Is “The Oslo Girl” based on a true story?
There is nothing better than immersing yourself in a good suspense thriller because it is getting colder and colder this winter. And Netflix has the perfect show to watch if you want to stay indoors all day: The Oslo Girl, an effortless Norwegian historical drama. After watching – or before, or during – you’ll wonder if this gripping series was entirely based on real events, and we’ve got some answers.
The Oslo Girl takes place in both Norway and Israel, following Pia as she and her two friends are kidnapped by ISIS operatives. After the kidnapping, the series follows their friends, family, and detectives as they try to save them from danger. The fast-paced series is an intimidating look at overseas intelligence agencies, and you won’t want to miss it.
Here’s everything you need to know about the real story behind The Oslo Girl.
East The Oslo Girl based on a true story?
While The Oslo Girl may be partially based on a true story, for the most part the story is made up of fictional dramatizations that add to a more realistic shell. There are some aspects of reality to the show – like, say, Bill Clinton’s voiceover on the Oslo Accord from early 1993 – but the characters themselves aren’t based on real people. Still, the show refers to real-world events: like decisions made by Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu.
And the larger story seems to reflect the events of 2013, even though the characters aren’t real people. A decade ago, tourists from Israel and Norway feared they would be kidnapped in Egypt by ISIS. This reflects the plot of The Oslo Girl, although the series is not officially based on this news.
East The Oslo Girl based on a book?
No. The series was created by Kyrre Holm Johannessen and Ronit Weiss-Berkowitz, with assistance from Tal Miller and Stephen Uhlander of the writing department.
Will there be a season 2 of The Oslo Girl?
We don’t have any news on Season 2 at this time, but stay tuned. The Oslo Girl has yet to be canceled, and with enough popularity we may see more episodes on Netflix soon.
