Ykköskauden tapahtumista on kulunut puoli vuotta. Keväästä ollaan siirrytty syksyyn. Päähenkilö, jääkäritaustainen poliisi Nina Kautsalo, on muuttanut Rovaniemelle hetkeksi aikaa. Ykköskausi kuvattiin kokonaan Lapissa ja pääkaupunkiseudulla yhteensä puolen vuoden aikana. Toisen tuotantokauden kuvaukset tehdään valtaosin Etelä-Suomessa. Kuvauspäiviä on kertynyt tähän mennessä Porvoon lisäksi Helsingissä. Kuvauksia tullaan tekemään myös Lapin tunturikeskuksissa ja Rovaniemellä. Sarjan toisella kaudella nähdään ensimmäiseltä tuotantokaudelta tutut näyttelijät eli Iina Kuustosen, Pihla Viitalan ja Mikko Leppilammen lisäksi Kari Ketonen, Inka Kallén, Taneli Mäkelä ja Susanna Haavisto.

Maximilian Brückner has added a 'like' to most of these and other set pictures, so I assume he is following the production progress, but he is not yet on set in Finland because filming "The Wannsee Conference" in Berlin continues to mid-December.
Dec 1 Due to the still high numbers of Covid-19 infections in Germany, the federal and state governments have extended the ban on theaters, cinemas and concerts to January 10, 2021. All performances prior to this date have therefore been cancelled.

80-Minute Podcast with series director Hannu Salonen and DoP Felix Cramer on "Visual Revolutionary", recorded in October 2020.
Episode #153: They join Ric Stovall's podcast to talk about their journey from film students in Germany to building a career in film and television that would lead to working together on this beautiful visual presentation of historical fiction. During our conversation we talk about what they are currently working on and how it's been effected by Covid, how they went about creating some of the amazing long one take shots that help to set "Oktoberfest" apart from other shows, where they draw creative inspiration from and how they keep from getting burned out, and the advice they give to others hoping to one day tell their own stories.
Nov 9 Due to the increasing numbers of Covid-19 infections in Germany, the federal and state governments have issued a ban on theatres, cinemas and concerts from 2 to 30 November 2020. All November performances have therefore been cancelled.
