NENT Group Renews The Machinery


The Viaplay original The Machinery, starring Norwegian actor Kristoffer Joner (The Revenant, Mission: Impossible—Fallout), has been renewed for a second season by Nordic Entertainment Group (NENT Group).

Season two of The Machinery will continue the dramatic story of Olle Hultén (Joner), who is serving time in jail, accused of being involved in a murder committed by his ex-wife, Monika (Emilia Roosman). The new six-part season is slated to premiere exclusively on Viaplay in 2022.

Hanna Alström (Kingsman: The Golden Circle) and Julia Schacht (Melk) are also returning for The Machinery season two. The series is directed by Richard Holm (NENT Group’s Honour) and produced by Anagram Sweden.

Filippa Wallestam, NENT Group’s chief content officer, said: “The key to The Machinery is its depiction of what seemingly ordinary people can do when their lives are turned upside down. Kristoffer Joner is one of Norway’s biggest screen talents, and he makes us feel every scar his character collects in this breathless series. The Viaplay viewer response to The Machinery so far shows the huge potential of the Nordic action genre.”

Joner added: “I’m ready for another beating from the guys behind The Machinery. We delivered a super intense first season, and now I’m looking forward to helping make round two even more brutal. I won’t be satisfied until viewers have sweat marks on their couch.”
