The comedy series Norsemen will not return for a fourth season on Netflix because it was canceled after three seasons by NRK1 and, as a result, Netflix has decided not to pick up the fourth season on its own.
The Norwegian series is the third project on which Netflix and NRK have collaborated. Lilyhammer was the first (and still holds the distinction of being the first Netflix Original) in 2013, followed by Nobel in 2016 and Norsemen in 2017.
Norsemen (known as Vikingane in Norway) was created by Jon Iver Helgaker and Jonas Torgersen and followed a band of Vikings in the 8th century. Many of the faces featured throughout the series will be familiar to Lilyhammer fans.
Season three of the show premiered on Netflix in July 2020 with little fanfare. The series spent three days in the top ten in the United Kingdom but did not make it to the top ten in the United States.

Several fans expressed their sadness in response to the announcements, with one writing, “Norsemen has rightfully become one of the best comedies to have come out in the last 20 years” (or honestly well, since Monty Python). Thank you very much for everything, and I wish everyone the best in the future.”
Regardless of the bad news. Other current Norwegian Netflix Originals appear to be doing well on Netflix. We’ll get another season of Ragnarok, as well as a new season of the Norwegian Christmas comedy-drama Home for Christmas. We’re still waiting to see if the horror anthology series Bloodride will return.
