The Alps are striking in their beauty and mystery. Therefore, when a dead body is found on a mountain pass, no one is especially surprised – this place is ideal for concealing crimes. Nearby is the German-Austrian border, and the place where the corpse was located, more like a pagan ritual. With this investigation begins the most terrible story of the series.
When will the series “Pagan Peak Season 2” be released?
It is officially known that the shooting of season 2 took place during the winter of 2019-2020, and after suspension due to the coronavirus pandemic, continued in the fall of 2020. The ratings of the project were quite high, the criticism was favorable, so practically no one doubted that the director would take up the project again. The exact release date of the sequel to the mystical thriller “Pagan Peak / Der Pass” has been announced: it will premiere on January 21, 2022!
Cyrill Boss, acting second screenwriter, said that the basis for the plot was the legend of Krampus, living in the Alpine mountains. The creature kept terrified the locals as it paced the territory of the Angel and St. Nicholas. Krampus chose disobedient children as victims.
When a male corpse was found between Austria and Germany, the detectives immediately set to work. It was found that the man got here already being dead, and in his pockets are fake documents. But most of all detectives were struck by the fact that in the hands of the deceased there was a hair belonging to a horse.
In order to move faster, the local police decide to appoint two detectives who can help justice triumph. From Germany, the cheerful Ellie Stocker was sent. But at the sight of the horrific spectacle, the girl seemed to have been replaced – each subsequent day spent here, cast fear, cold and melancholy on her.
On the part of Austria, not the best of the detectives was sent, the parasite and Gedeon Winter dependent on alcohol. The man is the most in the group for the treatment of alcohol addiction, but apparently Austria has not decided to throw the best forces at the capture of a religious killer who performs truly satanic rites with his random victims.
Together they have to investigate and put up with each other’s shortcomings. Oddly enough, the partners quickly find a common language, and Gedeon is talented not only in the choice of alcohol, but also in his profession. The investigation begins to resemble the game of a serial maniac, and the longer the detectives investigate this case, the more victims are…
At the end of season 1, the main characters manage to find a cruel killer, but these are not all the dangers that lurk in the path of detectives. Colleagues are not destined to meet in the season 2 due to the death of one of them. But the criminals are not asleep, which means someone must stop them…
