Nordic Entertainment Group (NENT Group) has commissioned a further two seasons of the Viaplay original series Hammarvik, created by best-selling Swedish author Camilla Läckberg.
Disa Östrand (Love & Anarchy), Martin Stenmarck and Linda Santiago (Fantastic Beasts: The Crimes of Grindelwald) will reprise their roles in the third and fourth seasons of Hammarvik, which will feature more explosive secrets and desires of the inhabitants of the small Swedish town. The new seasons of the show will premiere exclusively on NENT Group’s Viaplay streaming service.
Hammarvik seasons three and four are written by Läckberg, Lovisa Löwhagen and Jessika Jankert, and are produced by Mastiff in partnership with Creative Society Productions. Filming is set to start this summer in Vänersborg in western Sweden.
Camilla Läckberg: “The response to Hammarvik has been like nothing I’ve ever experienced. I get asked for a new season almost every day, which is why I’m so excited to reveal that both a third and a fourth season are on the way. Since I’m involved, there will of course be a crime to solve, and no let-up in the intrigues among the people in Hammarvik.”
Filippa Wallestam, NENT Group chief content officer, said: “Reviving the Nordic soap opera with a noir twist came at just the right moment for Viaplay viewers. With its multiple engrossing plotlines, familiar characters and a devious mystery to unravel, Hammarvik has been hugely successful during these challenging times and has also brought new audiences to streaming for the first time. Together with Camilla, we will make the coming two seasons even more unmissable.”
