News Henning Mankell’s Young Wallander for Netflix in 2019 Published 3 months ago on November 29, 2018 Netflix today announced Young Wallander, a new original series based on Henning Mankell’s best-selling Kurt Wallander novels. The Series, which will be set in contemporary Sweden, is being produced by Yellow Bird UK who are also behind the Kenneth Brannagh Wallander adaptations. In a bold and original new story set in contemporary Sweden, Young Wallander sees Henning Mankell’s iconic detective Kurt Wallander investigate his gripping first case. The story focuses on the formative experiences – professional and personal – faced by Kurt as a recently graduated police officer in his early twenties. The English-language drama series is told over six serialized episodes and features both British and Swedish cast. Production starts during 2019. Over the last two decades Mankell’s best-selling Kurt Wallander novels have served as source material for several beloved TV series and films in Sweden as well as in the UK. The new Netflix original series Young Wallander is created by Yellow Bird UK, a Banijay Group company, and the original producer of the successful BBC series Wallander from 2008. Erik Barmack, Vice President, Head of International Originals at Netflix, says, ‘The Wallander novels have sold 40 million copies and been translated into over 40 different languages, while still being true and authentic to the Swedish noir that Mankell helped create. And the series created by Yellow Bird have also been fantastic global and local successes. Netflix is thrilled to continue this tradition and add new layers to the fantastic legacies that Mankell and Yellow Bird have created.’ Berna Levin, Creative Director, Yellowbird UK says, ‘Henning Mankell’s beloved detective Kurt Wallander has a special place in our hearts as his eponymous series was the first Yellow Bird ever produced. So, it is with tremendous joy and pride that we embark on this new journey together with Netflix as our first production through Yellow Bird UK. Getting to meet Wallander as a young man and explore how the times and his new experiences will shape him to eventually become the man we already know and love is a thrilling opportunity. We are confident he will captivate new audiences and delight longstanding fans once again with his sharp intelligence, youthful enthusiasm, and unmistakable humanity.’ FeaturedHenning MankellNetflixWallanderYoung Wallander Advertisement advertisement and this just in Episodes36 mins ago Strike Back: Season 6 Episode 6 (Cinemax Fri 1 Mar 2019) Episode 6: After ditching the seaplane they hijacked, Novin (Alin Sumarwata) and Zarkova (Yasemin Allen) find themselves at the mercy...
