Following the premiere of the Netflix historical drama series “Vikings: Valhalla,” the production crew has already begun work on a second and third season.
Netflix had ordered a 24-episode series order for “Valhalla,” a successor to the History Channel’s original series “Vikings,” which Netflix has confirmed will now be divided into three, eight-episode seasons. Executive producers Jeb Stuart and Sam Corlett (Leif Eriksson), Frida Gustavsson (Freydis Eriksdotter), and Leo Suter (Harald Sigurdsson) will all return for the show’s upcoming second and third seasons.
In “Vikings: Valhalla,” Sam Corlett plays Leif Eriksson, his fiery and headstrong sister Freydis Eriksdotter plays Freydis Eriksdotter, and the ambitious Nordic prince Harald Sigurdsson is played by Frida Gustavsson (Leo Suter). These three Vikings go on an epic voyage from Kattegat to England and beyond as the rivalry between Vikings and English royals reach a bloody breaking point and the Vikings themselves clash over their conflicting Christian and pagan beliefs.
Netflix has finished filming “Valhalla” Season 2 and expects to release the new episodes in 2023. It’s scheduled to begin filming in the spring. 113.38 million hours were viewed in the first season of “Vikings: Valhalla” when it premiered on Netflix on Feb. 25. A total of 194 million hours were viewed in the first nine days of the show’s release, making it one of the most-watched shows on the site.
Morgan O’Sullivan, Michael Hirst, Sheila Hockin, Steve Stark, James Flynn, John Weber, Sherry Marsh, Alan Gasmer, and Paul Buccieri are also executive producers. ‘Valhalla’ is a product of MGM Television.
“Fans of Valhalla – THANK YOU to the millions of you who have watched (and rewatched!) Season One,” Stuart said in a statement on Wednesday. Astonishingly high figures have surpassed even my most optimistic predictions.
I’m delighted to announce that Season Two has been completed and is currently being edited and that work on Season Three will begin shortly. With all due respect, I can’t reveal the plots for Leif and the rest of the characters because they’re still under wraps, but I can tell you without a doubt that their travels are going to be even more epic than what you’ve seen thus far. SKÅL!!!”
Peter Friedlander, Netflix’s head of scripted programs in the US and Canada, added: “The fans have spoken, and we couldn’t be happier than to deliver them more of the epic adventure and pulse-pounding action they love. A new generation of Vikings and stories have been presented thanks to Jeb Stuart, who has expertly transported this iconic narrative 125 years into the future. As far as I’m concerned, there’s plenty more to do and conflicts to fight!”
