A long-awaited spin-off of the popular series Vikings has been launched: Vikings: Valhalla. This one is produced by Netflix. Read what we know so far about the news, trailer and date of Valhalla season 1 on Netflix.
When will Valhalla season 1 be released on Netflix?
In the trailer that was shared during the fan event TUDUM, finally more became clear about the release date of Vikings: Valhalla. Starting in 2022, the series would be available on Netflix, but until recently the exact day was unknown. Fortunately, it was recently announced that the first season of the Viking series can be streamed on Netflix starting February 25, 2022. Eight episodes of about an hour each will then simultaneously appear online.
What is the story of Valhalla about?
Vikings: Valhalla is set over a thousand years ago in the early 11th century. The series chronicles the heroic adventures of some of the most famous Vikings who ever lived – legendary explorer Leif Eriksson (Sam Corlett), his fiery and headstrong sister Freydis Eriksdotter (Frida Gustavsson) and ambitious Nordic prince Harald Sigurdsson (Leo Suter).
As tensions between the Vikings and the English royals reach a bloody breaking point, and as the Vikings themselves clash over their conflicting Christian and pagan beliefs, these three Vikings embark on an epic journey that will take them across oceans and through battlefields, from Kattegat to England and beyond, as they fight for survival and glory. Set more than a hundred years after the end of the original Vikings series, Valhalla is a new adventure that combines historical authenticity and drama with gritty, immersive action.
The following characters and actors for the various roles have already been announced by Netflix:
- Sam Corlett (in the role of Leif Eriksson)
- Frida Gustavsson (in the role of Freydis Eriksdotter)
- Leo Suter (in the role of Harald Sigurdsson)
- Bradley Freegard (in the role of King Canute)
- Jóhannes Jóhannesson (in the role of Olaf Haraldson)
- Laura Berlin (in the role of Emma of Normandy)
- David Oakes (in the role of Earl Godwin)
- Caroline Henderson (in the role of Jarl Haakon)
- Pollyanna McIntosh (in the role of Queen Ælfgifu)
- Asbjørn Krogh Nissen (in the role of Jarl Kåre)
Will there be a Valhalla season 2 or is S1 the last season of the series?
According to information that What’s On Netflix managed to get its hands on, there will indeed be a second season of Vikings: Valhalla. The production of a first, second and third season seem to have been given the green light even before the release of S1.
Back in 2019, Deadline announced that at least 24 episodes of the Vikings series would have been ordered. Previously it was not known how many seasons this would be spread over, but it now seems as if 3 seasons are thus in the production schedule. The website of the agency of writer Dana Fainaru also indicates that she is currently writing an episode of the third season of Vikings: Valhalla for MGM Television/Netflix.
It’s certainly not entirely unlikely that the streaming service has immediately chosen to order 3 seasons of the spin-off series. After all, the original TV show Vikings was an extreme success. Therefore, when the series was brought to an end by MGM Television after 6 seasons, the good news of a spin-off series was received with great enthusiasm by the fans. It is almost beyond doubt that Vikings: Valhalla in collaboration with MGM Television and Netflix will be a success show, but only time will tell.
