Solsidan Confirmed For Three New Seasons

After five seasons and a movie, TV4 and C More have announced that hit Swedish comedy Solsidan has been commissioned for three new seasons with the first ten episodes to air next year.

The series follows the lives of two very different families in the upmarket neighbourhood of Solsidan: Alex and Anna, who moved there to start a family, along with Fredde and Mickan who are determined to maintain their facade as the richest and happiest couple in the area.

Head of Drama for TV4 and C More, Josefine Tengblad, said: “Solsidan, which is unique in its genre, has succeeded through a dream mix. It combines important and serious subjects while managing the art of being incredibly funny.”

“I love that Solsidan has worked as a kind of laughter therapy for Swedish people – and it feels an amazing privilege that we will now continue to offer it for several more years.”

Reprising their roles for the new episodes are Felix Herngren as Alex, Mia Skäringer as Anna, Johan Rheborg as Fredde, Josephine Bornebusch as Mickan, Henrik Dorsin as Ove and Malin Cederbladh as Anette.

Solsidan season six premieres on TV4 and C More in late 2019, with series stars Josephine Bornebusch and Johan Rheborg each to direct two episodes. The next two seasons will air in 2021 and 2023.
