NBC Renews Amy and Greg Poehler’s ‘Welcome to Sweden’

NBC has given a 10-episode, second-season order to “Welcome to Sweden,” the comedy created by Greg Poehler based on his life as a fish-out-of-water American living in Mother Svea.

Poehler, who was named one of Variety’s 10 comics to watch and who is the younger brother of “Parks and Recreation’s” Amy Poehler, stars in the show along with Josephine Bornebusch, Lena Olin, Claes Mansson, Christopher Wagelin and Per Svensson.

“Sweden” received OK ratings when it premiered in July, with Variety TV critic Brian Lowry calling it “cute” in the best sense of the word.

Exec producers of the Entertainment One Television, TV4, FLX and Syskon show are the Poehler siblings, Pontus Edgren, Carrie Stein, Frederik Arefalk and Felix Herngren.
