A Vikings spinoff series is officially coming to Netflix. The streaming service giant has picked up the sequel Valhalla, a series set 100 years after the events of the beloved History Channel original.
Valhalla will take place a century after the Vikings saga concluded, and will dramatize the adventures of the most famous Vikings known to history (sorry, Rgnar!)—Leif Erickon, Freydis, Harald, Harada and Norman King William the Conqueror, also a Viking descendant. The Vikings spinoff series will follow these men and women’s path to survival in an ever changing and evolving Europe.
“Vikings: Valhalla promises to be everything that fans love about the franchise,” Vice President of original series at Netflix chimed. “Heart-pounding, unstoppable action rooted in rich characters and dramatic storytelling that shines the light of family, loyalty, and power. We are thrilled to bring the next iteration of the Vikings saga to life.”
No release window has been announced, and it’s unclear if the 24-episode straight-to-series order will be for one season, or broken up into two separate parts—not to mention it is too early to even talk about a tentative cast.
In the meantime, as we wait for more details on the Vikings spinoff series, at least we can look forward to its prequel’s upcoming sixth and final season on History. December 4, 2019 couldn’t come any sooner!
