See episode 1 of  HOME GROUND season 2 at the Winter Cinema - one month before it airs on NRK!

The NRK drama series HOME GROUND was a huge success with the Norwegian TV audience in 2018. The show  received praise from the critic's and also won Gullruten (Norwegian Emmy) Awards, for Best drama series, Best screenplay and Best female and male leading role. 

Through season one we followed Helena Mikkelsen (Ane Dahl Torp) as she became the first ever female football coach in the Norwegian top division, and her team Varg barely survived at the top level. Through her first season, Helena went from being disliked by everyone, to be cherished by both players and supporters. At the same time, Varg lost their main sponsor – and Helena lost her connection with her daughter.

Before the new season, Varg is facing financial challenges and Helena must build a new team, almost from scratch. Varg’s first match is against last season’s champions Rosenborg from her hometown Trondheim –  where also her daughter, Camilla lives.
