Netflix has officially renewed the new historical drama Vikings: Valhalla for two more seasons just 12 days after its first season premiered on the streaming platform. The announcement was made by Netflix today, with a post that highlights some of the epic sizzle reel moment of Vikings: Valhalla Season 1, with a message that the show will return for Season 2 and Season 3!
Vikings: Valhalla is the sequel series to History's popular series Vikings, set one hundred years after the events of the first series, as the Viking Age begins to come to its end, and tensions with England and civil strife within the Viking clans begin to chip away at the empire.
"I am beyond excited that we are announcing the continuation of our Vikings saga," Executive producer Michael Hirst said in a statement along with the announcement of the show's renewal. "I know that the millions of our fans across the globe will be thrilled by the belief being shown in our show by MGM and Netflix. Jeb Stuart, a truly wonderful writer, will bring new storylines and a powerful visceral vision to stories about some of the most famous Vikings known to history."
"Set over a thousand years ago in the early 11th century, Vikings: Valhalla chronicles the heroic adventures of some of the most famous Vikings who ever lived – the legendary explorer Leif Eriksson (Sam Corlett), his fiery and headstrong sister Freydis Eriksdotter (Frida Gustavsson), and the 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 begin 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. VIKINGS: Valhalla, set over a hundred years after the end of the original VIKINGS series, is a new adventure that blends historical authenticity and drama with gritty, immersive action."
