Johanna Wokalek becomes new ARD crime commissioner

Earlier this week, actress Verena Altenberger announced her departure from the ARD crime thriller “Polizeiruf 110”. His successor is now determined.

Johanna Wokalek will play a main role in “Polizeiruf 110” next year. The 47-year-old can be seen as Chief Inspector Cris Blohm in the Munich edition of the ARD thriller.

Wokalek will succeed Verena Altenberger. Earlier this week, it was announced that the 34-year-old would step down from her role as Elisabeth “Bessie” Eyckhoff after four years.

Wakalek is probably best known to German audiences as Pope Joan from the film of the same name by director Sönke Wortmann. Filming for his first ‘police call’ case ‘Little Boxes’ began last week in Munich and is set to continue through mid-August. The show will then air in the second half of 2023.

Price for Wakalek

The responsible Bayerischer Rundfunk (BR) should be happy with Wakalek’s commitment. The actress has already been active on the theatrical stage, the television screen and the cinema screen. This year again, she received the Bavarian Film Award in the category “Best Actress” for her role in the film “Beckenrand Sheriff”.

Stephan Zimmer will be seen as Dennis Eden alongside Wakalek. The actor is known from “Eberhof crime thrillers” and gained attention for his cabaret performance by CSU boss Markus Söder on “Auf dem Nockherberg”.
