NPO Commissions Season Two of Banijay Benelux’s Anonymous


Dutch broadcaster NPO has commissioned a second season of the crime thriller Anonymous from Banijay Benelux’s NL Film and BNNVARA.

The series centers on history teacher Jurre and prosecutor Saar, a couple who battle the criminal underworld to protect their family. While Saar fights as a public prosecutor, Jurre does it his own way, as “Anonymous,” and neither knows about the other’s actions.

The cast of the show includes Jeroen Spitzenberger, Anniek Pheifer, Mies van Rooijen and Sil van der Zwan. It is directed by Diederik van Rooijen. Banijay Rights handles international distribution.

Dennis Cornelisse, producer at NL Film, said: “In a world where justice hangs in the balance, Anonymous is a gripping thriller about a couple’s relentless pursuit fighting for what they believe is right, and a reminder that every day heroes walk among us. As a creative company, it is always brilliant to have the opportunity to delve deeper into a story with a returning series, and we look forward to working with BNNVARA and NPO on the new season.”

Van Rooijen added: “Anonymous is far from over. Thanks to the many loyal followers, a second season is in the works for this successful crime series. I’m incredibly proud of what we’ve created, and the show has been so embraced by viewers. The fight against crime has only just begun for Jurre and his family!”
