Michael Hirst‘s historical drama Vikings: Valhalla, a Netflix Original, is a prequel to the iconic Vikings History Channel series. Due to the popularity of the original Vikings TV series, a spinoff titled Vikings: Valhalla premiered in February 2022. Aafter much anticipation, Vikings: Valhalla’s second season has already been released on Netflix. In Vikings: Valhalla, which takes place more than a century after the events of the main series, we follow the lives of Freydis Eiriksdottir, Leif Erikson, Harald Sigurdsson, his half-brother Olaf Haraldsson, and Queen Emma of Normandy. Season 2 of Vikings: Valhalla picks up where season 1 left off, with Kattegat in ruins and at the mercy of King Sweyn (Søren Pilmark) and his fleet, Leif unleashing his inner berserker, Freydis and Harald fleeing Kattegat, and the pagans searching for a new safe place after the destruction of their homes and the Uppsala temple at the hands of Christian berserkers. Meanwhile, Queen Emma of England is in jeopardy; an assailant who wants her dead is far closer than she realizes.
The second season of Vikings: Valhalla was packed with surprises for Freydis, Leif, Harald, and Queen Emma, and the finale sets the stage for some exciting and potentially disastrous stories for each of the main characters. Season 2 of Vikings: Valhalla has set up season 3 by altering the paths of the key characters’ stories. Since Emma can’t get rid of Godwin because he married Gytha, she’ll be keeping a careful check on him now that she knows his true aim and how far he’s ready to go to obtain it without having his hands dirty. Freydis is now the leader of a city while simultaneously caring for her young boy, a responsibility that is certainly not easy for her to take on. Harald has a new flame in Elena, but he needs a favor from the Emperor of Rome because he can’t go back to Freydis to help raise their son alone because he has no idea where Jomsborg is. Without Liv and Mariam, Leif has only Harald and what Mariam tried to teach him and left him, so he and Harald may decide to remain in Constantinople for some time unless they receive a call to action that compels them to seek out Freydis and possibly Canute as well.
When will Netflix release Vikings: Valhalla season 3?
Fans need not be concerned about the series’ renewal because it has been known from the start that it would receive at least three seasons. The series has already begun filming, and we anticipate its return later in 2023. There is no confirmation of the release date for season 3 on Netflix as of this writing.
