Epic Saga The Restaurant Returns For Third Season

SVT has commissioned a third season of epic saga The Restaurant (Vår tid är nu) which follows the Löwander family and their restaurant through the decades that follow World War II.

The series begins on Peace Day 1945 and centres on the Löwander family who run a prestigious restaurant in Stockholm. Season one covers the years 1945-1950 and season two moves the story on to 1955-1962, while the third season picks up the action in 1968-1971.

SVT Head of Drama Anna Croneman said: “The love that our younger audience has shown for the show makes it really fun to be able to offer another season and to tell more about our ‘family’ during an incredibly exciting and changing time in Sweden.”

The first season of The Restaurant will air on Viaplay in Autumn 2018, when SVT premieres season two. The third season will premiere on SVT in 2019, and then air on Viaplay the following year.

Filming for season three begins in Jonsered next March.
