Season 3

Die Byl is the story of Colonel Piet van der Bijl (Waldemar Schultz), a brilliant detective who specialises in catching serial killers.

His entire being is focused on life's details and the pieces of the puzzle which don't always seem to fit.

Though his personal relationships might suffer due to his obsession with his work, he would do anything for the people he holds dear.

The reign of terror conducted by Smiley (Deon Lotz), and especially Adriaan Klopper (Laudo Liebenberg), in the previous season, has left Byl and his team scarred and wounded.

They had to deal with the loss of their colleagues as well as the individual trauma each one of them suffered.

Capt. Lena Maree (Lika Berning) struggles with her responsibilities as mother and woman, which are dwarfed by what her job requires of her.

Sergeant Juan Stuurman's (Marvin-Lee Beukes) recovery from physical and psychological injuries tests his fledgling relationship with Dr Shani van Rooi (Trudy van Rooy).

Dr Fritz Barnard (Eric Nobbs) and Nicky van As (Milan Murray) are still the moral compass and anchor of the team, but even they are battling to keep it together.

Byl feels responsible. Without him, the team would never have been the target of so much hate.

In the third season of Die Byl, all these emotions and haunting memories are tangled up in chilling new murder cases.

Die Byl is an M-Net Original Production, produced by kykNET and Marche Media.

The head writer this season was Leon Kruger. Jaco Smit was a director.
