Gronnegaard now embodies the spirit of the family feud that has caused the four siblings so much sadness and anger. Signe, struggling to get her hemp farm up and running, wants to turn Gronnegaard back into a happy gathering place for her siblings. But it's tough, because they all have completely different ideas about their extended family and it's especially hard for Frederik to let bygones be bygones. In Thailand, Emil's predicament becomes harder and his lawyers demand more money to secure his release. In order to raise the necessary funds, Gro continues to make and sell dubious works of art but it's a strategy that puts Gro and Robert's mutual trust to the test and at the same time threatens the four heirs' future. And in the midst of all the chaos, who can take responsibility for a new-born child?
As good as, maybe even better, than series 1
- The Legacy: Series 2 review by TJ
Just like series one, a sluggish start where the characters are introduced and the conflicts begin to take shape, quickly becomes possibly one of the best family dramas in recent years. Each character is perfectly created and acted so we understand each of their motives, however bizarre they may seem.
Added to this is a beautifully rounded story of a family who are in constant battle between a reluctance to live with each other, and an inability to part company.
Series two is the perfect continuation of the story and passes the dreaded sequel syndrome with flying colours. The only negative aspect is that it is only seven episodes.
