- The first season of ‘Pørni’ set the first record for the original Norwegian movie Viaplay
- Creator and star of “Pørni”, Henriette Steenstrup, returns for seasons 2 and 3
- The NENT Group plans to release at least 40 original productions by 2021
Nordic Entertainment Group (NENT Group), the leading live broadcasting company in the Nordic region, has renewed the successful Norwegian comedy-drama series “Pørni” for the second and third seasons. The first season of ‘Pørni’, created by Henriette Steenstrup who also plays a major role, has received critical acclaim as one of the best Norwegian series in recent years. The series set a new record for the most successful premiere of Norwegian Viaplay Original when it launched on NENT Group’s live-streaming service Viaplay in early May.
“Classic”, “Pearl” and “Small Artwork” are just a few of the accolades that Pørni from the NENT group has received from Norwegian reviewers. The series’ two new seasons will complement the bittersweet story of Burnie (Henriette Steenstrup: ‘Ragnarok’; ‘Lilyhammer’; Dragon Award winner at the 2020 Gothenburg Film Festival for ‘The Children’), a single middle-aged parent who always put others in the first place. The first – although she wants more life for herself.
Henriette Steinstrup: “The reception has been incredibly good so far, and suddenly the idea of creating more Burnie is very scary, but of course very exciting as well. We have a lot of plans for the next two seasons.”
Philippa Walstam, Chief Content Officer, NENT Group: “Family life can sometimes feel like a permanent compromise, which can be one of the reasons why viewers have received ‘Burnie’ so well. The same makes the balance just right: Burney is comic, tragic, sometimes uncomfortable and above all glamorous. We’re investing in talent and making Viaplay the home of Henriette Steenstrup’s first special series, so it’s a pleasure to give Pørni two new seasons.
Season 2 of “Pørni” is currently filming in Oslo and will premiere exclusively on Viaplay in 2022. Returning actors from Season 1 include John Rance (“Out and Steal Horses”), Vivild Falk Berg, and Gunnar Eiriksson (“Twin ), Joanna Moore, Niels Ole Oftebro, and Charlotte Bloom (season 1 of ‘Burnie’) continue as directors. The series is produced by Monster.
