The "new and for the time being last" season of the action series "Alarm for Cobra 11 - The Autobahn Police" started on July 29, 2021, and the last episode aired on August 12, 2021. One is thinking about how "Alarm for Cobra 11" could continue, an RTL spokesman admitted when asked by the news agency spot on news in early July. "But we are convinced that the story of 'Cobra' on RTL has not been told," he gave hope to all fans. At the end of 2021, the good news: "Alarm for Cobra 11" will be continued as an event film series.
RTL is now showing the opening film on October 20th. On the following two Thursdays (October 27th and November 3rd), films two and three will premiere on the streaming service. In the coming year, the films will also be shown on RTL. Erdoğan Atalay (56) and Pia Stutzenstein (33) return to their roles in the series.
Semir Gerkhan (Atalay) has been rehabilitated after his prison stay and is back with the highway police. He now forms a strong team with Vicky Reisinger (Stutzenstein), who has just had a kidney transplant. They also have something in common privately: they both enjoy their newly won single life to the full - until Semir meets Bianca Kessler (Yasmina Djaballah) again. A new task also awaits the inspector: his daughter Dana is pregnant by Max and he is going to be a grandpa.
The second part "Machtlos" is about a block of flats in Cologne that suffers from a gang of drug dealers. Local residents have lost faith in the police and decide to fight back after little Abbie falls into a coma from drugs. One of them attacks the drug dealer and Semir has to shoot Abbie's uncle in self-defense. When the local residents then form a vigilante group and drug lord Miloš launches a counterattack, Vicky's life is in danger. Meanwhile, Max and pregnant Dana are in a serious car accident.
In the third part of the series entitled "Unprotected", Semir has to wait in the emergency room with Vicky and Bianca to finally find out news about Max, Dana and the unborn child after the car accident. Shortly after Semir was released from custody, a masked kidnapper, who only calls himself "Legion", took a young woman into his power in broad daylight. This is Denise Wallbusch, Semir's prison psychologist. The commissioner, who is actually on prosecutor Berling's hit list and is awaiting trial, risks everything in the kidnapping case.
Series veteran Erdoğan Atalay has played Commissioner Semir Gerkhan since 1996. The partners at his side changed a total of eight times. Among others, Mark Keller (56) or Tom Beck (43). In 2020, Pia Stutzenstein celebrated her debut as commissioner.
"I'm aware that series don't run forever and I was able to do a job for 25 years that I really liked," said Erdoğan Atalay in an interview with spot on news as he said goodbye to the series. That alone is very unusual in the film industry. He didn't expect the series to last so long. "I would certainly have continued for a while, but unfortunately I don't have the power to decide that." Saying goodbye to his role is "like divorcing a partner you still love."
