Viaplay has commissioned a second season of Partisan, which was named Best Series at Canneseries last year and delivered record viewing figures for the premium streaming service.
The five episode second season will continue the compelling and disturbing story of the rural gated community of Jordnära, and is set to deliver more of the distinctive visual style, dramatic tension and hard-hitting themes of season one.
Returning cast members for season two include Anna Björk (Quicksand), Sofia Karemyr (Love Me), Ylvali Rurling (Snow Angels), Linus Wahlgren (Max Anger), Emelie Garbers (Aniara) and Andreas Kundler (Gentlemen & Gangsters).
Director, Amir Chamdin, said: “I’m so happy about making another season of `Partisan’. The interest and attention around the series has been huge, both in Sweden and internationally. It’s a given that we carry on where season one left off, and Jordnära, the community that we love to hate, will once again be at the centre of the action.”
Viaplay Chief Content Officer, Filippa Wallestam, added: “This series represents a milestone for Viaplay and, given its recognition by the Canneseries judges, for European streamed drama. In shot composition, use of music and sheer all-out intensity, Amir Chamdin has created a world the viewer can never forget. Renewing Partisan is one of our most exciting and also easiest decisions this year.”
Partisan season two will premiere exclusively on Viaplay across the Nordic region in 2022.
