Netflix has ordered a second season of the Swedish original series Snabba Cash, starring Evin Ahmad in the leading role.
The second season will continue the story of Leya and her contrasting life between a ruthless start-up environment and Stockholm’s underworld. Snabba Cash season two, written by Oskar Söderlund and directed by Jesper Ganslandt, who also are the creators and showrunners behind the series, will be released globally on Netflix in 2022.
Snabba Cash is produced by Nicklas Wikström Nicastro for SF Studios in collaboration with Strive Stories. It is inspired by the internationally acclaimed book Snabba Cash by author Jens Lapidus, which has previously been adapted into three feature films by SF Studios.
Jesper Ganslandt, director, and Oskar Söderlund, head writer, said: “With Snabba Cash season one we wanted to tell a contemporary story. With characters that, though they commit morally doubtful acts, share the same feelings and dreams as many of us. We are overwhelmed that so many people have taken our series to their hearts. But the coolest thing of all is that a lot of people have felt they finally have been represented in a big drama series. That is truly the finest reward of all.”
Nicklas Wikström Nicastro, producer, said: “I am so grateful to be able to continue the joyous collaboration together with Oskar and Jesper after what we achieved on the first season. I am also thrilled to do this together with the friends at SF Studios and Netflix, who have shown this project nothing but faith and support ever since it was first initiated.”
Tim King, executive VP of production, and Susann Billberg Rydholm, head of TV drama at SF Studios, said: “It’s an honor to be able to produce a second season of Snabba Cash for Netflix. Season one engaged and moved a broad cross-section of both the Swedish and international public, and we look forward to continuing that success in a second season with the outstanding talent behind this show.”
