Distributed by Eccho Rights, the new season of the female-led drama series will premiere on NENT Group’s streaming service in 2022.

Nordic Entertainment Group (NENT Group) will premiere a third season of its critically and commercially acclaimed female-led crime drama series Honour on its Viaplay streaming service in 2022.

Distributed by Eccho Rights, the series is one of the most-viewed Viaplay Originals so far.

It explores highly topical questions of inequality and injustice, and has already been sold in 60 territories worldwide with four remakes in development.

A terrorist act connected to the Incel (“involuntarily celibate”) subculture is the dramatic opener to the new season of Honour, in which the four partners of Stockholm law firm Heder (Honour) face unprecedented personal risks and ethical dilemmas. Their commitment to defending women’s rights and society’s most exploited people is stronger than ever – but can their ideals survive both today’s challenges and the secrets of the past?

Top Nordic creative talents Alexandra Rapaport (Gåsmamman), Eva Röse (Locked Down), Anja Lundqvist (Together) and Julia Dufvenius (Modus) return in their leading roles and as executive producers. The show is based on an idea by Sofia Helin (The Bridge) developed by Rapaport, Röse, Lundqvist and Dufvenius.

Alexandra Rapaport said: “I’m so proud and expectant ahead of our third season, which will be incredibly exciting. Our show clearly responds to a need and audiences have overwhelmed us with love, so we’ll do everything to live up to the trust we’ve received from Viaplay and the viewers and make a real kickass season.”

Filippa Wallestam, NENT Group Chief Content Officer, added: “What began as a personal project for some of Sweden’s leading actresses is now a Nordic and international success story that is more relevant than ever. ‘Honour’ is top-class entertainment and more – we’ve heard from viewers who have felt able to report harassment after seeing the show. Renewing for a third season feels both exciting and urgent.”

The third season of Honour (Swedish title: Heder) is directed by Joakim Eliasson (Gåsmamman) and produced by Bigster. Filming is set to start this autumn.

All seasons are distributed globally by Eccho Rights.
