Det store sjokket om at Skam ikke skulle fortsette etter sesong 4, har vel lagt seg hos de fleste. Skaperen Julie Anden, bestemte seg for at Sana ble siste hovedrollen, og har nå gått videre til nye prosjekter. Helt spesifikt: amerikanske Skam. Selvom vi aldri tilgir Andem for å avslutte norske Skam, så er vi jo litt spente på den amerikanske versjonen.
Skam Austin, som det heter, ser nå ut til å ha fått en egen Instagram-konto, hvor det allerede er postet noen klipp (se under). Første episode skal vises 24. april og rollefigurene skal angivelig få sine Instagram-kontoer samme dag.
Vi gleder oss faktisk litt til å se hvordan dette blir, selvom det helt sikkert blir litt annerledes. Forhåpentligvis blir det i Andems ånd – og da kan vi være trygge på at det blir rimelig bra!
Dear Coolest fanbase on earth. Thank you so much for all your messages, I am not able to answer all of you, but I read everything. And with this note I want to try to answer some of your most frequent questions. When Skam started my plan was to make three seasons and then hand it over to a new writer/director. But when season 3 was done, I couldn’t give it away. It didn’t feel right. So I made one last season. I know many of you are still sad it ended, but I am positive it was the right decision. I wanted Skam to be no less than amazing, and for several reasons I wouldn’t have been able to make a season 5 as good as it deserved to be. Maybe at some point in time we will go back to Skam and meet all the characters once again. But not now. Skam was made at NRK, the public broadcaster in Norway, and they also own the rights to it. NRK is not a commercial network, but financed by the Norwegian public trough a mandatory annual license fee, which means that it is paid by the Norwegian public to make content for the Norwegian public. This is great because it means that the network is not run by profit, but is able to take chances on bold ideas with a small target audience, shows like Skam. But it also means that it is there to serve the Norwegian public. So even though teens from all over the world started watching Skam, every choice we made in the show was to serve teens in Norway. At some point it became impossible not to notice the need amongst teens everywhere. The need to open up and discuss topics like mental illness, sexual harassment and sexual orientation. This is why NRK sold the show for remakes. I have decided to showrun and direct the American version of Skam. I didn’t want to give it to someone else. It will be a challenge to try to make it in a different culture, in a different language, to a much larger and diverse audience, but I promise that I will put all of my effort and heart in to it. And I am going to need your help. Because Skam is not my show. All of us own Skam. It is not just a drama series, it’s an event and a community that all of you are a part of and contribute to. So please help me. Let's show teens everywhere that they are not alone.
24. april kl. 3:40 PM
Hva syns du? Veldig ulikt norske Skam, men det er kanskje en fin ting?
Det er ikke bare i USA at Skam har blitt populært. Se traileren til Skam Italia under:
