‘The Legacy’ Set To Become A Spellbinding Trilogy


The dysfunctional Danish family pave the way for upcoming Nordic shows to look out for.

With the second season of Maya Ilsøe’s blistering drama The Legacy having recently been aired on DR this month, it has been announced that a third instalment to the Grønnegaard saga is in the pipeline.

While UK audiences anxiously await the second season of The Legacy to hit our screens, a collection of other riveting Nordic drama is in the works to maintain the irresistible attraction we have to the Scandinavian quality of television.

We can also relish a third season from the Swedish-Danish hybrid The Bridge in the autumn/ winter, starring Sofia Helin. Despite the departure of Kim Bodnia, the third chapter is will focus on a Danish story-line.

In 2015, we can also anticipate BBC Four’s acquisition of Ole Bornedal’s historical 8-part Danish miniseries 1864 in the Spring, whichreunites Pilou Asbæk, Sidse Babett Knudsen and Søren Malling; the stars of Borgen. In addition to this, the Swedish detective drama adapted from Jan Arnald’s successful series of crime novels, Arne Dahl is returning for a second season.

Also from DR, a brand new financial thriller Follow the Money will also be premiering at the end of 2015, which is reported to star Thomas Bo Larsen (The Hunt, 2012) and Nikolaj Lie Kaas (The Keeper of Lost Causes, 2013). Two seasons have already been commissioned and begin filming in April.
