‘Vikings: Valhalla’ Season 2: Everything We Know Right Now
- Netflix renewed ‘Vikings: Valhalla’ for season 2
- ‘Vikings: Valhalla’ Season 2 premieres on Netflix in 2023
- Leo Suter, Frida Gustavsson, and Sam Corlett return in ‘Vikings: Valhalla’ Season 2
Netflix released Vikings: Valhalla, a spinoff of the History’s Vikings, in February 2022. Fans have been waiting for more information about Vikings: Valhalla Season 2 since then. Luckily, Netflix obliged.
Is ‘Vikings: Valhalla’ renewed for season 2?
Vikings: Valhalla is coming back for season 2. Netflix ordered 24 episodes before the first season premiered, according to Variety.
Netflix confirmed Vikings: Valhalla is renewed for season 2 and season 3 in March 2022. The streaming network also revealed the cast and crew wrapped already production on season 2. Production for the third season begins sometime in the spring of 2022.
That’s great news for fans of the Netflix original series, but it’s probably going to be a while until fans get to see the new season on Netflix.
‘Vikings: Valhalla’ Season 2 release date has not been announced
Although production on season 2 is finished, Netflix withheld the season 2 release date when announcing the renewal.
Luckily, Netflix did provide an update on the release date. According to Netflix, the season 2 release date will be sometime in 2023.
Fans thought there was a chance that we could see season 2 on Netflix in 2022. The first season premiered in February. The cast and crew already filmed the second season. That theory made sense, but Netflix clearly had other plans for the new season.
The second season could be released on Netflix early in 2023 if everything goes well, but that is speculation right now.
‘Vikings: Valhalla’ Season 2 cast
Netflix announced Friday Gustavsson, who stars as Freydís Eiríksdóttir, Leo Suter, who stars as Harald Sigurdsson, and Sam Corlett, who stars as Leif Erikson, will all be back in the season 2 cast. As mentioned earlier, the trio has already filmed their scenes for the second season of the Netflix original series.
Netflix has not revealed the other characters from the first season who will be in the new season, but Netflix did confirm that we will see other characters in season 2. Based on how the first season ended, fans expect we’ll see more from Bradley Freegard, Jóhannes Haukur Jóhannesson, Laura Berlin, and David Oakes in the new season.
Caroline Henderson, who starred as Jarl Haakon in season 1, hinted the character will be back in the second season despite dying in the first season, according to Metro.
Henderson told Metro, “We don’t really know that [she won’t be back].”
If Jarl Haakon could be back, any other character killed in the first season could also, technically, return in the second season.
How many episodes are in the new season?
The second season of Vikings: Valhalla consists of eight episodes. There were also eight episodes in the first season of the Netflix original series, and there will be eight episodes in the third season, as well.
Vikings: Valhalla showrunner Jeb Stuart also has big plans for the series beyond the third season.
Here’s what Stuart told Digital Spy:
“My story carries on past [a third season] and I would love more time to tell the full story, I would love more time to get to the fact that William the Conqueror puts an end to the Viking Age. That story involves Harald Sigurdsson and that story involves a lot of our characters like Emma and Godwin, so I am hoping that audiences love Valhalla and this cast, who are a brilliant cast, and we get the chance to tell the whole story.”Jeb Stuart to Digital Spy
Audiences loved the first season of the series. If the second and third seasons perform well, Netflix should renew Vikings: Valhalla for more seasons, assuming Stuart and the rest of the creative team are interested in continuing these stories.
