Remake[edit]

On 8 January 2018, Zomer in Zeeland (translated: Summer in Zeeland) premiered on the Dutch channel SBS6. The show stars Daniël Boissevain as Sjors Mulder, Pip Pellens as his daughter Fenna Mulder and Tonko Bossen as his son Jurgen Mulder. The remake changes the setting to the Dutch province Zeeland, but follows the same storyline. Ironically, the country of New Zealand, where the original takes place, was named after Zeeland.
