Borgen Season 5 Release Date: When To Anticipate?


What did you think after reading this word? You probably thought about many things after coming across the word. It is natural to think about many things when it comes to politics. Everything has politics in it. Everything. No relationship in this world can exist without politics. The literature says that your entire being is political. The relationship that you have with your parents is political as well. If you want to look after your well-being, you will have to be political. If you are not political enough, you will probably lose many opportunities in life. Understanding the politics of your being can bring you advantageous situations. 

People and Politics are related closely; without politics, people cannot exist. This politics is heightened when it comes to the politics of a country or government. The politics of a country or government is public, unlike the politics of an individual self which is an extremely private affair. The politics of the Oikos (Greek word for ‘household’ which means the private self), is very different from the politics of the Koinos (Greek word for ‘community’ which means the public self). When you are someone who is looking after the politics of a country or a government, you have to be tactful and witty.

Borgen Season 5 Release Date

The plot of Borgen revolves around how a woman rises from the position of a member of a political party to the position of Prime Minister. 

The creator of Borgen, Adam Price, made sure that the politics shown in Borgen will be fictional and away from the real scenario of the country. However, there have been many scenes where the future was kind of foretold in the show. For instance, the plot of a woman rising to the position of prime minister came true when Helle Thornig Schmidt became the first female leader of the country.

In an interview with the BBC, the creators of the show said, “all that is shown in the show could be a reality.” Astonishingly, some things did become reality after the show was released (like the one mentioned above). 

The show revolves around Birgette Nyborg Christensen. She was once a married woman, but her passion for politics caused a split in her personal life when she had to divorce her husband. The story is about how Nyborg manages to ascend the stairs to become the first female leader of the country. Although she had to face many allegations and condescending behavior, she never stopped. She was determined to make her position stable and secure. 

The first three seasons of the show have seen how Nybord ascended the stairs toward her success through the political party that she was a member of. The fourth season of the show witnesses Nyborg’s descendent from the position of prime minister. In the fourth season, Nyborg becomes a businesswoman and becomes a member of a new political party. There she attains a respectable position once again, but her ascend toward the position of the leader of the country never happens again. 

Borgen has also captured an issue with Greenland in its fourth season. It is here where the show has come fairly close to reality even if the plot is fictional. As per the reports, the show has shown how the Arctic region has always been an area of interest for politicians from the surrounding countries. The issue of climate change has also been referenced to some extent in the political drama.

The show is full of twists and turns and is interesting enough to keep you hooked on the series. The show encapsulates the struggle that women have to go through when they choose their ambitions over their private sphere. Nyborg chose the Koinos at the cost of her Oikos. This is something that has still not changed. The work-life balance is a right of all women just like men. If men can have the right to maintain a healthy work-life besides maintaining a family, women can have that too. Series like Borgen encompass this very foundational idea. 

If you are searching for a series with an intense storyline, Borgen is a nice choice. The show has intense dramatic moments which will seem very similar to what is happening in the real world of politics. As Price has said, the show has enough potential to become reality, and that is scary.
