The news comes ten months after Netflix announced the then-untitled series as its next Norwegian Original. Now called Post Mortem: No One Dies in Skarnes, the show is a vampire drama-comedy directed by Amanda Awards-winning director Harald Zwart (The Karate Kid, The Pink Panther 2, Hamilton) and up-and-coming writer-director Petter Holmsen (Oljefondet), who wrote the series.

The story begins when Live Hallangen is declared dead. Hours later, she suddenly wakes up on the forensic table — with an insatiable hunger for blood. Meanwhile, her brother Odd is trying to keep the family-run funeral home afloat, but the stagnant death rate in the small Norwegian town of Skarnes is making it impossible. As Live’s bloodthirst keeps intensifying, she realizes her newfound urge can actually solve Odd’s problem. Now she must learn to control her new dangerous nature and decide if she is willing to sacrifice people’s lives for her own survival — and the survival of the family business.

The cast includes Kathrine Thorborg Johansen (Home Ground) as Live, Elias Holmen Sørensen (Struggle for Life) as Odd, Andrée Sørum (Home Ground) as Reinert, Kim Fairchild (Things We Do for Love) as Judith, Sarah Khorami (Occupied) as Rose, and Terje Strømdahl (Mammon) as Arvid.

A production of Motion Blur, the six-episode series is produced by Espen Horn, Hege Skjerven Clausen, and Kristian Strand Sinkerud.

Post Mortem: No One Dies in Skarnes premieres globally on August 25, exclusively on Netflix. (You can set a reminder for it now at www.netflix.com/postmortem.)
