The Danish political TV drama Borgen is set for a new series on Netflix

Netflix are to develop a brand new series of Danish drama, Borgen.

The show was a surprise hit when it broadcast in the UK on BBC4 back in 2012 and 2013 and follows the complex deal-making involved in Danish bloc politics.

The new series will reunite Sidse Babett Knudsen and Hjort Sørensen who both featured in the original series. It will pick up the story a number of years after the events of the last series and will see Sidse Babett Knudsen's Birgitte Nyborg no longer in the role of Prime Minister but instead foreign minister after a period in opposition.

The series will reportedly be more internationally focused than the previous instalments. We are waiting for more information from Netflix on expected broadcast dates.
