End clap for Baron Noir
A suprise ? Not that much. ” First of all, there is fatigue and the need to do something else ” confessed Eric Benzekri – the co-creator, at the microphone of Télérama. Above all, he felt that his story, despite the door left open during the finale of season 3, was actually over, ” The tragic fall of season 3 closed a cycle since Black Baron was based on the relationship between Philippe Rickwaert and Amélie Dorendeu , two characters with different conceptions of politics, who loved and hated each other. “
Also, going beyond this point would simply have threatened the balance of the series and its recipe that has worked so much in recent years. Eric Benzekri recalled that following Philippe Rickwaert at the Elysée ” would have changed the nature of the series “. Where the ” third season put a foot in the dystopia, the anticipation, in reflection of the current policy “, the possible season 4 would have made pass Baron Noir towards something more risky, ” To go further, it was to risk to fall into science fiction. By dint of anticipating too much, we could have completely screwed up. And we couldn't back down . “
Behind the disappointment of seeing Baron Noir end, therefore, hides the satisfaction of seeing the series end at the right time. It's frustrating, but reassuring.
