A freestanding prequel to the original ‘Black Lake’ (Swedish: ‘Svartsjön’), season two stars Filip Berg (‘Black Lake’ season one); Hedda Stiernstedt (‘The Restaurant’); Alida Morberg (‘Sensoria’); André Eriksen (‘Vikings’); Bahar Pars (‘A Man Called Ove’); David Nzinga (NENT Group’s ‘Hassel’); Esther Uddén (‘Finaste familjen’); Anja Landgré (‘Nina Frisk’); and Daniel Larsson (the ‘Johan Falk’ series).
The series opens with Johan Ceder (Filip Berg) checking into a drug rehabilitation centre in the Stockholm archipelago as he struggles to free himself both from family expectations and the criminal underworld. But something on the island isn’t quite right – and it’s soon clear that in season two of ‘Black Lake’, the secrets are darker than ever.
‘Black Lake’ season two is produced by Lotta Westberg at Jarowskij from an original idea by Ulf Kvensler (‘The Restaurant’). Richard Jarnhed and Per Simonsson direct the eight-part series and co-write together with Lovisa Milles, Moa Herngren and Peter Lindblom.
Season one of ‘Black Lake’ was the most viewed series when first broadcast on NENT Group’s free-TV channel TV3 in autumn 2016 and is one of the most popular series on NENT Group’s video streaming service Viaplay. The first season reached international audiences on BBC Four and on AMC Networks-backed Shudder.
