Netflix decided to give us a new spin-off series to one of the best performing series ever to grace our screens, Vikings. It is a Netflix Original created by Michael Hirst and produced by MGM Productions that handled Vikings.
The series was given a huge episode order, just like its predecessor, Vikings. It is expected to run for three seasons, carrying 24 episodes each. If you loved Vikings and would like to see something related on your screens, then this series is worth the wait. Let’s delve into the gritty details and see what Netflix has in store for us.
Vikings: Valhalla Release Date: When will it air?
The new Vikings spin-off will be released in late 2022 or early 2023 due to the Covid 19 Pandemic, which interfered with filming. Its first look was released on June 7, 2021, as part of Netflix’s Geeked Week. Lots of fresh pictures then followed at Netflix’s TUDUM event.
If you were planning on movies to binge on in the coming year, you should add this new spinoff to your bucket list.
Vikings: Valhalla Plot: What will happen?
What’s a series without a plot? Vikings Valhalla is set over a century after the events of Vikings. It begins in the early 11th century and documents the adventures of some of the most renowned Vikings ever to grace the earth, Freydis Eriksdotter, Leif Eriksson, Norman King William the Conqueror, and Harald Hardrada.
The men and women featured will create a path as they fight for survival in a constantly changing world. First, in an interview, the show creator hinted that the new spin-off series would be connected to Vikings, the original show. You should therefore expect lots of similar locations.
Most of the actors in Vikings, such as Ragnar Lothbork, Lagertha, Bjorn Ironside, and Ivar the Boneless, are mythic characters in this new show, which gives the two a great connection and effect.
First-time viewers won’t have to know who these people were to enjoy the new show. However, it enriches it, and therefore, you will definitely have people going back to find out who the mythic characters are.
Vikings: Valhalla Cast: Who will appear?
Who should you expect in Netflix: Valhalla? Well, the new show has lots of able actors from renowned series. Expect Sam Corlett, who acted in Chilling Adventures of Sabrina. He is destined to play Leif Eriksson, a brave sailor, and Greenlander.
The show will also star Frida Gustavsson from The Witcher, who will be playing Freydis Eriksdotter. Other actors include Leo Suter from The Liberator as Harald Sigurdsson, Bradley Freegard of Keeping Faith as King Canute, Joanne’s Haukur Johannesson from Cursed as Olaf Haraldson, Laura Berlin from Breaking Even as Emma of Normandy, David Oakes from The Borgias as Earl Godwin, Caroline Henderson from Christmas Star as Jarl Haakon, Pollyanna McIntosh from The Walking Dead as Queen Alegifu and Asbjorn Krohh Nissen from Brin as Jarl Kare.
If you are wondering whether the new show will include anyone from the original Vikings, the answer is yes. You should expect John Kavanagh, Bosco Hogan, Karen Connell, and Gavan Duffy.
