Young Wallander is coming back for a second series.
The Netflix adaptation of Henning Mankell’s celebrated series of novels made its debut on the streaming platform and its expected the second run will debut in 2021.
Co-writer Chris Lunt took to Twitter to share the news.
Lunt – who wrote ITV’s Prey and Sky’s Devils – said: “Been a real joy to work on this throughout lockdown. Almost kept us sane. Coming to Netflix worldwide in 2021, season 1 available now.”
It’s expected Adam Pålsson will return as the young detective, but there’s no more word on casting yet.
Series one saw Mankell’s characters transposed to modern-day Malmö and much younger, investigating a brutal murder on the housing estate he lives in.
