Executive produced by Poehler and his famous sister, Amy, the show follows the overseas adventures of a New York accountant (Poehler) who relocates to Sweden with the love of his life (Josephine Bornebusch), who is a native of that country. Guest stars include celebrities such as Will Ferrell and Aubrey Plaza.

Welcome to Sweden has been averaging 2.9 million viewers on Thursday nights this summer. The show, which aired earlier this year on Swedish television, has already been renewed for season 2. A premiere date for the new episodes on NBC has yet to be determined.
