The show follows two brothers who move to the fictional town of Edda.

As they settle into life in their new home, the boys start to make friends.

However, all is not as it seems and they quickly realise many of Edda’s residents aren’t who they claim to be.

Additionally, the town is rocked by extreme weather and natural disasters with a sense of foreboding pervading the atmosphere.

The siblings make friends and the group soon realises it will be up to them to save the world from Judgement Day or Ragnarök as they will have to battle an old evil.

Ragnarok stars David Stakston as Magne after featuring in TV series Skam.

Joining him will be Jonas Strand Gravli as Laurits following roles in 22 July and show Wisting.

Other cast members inched Herman Tømmeraas as Fjor, Theresa Frostad Eggesbø as Saxa and Emma Bones as Gry.
