The recording of this autumn’s farm adventure 100 years back in time is already well under way for the tenants at Li farm in Stange.
Earlier this year, it was announced that the program would have a new presenter, Niklas Baarli (33), who was a participant in this year’s Farmen celebrity season.

However, this will not be the only change in this year’s season.
TV 2 confirms that several changes will be made, including the choice of dueling branch and the large farmers letter.
– We are constantly looking for ways to renew and further develop our programmes. This applies both to the viewers, but also to give the participants some “twists” that can surprise a little in an otherwise familiar format, says TV 2’s program editor Kathrine Haldorsen.
Being put off by romance issues
The one change, which affects the participants to a greater extent, is that the second fighter will not tell the choice of dueling discipline to the first fighter until they are both on the court.
Usually, the runner-up tells which dueling discipline they have chosen as presenter at the giant cabins, and then the presenter passes on the selected discipline to the first-ever – well in advance of the duel.
This year, the first champion will not know which branch they will fight in until they stand at the court, and right before the duel. It will give the first fighter less time to prepare mentally and physically for the duel in which they will fight.
These are this year’s Farmen participants
The second change is that the participant who loses the duel writes the resignation letter after the duel. Therefore, only the participant who actually quits during the duel will be the one who writes the resignation letter, and not both giants as has been the case in the past.
In the past, both the first and second champion have been asked to write the farewell letter revealing the next week’s big pawn before they leave the first and second champion cabins.
The farm premieres today, Tuesday 6 September at 21:40 on TV 2 and whenever you want on TV 2 Play.
