The Chestnut Man Season 2 Release Date: Cancelled or Renewed?
The Chestnut Man Season 2 is a psychological thriller based on Sren Sveistrup's debut novel, The Killing, according to The Daily Mail. A figure fashioned of chestnuts sits at a horrible murder scene, according to the Netflix series description. Two detectives use this eerie hint to track down a murderer tied to a politician's missing child. The six-part series follows detectives Naia Thulin (Danica Curcic) and Mark Hess (Mikkel Boe Flsgaard) as they search for a sadistic serial killer who amputates and kills young, careless moms while leaving handcrafted chestnut dolls at each crime site.
The Chestnut Man Season 2 is part of Netflix's Nordic output, and the scary Danish Nordic Noir series is a wonderful illustration of its genre. The programme features terrifying dolls, missing limbs, and intriguing homicide investigations galore, and the entire thing is made even more unsettling by the show's frequent replacement of the genre's normal, gloomy tones with an almost uncomfortably gorgeous backdrop of vibrant fall colors.
Season 1 of “The Chestnut Man” begins by introducing us to two alluring Copenhagen cops, talented desk job want tobe Naia Thulin (Danica Curcic) and tormented Mark Hess (Mikkel Boe Flsgaard), who are paired to investigate a fairly complex serial killer case involving high-ranking politician Rosa Hartung (Iben Dorner) and her long-lost daughter. Fans of excellent murder mysteries have most certainly finished the program or added it to their Netflix queue, so it's natural to question if there will be any more episodes. Let's check what we know about “The Chestnut Man” Season 2's situation.
Release Date of the Chestnut Man Season 1
Season 1 of “The Chestnut Man” launched on September 29, and Netflix, naturally, did not renew a foreign-language crime program before seeing how the first season fared. That's why there's no word on when the second season will air, or even if there will be one at all.
That said, there can never be too many Nordic Noir crime programmes with strong female leads, and sources like Forbes are already comparing “The Chestnut Man” to “The Killing,” which is perhaps the genre's gold standard.
Because series like these aren't prohibitively costly to produce, and “The Chestnut Man” is definitely gaining acclaim, there's no reason why the streamer wouldn't order another season of intriguing Danish murder investigations, at least if the first one goes well enough. Assuming that “The Chestnut Man” Season 2 is approved, the production cycle of a police procedural typically takes a year, give or take — therefore the second season would most likely broadcast in late 2022, or perhaps early 2023.
Cast of the Film
“The Chestnut Man” Season 2, if it happens, would most likely shuffle the cast quite a bit, simply because the titular case is pretty well solved, and it's difficult to find a way for the case's survivors to re-enter the fight. As a result, anticipate a fresh case with new suspects – and new actors who play them.
There will almost certainly be some familiar faces. The policemen who examined the Chestnut Man incident will very certainly be the focus of future seasons as well. As Naia Thulin and Mark Hess are ordered to uncover the next criminal terrorizing Copenhagen, Danica Curcic and Mikkel Boe Flsgaard are quite far away the most probable actors to return. Other police officers may also make an appearance.
Unfortunately, the Chestnut Man himself is unlikely to return for Season 2 of “The Chestnut Man.” Simon Genz, alias Toke Bering, is a complicated and dangerous monster, and David Dencic does an excellent job of portraying him. The character, however, does not survive Season 1. Rosa Hartung (Iben Dorner) may well have departed the program due to her personal relationship to the murderer.
Plot of the Show
With the Chestnut Man case being closed, The Chestnut Man Season 2 will almost certainly center on an entirely new criminal investigation. Even if the program stays on similar terrain and focuses on a new case related to the Chestnut Man, odds are it'll be different enough to keep things interesting. Maybe something to do with Linus Bekker (Elliott Crosset Howe), the deranged guy wrongfully imprisoned for some of Simon's crimes?
There's no knowing where a sophomore season of “The Chestnut Man” will go until word of a new season and its prospective idea arrives, though it's probably safe to predict that the program won't veer far from the first season's incredibly successful serial murder mystery framework. It's also a very safe bet that a second season will focus on Thulin and Hess' blossoming romance, which was all but established in season 1.
Our Take on the Movie
The first season's grisly serial murderer thriller includes a convoluted plot with several red herrings. We appreciate that it features a strong female heroine, and we're hoping to see more of that in the future season. Since the cast of the first season was finally solved, the second season may have a whole new inquiry to investigate. It's also possible that a second season may focus on Thulin and Hess' blossoming romance, which was all but established in season 1.
The program has received a lot of positive feedback from reviewers and fans, with some even calling it “one of the finest series of the year.” Sren, a Danish writer, was inspired by the “scary” song that children sing when making chestnut dolls as part of a Danish yearly custom. “I arrived to pick up my youngest in kindergarten one Autumn day a few years ago and witnessed the kids building chestnut men while singing a children's song: ‘Chestnut man, do come in, Chestnut man, do come in,'” Sren remarked. “Even though the context was so harmless, the offer seemed strange to me.” Or perhaps it was because the context was so benign.
