Netflix strikes again with the new European TV series. And after the first season, will this Norwegian show continue with Post Mortem: No One Dies in Skarnes season 2?
The foreign-language, thriller, mystery, crime TV series Post Mortem: No One Dies in Skarnes season 2 (in Norwegian called Post Mortem: ingendør i Skarnes) was released on August 25, 2021, on Netflix.
Created by Petter Holmsen, this TV series kind of reminds us of Australian TV show Glitch since both of them have the similar premises: back from the dead.
Directed by Harald Zwart and Petter Holmsen and produced by Espen Horn and Kristian Strand Sinkerud, this Norwegian TV series follows the story of Live Hallangen who gets back to life after being declared dead. When she was on the forensic table, she suddenly wakes up and craving for blood.
In the meantime, her brother who is also a funeral agent Odd, tries to keep the family’s funeral home business up and running. However, there is not enough people dying in the town. Trying to help her brother out, she knows that her thirst for blood can solve Odd’s problem. So Live is in this dilemma whether or not she will sacrifice people lives for the sake of her own crave and her family business.
It is widely known that Netflix has brought up the high quality foreign-language TV series and movies to the global audiences through its platform. Thanks to Netflix, now we can watch many great series and movies from around the world, and the excellent shows also receive the global attention and appreciation that they deserve.
Post Mortem: No One Dies in Skarnes is not an exception. Although the premise is not 100% innovative, but they can execute it very well, therefore this TV show receives huge praises from its audiences and critical acclaim.
This TV series receives 7.1 out of 10 scores from IMDB and 85% average audience score from Rotten Tomatoes.
Since there is still a lot to explore in the storyline, will they make Post Mortem: No One Dies in Skarnes season 2?
Post Mortem: No One Dies In Skarnes Season 2—Release Date
Although the second season is highly anticipated, Netflix hasn’t made any official announcement regarding the renewal status of Post Mortem: No One Dies in Skarnes season 2. It’s actually understandable, since Netflix needs time to review the performance, rating, and viewership of each show to decide whether or not they will continue it.
And if Netflix announce that there will be Post Mortem: No One Dies in Skarnes season 2, we can expect to see it in late 2022 at the earliest—considering that the production will run smoothly with no delay. If the announcement or the production takes a longer time, we can even see it in 2023.
Post Mortem: No One Dies In Skarnes Season 2—What Will It be About?
In a city called Skarnes, Live Hallangen gets back from the death and starts to show the symptom like a vampire—craving for blood. She also infects a local policeman named Reniert.
Long story short, Dr. Sverre finds out about them and wants to lock Live and Reinert in a barn. But both of them managed to escape and Reniert kills Dr. Sverre.
A local policewoman named Judith then wants to bring Dr. Sverre’s body for an autopsy and also investigate the murder. However, in order to save Live, Odd embalms the body so it cannot be autopsied.
So far, Judith fails to reveal the truth. But she obviously finds Live suspicious but cannot explain it or give a proof.
Odd and Rose are expecting a baby—which is a good news—but it will be a problem with Live around.
So there are still so many questions left unanswered from the first season ending, that hopefully will be addressed in Post Mortem: No One Dies in Skarnes season 2.
