Netflix announces 'Lilyhammer' Season 2 premiere date, new trailer released

"Lilyhammer" Season 2 now has a premiere date, which marks the beginning of Netflix rolling out its second seasons of its original content. The eight episodes of the gangster comedy will premiere on Netflix on Dec. 13 at 12:01 a.m. PT.

In addition to that exciting announcement, Netflix also released a trailer for the second season that reveals a "Game of Thrones" actor has joined the cast of "Lilyhammer." Paul Kaye, best known as Thoros of Myr to fans of the HBO fantasy show, will be playing Duncan Hammer in the Netflix original series.

"Lilyhammer" tells the story of former gangster Frank "The Fixer" Tagliano after he entered witness protection and ended up stuck in Lillehammer, Norway. The series will be available at launch in the United States, Canada and Latin America.

"The second season of 'Lilyhammer' is an amped up ride that gives us Steven Van Zandt at his glorious, baddest, best," Ted Sarandos, chief content officer at Netflix, says in a statement. "Whether you enjoyed Season 1 or are catching it for the first time, 'Lilyhammer' is a mob show like no other."
