A now-altered Instagram photo may have inadvertently let the cat out of the bag. 
Actress Ulrikke Falch, who plays Vilde in the wildly popular series, posted a photo to Instagram with the pretty straightforward message “I am the main character in season four”.

That may have been more than the folks at broadcaster NRK were ready to reveal at this point, so the photo caption was then changed to simply “4”.

The first three seasons of the show, set in an Oslo high school, have followed Eva, Noora and Isak. 
'Skam' has attracted fans from around the world, including the other Nordic nations (particularly amongst the somewhat overzealous Danes) the United States and even China, but NRK announced last week that all of those fans around the world are in for a major disappointment. 
Due to a dispute with the Norwegian music industry, the fourth season will only be available in Norway, undoubtedly prompting its young and tech-savvy fans to get their preferred VPN service ready. 
The fourth season will begin in the spring, whether Vilde is the main character or not.

Here are the first glimpses of the American ‘Skam’

‘Skam’, the hugely successful Norwegian television series following the lives of Oslo teenagers, has been given an American remake.

The first clips from ‘Skam Austin’, which will be broadcast on Facebook’s US streaming service, were released via social media this week.

As with the original Norwegian series, ‘Skam Austin’ gives viewers insight and sneak previews of the lives of its characters via videos and other content posted on social media accounts.

Broadcaster NRK last year sold the rights to the series, which ended last year after a highly-popular four-series run, to several European countries as well as the United States.

And the first glimpses of what is to come have now been made available online by production company XIX Entertainment, which made the series for Facebook Watch.

Fans of the show initially began speculating after Facebook page ‘SKAM Austin’ began publishing video clips last week.

The first video, a teaser, confirmed that the first episode will be released on April 24th.

Further videos have since appeared online, as have Instagram accounts connected to characters from the new series.

Julie Andem, screenwriter on the original version of Skam, also directed the new US series.

“This proves that NRK has made something world class, and is being noticed all over the world,” the Norwegian broadcaster's director Thor Gjermund Eriksen said to NRK when the US series was announced last year.


Tryouts are coming up! Are you ready?
