Norwegian political crime drama, Mammon, which features the adventures of journalist Peter Verås, has already completed two series of world-traversing series, and creator Gjermund Eriksen has assured us that a third series is on its way. Or at least he’d like there to be. And, to be honest, we’d like to see that too – Verås and co involved themselves in interesting stories that are a good watch. The next time, according to Eriksen, is to secure funding…
But first, Eriksen says this about series three:
We’d really like to follow a campaign with a new female prime minister. We are inspired by things that have happened in Norwegian election campaigns recently, but it will probably happen more exciting in this election than in real life.
So the story is roughly sketched out – or at least an idea is there – and now Eriksen and co have to drum up some funding, which on the face of it shouldn’t be a problem . It still performed well in its native Norway and with a new global TV landscape it was sold into other territories, including the UK. Website Scandilous quoted Eriksen as saying:
Whether there will be a new season of Mammon, it is for NRK to decide. It is not up to the writer to decide whether there will be another season or not. I have said that we are interested, so now it is up to NRK to make the decision. We’d really like to follow a campaign with a new female prime minister. We are inspired by things that have happened in Norwegian election campaigns recently, but it will probably happen more exciting in this election than in real life. We are only in the initial phase and taking plenty of notes. It’s about finding something that you are motivated to work with and that some people think is exciting. I envision a new season at the same place and in the same genre, but with a new story.
We’re keeping our fingers crossed here.
