Viaplay has commissioned a third and final season of its acclaimed Danish psychological crime drama "Face to Face." “‘Face to Face’ strips Nordic noir down to the essentials – suspense, psychology and style," Filippa Wallestam, NENT Group Chief Content Officer, said. "In doing so, it gives a platform for unforgettable performances and cinematography, and reimagines the entire genre’s possibilities. We can’t wait to bring this final season to audiences and critics alike.”
The title, created and directed by Christoffer Boe and produced by Miso Film, and the new season will premiere exclusively on Viaplay later this year. The eight-episode series is written by Christoffer Boe and Lasse Kyed Rasmussen, and produced by Jonas Allen and Peter Bose for Miso Film and executive produced by Marlene Billie Andreasen for Viaplay. ‘Face to Face’ is distributed internationally by Fremantle.
Filming has recently started in Copenhagen, and season three will once again feature an all-star Nordic cast, with additional talents to be announced soon. Seasons one and two received eight nominations at the Danish Film Awards. “Holger Lang is both fascinating and frightening – perfect for a series about murder. When we first met him in season one, he was a potential killer, but this season he will take us all the way to the secrets behind Christina’s death," Christoffer Boe said. "It’s fantastic to be able to close this story with Lars Mikkelsen in the lead.”
In "Face to Face," the web of suspects in the murder of Christina Rasmussen stretches from Copenhagen’s underworld to the highest echelons of business and the police. Now, tycoon Holger Lang, who had named Christina his heir, receives a video revealing that she was killed by a contract assassin. Consumed by fury, Lang confronts his colleagues, friends and enemies in a desperate bid to uncover the truth once and for all.
