Credible sources like Wikipedia have validated that the third iteration has already been released on the RÚV network. The mysteries series suffered a big loss due to the Coronavirus outbreak. Some sources are also claiming that Netflix will air the third outing by the last of 2022.

The former seasons of Trapped have shown a few glorious landscape pics of Iceland. The introductory season was filmed in the North in an imaginary untitled city. However, the majority of the scenes were shot in the small village of Seyðisfjörður.

The second season occurred in Reykjavík but eventually, the storyline reached North Iceland. We don’t know much about the shooting places of the Trapped Season 3 but actor Ólafur Darri Ólafsson shared some pictures of Seyðisfjörður through his Instagram handle back in October 2020.

The actor also posted a photo of harbor city, Hafnarfjörður situated in the capital region by mentioning “Hafnarfjöður city at dawn! Trapped season 3 has started filming…”. As the filming of the third season has occurred in the Highlands, we will get to see some graceful scenes of Icelands forests when the iteration will release on Netflix.

During the first season, it turns transparent that Andri’s positioning in Seyðisfjörður wasn’t completely established properly. Therefore, subsequent to the incidents of the beginning season, Andri can be seen as residing in Reykjavík as an agent of the police department in season 2. The majority of members of his family have also joined him to kick off a new journey of life down south – but maybe this life is not going to be much longer.

The second iteration starts with a terrible mishappening that took place in Reykjavík. The incident seems politically provoked and linked to several recent industrial expansions surrounding Seyðisfjörður. Patently, Andri is the one to be called to look into this matter. Although some changes have come in his older city – his previous deputy has been appointed as police head for freshers – it seems that dishonesty, as well as political trickery, is the same as in the first season.

In season 2, events occur at a faster rate in the show. One-way obstacles have surrounded the city. While on the other way, Andri has to solve his own life problems. The second season sees an assault on the minister. There are several barriers for Andri and Henrik. In Trapped season 3, the duo will be seen as coming out of these hurdles. It means that the upcoming season is going to be a quite thrilling and entertaining one.
