Netflix today debuted both the Ragnarok Season 2 trailer and the trailer for Good on Paper. The highly-anticipated return of Norway’s coming-of-age drama Ragnarok is happening on May 27, 2021.
The second season of Ragnarok 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 Ragnarok Season 2, the conflict gets tougher, evil gets more focused, and the choices even 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?
Ragnarok stars David Stakston (Magne), Danu Sunth (Iman), Jonas Strand Gravli (Laurits), Theresa Frostad Eggesbø (Saxa), Herman Tømmeraas (Fjor), Emma Bones (Gry), Henriette Steenstrup, Odd-Magnus Williamson, Synnøve Macody Lund, Bjørn Sundquist and Gísli Örn Garðarsson.
New cast members for the second season include Vebjørn Enger (Jens), Benjamin Helstad (Harry), Billie Barker (Signy), Jesper Malm (Odd Moland) and Espen Sigurdsen (Halvor Lange).
Netflix‘s Norwegian language series is produced by SAM Productions, a Danish screenwriter-based production company.
Adam Price and Emilie Lebech Kaae serve as the creators and writers. The executive producer is Meta Louise Foldager Sørensen (Antichrist, Melancholia), producer is Stine Meldgaard Madsen (Pros and Cons, Something’s Rockin’), and director is Mogens Hagedorn.
Good on Paper is coming to the streaming service on June 23. Based on a mostly true story, Good on Paper is written by and stars the hilariously sharp-witted Iliza Shlesinger.
Also starring Ryan Hansen, Margaret Cho, and Rebecca Rittenhouse, the film was directed by Kimmy Gatewood.
In the movie, Andrea Singer always put her stand-up career first, and while dating came easy, love wasn’t a priority… that is until she meets Dennis, a quirky nerd with disarming charm who coaxes her into letting her guard down.
Her best friend Margot isn’t convinced he’s all he seems and she urges Andrea to embark on a wild goose chase to uncover who Dennis really is.
“I wanted to write something funny, unique, and relatable,” said Shlesinger. “A comedian turns real life into art, so I shared my bizarre story and had fun doing it. What started as a cathartic release became a passion project that I put a lot of comedy and heart into.”
Good on Paper was produced by Han West, David Bernon, Paul Bernon, and Sam Slater. The executive producers include Iliza Shlesinger, Sejin Croninger, Rowan Riley, and Vania Schlogel.
