The first season of the TV series Trapped, created by Baltasar Kormákur and produced by RVK Studios, was broadcast in Iceland in December 2015. The most expensive TV series in Icelandic history, Trapped follows detective Andri Ólafsson (portrayed by Ólafur Darri Ólafsson) as he works to solve the murder of a former townsman whose mutilated corpse is recovered by fishermen in a remote Icelandic town.
Following the success of the first season – broadcasting rights were purchased by networks across the world, including the BBC, and the series received favourable reviews – season two of Trapped premiered in Iceland in early 2019, with many recurring characters from season one.
While RVK Studios has announced that season three has been in the works since late 2018, the company has offered few updates; recently, however, Iceland Review spoke to a representative from RVK Studios who was willing to offer a few points regarding the much-anticipated third season:
1. The general storyline has already been mapped out.
2. Writers are currently working to finish the script.
3. RVK Studios hopes to start production later this year or the next (although nothing has been officially confirmed).
4. The company is determined to go ahead with the project and release season three in the near future.
