Netflix Renews Lilyhammer for a Third Season

While original series on Netflix such as Orange is the New Black and Arrested Development may get the lion’s share of the attention, Lilyhammer is chugging along and will now receive a third season.

Netflix announced today that it will be renewing the Steven Van Zandt series Lilyhammer for a third season. Only the first two seasons were guaranteed under the original agreement, so this marks the series first renewal.

The series follows the life of Frank “The Fixer” Tagliano (Van Zandt) after he enters the witness protection program and finds himself living in Norway, a place he had fallen in love with after seeing the Olympic Games hosted in Lillehammer. He quickly falls into old habits of his life of crime in his new home, and things become even more complicated when the mob figures out where he now lives.

“We are proud to bring back Lilyhammer for a third season,” said Ted Sarandos, chief content officer at Netflix. “Lilyhammer is the type of global show that Netflix members around the world have discovered and love and season three will see that world expand even more.”

The third season of Lilyhammer will debut some time in 2014.
