Two years after the end of the second series, Couwenberg (Kees Prins) is in prison. However, he is "only" sentenced for blackmailing of a city council member, and not for violations against lawyer Willem Steenhouwer (Fedja van Huêt). A number of high end attorneys have made it possible for the Public's Prosecutor's Office to terminate the case due to insufficient evidence. Willem can not live with this; after all, he has looked death into the eyes several times already. He once more tries to find happiness with Iris (Sylvia Hoeks), but the situation keeps eating away at him. He wants to resolve the issue and seems to be able to do so when the somewhat mysterious Anna (Thekla Reuten) comes into play, who also appears to have a great resentment against Couwenberg.

Planet X contributed various visual effects for this third season, such as chroma keyd scenes with cars, adjustments or replacement of elements such as building exteriors and numerous screens showing hacking activity of new character Alex Eckhardt (on-set screen content through ScreenInvaders).

One of the more elaborate VFX scenes includes a collision between a car and a biker. The shot was broken up into multiple passes and combined afterwards. First, the biker did his run, passing the crossing and continuing without any interruption while the camera followed along. In a separate pass, both biker and camera were re-aligned on the exact same spot they should be on impact with the car, but now in a locked off situation. The biker was pulled by a rig and fell unto a stunt mat. In a separate pass, the car came in at great speed and braked for the imaginary biker. All passes were collected and merged together to create the illusion the camera follows the biker and is hit on the crossing in one continuous shot.

Added background elements sell the illusion the shooting location was in the vicinity of Schiphol airport.
