The first trailer for season two of ‘Trapped’ has been released

The first trailer for the second season of the hit Icelandic crime series Trapped has been released.

Judging from the trailer, the plot will revolve around the death of two people. Major topics in the second season will be foreign labour and heavy industry, as well as environmental protection of regions such as the highlands.

A major topic will be the power lines and the power stations in the highlands, and just how they affect the environment.

In an interview, director Baltasar Kormakur thanked Icelandic crime writer for joining the series and assisting with these topics: |It has been good to have Yrsu Sigurðardóttir, an experienced crime writer […] she gave us insight into various components regarding power stations and their impact on the environment. We utilise all the knowledge available to us. ”

We have been keeping an eye on the new season, from the early announcement that they’ll use more women behind the scenes, to just last week when they were filming scenes in Reykjavik. 

A teaser was released earlier this year. 

The first season of Trapped was a huge hit, with 1.2 million people watching it on BBC4 in the UK and 5.7 million watching in France.

Season two of Trapped will premiere on Iceland’s RUV this autumn. No international release date has been announced.
