Surprisingly fans were intrigued by the first season of ‘Beartown’ and if you’re wondering about season 2 of ‘Beartown’, we’ve got you covered.
Beartown is a Swedish suspense series based on Fredrik Backman’s eponymous book. The story is a unique take on Scandinavian noir because it portrays human stupidity rather than just the crime. The plot revolves around a group in Sweden that wants to revive its hopes by betting on the hockey team. Surprisingly, the whole town is engrossed in the team’s activities, almost to the point of mania.

Peter Andersson accepts the team’s coach position, and he faces the difficult task of exceeding high expectations. However, a crime threatens to stymie progress and possibly destroy the town’s essence. The series is an engrossing look at family trauma, romance, and deception webs.
When is season 2 of ‘Beartown’ releasing?
Season 1 of ‘Beartown’ premiered on HBO and its streaming platform, HBO Max, on February 22, 2021. After five episodes with an average runtime of 55 minutes, it ended on March 22, 2021. The series, which was originally titled ‘Bjornstad’, premiered internationally on October 18, 2020, and ran until November 8, 2020. The show was praised by critics and audiences alike, particularly for its layered storytelling and outstanding performances.
The network has yet to make an official announcement about the renewal of the show for a second season. However, the possibility of a second season doesn’t seem bleak. Director Peter Grönlund has also expressed an interest in working on projects that explore social strata and go deep into the minds of the characters.
As a result, we can hope that if season 2 production begins in a writer’s room by the summer of 2021, shooting will begin shortly after. However, the pandemic’s constraints must be considered. Taking everything into account, we can anticipate the release of ‘Beartown’ Season 2 in 2022.
‘Beartown’ Season 2: Cast
In the first season of ‘Beartown’, Ulf Stenberg plays Peter Andersson, the hockey team’s coach. If the story is continued, we can anticipate him reprising his part. Maya Andersson is played by Miriam Ingrid, Mats Erdahl is played by Tobias Zilliacus, and Mira is played by Aliette Opheim. Oliver Dufaker may also return to play Kevin Erdahl, the team’s young star. If new characters are added in the second season, we can expect to see some new faces in addition to the returning cast.
‘Beartown’ Season 2: What to expect?
Towards the end of season 1, Kevin and Maya make their statements to the authorities, and the team is forced to compete in the final without their star player. Due to the allegations, the town is on the verge of imploding, and Maya has reached a point of no return due to the increasingly hostile behaviour. Despite Amat’s testimony, the police do not charge Kevin because there is insufficient evidence. Maya confronts Kevin in the finale as justice awaits the truth.
If the show is renewed, the second season could focus on Maya and Kevin’s characters as they reveal the toxic rape culture that has infiltrated the sports world. The series will most likely maintain the ethos of its predecessors by delving into the history of ‘Beartown’. Because the show is based on a novel, the next season may follow the plot of the novel’s sequel, ‘Us Against You’. Essentially, if the new season arrives, we will be able to delve into the character dynamics.
While you wait for ‘Beartown’ to be renewed for another season let us know in the comments below, what you are looking forward to in season 2 of the show.
