The first teaser trailer for the second season of Trapped has been released on RUV.

It depicts Andri and Hinrika from season one examining blood on cement. As with all teasers, it’s very cryptic.

Trapped season two sees Ólafur Darri Ólafsson reprise his role as Andri, the chief police inspector in a small, remote village. However, in season two he is back in Reykjavik working at his old job, when he is entrusted with a controversial and political case: an impoverished sheep farmer has set himself on fire in front of the capital’s government headquarters, trying to kill the Minister of Economic Affairs. Initial research leads Andri to a remote valley in the north of the island. The picturesque mountainous landscape turns out to be a place of bitter conflict: the local farmers are fighting against the interests of international business sharks, driving the expansion of a state-of-the-art geothermal centre.

Trapped is created by Baltasar Kormákur, who is also listed as a director for the second season. The series stars Ólafur Darri ÓlafssonIlmur Kristjánsdóttir and Ingvar Eggert Sigurðsson, all of which have been confirmed for the first episode of season two.

Trapped will be released in Iceland in autumn (fall) 2018.
