'Bonus Family' season 3: Release date, plot, cast, trailer, and everything you need to know about the Swedish dramedy

Netflix is bringing back the delightful Swedish comedy 'Bonus Family' for a third season. Originally aired on the network SVT in Sweden, the hit dramedy from Scandinavia was acquired by Netflix for international distribution. Created by Felix Herngren (from 'The Hundred-Year-Old Man Who Climbed Out the Window and Disappeared' fame) along with wife Clara Herngren and sister Moa Herngren, 'Bonus Family' first came to TV in 2017, and the series won a Kristallen award in 2017 for Best TV drama. 

Unfortunately, as of now, this will be the last season for the beloved Swedish drama. It was reported that the parent channel SVT doesn't have any intentions of extending the series after the third season. "Right now there are no plans for a fourth season of 'Bonus Family'. But we are not closing the doors on it for the future," SVT Head Of Drama, Anna Croneman, was reported saying. Felix and Clara Herngren responded, "Of course it would be sad if SVT didn’t want to pick up a fourth season. But we are keeping our fingers crossed that Bonus Family will return in some way or another."
