Second season of ‘Trapped’ underway

The second season of Trapped (Ófærð) has started, Iceland Monitor reports.

Baltasar Kormákur, the creator of the series, will start the second season once he returns from Fiji. He is currently directing the Hollywood movie Adrift, which stars Shailene Woodley and Miles Teller as a young couple who get trapped in the eye of a hurricane while out in the water. 

Trapped takes place in a small Icelandic village, and in the first season, a dismembered body was discovered as a ferry full of tourist arrived in the village.

When asked about the second season, Kormákur said that the village won’t be trapped by snow, but rather something else.

Trapped season two will be filmed in Siglufjörður and Reykjavik. It will feature the same police team, played by Ólafur Darri Ólafsson, Ilmur Kristjánsdóttir and Ingvar Sigurðsson.
