Season two of ‘Trapped’ films in downtown Reykjavik

The second season of the Icelandic crime series Trapped has begun filming in downtown Reykjavik, icelandmag.is reports.

The series has been shooting out in the Siglufjörður village in North Iceland, but has now moved into downtown Reykjavik before moving to the Reykjanes peninsula and then the central highlands.

Season one premiered in 2016, where it became an instant hit around the world. The series was based on the premise of the police trying to solve a crime in a remote town in Iceland, which has been cut off from the rest of the country after a powerful storm sweeps through.

The second season will involve a death on Austurvöllur square, which sits just outside the Parliament building. The second season will involve political intrigue, corruption and will focus on the current political climate in Iceland.

Earlier this week the film crew was shooting at Austurvöllur square in front of Parliament.

The first teaser has already been released for season two, which you can watch here.
