It’s no surprise that Vikings: Valhalla has taken over Netflix. Within 24 hours of its release, it became the most-watched show on the streaming service.
The spin-off series is loosely based on history and mythology. It goes on from the original Vikings series and moves it 100 years closer to the present, where the world is changing but the fight for power is still going on.
Fans want to know when they will see more of the characters (well, the ones who are still alive) after the bloody and tense end of season one.
You’re lucky that we’re here to tell you. Here’s all the information you need.
Vikings: Valhalla Season 2 Release Date
TVLine has confirmed that Netflix has ordered two more seasons of the historical drama. In fact, Season 2 has finished filming, with a premiere date slated for next year. Production for Season 3 will begin in the spring. Netflix hasn’t officially announced an exact release date. However, we can presume that it might premiere in early 2023.

Series creator Jeb Stuart (Die Hard, The Fugitive) will return as showrunner for Seasons 2 and 3.
“I’m thrilled to be able to confirm that we wrapped and are already editing Season 2 and that production will start soon on Season 3,”
he said in a statement.
“While the storylines for Leif, Freydis, Harald, Olaf, Canute, and the rest of our amazing cast are secret, I can say without hesitation that their journeys will be even more epic than what you’ve seen so far. SKÅL!!!”
How many episodes will there be in Vikings: Valhalla Season 2?
It is said that 24 episodes make up three seasons, so each season will have eight episodes. Also, What’s on Netflix says that season 3 will likely feature George Maniakes, who was a great general in the Byzantine Empire. Florian Munteanu will play his part again.
Vikings: Valhalla has a great cast and a story that keeps you interested, so it’s getting harder and harder to wait for the next season. Stay tuned for more news until then.
Vikings: Valhalla Season 2 Cast
Vikings: Valhalla kills a few characters, most of the villainous variety, such as Jarl Kre, in the course of the story. Most of the main characters are still in place and ready to embark on new adventures, which means the cast of Vikings: Valhalla season 2 will be led once again by Sam Corlett as Leif Erikson, Frida Gustavsson as Freydis Eirksdóttir, and Leo Suter as Harald Sigurdsson, among others.
Valhalla season 2 is also expected to feature Bradley Freegard in the role of King Canute, Jóhannes Haukur Jóhannesson in the role of Olaf, and Caroline Henderson in the role of Jarl Haakon, and Laura Berlin in the role of Emma of Normandy.
Vikings Valhalla season 2 plot
Since Vikings is about history, it makes sense that season two has a lot to explain.
In the last episode, Kattegat was in ruins and on fire. Freydis and Harald watched the kingdom burn to ash from above.
Leo Suter, who plays Harald, gave Digital Spy a hint about what’s in store for his character and Freyd’s, and about a possible romance between them.
He told us: “These are two people who are… they have a lot to talk about and they work so well together. But at the same time, there are big forces and big passions that are pulling them apart, and as with any sort of love story, there’s… it’s so simple in some respects, but also so complicated in other ways.”
But people saw that Leif was ready to get even for what had happened, especially after his close warrior friend Liv died too soon. Jeb Stuart told Newsweek that the Vikings might travel to other parts of the world and learn about cultures they haven’t seen before.
“They were great traders. So they went to Constantinople, they went to Egypt, they went through the Middle East,” he said. “Viking DNA is found almost all over that part of Europe. They went to the Iberian Peninsula and obviously England and Ireland.
“So you can probably guess that my Vikings are going to get on their boats and explore a little bit.”
Since George Maniakes was added to the cast, it’s safe to assume that at least some of the next season will take place in Sicily.
According to the official synopsis
“In this sequel to “Vikings,” a hundred years have passed and a new generation of legendary heroes arises to forge its own destiny — and make history.”
