Netflix announced today that its Original Danish comedy-drama series Baby Fever is returning for a second season.
In the first season of Baby Fever (Skruk), fertility doctor Nana (Josephine Park, Darkness: Those Who Kill) inseminates herself with the sperm of her ex-boyfriend, Mathias (Simon Sears, Ride Upon the Storm), while in a drunken state. Now pregnant, she wants to win him back, but he isn’t interested. (Trailer is from Season 1)
In Season 2, Nana is now mother to a two-month-old baby. For as much as she adores her child, Nana hates being on maternity leave, so she begs her old boss, Helle (Charlotte Munck, Rita), to give her back her job. Promising to mend her ways and do whatever it takes to become the world’s best fertility doctor again, Helle begrudgingly agrees. However, the one thing is Nana hasn’t given any thought to is who will care for her baby while she’s at work.
Reluctantly, Nana asks her mum to live in as a kind of permanent babysitter/roommate from hell. She doesn’t have any choice, really, because now, more than ever, she must excel at her job, since the new star doctor, Hampus, stepped into her shoes during her absence. To top it all off, Mathias is still lurking in the wings — the great love of her life who got away… who doesn’t know he’s father to Nana’s baby. More than ever before, Nana needs to lie while also needing to tell the truth…
The six-episode second season will launch globally on Netflix (date tba). Stay tuned for updates.
