Amsterdam - The filming of brand new Norwegian Netflix Original Ragnarok has just begun in Odda, Norway. The cast includes David Stakston, Jonas Strand Gravli, Theresa Frostad Eggesbø, Herman Tømmeraas And Emma Bones. The series is created by award winning writer, Adam Price, and produced by SAM productions. Ragnarok will launch exclusively on Netflix in 2020.
Ragnarok is a coming-of-age drama building on and contributing to a new and surprising angle on Norse mythology. The series is set in the small, fictitious town of Edda, situated in the grand, breathtaking Norwegian nature. The story revolves around the inhabitants of Edda, who are perhaps not all who they claim to be. With them, we experience a drastically changing world: melting poles, warm winters, violent downpours. Some might say we’re headed for yet another Ragnarok. Unless someone intervenes in time...
The six part Norwegian language series is produced by SAM Productions, a Danish screenwriter-based production company. Adam Price functions as creator, writer and executive producer and is joined by the Norwegian co-executive producer and writer Simen Alsvik (Lilyhammer, Neste Sommer), executive producer Meta Louise Foldager Sørensen (Antichrist, Melancholia) and producer Stine Meldgaard Madsen (Pros and Cons, Something’s Rockin’).
The cast of Ragnarok also includes Henriette Steenstrup, Odd-Magnus Williamson, Synnøve Macody Lund, Line Verndal, Fridtjov Såheim, Bjørn Sundquist and Gísli Örn Garðarsson.
