Everyone’s favourite European, crime-busting dog, Inspector Rex, is returning to screens in a new series, Rex in Rome.
Made four years after the last series, it is now an Austrian-Italian production. His new partner is Italian detective Lorenzo Fabbri (Kaspar Capparoni). The series will air in Australia in Italian with English subtitles, but is followed directly afterwards by a repeat of the German-language Inspector Rex.
A rather odd transition each week for fans…
