It’s the end of an era! Inspector Rex Season 8 premieres November 14th, 2023 in the U.S. and Canada on MHz Choice!

Originally premiering on Austrian TV in 1994, Inspector Rex (Beta Films) was an uber-popular international hit featuring the exploits of German Shepherd police dog Rex, his partners and the rest of the gang at the Vienna Criminal Police as they work together to solve often surprisingly hard-hitting crimes in the historic and picturesque Austrian capital.

Season 8 retains the same core team of Marc Hoffmann (Alexander Pschill), Niki Herzog (Elke Winkens), Fritz Kunz (Martin Weinek) and Dr. Leo Graf (Gerhard Zemann) for one last lap. Yes, folks, this is the final season of our favorite German Shepherd fighting crime in Vienna! And perhaps because of this, the tone of the season seems to call back to earlier years – more serious, but also with the expected moments of levity. Certainly the first episode features one of the most wrenching scenes our four-legged hero has ever been involved in – but before that, let’s break out the ham rolls. Woof!
