“Tatort” fans already know it: In the summer, the popular ARD crime series always takes a summer break for a few weeks.

The crime format “Polizeiruf 110” also uses archive material for this period. How long this break lasts is a question that TV viewers ask themselves every year. There was also speculation about a winter break. The ARD now has the answers.

When does the “crime scene” go on summer break?

As “spot on news” found out when asking the broadcaster, the Sunday thriller “Polizeiruf 110: Black Box” from July 3rd was the last edition before the summer break.

When exactly does the “crime scene” start again?

According to the station’s current planning status, it should continue with new first broadcasts on September 4th. The fact that the summer break is a little shorter than usual is nothing “unusual”. These always vary a little.

How many premieres are planned?

“Das Erste” is planning a total of 36 “Tatort” and seven “Polizeiruf 110” premieres for the 2022 crime season. Resourceful “crime scene” viewers can calculate what else awaits them in autumn and winter.

However, it has not yet been decided which investigative team the viewers can look forward to at the said start date.

Is there a winter break?

Due to the soccer World Cup in winter, the broadcasting schedule is also being postponed. Fans of the format are rightly wondering whether this will also affect the Sunday thriller or whether there is even a risk of another break.
To that end, the broadcaster can calm the fans down. There will be no “Tatort” winter break: “Due to football broadcasts, repetitions are only planned on a few Sundays,” explains an ARD press spokeswoman.
