A UK remake of ‘Valkyrien’ has been confirmed

A British remake of the Norwegian drama series Valkyrien has been confirmed, with Sky commissioning an eight-part adaptation, C21 Media reports.

The original series was released on NRK last year, and follows a doctor who runs an illegal clinic in an old bomb shelter underground. He treats criminals, emergency patients, and others who can’t or won’t seek medical help in a regular hospital. The series stars Sven Nordin and Pål Sverre Hagen. 

The remake will be called Temple and will be set in a secret world beneath London where an illegal clinic has been set up in an abandoned network of tunnels. 

The remake will see a cast led by Mark Strong alongside Carice van Houten and Daniel Mays. Luke Snellin will direct. The UK version will be co-funded and distributed internationally by Sky Vision and will air on Sky1 and the streaming service Now TV in the UK and Ireland next year.

What do you think of the plans for a remake?
