‘Lilyhammer’ is a Norwegian-American television series that was one of the earliest shows to be produced by Netflix.
Ever since season 3 of ‘Lilyhammer’ came to an end, fans have used various platforms like Reddit to demand season 4 of ‘Lilyhammer’. So, what are fans saying about ‘Lilyhammer’ Season 4 on Reddit? When is the Netflix ‘Lilyhammer’ Season 4 release date? Did fans like Maureen Van Zandt in ‘Lilyhammer’? Let’s take a look at all the latest updates about the show and figure out if 2020 will see the release of season 4 of ‘Lilyhammer’.
- All about the show
- The insanely fast pace of the show
- What to expect and who will be cast in ‘Lilyhammer’ Season 4
The show is based on a former New York gangster Frank who is trying to start a new life under witness protection from the FBI in an isolated town of Norway. The show’s name has a story behind it. In an attempt on Frank’s life, Tagliano’s dog Lily was killed.
- Is ‘Lilyhammer’ a true story?
The simple answer is no. ‘Lilyhammer’ is a Norwegian–American television series starring Steven Van Zandt about a former New York-based gangster named Frank “The Fixer” Tagliano trying to start a new life in isolated Lillehammer, Norway.
The insanely fast pace of the show
The show’s storyline is so fast-paced that it comes and goes at lightning speed which might be appealing to some and not appealing to others. The revelations and elevation of the show in just 2-3 episodes are so high that it might leave you wondering what the heck just happened!
Let’s watch it again. The show’s insanely unique plotlines and arcs stuffed into 3 seasons with just 8 episodes is a lot of things, but “not fun” isn’t one of them. Particularly, if you’re a fan of shows that don’t keep you waiting and give you a surprise even before you think of it. Then, this show is exactly for you, my friend. Just be sure to tuck your belts because believe me! It’s one hell of a ride. So when will the Netflix ‘Lilyhammer’ Season 4 release date be announced?

- Is ‘Lilyhammer’ a ‘Sopranos’ spin-off?
The lead actor of the show was also in ‘The Sopranos’, that’s why such questions are asked. But it is not a spinoff. Van Zandt isn’t depicting exactly the same character he played on “Sopranos”; HBO isn’t about to license a spinoff to an aspiring rival. The actor’s character is so similar to his “Sopranos” incarnation that it might as well be the same part.
The character of Frank couldn’t be bested by any other actor other than Steven Van Zandt himself. A character with zero vulnerability and no tolerance for nuisance. To be able to play such an intense character that can make you crack sometimes is sheer excellence.
With such a character and actor on board, it is unfair to stop the show with only 3 seasons. Fans deserve season 4 of ‘Lilyhammer’ and what better time to renew it than in 2020. Fans have already been raging about ‘Lilyhammer’ Season 4 on Reddit. Of course, we expect the cast of ‘Lilyhammer’ Season 4 to remain the same as before. After all, their stellar performances are a major reason why we are so hooked. We can only hope that the Netflix ‘Lilyhammer’ Season 4 release date is announced sooner than later.
What to expect?
‘Lilyhammer’ Season 4 on Netflix, in 2020, will be worth a watch (and we can only hope that Netflix takes the hint). Why so? Well, a lot of reasons. One, the show is one of the most interesting crime based dark-comedies that is out there. You can heck out the ‘Lilyhammer’ Season 4 on Reddit to be assured of this.
This comic drama wins over the heart of every viewer who loves a rush of adrenaline with a pinch of laughter every now and then. Fans can’t wait to hear that, “Lilyhammer is back again”. ‘Lilyhammer’ is going crazy on Reddit as well, with more and more people demanding a renewal of the show with season 4 and the same cast as well. Fans are particularly interested to see ‘Llilyhammer’s’ Maureen Van Zandt return as Angelina, the ex Tagliano.
Amidst all this uproar we can only hope that it is enough to reach the ears of the show-makers. With the pandemic scene getting worse as 2020 is progressing, this might just be a good opportunity to think of bringing the show back with season 4.
Why did ‘Lilyhammer’ get cancelled?
The entangled ownership and rights web and escalating costs ultimately led to the cancellation of ‘Lilyhammer’. ‘Lilyhammer’ ended its run on a high note — dominating the comedy section at the recent Monte Carlo TV Festival, winning Golden Nymph awards for best European series and best actor, Van Zandt.
