About Ragnarok Season 1 – TV Series

Ragnarok Season 1

Ragnarok is a Norwegian fantasy drama television series reimagining of Norse mythology from Netflix. It takes place in the present-day fictional Norwegian town of Edda in Hordaland, which is plagued by climate change and industrial pollution caused by factories owned by the local Jutul family. The Jutuls are actually four jötnar (supernatural beings, inexactly translated as “Giants” in the English language overdub and closed captions) posing as a family. They are challenged by Magne, a teenage boy who is surprised to learn that he is the reincarnation of Thor, the Norse god of thunder. He begins to fight against those who are destroying the town after his friend dies under mysterious circumstances. In the second season, he is joined by more people who embody other Norse gods.

The series premiered in January 2020, with a second season released in May 2021. It is Netflix’s third Norwegian-language TV series, following Home for Christmas and Lilyhammer. The series is produced by the Danish production company SAM Productions.

In November 2021, Herman Tømmeraas, who plays Fjor, confirmed that the series was returning for a third and final season. The third season was released on August 24, 2023.

Episodes 01

“New Boy”

Magne, Laurits and Turid return to the Norwegian town of Edda. The boys’ father had died in Edda under mysterious circumstances when they were children, and they moved away. As they drive into Edda, their car is slowed down behind Wotan in his mobility scooter, who comes to a halt trying to turn right. Magne gets out to help Wotan and he is approached by Wenche. She tells Magne he is a good boy, looks up at him intensely and blesses him by touching his forehead. A change flickers through his eyes. The brothers attend the local high school. Awkward Magne becomes friends with green advocate Isolde, who blames local pollution on the Jutul family. He and Isolde hike up to the glacier, which she has monitored. Vidar parks on the mountain. He strips, stalks a reindeer, tears out its heart and eats it. A text from Laurits sends Magne running swiftly down the mountain, but it turns out to be a false alarm.

It disappears into the clouds with a flash of lightning.

Turid bonds with Erik; eventually they start a relationship. Both Magne and Fjor have a romantic interest in Gry. On a school camping trip into the mountains, Laurits tricks Magne into publicly confessing his love for Gry. She cares for Magne but does not love him, but instead chooses to go off with Fjor. After seeing Vidar cutting up raw reindeer meat, Magne realizes that it smells the same as the blood of Isolde’s jacket at the time of her death. Magne deduces that Vidar was behind her death and warns Vidar that he will not get away with it. Vidar notices Magne’s knife has the same marking as the hammer that destroyed his windshield. After Magne follows Fjor and Gry, Vidar sends Thrym, his hellhound, to kill Magne. Magne and Thrym struggle until Magne kills Thrym. When visiting the Jutul’s home with Fjor, Gry notices something is wrong with the family: century-old photos and older artwork depict all the Jutuls as physically unchanged from the past into the present.

Episodes 05

“Atomic Number 48”

The Jutuls conspire to punish Magne because he killed Thrym, albeit in self-defense. When Magne proposes to write a critical assignment about Jutul Industries, he is confronted at a meeting attended by Ran, Sindre, Erik and Turid. He is forced to return Isolde’s laptop to Erik. Nevertheless, Erik privately hands over Isolde’s mobile to Magne, which Erik had found on the mountain. Magne unlocks it and finds incriminating photos of Jutul Industries’ water pollution. He goes up the mountain and discovers 2,500 barrels in a newly exposed cave, which have leached toxic heavy metal wastes, including cadmium (element 48) into Edda’s water supply. Magne reports the existence of the barrels to the police. However when police go to investigate, all the toxic barrels are gone. The police had felt obliged to pre-notified the Jutul Industries of their planned visit. Neither the police nor his high schools administration takes Magne’s allegations seriously.
