Netflix has announced the release of two new Swedish programmes in 2023 and 2024. Continue reading for more information on each new series:
Barracuda Queens is an upper-class lady gang heist series based on true occurrences. The Barracuda Queens are a group of disillusioned adolescent girls who, bored with their privileged existence in Stockholm’s affluent suburb Djursholm, become involved in an expanding spree of house burglaries targeting their gullible rich neighbours. They are high-achieving students and daughters by day, but merciless thieves by night. Nobody will ever suspect them, right?
Frida Asp and Fatima Varhos, who have worked on multiple Netflix projects including Greatest of All and Love & Anarchy, are producing the series. This is how its principal author Camilla Ahlgren describes the process of creating Barracuda Queens.
This is a type of series I’ve never developed or written before, and I’m so grateful for the opportunity to work with Frida and Fatima again, as well as Netflix’s belief in our concept. With five brilliant, borderless Djursholm girls as major protagonists, our goal was to do something enjoyable, hard, and unique while still saying something about our time.
They take part in the series
Alva Bratt, best known for her roles in the Eagles and the Zebra Room, leads the cast. We also witness Izabella Scorupco, Johannes Kuhnke, Tindra Monsen, Sandra Zubovic, Tea Stjärne, Sarah Gustafsson, Carsten Björnlund, Max Ulveson, Mirja Turestedt, Michaela Thorsén, Meliz Kargle, Gino Estera, and more.
There is no specific release date for the series as of this writing, but we can confirm that Barracuda Queens will be available on Netflix in 2023. It’s looking like we’ll get to see it in the spring.
A new Swedish suspense thriller based on the best-selling novel of the same name by Malin Persson Giolito. Deliver Me is both a moving description of the power of childhood friendship and a devastating look at what happens when society fails to protect those who need it the most. Finally, what is justice, and is the law capable of delivering it?
A deserted playground is blanketed with gentle snow. As his life drains from the gaping wound in his brain, a fourteen-year-old kid lies face down in front of a swing set. His best friend stands behind him, a heated revolver in his quivering palm.
Who is responsible when children commit heinous crimes? What happens to us all if we allow ourselves to see children as monsters? The lost children are at the heart of this heartbreaking story: those we fail to notice before they fall between the cracks, whether due to carelessness, poverty, or social alienation. In a society where growing violence is taking over poor outlying towns, no one is safe. Single mothers, the grocer in the town square, the local cop — no one is safe.
