Sources reveal that Young Wallander will return for a second season in 2022. The mixed reviews of the program did not deter the creators from launching a second season. Here’s the most up-to-date information about Season 2 of Young Wallander.
A few months after its premiere, the creators renewed the program in November 2020. You would have assumed that, given the show’s speedy renewal, we’d see the second season in 2021 (Deadline even claimed that), but that isn’t the case.
Young Wallander was a smash hit in Sweden, where it spent 35 days in the top ten charts. It did succeed in other Nordic nations as well. The series only lasted three days in the top ten in the United States, while it lasted eight days in the United Kingdom.
Wallander left the Malmö police department at the end of the first season. He became disillusioned when the affluent killer Karl-Axel Munck (Jacob Collins-Levy) walked free owing to his family reputation and costly attorneys.
Where Wallander will appear next is still a mystery. He is a police inspector in Ystad, although it would be weird for him to leave one police post after season 1 and take another at the start of season 2. So, will the train carry him straight to Ystad, or will there be some stops along the way? Is this a private investigation? A case that takes on its own course. Even the abundance of the source material is unlikely to be of much use.
What’s new in this?
Young Wallander is not following in the footsteps of the BBC’s Sherlock. In its early seasons, many believed that it was a current drama based on the Arthur Conan Doyle source material. Because it is an actual prequel, the novels can only tell us where he’ll finish up. It is safe to assume that there will be a crime to look into someplace. The first mystery of Season 2 is what it will be.
Adam Pålsson said that a new chief would lead the major crimes section. He will be the one to bring Kurt Wallander back into the fold.
In season 2, Wallander agrees to return. He gets the responsibility of researching a simple viral outbreak outside of a popular nightclub.
Season 2 will include six episodes once again. There are no runtimes yet, but we know which episodes Jens Jonsson and Mani Maserrat will direct. Adam Palsson and Yasen Atour, who portray Kurt Wallander and Reza Al-Rahman, respectively in the series, confirmed their participation in Season 2
For Young Wallander season 2, BBC announced adding several new cast members.
In season 2, Tomiwa Edun will play Samuel Osei. Edun played various parts during his career, including Eddie in Netflix’s What Happened to Monday. In addition, he appeared in Doctor Who, Cinderella, and Merlin. As previously stated, Samuel will be the new boss, taking over the command of the major crimes unit.
Then there’s Lisa Hammond, who will portray Roberta Modin in the upcoming season. Hammond has been in shows such as EastEnders and Vera.
The series will return in 2022, but that’s all we know this far. The production is complete, and we may anticipate it in the first part of this year.
