Production and Development

Production Errors

  • In the beginning of the season Isak owns a Hewlett Packard computer (as seen in 3x02), but for the rest of the season he owns a Dell computer.
  • Similar to above, Isak switches from a black to a gold iPhone througout the season
  • In 3x01 when facetiming Noora, Eskild's thumb covers the bottom left of the screen when the camera is on the phone. However when he camera is on Linn, Isak and Eskild, his thumb is on the side. This is probably to hide the camera filming the phone, which would be visible in the 'selfie' part of the screen, which Eskild covers up.
  • Slight continuity error in 3x02 when it's still light out despite it being close to 8PM while later on during the pregame at The Kollektiv it is already pitch black at 7.30PM (however fall's rapid decline of daylight in the evening could be the cause of this)
  • In episode 3x06, Isak changes pants mid-schoolday: he wears black pants while walking onto the school yard, and he's wearing light pants when talking to Jonas at the lockers.
  • In 3x07 Isak finds a drawing from Even in his locker. He reads it, and then goes to fold it up. However as he is folding it, the piece of paper is blank unlike before when both halves of the paper had the drawing.
  • In 3x08, when Even is introduced to the boy squad, instead of saying Jonas, the actor who portrays him uses his own name, Marlon.

Notes and Trivia

  • Season 3 is the highest rated season of the series, and the most popular season internationally.
  • Season 3 along with season 4 has the shortest episode count with 10 episodes each.
  • Season 3 gave the series Skam 2 Gullruten awards.
  • The original manuscript for several episodes of the third season was bought by fans and donated in support of unicef.
