Valhalla is one of the most awaited historical action-fiction drama series going to be released on Netflix. The first look of this spin-off to the historical Vikings was included in Netflix Geeked Week on June 7th, 2021.
Being set almost a hundred years after the Vikings, Valhalla started filming in October 2020 in the same Ashford studios where previously Vikings were filmed. The cast includes many well-known names like Laura Berlin, Sam Corlett, Bradley, Frida Gustavsson, Caroline Henderson, Jóhannes Haukur Jóhannesson, AsbjørnKrogh, David Oakes, Julian Seager, Pollyanna McIntosh, Denmark Pääru Oja.
What Can We Expect From Vikings Valhalla?
A lot of elements will be carried forward from the original series. England stands up against the Vikings, and the age of Vikings is near its end. We can see the raw fight for survival in the episodes as men and women try hard to find their place in the world.
The contrast between the old and new will set up a perfect foundation for the series. There will be many stories revolving around the popular Norsemen in history – Freydis Eiriksdottir, Lief Erikson, Harald Hardrada and William the Conqueror.
How Many Episodes Can We Expect?
Sources have confirmed that Netflix has ordered 24 episodes of Vikings Valhalla. So we can expect it to be divided into two parts of 12 episodes each just like the original series, which ran up to six seasons, each season having 20 episodes which were further divided into two parts.
We will find some familiar faces reappearing in some episodes like John Kavanagh, who appears as an ancient seer and others like Karen Connell, Bosco Hogan and Garan O’Connor Duffy.
When Do We Get To See It?
Officially they have not disclosed any release date yet. But it has been in the making for quite some time now. The productions had begun in 2020, keeping in view that in 2021 it would be premiered. But, unfortunately, due to the ongoing pandemic, there has been a delay in wrapping up the filming.
