A new series based on Spotify is coming to Netflix in 2022

The fictional series – inspired by The Social Network – will be based on the popular book Spotify Untold.

The world’s best-known video streaming service, Netflix, is producing a fictional series based on Spotify and ‘Spotify Untold‘ a book by Swedish business reporters Sven Carlsson and Jonas Leijonhufvud. Set for release sometime in 2022, the series – inspired by the largely popular 2010 movie about Mark Zuckerberg and Facebook, The Social Network – is based on ‘Spotify Untold’ – the story of the rise of the world’s leading audio streaming service.

The book by Sven Carlsson and Jonas Leijonhufvud tells the story of Spotify, beginning as a small startup, its ongoing rivalry and much more. With topics that are so closely followed and enjoyably trivial, we hope that the documentary lives up to Netflix’s binge-worthy standards. 

As of yet, there is no known official release date for the series. Nor has there been any indication of how long it will be. 

Edvin Endre of Vikings will play CEO and co-founder Daniel Ek, with Ulf Stenberg of Beartown playing Per Sundin – Universal Music Sweden’s former managing director. Love & Anarchy’s Gizem Erdogan will play one of Spotify’s architects, Petra Hansson, and Joel Lützow of Gåsmamman will play ex-Spotify CTO Andreas Ehn. The Last Kingdom star Christian Hillborg also appears in the series, playing Martin Lorentzon – another of Spotify’s co-founders.

In one of the longest-running and closest followed feuds of the digital age, who knows? It may not be long before we see an Apple Music series pop up!
