Who has finally captured Johanne’s heart? Find out on December 18 when Home for Christmas returns for a second season.
What is Home for Christmas About?
Johanne (Broch) is a nurse in her 30s, working at a hospital in Norway. During Advent dinner, she feels pressured by her family to be in a relationship. She lies and tells them that she has a boyfriend, and that he will accompany her to Christmas dinner.
Felix Sandman, who plays Jonas, has already starred in another Netflix original series, Quicksand
Johanne then tries to find a boyfriend through speed dating, internet dating, and other means. She goes on dates with several men, including 18 year old Jonas (Felix Sandman), and the much older Bengt Erik (Bjørn Skagestad). She also has a brief sexual encounter with Eira, one of her female coworkers.
None of this results in Johanne finding a boyfriend. In the last episode of season one, coworker Dr. Henrik tells her that he loves her. They are interrupted by a medical emergency before she can respond. She then goes to her parent’s house for Christmas dinner. During dinner, the doorbell rings. The first season ends with a shot of Johanne’s face as she opens the door, possibly for one of her suitors.
