The successful SRF series « Tschugger » is back with its third season, once again immersing viewers in the rollicking adventures of two cops Bax (David Constantin) and Pirmin (Dragan Vujic) from Haut-Valais. Inspired by the spirit of Starsky and Hutch and rooted in the 70s with a touch of humor and new technologies, the series has won over the German-speaking Swiss audience with an impressive market share of 34%.

For this new season, two renowned Vaudois comedians, Vincent Kucholl and Vincent Veillon, join the cast, bringing a new level of burlesque to the already wild world of « Tschugger. »

Two murders

In the lead roles, we find Dragan Vujic (Agent Pirmin), Anna Rossinelli (Federal Agent Annette), and David Constantin (Agent Bax).

We are thrilled to reunite with the various characters from the series « Smetterling » (Cedric Schild), Valmira (Annalena Miano), Juni (Arsène Junior Page), Fricker (Olivier Imboden), and even meet new characters from the flatlands.

The amalgamation of police stations in Upper and Lower Valais compels the agents to occupy the same office space in Sion. As Pirmin embraces the delights of fatherhood and Bax endeavors to reconstruct his life beyond the canton, an undisclosed will and two murders shatter their routine, propelling them into fresh adventures. The question lingers: Can they, once more, succeed in preserving Switzerland?

Vincent Kucholl and Vincent Veillon, famous for their comedic performances, take the reins of the series by portraying the police officers Clavien and Rudaz. Based at the central police station in Sion, our favorite cops are poised to unleash a new wave of laughter. The series humorously explores Swiss stereotypes, particularly those related to the people of Valais, while casting a retro-futuristic gaze on the 70s, where new technologies intertwine with zany police investigations.
