It is being reported that Netflix has renewed Young Wallander for a second season. The move comes two months after the European drama released its six-episode freshman run, which ultimately drew mixed reviews. Star Adam Palsson, who plays the titular character, took to Instagram with the good news.

Based on Henning Mankell's novels, this reimagining follows the growing experiences of Inspector Kurt Wallander as a police officer in his early 20s in modern-day Sweden. Fresh out of the police academy, Wallander witnesses a heinous crime and is pulled into investigating it under the wing of superintendent Hemberg.

Look for Season 2 of Young Wallander in 2022.
