Svensson, Svensson is a Swedish sitcom. It has also been made into a feature film and a play.

Two seasons consisting of 12 episodes each were broadcast in the autumn of 1994 and the autumn of 1996. They have since been repeated numerous times. The series was revived for a third season in 2007.

"Svensson, Svensson" is one of the most successful sitcoms in Swedish television history. During the second season, each episode gathered more than 2,5 million viewers, in a country which at the time had a population of around 8,8 million people. The most watched episode was broadcast on November 17, 1996 and gathered 3,395,000 viewers. [ [ MMS HotTop] ]

The series centres around the Svensson family who lives in the Vivalla suburb in Örebro. The family consists of the father Gustav (Allan Svensson) who works as mailman, the mother Lena (Suzanne Reuter) who works at a bank, their teenage dother Lina (Chelsie Bell Dickson) and their son Max (Gabriel Odenhammar).

For the revival, Gustav has had to retire from his work at the post, while Lena works for the local government. Max now works at the bank and Lina (now played by Claudia Galli) has married the conductor John (Felix Engström) who brought his daughter Greta (Embla Hjulström) into the family.

The Svensson surname is one of the most common names in Sweden. It is often used to represent something average, which is illustrated by the word "medelsvensson", used about the average Swede. Svensson corresponds to Smith in anglo-saxon countries.
