The second season of the Norwegian political thriller Occupied is set to premiere on the Nordic streaming service Viaplay six months before it airs on TV2 in Norway. The release date is set for the fall of 2017.

Co-created and directed by Erik Skjoldbjærg, the series is about a nation under foreign occupation.

Occupied season two will be the second original production commissioned by Viaplay after Swedish Dicks, which is set to premiere this fall.

The first season of Occupied premiered on TV2 with nearly 700,000 viewers and has since screened in France and the UK.
