German director Edgar Reitz is to continue his “Heimat” series with six new episodes set to roll next year.

Exploring the period between the fall of the Berlin Wall and the new millennium, “Heimat” will be financed by German pubcasters SWR and MDR, with backing from U.K. pubcaster BBC.

Reitz’s previous “Heimat” series were aired in 1984 and 1993. Reitz and Thomas Brussig (“Sonnenallee”) scripted the new skein.
