Content: Things are getting tight for the staff of the acting agency ASK (Agence Samuel Kerr): after Matthias left the company, Andréa has taken the helm. But the tough agent isn't just struggling to balance her role as a mother with the increased challenges of her job. What's worse is that more and more clients, including really big names, are leaving the agency. The battle with the competition is getting tougher and the financial situation more and more dicey. Even if especially Andréa is still willing to fight with all means for the clients, the days of ASK now seem to be finally counted...

This fourth season of the French hit series "Call my Agent" should originally also be the last. But through the cooperation with Netflix, Dominique Besnehard, on whose idea the series is based, was able to announce in April 2021 that there will not be a TV movie for the series, but possibly also a 5th season. Really, this would not be necessary, as the six new episodes form a very nice and round conclusion to the story. That it can of course still go on, but is already addressed in the series itself. So it says for example in the last episode: "The end of a thing is always the beginning of something new". And so, despite this very coherent finale, fans of the series can definitely look forward to new stories surrounding the team of ASK.

Now, however, first to this fourth season. Change seems to be the overriding theme of the new episodes here. While Andréa in particular is struggling to keep the agency going, other characters are ready to break new ground. Matthias tries his hand as a producer, Hervé finds new happiness in acting and even Camille plays with the idea of building something completely new. It is very exciting and entertaining to watch how some characters vehemently fight against the fact that too much changes, while other characters rather see it as an opportunity.

Stronger than in previous seasons, the new episodes convince with the development of the characters. First and foremost Andréa - very strongly played by Camille Cottin - who now not only bears the responsibility for her own career, but also for the entire agency and for her child. So she is forced to adapt to the new situations in a different way than she might have done in the past. On the other hand, there are situations in which the old her breaks out of her, which in turn has more extreme consequences than was previously the case.

Besides the main plot and character development, however, the series clearly thrives this season on the sometimes delightfully self-deprecating guest appearances by well-known actors and actresses. When, for example, Sandrine Kiberlain makes a fool of herself because she wants to give up acting and make a career as a stand-up comedian, when Charlotte Gainsbourg doesn't dare tell a director friend what she really thinks of his script, or when Sigourney Weaver portrays herself as a diva who only wants to play alongside attractive, younger men, then it's just great fun for the audience.

No question: season 4 would have seen "Call my Agent" off at its peak. But if it manages to maintain the quality and good mix of drama and humor for the planned sequel (or reboot), then the news that it will continue after all is really, really good news. For these six episodes, which definitely represent a special caesura in the story, is clearly again: absolutely worth watching!

Picture + Sound: Image and sound quality are, as with the previous seasons, on a good level. The coloring looks pleasantly warm and especially in the outdoor scenes very natural. The overall sharpness can absolutely convince, only with the detail representation there are here and there minimal point deductions. And once again, there's no reason to complain when it comes to contrast matching. As for the audio, the well-tuned dialogue is once again the focus of the Dolby Digital 5.1 mix. However, small ambient noises here and there also provide some movement in the surround. Good!

Extras: Bonus material is unfortunately also not with season 4.

Conclusion: "Call my Agent" goes with six new, again very successful episodes in the fourth season, which should actually be the finale. Since it now but still continues, the season forms a highly entertaining caesura, after which much will have changed. One may be curious. The DVD convinces with a good picture and sound quality. Unfortunately, there is no bonus material. Nevertheless, the quality of the series is crucial and this is so high that for this double DVD is quite clear: Absolutely recommendable!
