Ragnarok Season 2 Filming Begins!

-

Netflix announced today that Ragnarok Season 2 filming has commenced for a 2021 premiere on the streaming service! The cast is back in the fictitious town of Edda where the conflict between the Gods and Giants is getting tougher.

The six-episode Norwegian drama is written by award-winning writer Adam Price (Borgen), Ragnarok Season 1) and Emilie Lebech Kaae and will be directed by Mogens Hagedorn. Ragnarok is a coming-of-age drama building on, and contributing to, a new and surprising angle on Norse mythology.

The second season will pick up where the first season left: What do you do when you’re a 17-year-old high schooler who has just learned that you’re up against an ancient and extremely powerful enemy that is holding an entire town, perhaps even an entire country, in an iron grip?

Magne has to accept that now that he’s ready for battle – his enemies are too many and too strong. Is there anyone else who, like him, has supernatural powers? And will he be able to find these people in time? And what happens when it turns out that his little brother, Laurits, is also quite exceptional, but that he views the world very differently from Magne?

In the second season of Ragnarok, the conflict gets tougher, evil gets more focused, and the choices ever more desperate. In the midst of all this, Magne is faced with the fundamental question: How far are you willing to go in order to save your family?

The series is produced by SAM Productions, a Danish screenwriter-based production company. Adam Price and Emilie Lebech Kaae function as creators and writers, while the executive producer is Meta Louise Foldager Sørensen (Antichrist, Melancholia).

The producer is Stine Meldgaard Madsen (Pros and Cons, Something’s Rockin’) and the director is Mogens Hagedorn.

The cast of Ragnarok includes David Stakston (Magne), Danu Suntharasigamany (Iman), Jonas Strand Gravli (Laurits), Theresa Frostad Eggesbø (Saxa), Herman Tømmeraas (Fjor), Emma Bones (Gry), Henriette Steenstrup, and Odd-Magnus Williamson, Synnøve Macody Lund, Bjørn Sundquist, and Gísli Örn Garðarsson.

The new cast members are Vebjørn Enger (Jens), Benjamin Helstad (Harry), Billie Barker (Signy), Jesper Malm (Odd Moland) and Espen Sigurdsen (Halvor Lange).

The first season of the Norwegian-language drama series debuted on Netflix January 31st. It consists of six episodes.
