HBO released on Monday (8) a new trailer for the Swedish series Beartown. Production debuted in 2020 in its original country, but is now being expanded to other countries of the brand.
In five episodes, viewers get to know a fairly simple community, surrounded by snow, in which all residents place their hopes on a junior ice hockey team. When the boys, led by Kevin (Oliver Dufåker), have a great opportunity to rise, a brutal crime threatens to destroy the entire Beartown lull.
According to the official description of the series, the plot of the episodes explores several family traumas, romances among teenagers, actions and consequences, in addition to delving into issues related to justice. There are many attractive themes already evidenced by the images presented in the trailer.
