As a stand-alone season, Borgen: Power & Glory has been released by Netflix in Nordic territories, with the rest of the world receiving the series in June 2022. Here’s what we know so far about the forthcoming season and when you can expect to see it on the TV near you.
Adam Price’s Borgen premiered in Denmark in 2010 and has since become a worldwide phenomenon. After three seasons, the show came to an end in 2013, and it appeared as though it would be the last for the show.
The show was on hiatus until Netflix spotted a resurgence chance.
The upcoming fourth season of the critically acclaimed political thriller was first announced as a joint venture between DR and Netflix back in April of this year.
Seasons 1-3 of the political thriller were made available worldwide by Netflix in September 2020.
Is there a Netflix release date for Borgen Season 4?
The debut date for the next season of Borgen has been set for sometime in 2022, according to the announcement of the series’ comeback.
According to a Times Radio host in January 2022, Netflix around the world will have Borgen Season 4 sometime in Spring 2022.
We now know that the show will be released on Netflix in two parts, one for different regions.
On April 14, 2022, Netflix in the Nordic countries will begin streaming the series. Sweden, Denmark, Norway, Finland, and Iceland are included in this group.
On June 2nd, 2022, the rest of the globe will be able to watch the series.
For those of you who don’t know, the series is a Netflix Original in every other country except Denmark. This is because the series ran from February to April 2022 on DR1.
Netflix refers to this season as a “stand-alone continuation of the prior seasons,” which is worth mentioning. Like Top Boy, where the early seasons of the show had to be canceled.
Who are the Borgen Season 4 cast members who will be making a comeback?
As many of the original cast members return to reprise their roles from the original run of the series as possible:
Sidse Babett Knudsen, the series’ lead actress, has this to say about the continuation:
For the first time in years, we’re getting back to Borgen. As a result of my anticipation, I feel like I’m going to burst. There are so many new faces on both sides of the camera (and the desks) and familiar faces from previous seasons that I can’t wait to meet them all.
However, I have great expectations for this project, so be careful what you say. In addition, I’m eager to get back into my old home, Birgitte Nyborg. How wonderful it is to be able to take a spin on the carousel once more with this wonderful character.
Who has joined Borgen’s cast as the new members?
Borgen’s new season will feature a slew of new cast members, including:
Mikkel Boe Flsgaard was overjoyed to be a part of the upcoming season and shared his excitement with Netflix:
I spent a few months in England maybe five or six years ago. When I informed people in the United States that I was Danish, the first thing they said was Borgen, not Michael Laudrup, Queen Margrethe, or Aqua. It had been witnessed by everybody.
Everybody was eager to talk about it. It was universally lauded. Looking forward to working on the show and becoming a part of Borgen’s world. To carry on the tradition of one of Denmark’s most popular television shows, a series that has laid the groundwork for decades of success for Danish television, and which all of us in the industry now stand on the shoulders of, is an honor and a privilege.
In season 4, Morgens Hagedorn (Ragnarok) and Per Fly (The Bench) will direct episodes. Cinematographer Henrik Kristensen has joined the project.
Are there any surprises in store for us in the new season of Borgen?
The series will continue to center on Birgitte Nyborg and her team, who are now serving as the country’s Minister of Foreign Affairs.
Katrine Fnsmark, formerly of Brigette’s press department, is currently in charge of a significant division at a national television station.
Netflix has published the following summary of the upcoming season:
There are several political themes that are addressed in the series, including the Danish Realm’s current relevance in the modern world, as well as a war between the superpowers for dominance of the Arctic. This book is primarily on power struggles and the effects that power has on people’s lives, both professionally and personally.
