A third season of the hit Icelandic crime series ‘Trapped’ has been announced

Iceland’s hit Trapped is just about to release its second season locally, but at the same time it has been confirmed that our favourite crime series will return for a third season. 

Baltasar Kormakur has stated in a recent interview that planning is underway for season three:

“We have started writing the framework for the third season. We haven’t gotten farther than that. We want to be able to release the third series earlier than the second, if it goes as well as it looks like with the second series, so there isn’t such a long time between series. There’s still a huge story left in these characters”

Season two will be released on the Icelandic public broadcaster RUV on the 26th of December. No international release date has been announced, but the second season has been sold to the United Kingdom, Germany, France, Australia, Scandinavia, plus numerous other countries. 

The story for season two has expanded beyond the small setting of season one. The plot revolves around an attack on an Icelandic government minister. Police officer Andri Olafsson (played by Olafur Darri Olafsson) returns for season two, but it has not been announced if he will be back for a third season. 

You can watch an Icelandic trailer for season two below.
