The international comedy is originally from NRK1 (Norwegian Broadcasting Corporation’s main television channel). The series has proven itself to be a literal laughing riot, and has fans rooting for season 3’s release.

Creators Jon Iver Helgaker and Jonas Torgersen, spoke in an interview about their decision to make season 3 a prequel:

“We had plotted out most of the story beyond season two, but we could not let go of the urge to tell the story that led up to season one.”

2. Series overview

Norsemen is set in the small town of Norheim, Norway, circa AD 790. The not-so-functional setup of the period comedy hosts some of the most dysfunctional Vikings. The story covers their day-to-day life and conflict.

Season 1 and 2 dealt with their disputes with neighboring villages, with the rival tribe led by Jarl Varg. It also encapsulates Rufus the slave’s constant efforts to revamp the society’s culture to be a more sophisticated one.

Norsemen has seen power struggles, battles, and romances, to social commentary, the fight for gender equality, and the persistent question of advancing culture.

3. Cast

The series boasts of a talented ensemble cast that brings alive the hilarious world of Norheim.

Henrik Mestad stars as Chieftain Olav, Marian Saastad Ottesen as Hildur, Nils Jørgen Kaalstad as Arvid, Kåre Conradi as Orm, Trond Fausa Aurvåg as Rufus, Øystein Martinsen as Kark, Jon Øigarden as Jarl Varg, Kristine Riis as Liv and Bjørn Myrene as Torstein Hund.

The upcoming season will see new additions of Iben Akerlie, Per Christian Ellefsen, Thorbjørn Harr, Jakob Oftebro, Pia Tjelta and Amir Asgharnejad.

Although Silje Torp ‘s Frøya was killed last season, we expect her to reprise her role since the prequel suggests that she will be raiding and pillaging with the rest of the Vikings.

4. Official trailer

The official trailer has been released by Netflix and it is also available on YouTube.

The trailer gives the impression that the show will be very entertaining, much in tune with the other seasons. You can watch it here:

In January, 2020, the official Twitter page of Norsemen had also released a musical teaser announcing a third season.

5. Official poster

The first poster of Norsemen season 3 has two men looking very serious, as though they were ready for battle.

It’s false sense of seriousness lends to the comedic humor the series is so well known for.

6. Expected plot

Season 3 has been declared to be a prequel to the series. The latest season is set to chronicle the events that led up to the show’s first one. Official synopsis of Season 3 has not been made available as yet.

For Norwegian fans, Season 3 appeared earlier this year. If you don’t want any spoilers before it releases, you might not want to search for hashtags on social media and accidentally ruin it for yourself.

Hailed by most Norwegian media outlets as the best season yet, the latest one is based on the characters’ weaknesses and views on life. From subtle tongue-in-cheek humor through unproblematic comedy, this show really has it all.
