Vikings: Valhalla Season 2 is a Netflix original historical drama series developed by Jeb Stuart. It is a follow-up to History’s Vikings, which was shot in County Wicklow, Ireland. Vikings: Vahalla, a Netflix original that premiered on February 25, 2022, is a historical drama conceived by Michael Hirst and produced by MGM Productions.
Since the premiere of its first season, which was the second most-watched program at the time, people have been eagerly awaiting its sequel.
Vikings: Valhalla Season 2 Cast
The majority of the original cast members from the first season would return for Vikings: Valhalla Season 2. Sam Corlett will very certainly reprise his role as Leif Erikkson, while Frida Gustavsson may reprise her role as Leif’s sister, Freyds Eirksdóttir. Leo Suter might return as the Nordic prince Harald Sigurdsson.
Season 2 is still planned to feature Jóhannes Haukur Jóhannesson as Olaf, Laura Berlin as Emma of Normandy, and David Oakes as Goodwin. Sren Pilmark (who portrays Forkbeard) and Bradley Freegard are two more actors who played key parts in the first season and are expected to return (who plays Canute).
Pollyanna McIntosh, who previously acted in The Walking Dead, announced her participation in Vikings: Valhalla season 2 on Instagram in late August. McIntosh will portray Queen lfgifu, the wife of Cnut the Great and the queen of Norway from 1030 to 1035. Harold Harefoot’s mother was Queen lfgifu. Florian Munteanu, who played Razor Fist in Shang-Chi, has been hired as Maniakes, a Byzantine general.
Vikings: Valhalla Season 2 Plot
Valhalla: Vikings Season 2 is planned to focus on Leif, who has been given an ocean of grief as a result of the Greenlander’s trek to the east. As you are aware, the biggest blow to Leif was the death of Lif, his beloved, whose presence stopped him from becoming his terrible father, Erik the Red. With her death, Leif, like Achilles in the Iliad, donned a pair of axes and tore through the entire gathering of Viking warriors. Season 2 will deal with the consequences of the new Leif.
Vikings: Valhalla made several liberties with the story’s historical veracity, thus deducing plausible scenarios for Season 2 from the Vikings’ historical records will be difficult.
In the concluding episode of Season 1, Harald and Freydis watch as Kattegat burns to the ground. This opens up a world of possibilities for the Vikings to investigate. Stuart provided tiny hints regarding Season 2’s narrative in an interview with Newsweek. He said that the Vikings were explorers who traveled the world in pursuit of new civilizations and experiences:
“They were excellent businessmen. So they proceeded to Constantinople, Egypt, and the Middle East. Viking DNA can be found practically everywhere in that portion of Europe. They visited the Iberian Peninsula, as well as England and Ireland. So you can probably imagine that my Vikings will go on their boats and begin exploring.”
Vikings: Valhalla Season 2 Storyline
The first season of Vikings: Valhalla concluded with a full-fledged conflict between Christian and pagan Viking troops, as well as lots of gore and tragedy.
Freydis and Harald successfully depart the Kingdom of Kattegat, which is now in ruins, confirming the pagan seer’s prophecy that Freydis is “The Last Daughter of Uppsala” is correct, as she is still alive and in possession of the famous sword. Similarly, Harald’s survival implies that the king must find a method to fight King Cnut in the future.
Unlike Freydis and Harald, the series’ second protagonist, Leif, remained in the war-torn realm, mourning his dead companion Liv, who died in his arms. The last episode concludes with Leif in full berserker mode, murdering everyone in sight, including a 14-year-old child who gets into his line of sight before the credits of the previous episode, begin to roll.
Our key characters will embark on new beginnings and arcs in the coming season, one of which will be centered on romance. Yes, love may be in the air between Harald and Freydis in the upcoming season. In an interview with Digital Spy, actor Leo Suter hinted that the two characters’ connection might grow further in season 2.
“These are two people that… they have a lot to speak about, and they get along so well.” At the same time, enormous forces and big passions are dragging them away, and as with every loving tale, they are destined to be apart.”
“It’s so easy in some ways, yet so difficult in others,” he went on. “As a result, season two will be a trip for them, and we’ll get to witness these two headstrong individuals with strong views and convictions figure out what the world has in store for them.”
Vikings: Valhalla Season 2 Release Date
Vikings: Valhalla has been revived for a second and third season. Netflix officially renewed the series for two more seasons on March 9, 2022. According to What’s on Netflix, Vikings: Valhalla’s second and third seasons were renewed so early due to “the big upfront order the show got.” The total number of episodes ordered was 24. Furthermore, Netflix has the licensing rights to the original Vikings series, which will be available on Netflix UK and Netflix US in the coming years.
The season’s filming has been completed by all of the directors and actors. The series concluded filming in Ireland in November 2021. Jeb Stuart, the screenwriter for Vikings: Valhalla, stated that around the time of season 1’s release, he was “finishing the editing of the last episode of season two.” We’re not wasting any time; season 3 is already in the works. Season 3 will begin production in Spring 2022, according to Netflix’s official statement.
In addition, Jeb Stuart told Digital Spy that Season 3 will be “extremely exciting” since the Vikings will be leaving Scandinavia, which we believe will be the season’s turning point. Although Vikings: Valhalla Season 2 has nearly completed post-production, it will not be published until 2023. Netflix hasn’t specified a specific release date. Given the release date of season 1, we can assume that it will premiere in early 2023.
