Wisting Season Two In Production For Viaplay

Viaplay has announced that production has begun for the second season of hit Norwegian crime drama Wisting, based on the novels of Jørn Lier Horst, and will premiere on the streaming service in Spring 2021.

Season two sees Larvik detective William Wisting (Sven Nordin) taking on two of the most challenging cases of his career. He first faces a race against time to hunt down an escaped killer before the latter can strike again, and then has to solve the macabre mystery behind an unknown woman’s head placed on a spike in the centre of Larvik.

Viaplay Chief Content Officer, Filippa Wallestam, said: “Detective William Wisting might just be Norway’s most wanted man! The first season was a landmark, both for Viaplay’s position as the home of unique Nordic storytelling and for the entire noir genre… Wisting season two will be one of the most anticipated streaming events of spring 2021.”

Wisting season two, written and directed by Trygve Allister Diesen (The Third Eye) comprises eight parts and is slated to premiere on Viaplay across the Nordic region in Spring 2021.
