The eight new episodes will be available for Netflix members to stream in the U.S., Canada, the U.K., Ireland, Latin America, Denmark and the Netherlands.
“’Lilyhammer’ is a funny and fantastic example of programming for a global audience — a comedic culture clash that’s drawn in viewers from around the world,” said Ted Sarandos, chief content officer at Netflix. “We’re especially proud of the many international awards the show has earned, cementing its cross-cultural appeal.”
In season three of “Lilyhammer,” 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 (Steven Van Zandt) 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 will make his directorial debut with the season three finale. The season will also feature Angelina Jordan, the 8-year-old singer who won “Norway’s Got Talent,” in her acting debut.
“Lilyhammer” was developed by Rubicon TV AS and created by Anne Bjørnstad & Eilif Skodvin. It is produced by Rubicon TV AS and co-produced by Netflix for NRK/Netflix in association with Red Arrow International, which also distributes. The series is executive produced by Pål Kruke Kristiansen, Anne Kolbjørnsen and Steven Van Zandt. Anders Tangen serves as producer.
