BEVERLY HILLS, Calif., Jan. 13 (UPI) — Netflix said Monday it has ordered a third season of its Norway-set comedy series, “Lilyhammer,” starring Steven Van Zandt.

“We are proud to bring back ‘Lilyhammer’ for a third season,” Ted Sarandos, chief content officer at Netflix, said in a statement. “‘Lilyhammer’ is the type of global show that Netflix members around the world have discovered and love and season three will see that world expand even more.”
