The series stars Alexandra Rapaport (Gåsmamman), Anja Lundqvist (Alex), Julia Dufvenius (Modus) and Eva Röse (Maria Wern) as the four partners of Swedish law firm Heder, who are committed to defending the victims of injustice and sexual crimes in particular.
The first season saw the firm come under pressure when a routine case has unforeseen consequences, leading to threats, violence and public recriminations. However, the real threat to the lawyers was the dark secret they share and the rifts that formed between them.
Filippa Wallestam, Chief Content Officer at Nordic Entertainment Group, said: “We are incredibly proud of Heder, which has really been embraced by viewers… Incredibly exciting and with strong leading women, Heder has also broadened Viaplay’s audience. We are, of course, very pleased to announce that a second season is coming after the first season’s rather dramatic end.”
Season two of Heder begins filming in spring 2020. It will premiere on Viaplay across the Nordic region in 2021 and air later on TV3.
