Ooh, I just got goosebumps from watching the teaser for the second season of Home for Christmas, which arrives in less than a month. Yippee!
The Norwegian comedy-drama Home for Christmas was one of my favorite new series of 2019. Season 1 follows Johanne (Ida Elise Broch, Shetland, Lilyhammer), a single, 30-year-old woman who, tired of being the only one amongst her family and friends without a partner, sets out to find a boyfriend in the 24 days before Christmas. By turns hilarious and deeply moving, it’s like a “Searching for Love Actually” that left me in stitches and in tears.
But the final scene — a cliffhanger (!) — totally toyed with viewers’ emotions, so I and every other fan of the show have been waiting for a year to find out who made her smile that smile.
There’s more to the new season than that, of course. Set during another December, it follows Johanne as she continues her pursuit of eternal, warm, and real love. But when her family and the world around her fall apart, will she still believe in true and everlasting love? And if it even exists, will she find the one for her this Christmas?
Returning cast members include Dennis Storhøi (The River), Anette Hoff (Maniac), Gabrielle Leithaug, Oddgeir Thune (Occupied), Felix Sandman (Quicksand), and Stian Blipp (Side om side). Joining the cast are Edward Schultheiss (Lilyhammer), Hermann Sabado (Mammon), and Dagny Norvoll Sandvik (Origin of Man).
Home for Christmas: Season 2, a Netflix Original series, premieres globally on Friday, December 18, exclusively on Netflix. The three hours of Season 1 are worth bingeing, so head to www.netflix.com/HomeforChristmas to catch up on the show (or to re-watch it).
