Our favorite duo is back in a second season of the successful series ‘Swedish Dicks’, the very first Viaplay Original. The comedy-drama follows two mismatched Swedish private detectives – played by Peter Stormare (‘John Wick: Chapter 2’; ‘Fargo’; ‘American Gods’) and Johan Glans (Best Male Comedian, Swedish Comedy Awards) – as they take on the most bizarre investigative cases Los Angeles has ever seen.
Stormare and Glans will be joined by earlier announced Hollywood actors Lori Petty (‘Orange is the New Black’), Haley Joel Osment (‘Silicon Valley’; ‘The Sixth Sense’), Justin Chambers (‘Grey’s Anatomy’) and Traci Lords (‘EastSiders’; ‘Blade’).
“Peter Stormare is lovingly crazy in the very best, tear-inducing way, ginormously funny (not just his nose) and game for anything. I love him madly,” says Lori Petty.
A well-known face will re-appear in the second season: special guest star Keanu Reeves (‘John Wick’, ‘The Matrix’) as ‘Tex’, a charismatic stuntman hiding a dark secret worthy of noir’s home city.
“Season one of ‘Swedish Dicks’ ended on a massive cliffhanger – and as soon as I found out where the twisted genius of Peter Stormare planned to take the story next, I knew I had to be part of it!” says Keanu Reeves.
The series is produced by Viking Brothers Entertainment and Brain Academy, a part of MTG-owned nice entertainment group, in collaboration with global content leader Lionsgate (NYSE: LGF.A, LGF.B) with Glenn Lund, Peter Settman and Fredrik Ljungberg serving as executive producers and Nina Lund as producer. ‘Swedish Dicks’ is created by Settman, Andrew Lowery and Viking Brothers.
Peter Settman, actor, TV host and founder of Brain Academy, comments:
“As super-fans ourselves, we’re thrilled to welcome back Keanu Reeves as a special guest star. His on-screen chemistry with Peter Stormare makes this show unmissable, and Season 2 will again show audiences around the world that there’s nothing predictable about the ‘Swedish Dicks’!”
In September 2016, ‘Swedish Dicks’ was crowned Viaplay’s most successful premiere ever.
The second season of ‘Swedish Dicks’, consisting of 10 episodes, will premiere exclusively on Viaplay on 25 December. Two episodes will be released at launch, followed by two episodes every Monday until the season finale on 22 January.
