The complete third series of Lilyhammer will be available to Netflix customers in the U.K., Ireland, and selected countries from 21st November 2014.
In season three Roar (Steinar Sagen) travels to Brazil, to meet his Internet bride from a Rio favela. Blinded by love, he finds himself tangled up with the law, and it’s up to Frank and Torgeir (Trond Fausa) to make things right.
Assisted by the Norwegian Foreign Ministry, the collaboration between Frank and the foreign minister is anything but smooth.
And as if Frank doesn’t have enough challenges with his unruly bunch, a ghost resurfaces from the past – an American “family friend” who sees vast opportunities in Lillehammer for a man of his talents.
Van Zandt, who already wears multiple hats as an executive producer, writer, actor and composer on the series, will make his directorial debut with the season three finale.
Angelina Jordan, the 8-year-old singing sensation who won Norway’s Got Talent, makes her acting debut.
Lilyhammer was developed by Rubicon TV AS (creator, Anne Bjørnstad & Eilif Skodvin) and is produced by Rubicon TV AS and co-produced by Netflix for NRK/Netflix in association with Red Arrow International.
The show recently took home prizes for Best International Comedy Series and Best Actor in a Comedy for Van Zandt at the Monte Carlo TV Festival. The series also won the Gullruten for Best TV Drama in Norway and Best Actor for Trond Fausa.
