"The other jar" has not yet had a premiere. But SVT has already ordered the second season.
On November 11, the series begins with a family moving to Norrbotten to run hotels. Tonträff between "Solsidan" and "Bonusfamilien".
"I'm so happy," says Sanna Sundqvist, who plays a key role. I feel like pleasure to deepen in one character and that viewers are even more familiar with the characters.
Madde plays with her husband Petter and her 13-year-old daughter from Stockholga to Maddy's birthplace Björkfjället. Mommy Ingegärd (Lena T Hansson) is retired and Madd will now lead the hotel together with her brother.

Felix Herngren is the CEO of "Andre åket".
"It was supposed to be a pure comedy, but it takes a drama," says Felix Herngren. When we started dealing with characters and their family relationships, they became more serious. You can choose the song "just joking" but it's not fun to do it. It's fun to give them more lives.
"We're working the series all the time," he says. Our view is that your viewers need to be more interested in more than a few years ago when there was only SVT and TV 4. Today, there is so much diversity that you need to give people more meat on their feet to watch them.
In the reign there are defenders like Bert-Åke Varg but also a newer face like Jakob Setterberg and Michael Lindgren from "Grotesca", Ida Engvoll. William Spetz and Mattias Fransson from "Klungana".
– These actors have suggested early and I think SVT asked "where are all the big stars?" Says Felix Herngren. We really thought about them and it was fun SVT did dare. It's good they have now ordered the second season.
The series occupies a series of cultural conflicts between Stockholm and rural people.
"Since the beginning Madde did not come out of town, but we wanted to escape from" big city couples who are never in the country, "he says Erik Hultkvist in a group of scripts. We did not want to make two stockholkers who never stood on skis without coming home. In relationships with her family you can go deeper.
The "Second Yard" is broadcast in eight episodes of November 11 at the classical comedy clock at SVT at 20.00.
