What Will Be Vikings Valhalla Season 2 Release Date, Plot, Cast?

Vikings Valhalla Season 2: Michael Hirst’s Netflix Original historical drama Vikings: Valhalla is a spin-off of the iconic History Channel series Vikings. The series, like its predecessor, is produced by MGM Productions and aired for six seasons. The events of Vikings: Valhalla take place one hundred years after the Great Viking army, led by Ragnar Lothbrok’s sons, set sail for England in search of vengeance for his death.

Vikings Valhalla Performance on Netflix

We have a pretty solid idea of how well the show is performing according to Netflix Top 10 data. It received 80.56 million hours of viewing in its first two days on the site, making it the week’s second most-watched show. The show was watched 265,550,000 times on Netflix between February 25th and April 3rd, 2022 (the first 37 days it was released).

With this new hourly data, making comparisons is tough, but we can see that Vikings: Valhalla performed better (at least in the first 2-3 weeks) than The Last Kingdom, which was launched in early 2022.

Vikings Valhalla 100 Years Ago Incident

Vikings: Valhalla is set in the year 1002 and will return to classic locations like Kattegat, according to showrunner and writer Jeb Stuart. And, according to a statement released by Netflix, the season will begin with a specific incident that occurred 100 years after the conclusion of the Vikings. He also detailed the context in which it occurred.

“The Vikings had established into large territories called the Danelaw in the British Isles,” Stuart explained. “Not just Danes, but also Swedes, Norwegians, and people from all over Scandinavia had begun to flock to the Danelaw. This had become an issue for King Aethelred II of England, the Saxon king.

“Saxon aristocrats were terrified that if you went back another generation, you wouldn’t be able to tell the difference between Saxons and Vikings,” he continued. “At the same time, the Viking factions in Norway and Denmark were fighting one other in an undefined theological civil war.”

Many of the remaining cast members are almost certain to return for season two, including Sam Corlett (Leif), Frida Gustavsson (Freyds Eirksdóttir), and Leo Suter (Harald Sigurdsson).

The power-hungry Olaf, played by Jóhannes Haukur Jóhannesson, is also expected to return. Because they both have scores to settle, Soren Pilmark (King Sweyn Forkbeard) and Bradley Freegard (King Canute) are more than likely to return.

Vikings Valhalla Season 2 Plot

Naturally, since we’re talking Vikings history, season two has a lot to unpack. Kattegat was in ruins and on fire in the final episode, with Freyds and Harald looking down on the realm as it burned to ash. Leo Suter, who plays Harald, teased Digital Spy about his character’s relationship with Freyd and their future romance.

“These are two guys who have a lot to talk about and they work so well together,” he said. But, at the same time, powerful forces and passionate desires are driving them apart, and, as with any love tale, there’s… it’s so easy in some ways but so convoluted in others.”

However, Leif looked to be prepared to seek retribution for what had happened, particularly following the sudden loss of his close warrior comrade Liv. In an interview with Newsweek, Jeb Stuart revealed that the Vikings will go throughout the world and see cultures they haven’t encountered before.

“They were excellent merchants.” As a result, they travelled to Constantinople, Egypt, and the Middle East,” he explained. “Viking DNA can be found nearly everywhere in that portion of Europe.” They visited the Iberian Peninsula, as well as England and Ireland, of course. “As a result, you can reasonably imagine that my Vikings will jump in their boats and go exploring.”

Vikings Valhalla Season 2 Release Date

The long-awaited MGM’s Vikings, Vikings Valhalla Season 2, was recently released on Netflix. The second season of the show has already been filmed and is set to premiere in 2023, which will please fans of the show. Vikings: Valhalla has been renewed not just for a second season, but also for a third season, which was announced ahead of time.

The early renewal is justified because the programme had a hefty upfront order when it was initially announced. A total of 24 episodes were ordered. As part of the agreement, Netflix acquired the licence rights to the original Vikings series, with seasons 1-6 set to be acquired by Netflix UK and Netflix US in the following years.

Vikings: Valhalla will return for two more seasons on March 9th, 2022, according to Netflix. Given the popularity of the show’s predecessor, Vikings, Netflix is certain that Vikings: Valhalla will be a huge hit.

Beyond a broad release date of 2023, Netflix hasn’t confirmed a specific release date for Vikings Valhalla season 2 as of this writing. However, we can make an educated judgement as to when the second season will be released. With work on the second season wrapping in November 2021, the second season is expected to premiere on Netflix in early 2023, most likely between January and March 2023.


It’s no wonder that Vikings: Valhalla has taken Netflix by storm, becoming the most-watched show on the platform within 24 hours of its debut. The spin-off series, which is mostly based on history and mythology, expands on the original Vikings series by moving it 100 years closer to the present when the world is changing but the war for power continues.

Fans want to know when they’ll see more of the characters (well, the ones who are still alive) after season one’s massacre and nail-biting finale. Vikings Valhalla Seasons 2 and 3  have been renewed by Netflix for March 2022. The cast and crew of season 2 have already concluded production, according to the streaming network. The third season will begin production in the spring of 2022.

That’s fantastic news for fans of the Netflix original series, but it’ll be a bit before they can watch the new season on Netflix.
