From the name and even parts of the poster and trailer, people might not realize that Norsemen is a comedy series with a pretty intense plot. However, the fans were pretty disappointed when the creators confirmed that Norsemen has been canceled and is not returning for a fourth season.
To give you a bit of a background if you haven’t watched the show, Norsemen follows the lives of Vikings who live in a small village in Norheim in the 790s. Although the show deals with Vikings and wars, the plot is filled with comedic twists and humor that make the show an interesting watch.
If you have been wondering about Norsemen Season 4, its release date, and potential plot and cast, we will explore them all in this article.
When is Norsemen Season 4 Releasing?
Norsemen has three successful seasons under its belt. The show was initially released on NRK1, which is a Norwegian network. It was simultaneously released on Netflix in English to appeal to a more global audience.
However, even after three successful seasons, Norsemen was canceled by NRK1 and Netflix for a fourth season. While the fans were expecting news about the show’s renewal, the creators Jon Iver Helgaker and Jonas Torgersen took to their Instagram accounts to break the news of the cancellation in September 2020.
Although not much has been said about the cancellation, reports do suggest that the high production costs and low viewership could have been the reason why they canceled the show after three seasons.
What can we expect from Norsemen Season 4?
As we mentioned, Norsemen Season 4 isn’t happening. The creators have cancelled the show and the network has dropped it too.
This means that if you were expecting a release eventually, it is most likely not happening anytime in the future.
If Norsemen had been renewed for a fourth season, the show would likely have continued to explore the lives of the Vikings of Norheim in a humorous and satirical way. The show’s creators have said that they were interested in exploring the Vikings’ relationship with the Romans and the Christian faith in a future season.
There could have been several ways the creators could have extrapolated the plot but it looks like the same isn’t going to happen with the cancellation.
Who is returning to Norsemen Season 4?
If Norsemen had been renewed for a fourth season, the entire main cast would likely have returned, including:
- Kåre Conradi as Orm
- Henrik Mestad as Arvid
- Nils Jørgen Kaalstad as Rufus
- Marian Saastad Ottesen as Frøya
- Silje Torp as Liv
- Jon Øigarden as Jarl Varg
- Øystein Martinsen as Åse Trond
- Fausa Aurvåg as Kåre
Norsemen Season 4 built up a lot of anticipation among the fans and while the cancellation has come around like a disappointment, you can’t deny the fact that the first three seasons make up for it. You can binge-watch the first three and get your daily dose of humor from it.
