Trivia

A spin-off of the series called Hjørdis (2015) debuted in May 2015. It was announced prior to, but aired after, Rita's third season. The spin-off takes place in the same school as 'Rita', focusing on her colleague Hjordis (Lise Baastrup)' attempt to organise a school play. Mille Dinesen (Rita) did not return for that series.

Rita TV Series Seasons 1 and 2 2012 - 2013
10 December 2014 | by alnasiradSee all my reviews

I really enjoyed watching this series. I saw it first on Netflix. And then was able to get Season 2 elsewhere. The story is about Rita, as in the title, a parent of a dis-functional single parent family whose character is so well portrayed and played. I do not speak Danish so I relied on the sub- titles but that did not significantly detract me from the film enjoyment. Rita plays the role of a mother, a teacher and a outgoing sexually driven, outspoken individual whose life tribulations make a gripping tale. She is a just as kind and caring a teacher as she is hot headed and aggressive towards her dominant peers and challenges authority wherever she sees it to be unfair or irrational. Makes for a very entertaining and emotional drama.
