We have good news for fans of Polish crime fiction. Netflix he announced the second season of the series Rojst. The premiere is scheduled for 2021. The pictures have already started.
Andrzej Seweryn and Dawid Ogrodnik will return in the main roles. From the new faces in the cast we will see, among others Magdalena Różczka and Łukasz Simlat. Jan Holoubek will again sit in the director’s chair. The story will consist of six episodes.
The action of the second season will be set in 1997, during the flood of the century. The embankments in the south of Poland cannot withstand the pressure of water. Among the flooded places there is a forest in Grontach, which leads to the disclosure of a secret that the inhabitants would prefer not to disclose.
Director Jan Holoubek describes the second season as follows:
The possibility of returning to the world and the characters of “Rojst” is for me a dream come true to continue the great adventure that was the first season. The central theme of season two is redemption, both in the broader social and individual context. It is the main motivation of each of the main characters. Piotr Zarzycki, Teresa Zarzycka and Witold Wałycz, known from the first season, as well as new characters, such as Anna Jass and Adam Mika – each try to redeem the guilt of the past in their own way.
Let us remind you that the first season of Rojsta debuted on the Showmax streaming platform in 2018. This service, however, ceased operations in Poland at the end of 2019. The rights to the series were taken over by Netflix, where the production has been available since December last year.
