When will Vikings: Valhalla Series 2 Be Released?

Netflix’s Vikings Valhalla was instantly successful when it hit the screens earlier this year. Although it was confirmed that a second series was already in the can at the time of its release, fans have been eagerly awaiting confirmation of the release date. Unfortunately, the bad news is that it still has not been confirmed, and the best guess is that it will be early 2023, around a year from the first series.

The show’s creator, Jeb Stuart, told Digital Spy in May that he had just finished editing the last episode of season two and was dying to get it out there.

In an interview, he said that Netflix had also given the green light for a third season. In the third season, the Vikings will travel outside of Scandinavia. He said that there would be plenty of surprises and new stories.

Season one was an astounding success. The creator issued a statement via Netflix which said,

“Thank you to the millions of you who have watched (and rewatched!) season one. The numbers have been mind-boggling and beyond my wildest expectations. I’m thrilled to be able to confirm that we wrapped and are already editing season two and that production will start soon on season three.”

“While the storylines for Leif, Freydís, 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.”

The show has been such a phenomenal success. Season One premiered on 25th February and was the streaming service’s number one show for that week, with over 113.38 M hours viewed. It was in the top ten in ninety countries. In the first two days, it garnered eighty-point five million viewing hours. One hundred and ninety-four million hours were viewed in the first nine days.

The cast for season two will include Sam Corlett as Leif, Frida Gustavsson as Freydis Eiríksdóttir, and Loe Sutur as Harald Sigurdsson. We can also expect to see Jóhannes Haukur Jóhannesson as Olaf. There is no doubt that there will be many more bloody battle scenes.

So far, Netflix has not released a trailer for Series 2, so for now, we are all going to have to imagine the feel and look of the new series. At the end of series 1, Kattegat lay in ruins, and Freydis and Harald watched on as the kingdom burned to ash. We will have to wait to see what twists the screenwriters will throw up next. There is sure to be an element of revenge.

Netflix’s head of US / Canada Scripted Series, Peter Friedlander, has said,

“The fans have spoken, and we couldn’t be more thrilled than to bring them more of the epic adventure and heart-pounding action they love. Jeb Stuart has masterfully taken this beloved saga 125 years into the future and introduced a whole new generation of Vikings and stories that have resonated with new and existing fans worldwide. There is plenty more to avenge and more battles to fight!”

There are some alternatives for anyone who cannot wait for their next fix of Viking adventures. The series was shot almost exclusively in Ireland in the Wicklow mountains and surrounding area, and it is relatively easy to find many of the locations traveling through the area. Additionally, numerous Viking sites and festivals can be visited throughout Scandinavia, and Europe, including impressive ship remains and reconstructions. If that is too far afield, NJ online casino sites, feature a Viking Reign slot game where players can go marauding for Viking treasure.
