The highly-anticipated second season of Ragnarok, its second Original series from Norway, premieres globally on May 27, 2021, exclusively on Netflix.

In Season 1 (which is fabulous), high school student Magne (David Stakston, Skam) has moved with his brother Laurits (Jonas Strand Gravli, Wisting) and mother Turid (Henriette Steenstrup, Lilyhammer) back to their hometown of Edda, a small (fictitious) town in western Norway. The residents of Edda have been experiencing much warmer winters, more violent downpours, and other effects of climate change, and since being back here, Magne has started to experience strange things himself. Namely, superhuman strength and speed and seeming indestructibility.

The wealthy Jutul family are also more than what they appear to be on the surface, and they too have powers — some commonplace, some extraordinary — including the power of destruction. After Magne learns more about them following a tragic death, he and the Jutuls become enemies.

Here’s the trailer for Season 1, which you can catch up on at www.netflix.com/ragnarok.

The six-part Season 2 picks up where Season 1 leaves off — with conflict getting tougher, evil getting more focused, and choices getting more desperate.

Having just discovered who he really is, and that he is up against an ancient and extremely powerful enemy that is holding Edda, perhaps even the whole of Norway, in its grip, Magne must now accept that he is ready for battle and that his enemies are too many and too strong.

Are there any other people around who, like him, have supernatural powers? If there is, will he be able to find them in time? As it turns out, his younger brother, Laurits, is also quite exceptional, but he views the world very differently from Magne…

Returning cast members include Danu Sunth (To Nowhere) as Iman, Theresa Frostad Eggesbø (Skam) as Saxa, Herman Tømmeraas (Semester) as Fjor, Emma Bones (Home Ground) as Gry, Odd-Magnus Williamson (Aber Bergen) as Erik, Synnøve Macody Lund (Black Widows) as Ran, Bjørn Sundquist (Monster) as Wotan, and Gísli Örn Garðarsson (Cover Story) as Vidar.

Joining the Season 2 cast are Vebjørn Enger (Twin) as Jens, Benjamin Helstad (Borderliner) as Harry, Billie Barker (Apocalypse Norway) as Signy, Jesper Malm (Rebecka Martinsson) as Odd Moland, and Espen Sigurdsen (Abnormal Attraction) as Halvor Lange.

Ragnarok: Season 2, a project of SAM Productions, is created and written by Adam Price (Borgen) and Emilie Lebech Kaae (Pros and Cons), executive produced by Meta Louise Foldager Sørensen (The Chestnut Man), produced by Stine Meldgaard Madsen (Something’s Rockin’), and directed by Mogens Hagedorn (Rita).
