What Is the Plot of Borgen Season 4?
Borgen: Power and Glory, the fourth season of Borgen, will follow Birgitte Nyborg on a new political journey.
“Birgitte Nyborg is the newly appointed minister for foreign affairs when a drilling company unexpectedly discovers oil in Greenland,” according to the official summary.
An event that marks the start of an international struggle for power in the Arctic, and one in which Nyborg, despite Denmark’s ‘big brother’ relationship with Greenland, must repeatedly accept that when it comes to the international superpowers, Denmark is the minor player – and a somewhat unruly one at that…
“The season will also track the adventure of Katrine Fnsmark (Birgitte Hjort Srensen).” After serving as Birgitte’s head of press for a while, she is returning to journalism in the new season, where she has obtained a job as the head of a huge, countrywide television station’s news section.”
Sidse Babett Knudsen, the show’s lead actress, said she has “sky-high expectations” for the show’s renewal.
“We’re finally getting back into Borgen, and it’s about time. I’ve been anticipating this moment so much that I feel like I’m about to burst. “I’m looking forward to meeting all the new characters, both on and off camera (and behind the desks), as well as revisiting the ‘old ones’ from the first seasons,” she stated.
“You should be cautious about what you say, but I have big hopes for this project.” Most importantly, I am looking forward to returning to Birgitte Nyborg. What a joy it is to be able to ride the carousel with this wonderful character once more.”
Borgen, the Danish political drama, will return for a fourth season in 2022, over ten years after the previous installment aired.
Sidse Babett Knudsen (Westworld) will reprise her legendary role as Birgitte Nyborg, who became Denmark’s first female Prime Minister in the fictionalized version of the country, in January 2021.
Borgen: Power and Glory, the fourth season, will see Birgitte in her post as Minister of Foreign Affairs, facing a fresh problem.
