Viaplay has announced that Swedish legal thriller Honour (Heder) will return for a third season in 2022, continuing its exploration of inequality and injustice.
Season three opens with a terrorist act connected to the Incel (involuntarily celibate) subculture as the four partners of Stockholm law firm Heder (Honour) face unprecedented personal risks and ethical dilemmas. Their commitment to defending women’s rights and society’s most exploited people is stronger than ever – but can their ideals survive both today’s challenges and the secrets of the past?
Alexandra Rapaport (Gåsmamman), Eva Röse (Locked Down), Anja Lundqvist (Together) and Julia Dufvenius (Modus) will reprise their leading role in the show which is based on an idea by Sofia Helin (The Bridge) and developed by Rapaport, Röse, Lundqvist and Dufvenius.
Alexandra Rapaport said: “I’m so proud and expectant ahead of our third season, which will be incredibly exciting. Our show clearly responds to a need and audiences have overwhelmed us with love, so we’ll do everything to live up to the trust we’ve received from Viaplay and the viewers and make a real kickass season.”
Viaplay Chief Content Officer, Filippa Wallestam, added: “What began as a personal project for some of Sweden’s leading actresses is now a Nordic and international success story that is more relevant than ever. Honour is top-class entertainment and more – we’ve heard from viewers who have felt able to report harassment after seeing the show. Renewing for a third season feels both exciting and urgent.”
Honour season three will be directed by Joakim Eliasson (Gåsmamman) and is set to begin filming this autumn.
