episodes of the series in total.
Here’s a trailer for the series:
Season 1 (6 x 120m episodes) will premiere on More4 on Friday, 30 April and air weekly on that channel. The full series will be available on All4 immediately after Episode 1 airs on More4.

Do we know whether/when season 2 of The Hunter will air in UK?
Whether is a yes – for the imminent (in Italy) season 3 as well. When we don’t know yet though.
Rocco Schiavone is played by Marco Giallini not Antonio Manzini.

Thanks. That will teach me to copy/paste info. from a press release without checking. An error carried forward from season 1 too. Though I’m relieved to see when I check that far more illustrious blogs than ours have done the same thing.
