HBO Europe Confirms Beforeigners Season Two

HBO Europe has announced that Norwegian sci-fi dramedy Beforeigners (Fremvandrerne) has been renewed for a six-part second season and begins production next month.

Written by Lilyhammer co-creators Anne Bjørnstad and Eilif Skodvin, the series follows a new phenomenon as powerful flashes of light occur in the oceans around the world and ‘beforeigners’ from the past mysteriously begin to appear.

These strangers have no idea what happened, but when Alfhildr (Krista Kosonen) from the Viking Age is partnered with police officer Lars Haaland (Nicolai Cleve Broch) as part of a departmental integration scheme they discover a mass conspiracy behind the origin of the newcomers.

Antony Root, EVP of Original Programming at HBO Europe, said: “In the Nordics we loved the first season of Beforeigners, which travelled exceptionally well across our regions, and we can’t wait to show audiences what Anne and Eilif have come up with for season two.”
