YA Drama Thunder in My Heart Returning to Viaplay


The Viaplay original Thunder in My Heart has been commissioned for a second season, set to air in 2023.

Creator and star Amy Deasismont headlines the new season. The eight-part season two picks up a year after the first.

The three friends—Sigrid (Deasismont, My Skinny Sister), Sam (Alexander Abdallah, Snabba Cash) and Antonia (Julia Lyskova)—continue to find their way uneasily into adulthood. Sigrid’s relationship with her father, whose attempts to control her little brother are increasingly destructive, proves to be her biggest challenge yet.

Rainmaker Content handles rights as international sales agent.

Deasismont commented: “It feels wonderful to spend more time with these characters and to dig even deeper into their destinies in a new season. Continuing the Thunder in My Heart journey means so much to me, and I’m happy and proud to do it together with Viaplay and B-Reel Films.”

Filippa Wallestam, Viaplay Group’s chief content officer, said: “Our young adult originals are proven to enthrall audiences of all ages while bringing a new generation of viewers to our service. Thunder in My Heart is a shining example of how Viaplay backs talented young creators. One year, one Kristallen award and countless rave reviews later, we’re delighted to partner with Amy again on this compelling and very personal show.”
