Streaming TV service Netflix says it will premiere the second season of Lilyhammer on Friday 13th December.
The first series originally ran in the UK on BBC Four in early 2012.
Lilyhammer stars Stevie Van Zandt (The Sopranos) as New York mobster Frank ‘The Fixer’ Tagliano who is forced into the Witness Protection Programme after testifying against his Mafia boss.
Tagliano demands that he be sent to the sleepy Norwegian town Lillehammer, which he fell in love with while watching the 1994 Winter Olympic Games.
Thrust into a town that has little crime but a very colourful group of inhabitants, he has to confront a totally alien lifestyle. “The second season of ‘Lilyhammer’ is an amped up ride that gives us Steven Van Zandt at his glorious, baddest, best,” said Ted Sarandos, chief content officer at Netflix.
“Whether you enjoyed season one or are catching it for the first time, ‘Lilyhammer’ is a mob show like no other.”
