Mille Dinesen Reveals Rita Season Five Premiere

Mille Dinesen has revealed on Instagram that Rita will return to TV2 in Denmark for its fifth season this June, with a global launch on Netflix expected to follow in the autumn.

Season five will see Rita (Mille Dinesen) freed from state school rules and bureaucracy when she opens her own school with friend and colleague Hjørdis (Lise Baastrup). Designing the school from scratch should be a dream come true for Rita, but it’s not as easy as it sounds and sparks soon begin to fly as she works alongside Hjørdis.

Mille Dinesen wrote on Instagram: “Dear Rita friends, Rita season 5 premieres 1st June on TV2 and TV2 PLAY at 8am. Yay! And to all fans outside of Danmark: Rita season 5 will hopefully be on Netflix sometime in the autumn. Will keep you posted.”

The cast for season five will see the return of many familiar faces, including Rasmus (Carsten Bjørnlund), Rita’s son Jeppe (Nikolaj Groth), Jeppe’s father, Niels (Peter Gantzler), Helle (Ellen Hillingsø), and Hjørdis’ boyfriend Uffe (Kristoffer Fabricius).
