The current decade has seen a constant rise in Scandi noir tv shows, especially from Denmark and Sweden. We have received multiple crime dramas, most of them set in gloomy, small towns, which serve as the perfect backdrop to emphasize the prevailing grim mood. One such example is the Swedish thriller, ‘Rebecka Martinsson’, which follows the titular lawyer as she struggles with her personal issues while solving crimes in remote Kiruna. Praised for its spine-chilling mysteries, fantastic script and performances, and the beautiful yet menacing backgrounds of the Arctic, the binge-worthy series has spawned two incredible seasons to date. And here is all you need to know about its next edition.
Rebecka Martinsson Season 3 Release Date:
‘Rebecka Martinsson’ season 2 premiered on April 27, 2020, and ended with its eighth episode on May 28, 2020, in Sweden. The season was then picked up by Acorn to air for its audiences in the US and Canada. ‘Rebecka Martinsson’ season 2 released on July 27, 2020, on Acorn TV. Each season of the crime thriller contains a set of self-contained mysteries. In other words, we do not need a follow-up edition to wrap up any loose threads.
The decision to renew the show completely depends on audience response, which, so far, is great. Again, the drama is based on the best-selling Rebecka Martinsson novels by Åsa Larsson. Since the first two seasons cover only a part of her already-published books, there’s no dearth of content for a third tv version. As far as the release date is concerned, you should note that season 2 arrived almost three years after season 1’s conclusion. Hence, if the creators decide to commission another iteration, and the show sticks close to the aforementioned schedule, we can expect ‘Rebecka Martinsson’ season 3 to release sometime in 2022.
Rebecka Martinsson Season 3 Cast: Who Can be in it?
In season 2, the lead role of the eponymous tax attorney-turned-public prosecutor is played by Sascha Zacharias. The character was portrayed by Ida Engvoll in season 1. In the upcoming edition, we expect Sasha to reprise her original character. The third iteration should also see the return of other important stars like Thomas Oredsson, Eva Melander (Anna Maria Mella), Jakob Öhrman (Krister), Gunilla Röör, Ville Virtanen, Ardalan Esmaili, Samuel Fröler, and Jakob Hultcrantz Hansson.
Rebecka Martinsson Season 3 Plot: What Can it be About?
Season 2 is set several years after the events of season 1 when Rebecka is skeptical of her decision to stay back in Kiruna. The effective, unorthodox, and vigorous prosecutor is now introduced to four complicated cases — each spanning two episodes. A young man dies after a drug overdose, an old family feud turns violent, a 16-year-old cold case is reopened, and a woman and infant are discovered dead inside a car in a snowstorm.
Rebecka develops a close bond with her colleagues at the police station but is worried about her aging neighbor Sivving. Meanwhile, she also needs to get over her guilt regarding her parents’ premature deaths while deciding if she wishes to go back to Stockholm or not. Season 3 will feature a bunch of new cases from Åsa Larsson’s acclaimed books, all set in Kiruna while chronicling Rebecka’s journey toward self-discovery.
