The Creator of THE KILLING Is Developing a Police Thriller Series for Netflix Called THE CHESTNUT MAN


Netflix is continuing to expand its content after the success of the first season of its first Danish series, the 2018 sci-fi thriller The Rain. The streamer is now adding another Danish original series to its lineup, called The Chestnut Man, “a police thriller based on The Killing creator Søren Sveistrup’s popular novel.” The first season of the series will have six 50-minute episodes.

Tesha Crawford, director of Netflix International Originals in Northern Europe, had this to say about the acquisition:

“We were instantly compelled by the strong story and Søren’s voice. We are happy to continue the collaboration with SAM Productions and are looking forward to bringing ‘The Chestnut Man’ to our global audience.”

Variety reports that the series is set to start production in 2020 and has not yet set a release date. Are you a fan of The Rain, or the book series this is based upon? Let us know.
