A Dutch remake called Tessa (2015) has been made and aired in November 2015 on NPO 1. It followed the storyline of Rita Season one, with only a few changes. The lead role was played by Thekla Reuten. See more »
I fell head over heels for this show. I watch and read a lot of UK and Scandinavian stuff and usually find it more interesting than US TV. I found "Rita" by accident and liked it immediately..possibly because I taught school for awhile and know what a hard job it is. I found the school issues totally plausible and loved Rita's determination to help her students, even to her own detriment. I binged watched this show to the point of dreaming about the characters. The lead actress is really good....I loved just watching her but liked the writing too. Seeing "gay" being handled as no big deal was very refreshing. I just finished season 3 today and am already in withdrawal. More! I need more! I am a 70 year old grandmother who likes good solid stories. I hope they add more seasons of this show.
