The second season of Jordskott has started in Stockholm and is set to go for just under four months.

The series has been commissioned by SVT, with the second season to be produced by Palladium Fiction.

In season two, we are two years after the first season. The main character, police investigator Eva Törnblad [Moa Gammel] has moved on and pushed away all the bad things that happened to her in the first season. She tries to stay in urban areas, away from the forest of Silverhöjd, but of course, things catch up with her and she’s drawn back to the mysterious forest where her daughter disappeared almost a decade earlier.

Creator Henrik Björn is back as main writer and concept director. Episodic directors are Daniel DiGrado (Farang) and Jakob Ström (Torpederna). The writing team comprises Aron Levander, Lovisa Milles, Filip Hammarström, and Tatjana Andersson. The SEK 64m (€6.7M) show is produced by Palladium’s Filip Hammarström, in co-production with SVT, ITV Studios in the UK, Europa Sound, Stockholm Mälardalen Film region, in cooperation with Film Capital Stockholm and Gotland Film Fund. ITV Studios handles world sales.

Jordskott was sold to 50 territories and was particularly successful in France (Arte) and in the UK (ITV Encore). The premiere is due on SVT in the autumn of 2017.
