The third season of the crime award winning drama Underbelly is yet to air on television, but that hasn’t stopped producers already beginning planning for a fourth installment of the series.
According to a report in a Queensland publication, the northern sunny state is already being penciled in as the next destination to base the fourth chapter on.
After the first Underbelly was filmed in Melbourne, covering the underworld happenings over the past two decades, it slowly shifted north to Sydney with the second part being filmed in both major cities.
The third series was completely shot in Sydney, with a move even further north expected yet again, next year.
It is believed Fortitude Valley in the 1980s will be the backdrop to the series, although Nine has not confirmed a fourth series will even take to the small screens.
The Fitzgerald Inquiry in 1987 focused on the state’s corrupt police, who had itself emerged through reports in the Courier Mail.
It eventually played a part in the downfall of the Bjelke-Petersen government, which in turn saw a spin off ABC drama, John’s Jury, made in its events.
It also exposed the famous Gerry Bellino, who was accused of running a multimillion-dollar empire of illegal brothels and gambling dens.
He was later jailed for nearly seven years for bribing police.
Former police commissioner Terry Lewis and government MP Don Lane were also jailed following the Inquiry.
Underbelly 3 is set to screen on Channel Nine early in 2010.
