Netflix orders Young Wallander series based on Swedish novel series
Kurt Wallander is returning to the small screen. Netflix just announced production has begun on their upcoming TV show, Young Wallander. The story focuses on the formative experiences — professional and personal — faced by Kurt as a recently graduated police officer in his early twenties. Someone who could carry the mantle previously worn by some of the most legendary actors of our time, honouring their brilliant past performances while also bringing in his own unique and contemporary take on this iconic role. Standing with an amazing cast, we have no doubt that together, they will take Wallander to new heights and enthral audiences all over again. The English-language drama series is told over six serialized episodes and is set in contemporary Sweden.
