Lilyhammer is a Norwegian television series, starring Steven Van Zandt, about a fictional New York gangster, Frank "The Fixer" Tagliano, trying to start a new life in isolated Lillehammer in Norway. The first season premiered on Norwegian NRK1 on 25 January 2012 with a record audience of 998,000 viewers, and premiered on Netflix in North America on 6 February 2012, with all eight episodes being available in full for streaming on the service. Lilyhammer is the first original series by Netflix. The spelling of the series title alludes to Lily ��� Tagliano's dog ��� killed in the first episode during an attempt on Tagliano's life, and the way some anglophones mispronounce the name of the town. A second season was commissioned after the success of the first. However, Van Zandt's schedule with Bruce Springsteen and the E Street Band's Wrecking Ball Tour delayed production. It was announced in January 2013 that guitarist Tom Morello would replace him for the Australian leg of the tour, so that filming could go ahead. Filming completed in April 2013, and included shoots both in Norway and New York City. Season two premiered 23 October 2013 on NRK, and 13 December 2013 on Netflix. In an interview with Rolling Stone magazine, Van Zandt announced he has signed on for a third season of the show, with filming to begin 3 January 2014.
