Ragnarok is the Norweigian Netflix series following the life of Magne Seier, a teenager who just moved into the Norweigian town of Edda with his family and is also the embodiment of the most famous Norse God, Thor.
Ragnarok became the second original Netflix series produced in the Norweigian language following the December 2019 release Home for Christmas.
The show has a 7.5 rating on the IMDb and an 84% average audience score on rotten tomatoes. Due to the largely positive reviews from both critics and international audiences, the renewal Ragnarok Season 2, came just a month after the first season premiere.
Ragnarok Season 2 Release:
Netflix confirmed the continuation of the show on March 4, 2020, and the production of the show is ongoing ( https://twitter.com/nxonnetflix/status/1301173042400370695 ).
We can expect the release of the new season by the middle of 2021.
Ragnarok Season 2 Cast:
The lead character, Magne Seier, will be continued to be played by David Staunton. Other notable actors such as Jonas Strand Gravli, Herman Tømmeraas, Theresa Frostad Eggesbø, Synnøve Macody Lund can be seen in the next season as well.
Ragnarok Season 2 Plot:
In the first season, we saw Magne wield the powers of Thor. Then we see that the Jutul family, the people who are responsible for the majority of environmental pollution, is actually a family of Jötunn (giant).
[ The scene where Magne discovers the fact that the Jutul family is more the human is pretty epic! You can rewatch it here- https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=7H9AaiBLHCo ]
In the last episode of the season, we see Magne channel the strongest powers of Thor which potentially kills Vidar. We can expect Magneto to do more incredible stunts.
With Fjor trying to murder Gry, I think its safe to say that the romance between them is over. The next season will feature the pairing of her with Magne, a ship much anticipated by the fans.
Season 1 also revealed that Magne’s mother was once really close to Vidar Jul. We can surely expect their flashback in the second season.
It is also speculated that Magne’s brother Laurits is actually Loki, the God of Mischief. We can see him enjoy the same music as the Jutuls and dance with them at the party.
It can be promised that the next season will bring much more Norse Mythology goodness spiced with more interesting character development and backstories.
But at the end of the day, let’s not forget that the main theme of the story revolves around climate change and the fast approach of the next mass cataclysm accelerated by the anthropogenic invasion also known as Ragnarok in the Norse Mythology.
That’s all for today! Stay with us for the latest updates on the second season of Ragnarok!
