Netflix announced today a new season of the award-winning Icelandic crime drama Trapped — a sequel season under the new title Entrapped but still starring Ólafur Darri Ólafsson (The Minister) and Ilmur Kristjánsdóttir (Trapped). Joining them is Danish actor Thomas Bo Larsen (Follow the Money).

As with the previous seasons, Entrapped is a character-driven crime drama whose roots are in the Nordic Noir genre and whose setting is in the breathtaking landscapes of Iceland.

Entrapped picks up two years after the finale of Trapped: Season 2, with the police duo of Andri (Ólafur Darri Ólafsson) and Hinrika (Ilmur Kristjánsdóttir) getting drawn into a war in the remote highlands, where two rival groups fight over specific pieces of land, but for very different reasons.

Oddur (Egill Ólafsson, The Court) is the founder and spiritual leader of the Extended Family, a neopagan and peaceful sect that has established a camp on the land, sees the land as sacred, and wants to be close to their heathen Gods.

Also laying claim to the sacred site is a group of Icelandic bikers led by an angry young man, Gunnar (Haraldur Stefánsson, A White, White Day). To take ownership of the land, Gunnar calls for backup, and soon a group of Danish bikers, led by Hopper (Thomas Bo Larsen), arrives by ferry.

The clash of the two groups leads to the death of a young man, Ivar (Auðunn Lúthersson, Auður – I’d Love). It turns out that the victim was known to Andri, so he feels obliged to join Hinrika in the North to investigate the murder case.

Created by the multiple award-winning producer-writer-director Baltasar Kormákur (Katla, Trapped, Jar City), Entrapped is written by Clive Bradley (Trapped), Rannveig Jónsdóttir (The Minister), Davíð Már Stefánsson (Katla), and Sigurjón Kjartansson (Cover Story). It is produced by RVK Studios and co-produced by RÚV, the Icelandic Broadcasting Service, and Germany’s ZDF.

Production of the series has commenced in Iceland.

Entrapped will launch on Netflix in 2021 (date tba). You can set a reminder for it now at www.netflix.com/entrapped.
