Okkupert (original title) – In the near future, Russia initiates a “silk glove” invasion of Norway to restart oil production, but soon uncertainty, chaos and danger erupt. Norway is occupied by Russia on behalf of the European Union, due to the fact that the newly elected environmental friendly Norwegian government has stopped the all important oil- and gas-production in the North Sea.
Six month after the first season concluded, the Russian occupation still holds Norway in a firm grip. In the first episode of the second season we follow the steps to form an exile government, and the negotiations with EU and Russia in the wake of a military confrontation at a gas plant. Russia has arrested the Coast Guard soldiers who were behind the action at Melkøya, Anita Rygg has promised that they will be handed over to Norway, but when one of the soldiers is dead, it becomes more problematic. The Coast Guard soldiers are sentenced to one of the most severe punishments available. Meanwhile, terrorism continues and Anita wants to negotiate an amnesty with Free Norway to calm the people.
