Raganrok is a Norwegian- language fantasy drama series inspired by Norse mythology from Netflix that premiered on 31 January 2020. It is Netlix's third Norwegian-language TV series, following Home for Christmas and Lilyhammer. The series is produced by the Danish production company SAM productions. The second season of the show was released on Netflix on May 27, 2021. A teaser trailer for the second season was revealed on May 10, 2021.
The show takes place in current day, in the fictional Norwegian town of Edda in Hordaland, Western Norway, which is plagued by climate change and the industrial pollution caused by the factories owned by the local Jutul family, the fifth-richest family in norway. The Jutulus are actually four Jotner posing as a family in Edda. They are challenged by Magne, a teenage boy who is surprised to learn that he is the embodiment of Thor and begins the fight against those who are destroying the planet. In the second season, he is joined by more people who embody other gods.
The series holds a rating of 7.5 on IMDb. It was not well received by some Norwegian media.
