Vikings: Valhalla, the much-anticipated offshoot of the fan-favorite History Channel series, is all set to launch on the popular streaming service Netflix this February 2022. The upcoming series is set 100 years after the original show's finale. The series will center around Leif Eriksson, the legendary explorer, played by Sam Corlett, his sister Freydis Eriksdotter, portrayed by Frida Gustavsson, and Nordic prince Harald Sigurdsson, played by Leo Suter.

Michael Hirst, the creator of the series, wanted the historical spinoff to be quite nostalgic. Jeb Stuart, the showrunner of the series, exclaimed in an interview:

“I [knew] what he meant immediately....The goal of the show is that, as we move from season to season, there’s parts of it we’re going to have to give up,...So my goal would be, at the very end, that you suddenly look back on this incredible period of time of both shows and say, ‘Wow, it was really good when they were just killing those Saxons. I miss the purity of that moment."

The ensemble cast for the Netflix show has recently been announced, which entails a combination of British and Scandinavian actors.
