A second season has been confirmed for TV2 Charlie’s post WWII medical drama The New Nurses (Sygeplejeskolen), which concluded its first run on Sunday evening.
As the first season began, a shortfall of nursing staff following WWII had forced the profession to accept men. This story was told through the lens of trainee nurse Erik (Morten Hee Andersen), who had served in the military, as he became the first man to navigate the challenges of what was perceived to be a woman’s world.
When the series returns, Anna (Molly Egelind) makes a stand against her wealthy father, who does not approve of her decision to devote herself to caring for others- they just want her to be married. But Anna is determined to prove that she is worth more than that, though she must also try to balance her love for Erik with her education.
Returning cast members include Jesper Groth, Bent Neergaard, Jens Jørn Spottag and Katrine Greis-Rosenthal.
The series has been a huge success for TV 2 Charlie, with an average of 480,000 viewers watching the drama unfold at Fredenslund Hospital. Of the channel’s top ten most watched episodes of all time, five episodes are from Something’s Rockin’ (Mercur) in 2017 with the other five being from this season of Sygeplejeskolen.
It has yet to be revealed when season two of The New Nurses will air, but filming begins this week.
