Viaplay has announced that action thriller The Machinery (Maskineriet) will return for a second season, with Kristoffer Joner (The Revenant) set to reprise his role as an ordinary family man who finds himself on the run as his life begins to spiral out of control.
Season two continues the story of Olle Hultén (Kristoffer Joner) who is forced on the run after waking up on a ferry beside a mysterious bag of cash and a gun. Now serving a jail term, Olle is accused of involvement in a murder committed by his ex-wife Monika (Emilia Roosman), and is again thrown into a rapid sequence of events driven by his own hidden past.
Viaplay Chief Content Officer, Filippa Wallestam, said: “The key to The Machinery is its depiction of what seemingly ordinary people can do when their lives are turned upside down. Kristoffer Joner is one of Norway’s biggest screen talents and he makes us feel every scar his character collects in this breathless series.”
Kristoffer Joner added: “I’m ready for another beating from the guys behind The Machinery. We delivered a super intense first season, and now I’m looking forward to helping make round two even more brutal. I won’t be satisfied until viewers have sweat marks on their couch.”
Season two of The Machinery, directed by Richard Holm, is slated to premiere across the Nordic region on Viaplay in 2022.
